Post what you have found.  Everyone makes mistakes.

I'll start off with this one:



This is no split second flub....Silverweed must be double jointed if he can get his toes to bend out like that.  :doh  :rolleyes  That's on screen for quite some time.  Must've been rookies or something because Silverweed looks like he stayed out on the town all night and got no sleep.

Never noticed that before. :lol I'll have to see what I can find tommorow (if I can find any), and post them. I usually catch mistakes.

Example: In Redwall, when he was trying to get the slaves out of Marshank, Keyla's hood kept changing from red-orange to pale green. Yet he was never seen (even implied) changing the hoods except for when the red-orange one was seen lying on the ground and he was wearing the green one again. I could go on, but then I would be going off topic too much since this is a WSD topic.

Always fun catching WSD instances where there's a scene between Hazel and Fiver, and suddenly Hawkbit's there and Fiver's gone. ;D Part of me thinks this was done on purpose.

There are at least two episodes, when there is Hawkbit in one scene and then we see Fiver replacing him for a few seconds: Tail of Mouse and Winter on Watership Down.

It's also in a few clips during escape from Efrafa, when Hazel, Fiver, Blackavar, and Primrose are imprisoned.

There is a scene that I remember in a certain episode where Vervain walks like a human for over a second, although his forelegs cannot be seen. There are a lot of instances in the beginning of the movie which look very awkward. Could probably think of more.

It's quite obvious were they messed up in this scene. :lol

The infamous cemetery scene from the film where Bigwig performs his disappearing act:

...and if you look the close at the two tan rabbits in the first picture (at the front and back of the group), they have twins in the second picture. :lol

^ That's because its a frame-by-frame capture of the scene.  Also, that could in itself be a limitation of the PAL video format since this was from the 2003 anniversary DVD release.  I'm not exactly positive.

Found this one of Campion while watching my music video again, in the first picture you'll see that the skin
under his eye is pink, and a few seconds later in the second, its brown like the rest of his face. This was something
that I never noticed while making it. :doh
