Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the scene where Mumble is born, Memphis says "woah" a little bit before Mumble's foot actually comes out of the egg.

Continuity 

While Baby Mumble is with the Skuas, a small black bow can be seen on Mumble's chest. However, when Mumble falls into the crack in the ice, the bow disappears. When the birds fly away, Mumble rolls to the side and begins to cry, with his bow visible again.

Miscellaneous 

During the end credits, there is a typographical error in the music listing for "My Way". It reads, "Performed b Robin Williams".

Revealing mistakes 

When Memphis and Norma Jean find each other in the crowd (when the females are returning), one penguin in the center of the screen walks through another penguin.
When Mumble and the Amigos are outrunning the avalanche, Mumble hangs in mid-air for a few seconds, and Ramon grabs onto Mumble from behind before they fall. Looked at closely, Ramon's flipper passes through Mumble's feathers right before they nose-dive down the slope.

When the Adelies and Lovelace are involved in the killer whale attack on the frozen buoy, Mumble surfaces. When he starts speeding up, there's no wake seen behind him.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Errors in geography 

On a zoom out sequence to the globe, the Aquarium where Mumble is held is revealed to be in Miami. That Aquarium and the surrounding park do not exist however. Additionally, the aerial imagery in the movie is flipped.

Factual errors 

When Mumble is in the aquarium, there is a long zoom out until the earth is visible as a small disk in space. Stars in the background twinkle. However, stars should not twinkle when seen from space. They only twinkle when seen from earth because of variations of the atmosphere.

Plot holes 

Toward the end of the movie, the penguins start to dance while a human video tapes them. Later, the video of the penguins dancing is played in Times Square and on TVs all over, but the human didn't even have his camera out yet during the beginning part of the dance that is televised.
