Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: When Lisa enters the taxi and we see the door being closed, the camera turns into the full view of the taxi in the next shot, and now we see that the door (the one with company logo on it) has changed its shape between shots.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: At Li'l Ludwig's Music School, when Lisa plays her sax she has a rope around her neck, attached to the sax. Then when Lisa yells "You're wrong. You're wrong." The rope has vanished, but is around her neck in the following closeup. (00:05:05)

I'm Goin' to Praiseland - S12-E19

Continuity mistake: When we first see the "Whack-a-Satan" game at Praiseland, there are three rows of holes the little devil dolls emerge from. After Nelson turns towards Flanders, the game is seen behind him, now with only two rows of holes.

Twotall

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Miss Hoover asks Lisa what the ninteenth-century figure nicknamed 'Old Hickory' is, there is no text on the covers of the book she's holding. In the next two shots, however, 'Teacher's Edition' can be seen on The Front cover and the spine of the book. (00:17:00)

Yoshi

Today, I am a Klown - S15-E6

Continuity mistake: When we first see the medicine cabinet in the Simpson's bathroom the hinges are on the left. When Homer pokes it with the wire it opens as if the hinges are on the other side. The last time we see it, when Lisa rescues Maggie, the door is missing altogether. (00:01:25)

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.
