Labyrinth Goofs

"Er, someone wasn't on top of their game that day..."
See the goofs, blunders and plain ole mistakes in the 1986 Family movie starring David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, Toby Froud More Cast

We believe the following are all legit mistakes. If we've bungled it, or you have additional info, please update us.

Thanks to Amy
When the Firey's are singing there's a close up of one of them and he opens his mouth really far and you can see through his mouth to the background.
Thanks to Stormy Fogle
From one camera angle in the movie, where Sarah kisses Hoggle and they almost fall in the Bog of Eternal Stench, they can be seen popping back out again!
Thanks to Katie, Rachel, Romana H and Carole
After Sarah pulls Hoggle away from the edge of the cliff leading to the Bog of Eternal Stench & Hoggle asks why she kissed him, the rocks below their feet cave out & the camera view switches to show them falling. Well, for a few seconds in that view, a boom mic can be seen on the top of the screen!
Thanks to Rachel, Brianna And Marcelino
Just before the worm directs Sara to 'try walking through it' about the wall across from her, she has just finished throwing a little fit about the path going 'on and on' and she hits the walls on BOTH sides and at that time there was no passage.
Thanks to Rachel S. And Shan
During the scene with Jareth dancing with Toby to "Dance Magic Dance" (or whatever that song is) you can see at two points that the baby he is holding is not real. The doll has lots of blonde curly hair.
Thanks to Heather Thompson
When Sarah throws her lipstick at her mirror in her room, it magically appears in her pocket again when she is walking around the labyrinth and writing on the tiles.
Thanks to Erynn
During the scene in Jareth's castle with the goblins, as he is singing and jumping around, the strings from the goblins can be seen across the light from the window.
Thanks to Faery Goddess And Marysian
When Hoggle makes his daring attempt to stop the goblin driving the big metal goblin, he jumps off after making the robot break. When he lands, he barely hits the large spikes at the edge of the wall, but they wobble; they're obviously not real! :)
Thanks to Kathy Evans
In the scene where Jareth gives the peach to Hoggle, the first shot of Jareth in front of the tree shows fake birds on the branches. You can tell by the way they move - a la "Wizard of Oz". But in the next few shots of the birds in that scene, they're real.
Thanks to Anonymous
When Sarah breaks out of the crystal ballroom and is falling through space there is a point when you see the wire she is hanging from.
Thanks to Shantel
At the end of the movie when Sarah recites the lines that make the goblin king turn into an owl she leaves out the sentence 'To take back the child that you have stolen'. She practices this at the start of the movie in the park when we first hear her say the words.
Thanks to Hrr
During the scene where everyone is fighting the giant metal goblin robot the great dog Ambrosius bumps the "metal" spikes and shakes them around making them look quite fake.
Thanks to Cheyenne
In the magic dance scene when Jareth is seen throwing Toby into the air, he stumbles into the goblin to the left..

Bogus Blunders

Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake

The following goofs for "Labyrinth" are apparently bogus. If you disagree or have additional info, please update us.

When Bowie sings "Dance magic dance", he throws Toby in the air a few times. The last time he throws Toby in the air, Toby has his back towards the camera. But when the goblin catches Toby, he's facing the camera again.

If you watch this scene carefully, as he throws the doll up in the air, the doll actually does turn around mid-air, and come back down facing out. So live Toby is really facing the correct direction.
Goof: The first stage of the Labyrinth is also the area for the Cleaners... You can see the line on the floor that the Cleaner runs along and the walls are unmistakeably similar... Also, after the junk lady sends Sarah into the copy of her room, a poster of the Cleaners is visible for a split second!

Explanation: If you look in Sarah's room in the beginning when the camera pans to her infront of her mirror she has Hoggle as a bookstop, a stuffed toy of Sir Didymus, a poster of the room with the crazy stairs, a copy of Labyrinth, the snowglobe with the dress she wears in the ballroom scene, a small pegboard that is a maze, AND even an action figure of Jareth (which I have as well) It's showing things from the Labyrinth before she gets into it. So we're pretty sure that was in there on purpose.
