Suggested correction: The pan of the city is before the head is cut off. After the head is cut off you don't see the statue again.

Simpson Safari - S12-E17

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, when the scientist is trying to give everybody diamonds, a shot cuts to just Marge and Lisa, but out of nowhere Maggie appears. (00:19:30)

D'oh-in' in the Wind - S10-E6

Continuity mistake: When Homer is shot at the hippie farm, he ends up with a flower in his head, stem first. But he put the flower in the gun barrel stem first, as well. From a shot at that close a range and that velocity, there's no way the flower could have turned around in mid-air.

Simpson Safari - S12-E17

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are on the raft going down the river in Africa they come to a fork and have a choice of going to the left, towards a sunny and nicer area or to the right where it is rainy and gloomy. As Homer tries to steer the raft to the left as he pulls his left arm out of the water and it is covered in leeches but in the next shot of him when we see the arm again the leeches are gone. No way to remove leeches that fast.

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.
