The Simpsons

Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: When Homer starts the song at the end of the episode, the doors to the house behind him are open. In the next shot of the house they are closed, then they are open again in the next shot.

Suggested correction: It should be noted that a considerable amount of time has passed while Krusty is telling his story. Note the candles in the screenshot for example, they have burnt out during the story. Its reasonable to assume that there would have been a chance for them to change during this time.

Lost Our Lisa - S9-E24

Continuity mistake: Bart turns the door handle to the joke shop and a boxing glove comes out through the door and hits him. But when he opens the door there is nothing on the other side for the glove to come out of.

Bart-Mangled Banner - S15-E21

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Simpsons are sitting down to eat dinner, we see Bart pour tomato ketchup all over his potatoes. Then when the shot changes, we can see all the ketchup bottle and the corn has disappeared, and the ketchup has come off his plate. (00:04:50)

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: Up until the point at which Skinner starts throwing rings at the block in front of the Spanish lamp, the block simply doesn't exist. It only appears once he starts throwing the rings.

Mr. Plow - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Bart arrives at school in the bus, after Homer plowed the road for the bus, the sidewalk is covered in snow except for Martin's footprints. Then, when he gets out, the sidewalk has been shovelled, as there is no snow on it. Following this, Bart is pelted by snowballs, which sends him falling face-first into the sidewalk, which is once again covered in snow. (00:10:20)

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)
