  • A few mistakes are made due to stock from Postman Pat and the Job Swap Day being used:
    • Mr. Pringle says part of his announcement towards the beginning without moving his lips.
    • Alf Thompson is in the classroom for no reason at all.
    • Most of the children (excluding Charlie) look depressed about Mr. Pringle's announcement and Sarah's idea even though they are meant to be happy about them.
    • Julian has his jacket off for most of the time, but has it on when the stock footage from the aforementioned episode is not used.
  • Tom has no eyebrows when he says "Or the most exciting." and when Mrs. Pottage spots the twins' collage.
  • Pat says they that he and Jess got stuck in the woods during the events of Postman Pat's Pigeon Post, when really they were stranded by the river in the middle of the open country.
  • When Pat arrives at the church, his van's front number plate is missing.
  • Sarah says "Stupid Collage!" without moving her lips.
  • When Bill tells Sarah about his clown act with Pat, you can see a sudden end in his wrist.
  • Bill looks happy when he runs out of purple paint.
  • In a long shot of Greendale, Ted is on board the Greendale Rocket as it pulls into the station. However in a following close-up, Ajay is by himself and the mail truck suddenly disappears from the rear of the train.
  • Sarah looks happy when she moans about not starting her picture.
  • Mr. Pringle has no eyebrows, when Charlie puts out his model at Parents' Evening.
  • Sarah ripped up her collage, but it some how ends up on display and intact at the end of the episode.
