When Jen is at Aughra's home, and Aughra is speaking to him, she says, "Listen, Gelfling, there is much to be learned... and you have no time." Aughra's mouth moves one too many times - kind of like watching a Chinese movie dubbed into English! Also, she had been chewing on her hair, which fell out of her mouth when she spoke, but in the next shot, it was back in her mouth again.

When the evil Ritual Master calls for the crystal bats to fly away to watch Jen and Kira you can see thin white strings as the bats fly from the castle ceiling.

The Gelfling puppets have three fingers and one thumb on each hand. When Kira and Jen make their way into the castle via a mouth-like entrance, Kira's right hand has five fingers in the long shot (actors, not puppets, were used for long shots of the Gelflings).

In the "Chamber of Life", when SkekTek says, "Position the reflector", he is in the background, but his mouth is not moving as he says it.

At the beginning of the movie, when Jen says, "The Skekses killed my mother and father", his mouth only moves for the "my mother and father" part.
