Continuity mistake: In the Wicked Witch's room, she puts Toto in Dorothy's basket which now has a lid on both sides of it. Later when the boys come to rescue her, Dorothy walks over toward the hourglass, and picks up the same basket and it now has no lids on it (like earlier in the movie). (01:17:20 - 01:23:50)????
Visible crew/equipment: The four run away from the guards and leave the tower where the Wicked Witch is eventually melted. If you look closely in the two long shots from above them, the Tin Man reflects the bright stage light that is placed below them at the first bend of the walkway, on top of the Witch's castle. (01:25:25)????
Continuity mistake: As they enter the scene with the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow falls and then jumps over a patch of weeds growing in the middle of the Yellow Brick Road. In the next shot he does the exact same thing only about three feet behind the patch of weeds that he jumped over before. (00:48:00)????

Continuity mistake: As they approach Vin Din Dop in Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore's helicopter there's a close-up of Captain Willard looking out of the helicopter. If you look closely there's no wind because the helicopter is not flying. In the next shot as Colonel Kilgore talks to Lance about surfing, it is and there's plenty of wind. (00:36:15)????

Other mistake: Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore says, "You smell that? Do you smell that? I love the smell of Napalm in the morning", right after the jet attack and there's no indication that his character isn't smelling exactly what he says he is. There's no way he could possibly smell Napalm in the ten seconds of uninterrupted movie time that has elapsed from the attack. The explosion is several hundred yards away and looking at the smoke canisters, quite a brisk wind is blowing all the smoke away from them and not in their direction. (00:49:15)????

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy walks on the pig sty Zeke walks to his right, looks into, than passes the bucket on the right because it's empty. He then picks up the bucket behind it on the bench and proceeds to feed the pigs. He empties the first bucket then picks up the second empty bucket, which is now three quarters full. (00:03:55)????
