Das Bus - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: When everyone discovers Milhouse has eaten the food, Milhouse then says "You wouldn't dare hurt me. You forget, I have the glasses." After this line, Nelson takes off Milhouse's glasses. At this point, a rip is visible on the left side of Nelson's shirt. Milhouse then walks backwards and Nelson is seen re-entering the shot from behind Milhouse. Only now, the rip in Nelson's shirt is now suddenly on the right side of his shirt.

Continuity mistake: When the kids wash up on the island after the bus falls into the ocean, we can see they are totally dry. But they were just in water a minute ago, so they should be soaking wet.

However when Lenny tells Burns it has already been done, Mr. Burns tells the helicopters to stop placing the dome.

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.
