The Simpsons

A Milhouse Divided - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, the family is eating in front of the T.V. When Marge is complaining about getting the food all over the floor, she drops her meatball on the floor, and it leaves a trail of sauce on the rug. In the bird's eye view of the room, the sauce has disappeared until the shot changes: then it reappears.

Bart's Comet - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: When Bart is first introduced to the Superfriends, Ham moves around the table a bit. First he is seen sitting next to the kid with dark, curly hair, and you can see a plate in between him and Bart's plate, indicating that someone else is sitting there. This someone turns out to be Lisa, who after she is introduced, switches seats with Ham, making Ham sit next to Bart.

Homer vs. Patty and Selma - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: When Homer is walking upstairs after kicking Patty and Selma out for the second time, the wall that Homer was approaching is a darker colour than it usually is, and Homer walked up the stairs slowly. But a second later he closed a door, indicating that he went into a room. Are we really to believe that he could go very quickly from the stairs to a room in a matter of seconds?

Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: During the big song near the end, there is a birds eye view of everybody outside dancing and singing, and Krusty, Chief Wiggum and Skinner are there outside with everyone. But in the very next shot, they all appear out one of the windows, singing a line to the song.

Diatribe of a Mad Housewife - S15-E10

Continuity mistake: When Marge is typing her novel on the computer, in one close-up shot of her we see there is a pencil on one side of the table and a pot of flowers on the other. Yet when the shot changes to further away we can see that the pencil has been replaced by a napki, a pot with two pencils has appeared, and the flowers have moved to this side of the table as well.

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). 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. (00:01:50)
