The Simpsons

Co-Dependent's Day - S15-E15

Continuity mistake: At the Randall Curtis's Ranch we see Randall Curtis ride off on a Ton-Ton to go to the video store but in a scene only a few minutes later we see Marge and Homer drunk, tossing him around. Unless the video store is on the ranch or very close by this doesn't seem possible for someone so determined to rent movies.

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: When the Ranger stops the Simpsons' car at the start of the episode, watch his "class ring". When he puts his hands inside the car it's on the left hand. However, the flies later eat his hand and take his ring, and it's suddenly his right hand they ate and took it from.

Krusty Gets Busted - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When the store is being robbed, Homer throws his bag to the side and it lands face down near the stand of chips Homer jumps into. But when they are watching the video of this incident later, the bag is standing upright, far away from the spot it previously was at.

Show generally

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)

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.
