The Simpsons mistake picture

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage.

The Simpsons Christmas Special: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: After Homer brings Santa's Little Helper home, Homer and Marge hug, and if you look behind them, the background is upside down. There is a picture hanging upside down, and there is a lamp which seems to be hanging from the ceiling. Then in the next shot, the background is normal.

The Simpsons Christmas Special: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Homer walks out Circus of Values with his purchases, he bumps into Flanders, and all the presents scatter everywhere. Watch out for a red present with a green bow that goes flying near the left hand side of the screen. As soon as it hits the ground it turns into a pink box with a white bow wrapped around it, with no shot changes.

Continuity mistake: Just before the kitchen mistake, Marge walks through the doorway from a room with a piano, beside a bare wall, and on the piano are two frames and music sheets. But when Marge turns the jar upside down, there is a large picture on the wall beside the piano, and the music sheets and frames have disappeared from the piano.

The Simpsons Christmas Special: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Marge is speaking on the phone to her sisters, her sisters say something that sounds like they said that Homer is ugly. Marge then puts down the phone wire that she was curling round her finger. It is easier to see this when you are using DVD, because then you can go into slow-motion, but you can temporarily see that the phone wire disappears when Marge puts it down. It is at the very end of an early scene, because as soon as this happens it changes to another scene.
