The Simpsons

A Midsummer's Nice Dream - S22-E16

Continuity mistake: The seating arrangements during the Cheech and Chong show keep changing between shots. Smithers is first seen sitting between Patty and Luigi, then he is between Louie and Legs, and then he is between Patty and Luigi again, then finally, he is sitting next to Mr Burns. And Miss Hoover is at first two rows in front of the Simpsons, then she is a row behind them when Homer is going to the stage.

I'm Goin' to Praiseland - S12-E19

Continuity mistake: When the citizens are leaving the park in disappointment, Manjula walks past the screen and has yellow skin, light brown hair and is wearing a blue dress. In the next shot she is back to her normal skin color and is wearing her usual pink dress.

The Front - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: When Roger Meyers throws his nameplate at the writer the second time, the animation is repeated from when he threw it at him earlier. It's more obvious because his mouth doesn't match what he's saying and the background is orange instead of purple like the rest of the scene.

Bart the General - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end when Nelson's goons are holding on to Nelson, they both have brown skin. But in the next shot, one of them goes back to having yellow skin.

Black Widower - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: During the wedding, look at the man with the blue hair carrying the tray with hors d' oeuvres that Homer is eating. When Homer says "Hey wiener boy. Where do you think you're going?" the man's collar changes from white to black instantly.

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.
