Revealing Mistakes
While Eunice is playing Bingo, and has five cards infront of her with different dot patterns, all the cards have exactly the same numbers in all the same positions. When the shot pans to the old monster next to her, she also has the exact same bingo card

Revealing Mistakes
As Dracula heads up to Mavis' room at the beginning of the movie, he passes by a number of other hotel rooms. The last door he passes, the witch/maid greets him, and the head says, "Maid, clean up this room!" You can see the number plate on this door, room #174. Later, after Mavis' "trip", Dracula approaches her door, and we can see the number plate, room #174

Miscellaneous
Dracula is unable to hypnotize Johnny who wears <1mm thin plastic contact lenses but successfully hypnotizes a plane pilot through a 15 mm thick reinforced, insulated and coated compound plastic and glass cockpit window

Miscellaneous
Dracula is able to erase minds, when Quasi found out Johnny is human, Drac could have erased his mind so he wouldn't tell the other monsters later

Factual Mistake
The Air Transylvania airliner raises its landing gear much later than it normally would. Typically the gear is raised right after the plane is safely airborne

Factual Mistake
When they are playing Bingo the announcer says N27. In actual Bingo, only numbers 31 through 45 fall under the N column. Twenty seven would actually fall under the I column

Factual Mistake
When she is in the roof, Mavis can't see the sunrise because she's in the shadow. The chimney covers the sun

Factual Mistake
When Mavis and Jonathan are on the roof, watching the sun rise, the lower portion of the roof becomes lit by the sun first, leaving the upper portion in shadow. A real sunrise would light the roof from the top down

Continuity
In Quasimodo's Kitchen Johnny frees himself from the gag to speak and its around his neck. But after Drac rescues him the gag disappears

Continuity
When Dracula takes Johnny up to the hotel room with Glen's trapdoor, there's no shrunken head on the door. When he escorts Mavis out, there's now a shrunken head there. This head also has the same voice as the head on Mavis' door

Continuity
On roof of the hotel Mavis is looking at the sun with her eyes in shadow

Continuity
In the first chaos scene after Johnny enters the hotel (when he realizes the monsters are real) a fly is depicted with multiple eyes (like a fly would have). In all later depictions of the flies, they have human-like eyes, with whites and pupils, etc

Character Error
Dracula was able to freeze Johnny in mid-air while he's falling. But in Quasimodo's Kitchen he froze Quasimodo but Quasi fell after being frozen

Character Error
When playing bingo, after the number is called, every player stamps in the incorrect column except for Mavis

Character Error
Unlike many characters in the movie that were once human but later became monsters, Quasimodo (aka the Hunchback of Notre Dame) was never a monster but simply a human with a physical deformity

Character Error
Frankenstein, despite being terrified of a tiny match and unable to fly because an airplane engine might catch fire, is okay with a torch-lit castle and a sauna powered by a fire-breathing dragon
Trivia:
Everyone on the plane that Jonny is in wears dark clothing and Jonny is the only one with bright colors

Hotel Transylvania is the debut film of Genndy Tartakovsky

First animated feature for Robert Smigel. Although he did do some voice work in several TV shows and TV movies

Hotel Transylvania had been in development since 2006, when Anthony Stacchi and David Feiss were set to direct the film. In 2008, Jill Culton took over the directing position, and around 2010, Christopher Jenkins, with Todd Wilderman. In February 2011, Genndy Tartakovsky took over as the sixth director to direct his feature film debut

Hotel Transylvania was the 19th biggest grossing film of 2012

Several characters resemble the actors who provide the voices

In an early version of the story, Murray was going to have a song and dance number with his sidekicks, the Mummettes

Miley Cyrus was cast as Mavis, but she withdrew to focus on other projects, so she was replaced by Selena Gomez

At the end of the movie, at Mavis's birthday party, the label on the record on the turntable reads "Oh! who said so - Sung by - Mr. Charles Penrose", this was a real pre-WWI record

The license plate on Dracula's hearse is Romanian. This is correct, as Transylvania is now part of Romania

Among the decorations on the wall of Mavis' room is a poster that very clearly resembles her real life voice, Selena Gomez

The town in the movie with the fair is loosely based on a real town known as Sighisoara, Romania. Sighisoara is also known as the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, the real Count Dracula and is the only inhabited citadel in Europe, other than in Corsica, where all are

Dracula's wife and the infant version of Mavis are voiced by Adam Sandler's wife and daughter
