Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: When the remote controlled plane crashes into the roof of the burlesque house, it is seen to hit only the side of the roof, yet when Bart goes to reclaim the plane, it is nested on the top of the roof.

HOMR - S12-E9

Continuity mistake: When Homer sits down in the movie theater, all the rows are completely full, including the row behind him. When he turns around to talk to Selma, the seats directly behind him are empty. Then, when Homer turns back to the screen, the Sea Captain and Dr. Hibbert appear sitting directly behind him.

The Great Louse Detective - S14-E6

Continuity mistake: When Homer and Sideshow Bob are chasing the mechanic on stilts, the mechanic tries to get away, and his cape falls off while he is being chased. In the next shot, we see a close-up of the mechanic, and you can see his red cape is back on again. Then in the next shot, we see Homer and Bob chasing him, and his cape is off.

Moaning Lisa - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Homer says "I can't concentrate with that infernal racket", the shot goes up onto Lisa's room. From the outside, there is no window frame on the window. But from the inside, there is one going right through the middle.
