Homer Badman - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: Just after Marge's left jacket pocket bursts open at the candy convention the shot changes to a shot of Marge's face. The next shot her right pocket has suddenly burst as well and the candy in it is no where to be seen.

Itchy and Scratchy and Marge - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: In the beginning after Maggie hit Homer on the head, it shows him laying on the couch with Bart & Lisa on the left. The next shot it shows the TV, in the next shot it shows Homer on the left sitting and Bart & Lisa on the right. It's impossible for Homer to get up and switch sides with Bart And Lisa in less than 5 seconds.

Catch 'em If You Can - S15-E18

Krusty Gets Busted - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Homer reaches into the fridge to take out the tub of triple chocolate ice cream, we see it in a brown and white striped tub. When he lifts it out, it's turned into a plain pink tub and has shrunk considerably. (00:03:50)

Bart the Daredevil - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: As Milhouse walks up to the TV to turn up the volume, Lewis is nowhere to be seen in a wide shot, but as Milhouse walks back over to the couch you can see Lewis sitting on the floor. (00:02:15)

Homer Badman - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When one of the pockets of Marge's coat explodes (when Homer is stealing the rare Gummi), a huge pile of candy comes pouring out. When she bends down to pick some up, there isn't nearly as much candy there as before. There are people picking up the candy with her, but they would have to pick it up extremely fast, and they aren't.

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.
