Suggested correction: In the first shot he is holding on using on his one free arm - as soon as his second arm is free he grabs on with that as well, this is the change of position listed.

Homer's Phobia - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: John is wearing Homer's old "Pin-pals" bowling shirt when the Simpsons first meet him, but only after we see the back of the shirt does the name "Homer" appear over John's breast-pocket; clearly there was nothing there during their entire previous conversation. And even if this is a deliberate "mistake" for comic purposes, in 7th season episode"Team Homer", the very same bowling shirt is ripped to shreds when Homer is being mauled by Mr.Burns' dogs at the very end.

Continuity mistake: In the 'Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace' segment, in Bart's dream you see a shadow of what looks like someone with four knife-fingers. Then when we see who it is, it is Willie holding a rake. But the rake has five tines, not four, so the shadow is wrong. (00:07:00)

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Question: Chief Wiggum says that Space Invaders was an addictive video game, and Groundskeeper Willie says, "Video game?" I don't understand why he is so shocked. Could someone help please?

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.
