- Stock footage from Postman Pat and a Job Well Done, Postman Pat and the Job Swap Day, Postman Pat's Popstars and Postman Pat and the Surprise Present is used.
- In the first shot and when Pat drives along to invite P.C. Selby to the party, PAT 1 is missing its rear numberplate.
- Because stock footage from "Postman Pat and the Job Swap Day" is used, several mistakes are made:
- Julian's jacket disappears
- Julian and Meera suddenly move to the back of the class
- Charlie looks happy when Julian anounces that P.C. Selby might be leaving.
- In one shot where Arthur tells himself about his new job in Pencaster, everything is static except his moustache which is not animated properly.
- When Pat tells Alf about P.C. Selby, Jess is missing.
- What Pat arrives at the station, Ted can be seen inside the Greendale Rocket even though his meant to be back at the mill.
- At a few points during the episode, Arthur's moustache becomes bushier.
- The children cheer Lucy's song without moving their lips.
- Because stock footage from "Postman Pat and the Surprise Present" is used, Bonnie appears with the band during the song for no reason at all.
- When P.C. Selby drops Doctor Gilbertson back at the surgery, he has only one eyebrow. However during a close-up of P.C. Selby at this point in the episode, his missing eyebrow sudddenly reappears out of nowhere and then disappears again in the next shot.
- When Pat turns about to follow Arthur to the mill, his hat disapears.
- When the villiagers jump out and shot "Surprise!", some of them just skid into view with very little animation.
