Lenny is against the counter in front of the donut boxes. The next angle we see Homer standing in front of the same part of the counter with the donuts. Lenny should be there.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Bart and Lisa are looking at the globe, Bart points out Argentina and 'Ran McNally.' 1) Next time you see the globe, it is showing Africa and Asia 2) Asia is shown incorrectly and 3) The equator has disappeared.

Bart the Daredevil - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The guardrail at the Springfield Gorge keeps changing between shots when Bart is about to make his big jump; in the first wide shot there is a short rail opposite the "stone ramp." Then in the Bart-POV shot from atop the ramp, the rail is much longer, and the parking lot and picnic area behind it have disappeared. And when Homer is actually jumping the gorge, the rail disappears altogether.

Old Money - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Abe's girlfriend dies in the middle of this episode, but at the end, seconds before the end credits, you can see her walk behind some other old people.

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the end of the episode when the family has reclaimed the house and are cleaning up the living room. As Homer mentions about letting the Cooders stay, Bart tells Marge to get him away from the window. She is standing right next to the couch in the lounge but the very next shot she lowers her hands and pats the couch yet is now in the family room. (Note: There was a few shots that showed there was two couches so the mistake is with Marge suddenly moving not the couch.).

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: During the concert at Nelson's club, when the amplifier makes a terrible sound and everyone covers their ears, you can see that old Carl (sitting with Lenny) is pictured white. I mean, yellow. (He's supposed to be black.)

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.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
