Much Apu About Nothing - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: When Apu awakes, he has a closed note pad, and the table looks small. In the next high-angle shot, Apu's book is open and face down, with paper on top of it and a pen beside it. The table is also bigger, with Bart sitting there with his breakfast things too.

Suggested correction: No it is simply out of shot. There are 4 hooks on the lower half of the racks, in the second shot only 3 pegs are visible and we see Bart put his hat on the end peg.

This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: In the Wiggum's house the parent's bedroom changes style several times. When it is first seen the cupboard is opposite the door (When Chief Wiggum is looking into the room after climbing the stairs). Then it is on the wall running across from the doorway later when Chief Wiggum enters the room. When the Chief puts the Police Master key on his bed post the doorway is behind the bed and the bed is opposite the cupboard. Later when Bart steals the key the bed is seen parallel to the doorway.

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.
