  • The triangle stained window is centered with a double ring from the inside, but from the outside it has a single ring.
  • When Dipper is showing Journal 3 to Mabel, the page Dipper wrote at the end of the episode can be seen, even though he hadn't written that page yet.
  • The order of the pages in Journal 3 are different from the first time Dipper opens the Journal and when he shows Mabel the journal when he attempts to convince her that Norman is a zombie. The book's introduction is shown to follow the page that says "TRUST NO ONE," when in actuality the introduction is at the very beginning of the book.

The Legend of the Gobblewonker

  • When Old Man McGucket says "Aw, banjo polish!" when leaving the dock, his mouth doesn't move.
  • In Mabel's fantasy, Xyler initially has blue-framed sunglasses, and Craz has pink-framed sunglasses. After Mabel talks to them, they both have pink frames.
  • When Soos grabs Dipper by the top of the life-jacket when they are running away from the Gobblewonker, one shot shows Dipper's shirt pulled up by the life jacket, exposing his stomach. However, in the next shot, his shirt is not pulled up.
  • When Soos is throwing the cameras at the Gobblewonker, some cameras randomly appear in his hand.

  • Mabel's eyebrows and eyelashes are missing just before she says "Are you saying you could outwit Duck-tective?"
  • When Stan is introducing the wax figures to the twins and Soos, Wax Larry King is shown to be nearly the same height as Wax Sherlock Holmes, but in other shots, he is much shorter.
  • Mabel's drawings of her sculpture ideas have color, but she uses one regular pencil.
  • Wax Stan is missing in the shot where Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland laugh at Dipper.
  • When Mabel says "Even us!" the button on her disposable camera disappears.
  • Dipper and Mabel make a scribbled line on Mikey R.'s row on their checklist. However, in a later scene, this mark is instead shown on the Angry lady's row.
  • When the security footage of Toby is shown for the first time, the clock starts at 10:00 with the seconds ticking off. However, the second time it is shown, the clock still says 10:00 and the seconds are reset at 0.
  • When Wax Sherlock Holmes decapitates Wax Stan and he looks at the head, the design on the fez is a simple crescent, rather than the actual design.

  • Before Mabel shows her makeover to Dipper, Dipper's book appears to be Journal 2 instead of 3. The book labeled 2 belongs to Gideon Gleeful, so this is impossible. Alex Hirsch acknowledged that this was, in fact, an animation error.[1]
  • When Mabel shows Dipper her makeover, Dipper sets Journal 3 on the chair, but when Soos enters, the book is gone.

For most of the scene, there are eight characters, but only seven geographical locations.
  • As the character selection scene continues, Dipper moves the selector to Joe Zambique of Mozambique.
