The Simpsons

Viva Ned Flanders - S10-E10

Continuity mistake: When Homer and Ned attempt to escape from their Vegas wives at the buffet. The Vegas Wives are directly in front of them, when Homer runs off he runs in an opposite direction, nowhere near them. When Homer runs out, the Vegas wives are right next to him.

Casual Person

Lard of the Dance - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: While Lisa is standing in front of the table with her friends in the cafeteria, we see that the trays appear during the first shot, then after the camera zooms in on Lisa's table, the trays disappear. Then during the third shot, Lisa calls Alex over to her table. Look at the table again: the trays have reappeared. (00:06:00)

My Sister, My Sitter - S8-E17

Continuity mistake: When Lisa arrives at Dr. Nick's, amongst the wheelbarrow line is a Professor Frink (and he's not even first in the cue). However, just a few minutes later, when Lisa ends up in the mud pit, we can see Frink amongst the crowd.

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Maggie swallow' Moe's penny, she first takes out her pacifier to eat it, but in the next shot it's in her mouth again and in the next, she's putting it back in her mouth.

Stop Or My Dog Will Shoot - S18-E20

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the dog chases Snake into a playground, Santa's little helper starts pulling the ropes off the top of the climbing frame, in one shot the dog has two ropes left but when we see Snake the dog chews through one rope and the whole thing falls.

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.
