Homer and Apu - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot of Apu serving his customers, you can see Martin wearing a purple shirt. However, later when all the customers are grumbling about the price, you can see Martin walk away wearing a white shirt.

The Fat and the Furriest - S15-E5

Continuity mistake: When Homer realises that the bear was only agressive because of the electrical tag, they share a bear hug. The back of Homer's shirt is torn to tatters, and his back is bleeding. Immediately thereafter, the back of Homer's shirt is completely intact.

Treehouse Of Horror XVI - S17-E4

Continuity mistake: At the end of "B.I.: Bartificial Intelligence," Homer climbs onto the ceiling and turns his head in a parody of "The Exorcist." He then lets go and lands on the bed. The only problem is that his body landing doesn't match the position it would from what we see on the ceiling. If he dropped down his face should be face down, body facing up and his head would be closer to the end of the bed. When he lands, his head is near the pillows, his body facing down and his head facing up.

Homer's Triple Bypass - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When Homer is eating the bacon and what looks like scrambled eggs after claiming Marge's oatmeal had a bug on it, the close up of the bacon shows that it is pink/purple and the eggs are yellow but the in the following shot, when Bart says, "Dad, there's a bug on that." the bacon and the eggs switch colours.

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: When we first see union flag on fire, the flames are already consuming over the half of its upper edge. Then when we see it reflected in Hugh's eyes, no more than a half of the edge is burning.

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Bart comes back into the classroom after the wolf attack, Ms Krabappel is writing on the black board and there is quite a bit of writing up there. After we see Bart the shot goes back to Ms Krabappel and all the writing has gone.

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: When Homer goes to catch Maggie (after flying out of the car) he jumps over two cars in front of him and then falls over the second one and there is no sign of any cars in front of him. However in the shot before he climbs over the cars the aerial shot of Maggie flying in the air, all the cars on the bridge are bumper to bumper with no spaces in between them.

New Kid on the Block - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: You may have to look carefully for this mistake. When Marge picks up the 'Das Butt' video, you can see the cover. In the next shot, you can see Marge holding it so you can't see the cover. But when she hands it over to Ruth, she twists the video round and you can see that nothing is visible. You may have to see it a couple of times.

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.
