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.

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

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.

Hamster

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Audio problem: When Lisa rides past on her Pony, Ralph is sitting on the fence with another boy who says, 'She really tamed that horse', Ralph says, 'Yes but who can tame her?'. However he speaks with a deeper voice as opposed to his higher squeaky voice, and sounds exactly like Nelson Muntz.

The Bonfire Of The Manatees - S17-E1

Factual error: (Episode 17-1) Alec Baldwin, as an expert on manatees, says that they are also called dugongs. Manatees are found in Atlantic coastal waters and in the Amazon and tributaries. The dugong is a distinct species found in the coastal waters of the Indian and southwest Pacific oceans.

Continuity mistake: Bart yanks Homer's beard off in the mall, Homer then takes Bart into Santa's workshop. When they are inside Santa's workshop, Homer's beard is back on, despite the fact that he didn't put it back on, he let it fall to the ground when Bart pulled it off.

E-I-E-I-(Annoyed Grunt) - S11-E5

Plot hole: When the Simpsons run away from the duel, they go to Homer's childhood farmhouse. But Homer and Grandpa burned the farmhouse down in the episode "Grandpa vs. Sexual Inadequacy".

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the bit where they sit on the sofa at the start of each episode, there is one rather long one where it starts off with the Simpsons dancing in a line, then gradually evolves into a circus with elephants and men dancing around fire. Look closely in between Homer's right leg and the dancing woman on his right. There is a pile of books on the little shelf underneath the lamp and telephone, and just as the camera starts zooming out from the line of dancing, the orange book on the left noticeably changes to purple.

Moaning Lisa - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Marge drops Lisa off at school for band practice, and she walks up to the entrance steps, and then converses with two boys. Then her teacher comes up, and Marge gets annoyed. When she comes to grab Lisa back into the car, Lisa is right by the roadside, along with the two boys and the music teacher.

There's Something About Marrying - S16-E10

Audio problem: In the episode where Homer is hosting gay marriages, at one point Homer is strangling Bart and tells Lisa to hold his spot. You can hear Lisa say, "Why you little," and you can hear Bart choking, but neither of their mouths is moving.

Lummie

And Maggie Makes Three - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: Another flashback mistake: When Homer remembers finding out that Marge was pregnant with Bart, he screams, tears out his hair and runs upstairs, past a picture of Lisa in the pink hat she wears to church. This mistake re-occurs seconds later when Homer remembers finding out Marge was pregnant with Lisa. Hard to have photos of Lisa on the wall before Bart and Lisa were even born...

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: In "Time and Punishment", when Homer returns to the basement after his first time travel, there is a scorch mark on the work bench where the toaster was placed when he turned it on. The angle changes to a shot from the stairs, and the scorch mark is gone. Later in the episode, the mark is back on the bench.

Tree House of Horror XII - S13-E1

Audio problem: In 'Wiz Kids,' when Edna asks Harry Potter if he is chewing gum, he replies "No ma'am, it's brimstone," however it's clear that a different line was originally intended.

The Simpsons mistake picture

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.

Children of a Lesser Clod - S12-E20

Continuity mistake: When Ned Flanders is asking Homer wheather or not he is running a day care centre, you can see that there is a radio behind him. The aerial on it changes position in subsequent shots.

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.

Twotall

And Maggie Makes Three - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: 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.

He's My Brother

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Bart's 1st grade drawing of cat on the fridge changes across the episode, especially its ears and whiskers.

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?

Timothy Smith 2

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.

Twotall

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.

OL1V3R666

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).

On A Clear Day I Can't See My Sister - S16-E11

Continuity mistake: For "On a Clear Day, I Can't See My Sister": Throughout the episode, the backyard alternates between having a fence at the end and a forest at the end.

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.
