Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Video 1999) Poster

Goofs

Character error 

During the Jacob & Sons number when each of the brothers introduce themselves, Levi says his name and accidentally bumps into the Narrator who is clearly caught off guard.

Continuity 

In the first two scenes, when the kids are in the school gym, the positions of the children change from shot to shot. Look at first two on the aisle in the first row, stage right: alternates between an older and a younger boy, and a boy and a girl about the same age.
When the narrator is eating the drumstick, it flips around between shots.
At the very end of "The Song of the King" Joseph is seen at the top of the steps twice with his hand at his chin and in the next shot with both hands at his side, and again later with his hand at his chin.
Near the end of the 'Potiphar' song, Potiphar's wife puts her cigarette into her mouth, then in the next shot, she is seen putting the cigarette into her mouth again.
In Joseph's Coat, the Narrator's coat has been taken off when she is standing by the camel but in the next shot the coat is on without her putting it back on.
When singing "Any Dream will Do" (reprise), during the lines "Give me my colored coat, etc" Joseph comes forward holding the coat in front of him. Two children dressed in red are standing next to Jacob and the Narrator. They are now behind Joseph. Just when the song ends, the cast crowd around him and then we see and overhead shot of a star. Joseph is now at the back with the two children, Jacob and Narrator in front of him.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

During 'The Song of the King' Joseph says "I got the bit about the corn, but I'm not to sure about the cows. So if you could just give it to me one more time, Mr Pharaoh man." Pharaoh then proceeds to sing the verse about the corn again, and not the cows. This is in fact not an error. Pharaoh, an impatient man repeats the last line while Joseph checks for the correct answer in the Bible (held by the Narrator). The same is true for the stage productions.
