The Simpsons

Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: After Marge is looking at the matchbox from the Maison Derriere it just disappears when she sits on the sofa.

The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons - S9-E7

Audio problem: When Homer is running for the food, after racing in the wheelchair with Jasper, he says 'Eat my dust' but his lips don't move for the 'my dust' part.

Homer's Odyssey - S1-E3

Audio problem: Just after Mr Smithers says "...so that we have the energy to from your favourite video game to yummy cotton candy machines", all the children start clapping but the sound of clapping starts BEFORE they start clapping.

Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: When all the people who are plotting to murder Homer are talking about the reviews Homer had given them, the Japanise man says, "so why did you put yours in the window?" and you see the review. At the end of that scene, when they are all laughing, you see the building they are in, and it has nothing in the window.

Dead Putting Society - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When the Flanders and Simpsons first meet at the golf course, Flanders is wearing his usual long-sleeved green sweater over his shirt. After Homer says to him, "The fruit of my loins can beat the fruit of your loins any day of the week", the color of Flanders' sleeves are missing, making it look as if he's wearing a sleeveless pullover.

New Kids on the Blecch - S12-E14

Continuity mistake: When Homer is pinching Lisa with the "jealousy bug", the sign behind him changes from a gift store to an antique store.

And Maggie Makes Three - S6-E13

Plot hole: Bart comments on Homer's extreme reaction when he realised Marge was pregnant with Maggie. In the next flashbacks, when Homer reacts in the same way to hearing about Bart and Lisa, they are shown in the house at Evergreen Terrace both times. In Series 4, in the episode Lisa's First Word, they show that the Simpsons did not move to Evergreen Terrace until just before Lisa was born. Other episodes have also shown that Homer was with Marge at Doctor Hibbert's when she found out about her other pregnancies.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the old main title sequence, when Homer gets out of his car, the door inside the garage is red, but when he is screaming and running towards it, it's now brown.

Whacking Day - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: Millhouse is in the classroom at the beginning when Principal Skinner says that superintendent Chalmers is coming for a surprise inspection, but when they show Nelson he is getting crud put down his shirt. How could he be at two places at once?

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

Continuity mistake: The right handle plate on Homer's gun is fastened with two screws throughout the entire episode. But in the scene where he promises Marge to get rid of the gun and they hug in the kitchen, the gun is seen lying on the table with only one screw in the handle.

HOMR - S12-E9

Continuity mistake: When Homer sits down in the movie theater, all the rows are completely full, including the row behind him. When he turns around to talk to Selma, the seats directly behind him are empty. Then, when Homer turns back to the screen, the Sea Captain and Dr. Hibbert appear sitting directly behind him.

Bart's Inner Child - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: When everybody is in a big fight at the Do What You Feel Festival, watch out for a man in an orange shirt with black hair. His left eye keeps disappearing for one frame.

Radio Bart - S3-E13

Audio problem: Just after Krusty kicks Sideshow Mel into the big birthday cake on his show, he says "Hey kids" but his mouth doesn't move right.

Show generally

Factual error: During the theme, the Simpsons' mailbox flag is on the wrong side of the mailbox. (Flags are always on a mailbox's right side, when viewed from the front. The one at the Simpson home is on the left side of their mailbox.).

Itchy & Scratchyland - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: Homer's two hairs over his head are dishevelled when the family arrive at Itchy and Scratchy land due to whatever has happened on the detour - however, it suddenly changes to being like he normally has it in the last frame that shows the family in the car, before the car park is shown.

The Parent Rap - S13-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Judge is yelling at Marge and Homer after they have cut the rope, Marge is wearing lip gloss, and between two shots, it disappears.

Grandpa vs. Sexual Inadequacy - S6-E10

Lisa's Rival - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: The position of Ralph's Star Wars action figures changes the two times they show his diorama.
