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. (00:04:50)

Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song - S5-E19

Continuity mistake: In the air duct, the dog comes up behind Willie in a straight line and licks his feet, we saw what the duct looked like when Willie turned around. However, when the children start throwing stuff at the duct, from the outside there is a sharp bend right behind where Willie and the dog are that wasn't there in the internal shots.

'Tis the Fifteenth Season - S15-E7

Continuity mistake: When we first see the skating rink, it has Jasper, Disco Stu, Otto, Apu and Manjua, Sideshow Mel, a couple of children and two couples skating on it. In the next shot we see the Comic Store Guy split his trousers - he wasn't there before. (00:14:00)

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: There are several errors in the plant's parking lot: 1, in the overhead shot of the plant, we see Homer drive in, and there are parking barriers on the road. These disappear in the next shot. 2, As he drives in, there are at least eleven parking spaces on the right side of him. Carl takes up one spot, and in the next shot there are about 3 parking spaces left. 3, When he parks, we see several cars behind him, but in the shot before that, no cars are visible, not even parking spaces, and 4, when both Homer and Carl drive in, we see orange lines on the road, which weren't visible in any other part of the scene.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: In 'The Shinning,' Homer is chasing his family with an axe. They are hiding behind a curtain, and then they run outside, away from Homer, opening only one of the double doors. In the following overhead shot of them running through the snow, both doors are now open. (00:07:30)

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)

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.
