These aren't entirely bloopers. Some are just interesting facts.

Many thanks go to the forumers at AvonleaMB for answering my questions and helping me find bloopers and interesting details.

The Journey Begins
The long shots from when Sara first sees her father (in the meeting with the lawyer) are actually showing Sarah Polley's double.
While Alec is taking Nanny, Sara, and Andrew to King Farm, Felix can be seen sitting in the buggy, but when they arrive at King Farm, Felix is there to greet them. (Thanks Liz)

The Story Girl Earns Her Name
Why would Ira Bigins take his buggy to the Lawson's General Store when he lives across the street?
In the school (the first time) we see the backs of the students. Note: The order and Jane Spry's clothes. The view shifts to Felix who leans over and whispers. Jane Spry leans into the aisle. Note: Jane's dress now is green (with white pinafore) and a boy is sitting behind her instead of Felicity. When they exit school (the same day) Jane has a white dress and pinafore on as she did when we saw the backs of the students.
When Sara chases Jasper and is by the barn, the back view of Sara her bow is high, when we see her from the front, her bow is much lower.
We see Olivia, Sara, and Felix walking into town, yet we only see Olivia and Sara at Lawson's.
If Clemmie is sick, why is she at the pond when Felix and another boy push Sally into the pond?

The Quarantine at Alexander Abraham's

COMMENT Anne's Theme (from Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel) is played throughout the episode.
At the end of the episode we see Duncan driving across the bridge, the people at the church can see him, and Duncan pulls up to the church; however, the bridge is nowhere near the church.

Old Lady Lloyd (aka Song in the Night)
After Sara falls and injures her knee, she twists around to look at her knee, the screen shifts to show her knee, shows it for less than a second and Miss Lloyd thrusts the fire poker under Sara who is now lying flat.
When traveling to the Lloyd mansion, there is a scene in which you can see the car in the background. The buggy is going left to the right of the screen, while the car is going right to left. COMMENT There is also a town in the background where the car is.
Why is Felix hanging around Rose Cottage?

Aunt Abigail's Beau
How did Sara know Malcolm swung Abigail around? The curtain was closed!
Check out Malcolm's mustache. The left side is thicker than the right side and the gap between them changes. It's most noticeable at church.
When Malcolm drops off the bed at King Farm, there isn't a mattress in it, yet we see Alec lying on it with a blue? Mattress in it.
For one who washes her floor so frequently, the floor is very dirty.
The coach leaves without Malcolm retrieving his luggage.

Malcolm and the Baby
When Felicity is feeding the baby in the barn, the level of the milk never changes, indicating that she isn't really holding a live baby.

Why was Peter never in school before?

Blackie is referred as a she several times in this episode, but in Felix and BlackieBlackie is referred to as a he. (Thanks Kindred)

Why are there clothes on the line in winter?

The school is closer to King Farm then Rose Cottage. Why would Hetty and Felix stop at Rose Cottage?
When Alec is talking to Felix (in Felix's room) before the competition, Felix is straightening his jacket, gets it straightened. Then the view shifts to show the front of Felix and we see Felix straighten it again.
If those were the schools best spellers, I'd hate to see what the other students are like!

Nothing Endures But Change
When Blair swings Sara around (outside) what is that yellow blob behind him? mysteriously appears.
After Hetty closes the door in Jasper's face, Jasper turns his face to the right and we see that snow has landed on the camera.
Right before we see Hetty in Sara's room, we see someone chopping wood and it's not snowing. When Peter comes inside, it's snowing heavily, but when Blair comes to Rose Cottage it's hardly snowing.
Was Alec supposed to knock the chair over?

Sara's Homecoming

The train scene is from Lantern Hill.

Alec says that he tore a ligament in his shoulder he doesn't seem to mind holding Cecily.

Aunt Hetty's Ordeal

They show Gus 'lighting' his pipe in the school and he sticks it in his pocket. Wouldn't the pipe be hot and burn Gus's shirt? {This happens a few times}

In one of the classroom scenes, it shoes Felicity glancing at Gus. When the view changes, Felicity's clothes have changed. (Thanks rtafan2812)

You can easily see that Gus has a button missing and only has three buttons. Gus says that that is his only pair of clothes, but when he plays his violin at the end, his shirt has all of the buttons!

Gus is clearly not wearing shoes the first day, but when he runs off, you can see that he has shoes on.

Felix acted like he just collected the eggs {near the end}, but he really has just gotten out there.

I thought Felix joined the navy? Then why is he a foot soldier? ANSWER: Some think that due to cost of filming they changed him to the Army. Another possibility is that the Naval “tour of duty” lasted two years. Felix joined the Navy in 1912 and WW1 started in 1914. (Thanks Shelly)
