Goofs

Jarod identifies three stereo-graphs (3D images that you look at and un-focus to see) as a penguin at the sphinx, a penguin on a camel, and a penguin on a Nile barge. Actually, after pausing the DVD, you note that they are actually wolves howling at the moon, a dinosaur scene, and a hot rod car. See more »
