  • Julian said that one is meant to take their pet with them to Amy's Animal Day talk, but he did not take Jess with him.
  • Doctor Gilbertson should know that she cannot overtake Pat unless she is driving an ambulance.
  • While Jess is searching for the bats up the tree in Pat's garden, PAT 1 can be seen parked outside the house, even though it is meant to be back at the Sorting Office.
  • Julian has brought a load of apples with him, even though he said in "Postman Pat and the Pink Slippers" that he does not like fruit that much.
  • The door of Ted's Mill opened slightly even though Julian shut it completely.
  • As the bats fly out through the door of Ted's Mill, they some how manage to push the door open a bit more in order to get out; in real life, they would not be strong enough to do so.
  • It is not explained where or how Julian managed to store so many apples upon his person.
  • For some reason, Alf traveled up to the Vets in the back of Ted's Lorry instead of his tractor.
