A Star Is Torn - S16-E18

Continuity mistake: After Lisa finishes singing her song during the audition, there are several coloring mistakes in the shot of the audience clapping. Agnes Skinner's face is ghost white, but her hands are yellow. Mayor Quimby's suit is lavender instead of violet/blue, and his hair is light brown instead of medium brown. Helen Lovejoy has blonde hair instead of grey, and is wearing a purple shirt instead of pink sweater over blue shirt, and Reverend Lovejoy has a green shirt instead of pink, and has brown hair instead of black.

Lard of the Dance - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: After Lisa wakes from her daydream, there's a boy behind her with blonde hair and a light purple shirt. After Ms. Hoover says "Then come back and finish the test", the boy's hair turns blue, and after it zooms in on Lisa's face, there's a boy with brown hair and a blue shirt behind her.

Faith Off - S11-E11

Continuity mistake: Homer was wearing a knit cap when the bucket fell on his head, but didn't have it when the bucket was removed. And since he was wearing a knit cap when the bucket fell on his head, his hair shouldn't have been ripped off when the bucket was removed.

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.
