Character error 

When Thum comes to visit Dr. Andrassy at his home, Dr. Andrassy seems a little surprised and tells him, "I told you never to come here at night." At the end of the scene, Dr. Andrassy says to Thum that he'll seem him at the doctor's home again the following night at 8:00pm, even though at the beginning of the scene he told him never to go to his house at night.

Miscellaneous 

The inscription in the ring reads "In canis corpore transmuto", which is supposed to mean "I transmute into a dog's body" in Latin. That is, however, a grammatical mistake, because the correct Latin sentence should read "... in canis corporem..." (in the accusative case) instead of "... in canis corpore..." (which is the ablative case).
