Continuity mistake: As the workmen begin to leave site after hearing that Homer is unable to pay them, a couple of tools are dropped on the ground; however, in the following shot, facing back towards the cabinet where Homer is hiding, the tools have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the dog chases Snake into a playground, Santa's little helper starts pulling the ropes off the top of the climbing frame, in one shot the dog has two ropes left but when we see Snake the dog chews through one rope and the whole thing falls.
Continuity mistake: In this episode Principal Skinner breaks into Bart's doctors office to find out if Bart has a 'kryptonite'. Bart discovered Skinner was allergic to peanuts. On Bart's medical history form under 'known allergies' it has shrimp ticked (they later battle with shrimp and peanut on a stick). However in a previous episode (The Heartbroke Kid, season 16 episode 17) it was discovered that he was allergic to cauliflower, so that should have been on the list as well.
