Continuity mistake: When everyone is dancing because the witch is dead, joyous soldiers are marching in a straight line, just before the three dancers who represent the lullaby league sing. In one wide shot there are many Munchkins dancing over to form a crowd to the right of the soldiers, but in the next shot all the Munchkins are already standing in one big perfectly formed crowd.

Visible crew/equipment: When Dorothy lands in Oz and exits the house to Munchkinland, the camera pans around the land. When it slowly pans over a large bed of tall flowers, you can clearly see a very large shadow passing over them. Obviously the shadow of camera equipment or a camera crane. (00:19:10)

Revealing mistake: When the house lands in Oz, it lands with a bump and Dorothy is laying on her bed with Toto. The objects in the room had moved about a lot due to the twister, and wires attached to the end of the bed and the chair, etc. are really quite clear. (00:18:12)
