20. Rapunzel’s hair doesn’t actually reach the ground (Tangled)

Everyone knows how Rapunzel gets down from her tower – she lowers her hair. But a clever Tumblr user – TheNamelessDoll – pointed out something in 2015. Rapunzel makes a pulley system with her hair to escape the tower – but it shouldn’t work! After all, the Tangled writers once stated that Rapunzel’s hair is 70 feet long. Therefore, “Rapunzel would need double the amount of the hair that she has, which would mean 140 feet of hair!” TheNamelessDoll wrote. And that’s clearly not the case.

And Andy’s mother also mentions at one point that he’s “an old family toy.” In that case, you’d think Woody would remember the other family members that he’s been passed around, especially if one of them was Andy’s dad. Yet they never come up!
