The Simpsons Halloween Special: Tree House of Horror - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After the aliens have dropped off the Simpsons in their back yard, Marge is seen wearing her usual red pearls. Except in the final shot of the family. Then her pearls are white. This is not due to the alien light source altering the colors in the segment, because Marge's pearls have been a dark color through the whole episode, even inside the alien spaceship.


Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: When the children are sleeping in the canteen at school, Bart is resting his head on a red sweater. In the close up of him and Lisa, the sweater has now turned dark green. It's not because of the dark that we see it like that because there is a bit of light at the beginning of the next shot and we see the jumper to be dark green.

Also the door to the police station changes from brown to blue to clear glass and back to blue during the scene.
