When Jim Hardy plays the bells on the Christmas tree at Holiday Inn, he hits the two bells twice, but in both cases, gets different tones the second time. This happens again, almost identically, when Linda Mason plays the bells on the movie set.

The calendars shown for the last part of the film are from 1942, except for November, which is from 1941. The progression of calendars goes December 1941, February 1942, April 1942, July 1942, November 1941, and December 1942. This November calendar portrays the second-to-last vs. fourth Thursday Thanksgiving day confusion, started in 1939 by presidential proclamation, and cleared up by congressional legislation in 1941 for the 1942 calendar.

During the opening shot Ted Hanover gets out of a cab in front of the night club. Three little boys are playing the harmonica and dancing. They are dancing to "Singing A Song Of Freedom" which Jim Hardy does not write until the Fourth of July more than a year later.

Revealing mistakes 

The April calendar preceding Easter Parade clearly has a 31 after the 30th, though April does not have 31 days. A bunny's head hides the digit "1", but the "3" of the "31" is clearly visible.

During the "Easter Parade" number it is clear that the backgrounds are painted and placed behind a few "real" trees and bushes. This is especially noticeable in Hi-Def.
