This page is dedicated to the mistakes that were made during the animation process of Cardcaptor Sakura.
When Sakura climbs over the Wood Card's branches to get to the basement, she appears to be wearing stockings. But, when she climbs over the shelves in the basement, we see her wearing thigh-highs.
When Sakura reaches the basement stairs, a low angle shot of her dress reveals that she is wearing stockings. However, after Sakura captures the Wood and Rain Cards and goes to the kitchen, a different low angle shot shows her wearing thigh-highs.
The HAMHAM sign says, "Well Come" instead of "Welcome."
Did you know that the flowers in Sakura's hair are NOT the same color as the one on her chest? It's difficult to tell, but the ones in her hair are actually light blue, and the one on her dress is white! The animators do a great job of remembering this EXCEPT for this one sequence in Twin Bells!! If you look at the picture on the right, you will see that the flowers in Sakura's hair are white when she is looking for the Jump Card!
After Sakura summons the Fly Card, we get a close-up of her flying on the Clow Wand. During this close-up, her sleeve is beige. However, when the camera zooms out, her sleeve is mistakenly the same color as her dress!
Before Sakura gets lured off of the cliff by the Illusion Card, we see Yukito eating something and holding a grocery bag. Then, when he sees Sakura descending from the sky, he throws them on the ground. However, when he runs over to catch Sakura, they are nowhere to be seen!
Before Kero-chan turns out the light to go to bed, the part of Sakura's pajamas where her skin is supposed to show through is mistakenly painted the same color as her pajamas! But, after he turns the lights out and gets in bed, her skin is magically showing through!
When Sakura and Tomoyo are exploring the Culture Festival at Touya's school, Tomoyo videotapes Sakura and her ribbon is pink. However, after Sakura has a flashback about how she acquired her ticket, Tomoyo's ribbon changes color and matches her dress.
If you look very closely in the second picture, you'll see that the rope near Chiharu's right hand is the color of her skin instead of brown when she's pulling it!
After the Sleep Card has put everyone in the Resource Room to sleep, it flies out the door and goes down the hallway. When Sakura runs after it, the door is still open. However, less than a minute later on her way back down the hallway, it appears that someone has shut the door!
After getting the last stamp, Sakura and Yukito see Tomoyo, and then head to Penguin Park to find the plaque. Before they arrive there, the pompoms on her shorts can be seen. But, after they arrive, the pompoms are gone!
While Syaoran is training in the living room of his apartment, a fireplace is shown with two vases and a box placed upon its mantle. After this is shown, we are redirected to Meilin who is in the kitchen baking a cake. While she is in the kitchen upset over another cake failure, the phone rings, and she rushes in the living room to pick it up. Somehow the phone is placed where the box used to be, and it is sitting next to a notepad that has also magically appeared!
I noticed this mistake when I was recording information for the Touya's Jobs page. In this scene, Sakura is wearing her red hair ties, as she usually does, but for some reason, they aren't always red. Notice how when the mascot hands Sakura a balloon, her hair ties are red; however, after Touya reveals himself, Sakura's hair ties are the same color as her hair! It is only a subtle change, and this is why the animators probably didn't catch it.
As Sakura takes off, the eye of the bird is pink as it is supposed to be. But, when she is consulting with Kero-chan in the sky, the eye is white like the wings of the staff.
After Syaoran fights Yue, he is put back on the ground with Sakura and the others. At this time, the trim in the center of his hat is green instead of orange as it should be. This is a pan cel, and the trim is green during the entire pan! And, it's a close-up!! How did the animators miss this!?
Early one morning, Touya and Yukito are playing a soccer match at Seijou High. During the match, the soccer jerseys read "Seijyo." But, after Touya scores a goal and Yukito compliments him, the jersey now reads "Seijo" without the letter "y."
Before Sakura goes to transform the Big Card, she looks at it while holding her Star Wand. At this time, the wings on the Star Wand are the size that they usually are. But, when the camera zooms out, the wings are longer than they should be! (They are mistakenly the length that they become when Sakura is transforming a card.)
I almost feel like this blooper is a two-in-one... In the image on the left, Sakura's wand has wings while she is talking to Kero-chan. (They look a little too far down, but they are there.) Then, just before Kero turns into Cerberus/the Queen of Hearts, the Star Wand has no wings at all!
Even though these are clearly bloopers, Sakura's Star Wand is all sorts of messed up throughout this episode! Click here to see more screenshots.
When Kero becomes jealous that Sakura hasn't asked Yue to help with the chores, he decides to throw a bag of flour at him. Unfortunately for Kero, the bag opens as it is being thrown, and the flour gets all over himself instead. The only areas that do not get covered in flour are his red gemstones, but in the next scene, this does not hold up. As you can see in the second picture, while Kero leans against the bathroom wall, the gemstone on his earpiece has somehow become covered in flour. Additionally, the lines around his mouth are somehow no longer covered in flour.
After Sakura summons her Star Wand, she looks at the Bubbles Card and consults with Kero before she changes it. Then, when she starts to say her transformation chant, her Star Wand has suddenly lost its wings!
Just like in the bathroom scene, Sakura's Star Wand loses its wings once again! This time the mistake occurs after she uses the Shield Card so that Kero and Yue can change back into their temporary forms. Once Yue has successfully transformed into Yukito, Sakura hides her wingless Star Wand behind her back.
Before Sakura attempts to fix Cerberus's and Yue's problem, it looks like she is holding two Clow Cards! However, she only transforms one card— The Shield Card.
When the cast and crew of Nakuru's movie come inside the house, the first thing that is shown is the fireplace with a raging fire inside of it. Within moments, however, the camera pans from the right side of the room to the left side of the room, and there is no longer a fire in the fireplace!

In the first picture, the left wing on Sakura's Clow Wand is pink while the right wing is white. It is possible that the wing was intentionally colored this way given the art style of the opening animation..., but... then why is it that BOTH of the Clow Wand's wings are pink when fully extended...!? Is this a blooper? I'll let you be the judge!
