Anachronisms 

Sinbad and his people are worshipers of Allah, which would have been 700AD or later, but the Greek god worship references were from 500BC and earlier.

Dione's dress is clearly a modern dress with a zipper in the back.

The presence of the sabre toothed cat (Smilodon or Megantereon) altogether, because they went extinct at around 10,000 BC (12,000 years ago).

When Sinbad sets out to reveal the baboon to Melanthius, Melanthius opts instead to demonstrate his telepathic powers by identifying the concealed creature without looking upon it. As he does so, he describes it as "an arboreal anthropoid of the genus, Papio", a taxonomic classification that would not be established until 1777.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Sinbad and his crew exchange their first lines of the picture, Maroof can be seen speaking to Sinbad with an annoyed facial expression, but no audio comes out.

When the mosquito is becoming enlarged, it can be heard buzzing for quite a while before it starts to move its wings.

Continuity 

When Zenobia's son is killed and she goes down the steps to see him at the end of the film, you clearly see she is wearing two shoes and no longer has the bird's claw on her right foot.

The eye patch worn by Zabid changes sides between the right eye and the left during the sequence when he intercepts Zenobia's boat, indicating reversed shots.

During the time that Zenobia transformed herself into the seagull, the locket is visible with the magic elixir around the seagull's neck, but when the seagull is in flight, the locket is nowhere to be found.

The Troglodyte disappears after its battle with the Tiger. It cannot be seen even on the wide shot when the temple is collapsing.

On Zenobia's boat, during the animated shots the minotaur rows clockwise - mimicking the motion of the oars - but in the live shots he rows counter-clockwise.

During Dione's introduction on "Casgar" (after she calls off the rock-throwers) there are two reaction shots, one of Hassan, the other of Maroof. These are obviously from the later "Hyberborea" segment. The hilly backgrounds and the fact that Maroof is suddenly bare-chested give the inserts away.

When the group go off in their boat, there is a view of a waxing crescent Moon, i.e. about 3 days after New Moon. We then see the Moon at First Quarter, which is 7 days after New Moon, and a couple of minutes later a view out of the entrance of the ice cavern shown the Moon as a waxing crescent again.

As Zenobia is traveling down the ice cavern by boat with her son, she is wearing black gloves in one shot and then in the next, they're gone. Cutting back to the original angle, they're back on once again.

Revealing mistakes 

When Sinbad (Wayne) fights the giant saber-tooth tiger in the ending sequence, the tiger has no shadow while Sinbad has several shadows.

As the sabre-tooth tiger is pacing around, its claws are always exposed. Being a member of the cat family the claws would be retractable and only be visible when attacking.

The foreground characters and backgrounds (of Petra) are in focus, yet the characters in-between are out of focus in almost every single blue-screen shot set outside Melantheus's castle. This is optically impossible.
