Continuity mistake: When Fievel is curiously wandering around below the ship's deck he discovers three barrels of herring, each one of which is specifically marked for breakfast, lunch and dinner (dinner being closest to the staircase).

Continuity mistake: When Trusty is having a dream on his porch, a striped caterpillar makes his way down from a potted plant on the front door's right side. So Trusty - still asleep - sniffs his way along the porch's floorboards where the caterpillar falls between a crack. Suddenly he wakes up to see Lady and Jock waiting at the staircase. In the next shot he's asking which way the caterpillar went, but if you look at the plant behind him you can see how it's now placed on the door's left side instead. (00:12:00)

But when the evil spirit's pages are flipping out of control in the next shot, the Care Bears are still staring of course, but their light beams are not visible at all. (01:03:05)

Continuity mistake: During breakfast, the phone rings and Alvin sprints across the kitchen to fetch it. It's just Theodore playing back a doctored recording of Dave meant for Miss Miller to hear.

In the next shot where Alvin panics, look in the background: now there's no cord hooked up to the phone. (00:12:35)

Fright Night mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Jerry has Charley pinned to the cracked bedroom wall by his neck, he suddenly drags him over to the window a few feet away - which is nailed securely to the frame - and lifts it up effortlessly.
