The Simpsons

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When we see the overhead shot of Krusty crying at the Simpsons' table (just before he explains his story), we can see that Krusty has no meat on his plate. When we first see the family and Krusty after the story, there's meat on Krusty's plate. This is visible in the 'Homer's tuxedo' mistake picture.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Burns falls onto the sundial, everybody starts gathering around. Marge is there, with Maggie. She left Maggie in the car and seeing as she went off to look for Homer, Bart, Lisa and Grandpa and that she was one of the first on the scene when Mr. Burns collaspses, it would be difficult to run back and get Maggie from the car.

Suggested correction: He is in his own driveway the whole time. There's never a shot of him in a different position and certainly never in Flanders' house. You ever see the brick wall from the Simpsons' house in the last shot.

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. (00:03:40)

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.

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)

More trivia for The Simpsons

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
