Goofs

Anachronisms 

The marching band at the end has Mellophones. These instruments were invented around 1966 and didn't become popular for another 10 years or so. In 1954 the band would have been playing French horns.

Anachronisms 

This movie was set in 1954, but in numerous street scenes more modern "cobrahead" streetlight fixtures are seen. That type of streetlight was first introduced in 1957.

Boom mic visible 

A boom mic is visible in the upper right hand corner in the trees of the school parking lot, as Mickey walks forward to ask Billy and Tommy if the plans for Cherry Forever are set for the night.

Character error 

During the final confrontation, when Porky is threatening the boys with a white bat, he swings the bat slightly and hits his own guy to his right on the nose.

Continuity 

Chili appears and disappears from the counter after Meat face-plants in his bowl.
When the boys are first outside Porky's and the Sheriff pulls up, a closeup of Porky's face is shown and his cigar is not in his mouth. In the next shot, Porky is in the background and is shown taking his cigar out of his mouth.

Revealing mistakes 

Peewee dials the restaurant on the pay-phone using 8 digits.
When the boys are weakening the bridge supports with a chainsaw, it's quite obvious that the chainsaw is not running - no smoke, no vibration, no sawdust.
