When Wallace and Gromit are trapped by Victor's dead end tree in the road, Victor throws the hatchet into the tree next to Wallace. Wallce, nor his clothes, are touching it. Yet when Wallace tries to run off, we see his suspenders caught in the hatchet. The very next scene, Wallace is next to the tree again, and again his clothes are still not caught under the hatchet.

When Gromit presses the button to deploy the lasso, there is a hood ornament on the car, which rotates 90 degrees as the hood opens. But a moment later when the lasso rises (and for the remainder of the chase) the hood ornament is gone. When the car returns to Wallace's house and shakes off the mud, the ornament is back again.

Factual errors 

Just before the title of the film appears we see the full moon above the rooftops. The moon is on the left of the scene, but the shadows of the chimney stacks are also to the left. They should be to the right.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The prices in the fairground scene at the Giant Vegetable Contest are in the old pounds, shillings and pence, showing that this film is set before this form of currency was abolished on 15 February 1971 (indeed, Gromit's calendar in one scene shows that 1 September is a Thursday, so the latest this film could be set is 1966). Yet Pesto's technology uses LEDs, which didn't become available until the mid-70s, and diode lasers, which weren't available to the general public until about 2000. However, Wallace has been shown to be a genius inventor, it's quite possible he invented all of these things himself, long before the items became available to the public.

Factual errors 

When Victor Quartermaine does the "Bag a Rabbit game" at the fair and he fires three shots in quick succession, he is using a bolt-action rifle. This is not possible as there would be a noticeable pause between each shot caused by working the bolt.

Factual errors 

When Quartermaine fires the musket, the golden carrot spins; muskets have a smooth-bore barrel, meaning its projectile would not spin.

As Gromit follows the Were-Rabbit footprints towards Wallace's bedroom, tears in the plasticine become visible on the top of his front right leg.
