Continuity 

During the song "I'm Mean" Bluto picks up large chair. Three people standing by a window disperse to avoid being hit by the chair when Bluto turns to throw it out the window. We see Bluto throw the chair, but when the camera cuts back to the window it is not the chair but a small barrel that goes through the window.

Miscellaneous 

The Paramount logo used at the opening was never used for any of the Paramount Popeye cartoons, though it is portrayed as being from a Popeye cartoon. Also, the opening credits sequence shown (doors of the wooden ship) was from the earlier Fleischer Studios cartoons, as opposed to the later Paramount cartoons.

Revealing mistakes 

As per the info in the trivia section of this film, the make up and appliances for Popeye's massive forearms were not ready. So in some scenes, especially the boxing match, if you look at the inside of his forearms, you can see that they are merely flesh colored pads tied over Robin Williams' arms (the strings are visible).
