10 Disney movie mistakes you missed

Sometimes, the best movies have some flaws – even when they’re made by Disney. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 Disney movie mistakes you missed.

For this list, we’re looking at tiny mistakes in Disney movies that you will now never unsee.

#10: Tiger Takes a Bite of…Something
“Aladdin” (1992)

In this Disney classic, strong-willed Princess Jasmine know what she wants – and what she wants is NOT the obnoxious Prince Achmed. Jasmine’s tiger, Rajah, is on the same page and he dispenses with this unwanted suitor by taking a bite out of his purple pants. Insulted, the prince flees, his heart-pattern underwear clearly showing through a hole in his pants. Yet when we get a close-up of Rajah, the fabric in his mouth clearly matches Achmed’s underwear. Guess we’re all just thankful he wasn’t going commando that day.

#9: King Candy Just Doesn’t Want to Go Away
“Wreck-It Ralph” (2012)

Poor Vanellope von Schweetz was dealt a crappy hand in “Wreck-It Ralph,” what with her video game-based kingdom having been taken away from her by the evil King Candy ‘n’ all. All traces of Vanellope’s rightful place as Princess have been wiped away. King Candy has plastered his name and logo all over everything like a pixelated Donald Trump. So when Vanellope and Ralph win and everything is reset the way it’s supposed to be – why can we still see King Candy’s name and logo on one of the buildings? Guess Ralph was too busy celebrating to wreck it to pieces.

#8: Mr. Potato Head’s Magic Eye
“Toy Story 3” (2010)

Part of the appeal of Mr. Potato Head is how easy it is to change his appearance – and even his personality – with a little accessorizing. But can we have a little consistency, please? In this scene, Andy is pretending Mr. Potato Head is the evil One-Eyed Bart, and yes, he has one eye. But when Andy’s Mom comes into the room with a video camera, and Andy gives her a close-up look at his toys, the potato fiend suddenly has two eyes. Either that’s a mistake or that video camera comes with some serious CGI capability.

#7: Easy-to-Escape Shackles
“Tangled” (2010)

Sure, we know Rapunzel and Flynn Rider are just cartoon characters, but their relationship is so beautifully realized that it’s sometimes easy to forget this fact. Maybe that’s why when a little bit of unreality interrupts Flynn’s big death scene, it’s so jarring. Our hero is dying, and clearly shackled so no escape is possible. Rapunzel has just agreed to sacrifice her freedom and happiness so he can live, and Flynn raises his shackled hand to stroke her face. Only that shackle has somehow disappeared. And it’s somehow back moments later, when he cuts off her hair, dooming himself but ensuring Rapunzel will be free. Spoiler: It all ends happily, though.

#6: Who Needs Glasses Anyway?
“Inside Out” (2015)

Eyes and shackles aren’t the only things that can appear and disappear at random in a Disney film. We won’t blame you if you didn’t notice this scene in “Inside Out,” though; after all, heroine Riley is a distractingly cute little baby. At first, the audience is looking at the baby over the shoulders of her mother and father – and her mom is clearly wearing glasses. But in the next cut, the audience is looking up at the parents from baby Riley’s point of view. Guess what? No glasses. Yes, maybe she decided contacts were a better choice, but when did she have time to put them in?

#5: The Beat of a Different Drum
“Lilo & Stitch” (2002)

The incredibly adorable Lilo very definitely marches to the beat of a different drum – but this is taking that saying a little too literally. When we’re first introduced to the adorable leading lady, Lilo has her mind on pretty much anything else than being on time for her hula class. At the class, two men are providing musical accompaniment for the dancers, each playing a drum that is kind of gourd-shaped. Yet when we see these men after Lilo’s comment about Pudge the fish, one of those drums is now a more traditional drum shape. Maybe Pudge also has power over musical instruments?

#4: Shy Shadows
“Pocahontas” (1995)

The love story of Pocahontas and John Smith creates a kind of magic onscreen, but that doesn’t give the filmmakers an excuse to bend the laws of Nature. In the scene where Nakoma comes to fetch Pocahontas and take her to see the captured John Smith, the two women walk back to the camp holding hands. Yet as they approach the camp, their shadows clearly are not holding hands. That’s just not possible, folks, unless the shadows have a mind of their own like in “Peter Pan.” Maybe those shadows are a little shy about expressing affection, but come on, we’re all friends here!

#3: Toys Don’t Have a Reflection
“Toy Story 2” (1999)

Vampires are well-known for not casting a reflection, but as far as we know, the characters in “Toy Story 2” are not blood suckers… unless there’s something Hamm and Rex are not telling us. Why do we wonder? Because when Hamm turns off the TV, the screen goes black, and we can see the room reflected in the blank screen – but we can’t see either Hamm or Rex, who are standing right in front of it. Maybe their shy reflections should go on a date with Pocahontas and Nakoma’s shadows.

#2: The Sword from Nowhere
“Frozen” (2013)

“Frozen” has a spectacular climactic finish that leaves audience members at the edge of their seats, but that doesn’t mean it all makes sense. For example, we clearly see the villainous Hans approaching Elsa – totally unarmed, with not even a sheath to contain a sword. Yet we then hear a sword being unsheathed and then suddenly see a sword magically appear in Hans’ hands. And no, it’s not a really sharp icicle, it’s a legitimate sword. Kind of a big one, which makes you think Hans may be compensating for something – but that’s another story.

Before we reveal our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Kristoff’s Instrument is Missing a Peg
“Frozen” (2013)

Newspaper Headline is from 40 Years in the Future
“The Incredibles” (2004)

Jasmine’s Arm Band Switches Arms
“Aladdin” (1992)

#1: Cinderella’s Disappearing Sleeves
“Cinderella” (1950)

On one level, “Cinderella” is all about the wardrobe, right? After all, her animal friends help her make a gorgeous gown that her jealous stepsisters rip to shreds. Then that handy fairy godmother gives her the ball gown to end all ball gowns and iconic glass slippers to match. Everything ends happily ever after, with Cinderella marrying her prince in yet another stunning outfit. One with very long sleeves. Except, when she’s riding away in her carriage, we see her again through the rear window – and girl, what happened to those sleeves? Maybe her fairy godmother wasn’t feeling her first look.
