Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: There are two problems with Lisa's Indian burns. When we first see them, she has 4 burns. Then, while she is showing them to the bullies, there are 3, then 4 again. Then, in the very next scene when she is walking with Nelson in the schoolyard, they are gone altogether.

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: When Marge is racing the school bus, as the bus jumps out of the ditch you can see that the bottom of the bus is painted to resemble a skateboard. When the bus lands from this jump, however, the bottom of the bus is an even grey colour.

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is watching tapes of Francine's bullying, there is a scene where they are at the pool. Francine is wearing nose clips in this scene. But when Lisa freeze-frames and leans in to closer inspect the shot, Francine's face is shown on the screen without nose clips. They appear again when Lisa exclaims "Of course. The nose clips."

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Audio problem: In the scene where Lisa is presenting her bully repellant at the 'Big Science Thing', when she first walks onstage there are murmurs of disapproval among the scientists, in which you can hear one of them saying, "Let's not listen". But after Lisa sprays the repellant on herself and stops Francine in her tracks, the scientists start murmuring in astonishment. However, if you listen closely, you'll hear the same recording of someone saying, "Let's not listen".

Simpson Safari - S12-E17

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, when the scientist is trying to give everybody diamonds, a shot cuts to just Marge and Lisa, but out of nowhere Maggie appears. (00:19:30)

Simpson Safari - S12-E17

Continuity mistake: When they are riding the boat type raft, the stripes change from red on the left and black on the right, to the other way around and then back again.

Simpson Safari - S12-E17

Continuity mistake: When Bart is eating the grubs, his tongue appears to be green, in all other shots it's back to red.

Simpson Safari - S12-E17

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are on the raft going down the river in Africa they come to a fork and have a choice of going to the left, towards a sunny and nicer area or to the right where it is rainy and gloomy. As Homer tries to steer the raft to the left as he pulls his left arm out of the water and it is covered in leeches but in the next shot of him when we see the arm again the leeches are gone. No way to remove leeches that fast.

Audio problem: When Lisa says "Oh no, somebody took my bike", she is mouthing something else.

Trilogy of Error - S12-E18

Continuity mistake: During Lisa's and Bart's segment, time seems to run really quickly. When Lisa leaves West Springfield Elementary it is 11:00 and when she gets to Moe's it is noon, then a few minutes later it is 2:50. When Bart and Milhouse find Fat Tony it is noon, then when Bart gets hit by the truck, it is almost 3:00.

I'm Goin' to Praiseland - S12-E19

Continuity mistake: When Flanders' girlfriend pulls up at the end, from one angle she's wearing a pink shirt with what looks like a white vest over top. But from another angle her shirt is all white.

I'm Goin' to Praiseland - S12-E19

Revealing mistake: In one of the scenes (I think it is when they first discover the alleged 'miracle') you can see people in the background walking out of the park. But they are not walking out of the park at all, they are walking into the wall.

I'm Goin' to Praiseland - S12-E19

Continuity mistake: When we first see the "Whack-a-Satan" game at Praiseland, there are three rows of holes the little devil dolls emerge from. After Nelson turns towards Flanders, the game is seen behind him, now with only two rows of holes.

Continuity mistake: Helen Lovejoy suddenly has lipstick on when she gives Homer the ice cream. She doesn't have lipstick on in previous shots.
