The Simpsons

Stark Raving Dad - S3-E1

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the episode, Bart is talking about being 10 years old even though his 10th birthday is in the episode "Radio Bart" later in the season.

sam145

Correction: Bart has been 10 since the first episode. Since the Simpsons don't age, every birthday of Bart's is his 10th birthday. Homer is the only one that seems to age.

The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson - S9-E1

Corrected entry: The Simpsons don't only have one car. Why doesn't Homer drive the red station wagon that appears in almost every episode, instead of using a scooter?

Nikolai

Correction: This is a question, not a mistake. Perhaps Marge was using it or it could have been in the shop. Or maybe Homer was simply too stupid to realize another car was available to him.

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

Corrected entry: When Smithers realises that he shot Jasper, instead of Mr. Burns, he mentions that he left the meeting early in order to watch Pardon My Zinger. However, in the previous episode, you see him walk out of the meeting with everyone else, very slowly. (00:06:25)

Correction: True, however, everyone stopped walking after exiting the meeting and Smithers continued to walk, so he did leave before anyone else did. He said he left the meeting early probably because he was delirious and couldn't remember it correctly.

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

Corrected entry: Burns' sunblocker was meant to always block out the sun above Springfield. Yet when the Townspeople go to rip the sunblocker down, it is perfect daylight. (00:03:30)

Correction: They weren't actually in Springfield when they ripped it down. The Sunblocker was obviously out of town as shown where the scene where they go to rip it down starts.

Homer Loves Flanders - S5-E16

Corrected entry: When the bus goes past Ned Flanders while he is performing a drink-driving test with Chief Wiggum, you can see heads floating in mid-air.

Correction: I've just checked this scene, and none of the heads appear to be floating. You can't see below a lot of them, but they're not floating.

This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

Corrected entry: In the Knowledgeium, when Professor Frink says 'No more pictures,' his lips don't move.

Correction: I'm not sure what you're seeing, but his lips do move when he says this.

Kill the Alligator and Run - S11-E19

Corrected entry: Homer runs outside to see the college students packing. He asks a couple why they are leaving. The couple is putting a statue of a head on their car. The statue blinks the same time the male college student does.

Correction: That's not a statue head, that's a person. In the zoom out right before Homer starts talking to them, you can see his torso in the car windshield wearing a green shirt and he has his arm on top of the car. When Homer starts talking to the couple, the man looks like a disembodied head on top of the car.

Bart Gets Famous - S5-E12

Corrected entry: When Bart says 'I'm doing the Conan O'Brien show', the top of his head is slightly transparent - you can see the lining of the kitchen cupboards through it.

Correction: I've just seen this part, and Bart's head absolutely does not look transparent.

Margical History Tour - S15-E11

Corrected entry: Salieri wasn't Mozart's brother - let alone his sister. Wouldn't Martin have been better as the jealous rival? (00:14:25)

jle

Correction: Yes. but Marge is telling the story and afterwards Lisa confronts her about the inaccuracies of her story.

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

Corrected entry: During all of the flashbacks, Homer is in stage 1 hair loss (birth of Bart), but shouldn't he have the amount of hair he had after finding out about Lisa's birth? If the flashbacks did occur 8 years ago, shouldn't Marge be pregnant and Homer be bald?

Correction: Marge has already had Lisa by the time of the flashbacks - Lisa as a baby is seen in one of them.

In Marge We Trust - S8-E22

Corrected entry: When Rev Lovejoy talks to Marge about how Flanders kept bothering him, like visiting the church and phoning him, in one of the scenes Lovejoy and his wife are sitting in a cafe in France, and Flanders manages to phone him. Thing is, how did Flanders know where they were, or even know they were at that cafe?

Heather Benton Premium member

Correction: That is the joke. Flanders is so persistant in his confessions and questions that he'll find Lovejoy no matter what.

Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Corrected entry: In the scene where Belle (the owner of the burlesque house) tells Homer about Bart breaking a valuable statue, Belle calls it a gargoyle, however this is wrong. A gargoyle has water shooting out of its mouth, the statue Belle was talking about, is called a grotesque.

MGG fan xx

Correction: While technically correct, the term 'grotesque' is now practically unknown to the general public, who refer to all such statues as gargoyles. Only an expert in the field would realistically refer to them as a grotesque and Belle, as the owner of a burlesque house, is unlikely to qualify for that status.

MoneyBART - S22-E3

Corrected entry: Mike Scioscia's (the guest star) hat changes from red filled at the start of the roller coaster ride and ends up being white at the end.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: It does change, but if that scene is watched carefully, the force of the wind blowing by the roller coaster blows the red cap off to reveal the white one underneath.

Worst Episode Ever - S12-E11

Corrected entry: Nelson Mutz is one of the person banned for life by the comic book seller. If so, why he is seen later during Tom Savini's presentation?

Dr Wilson

Correction: He could have either snuck in or bribed/tricked the comic book guy.

CBG spots people in disguise and is stubborn in regards to people being banned.

Today, I am a Klown - S15-E6

Corrected entry: Why would Homer and Marge wait for the bathroom if they have one in their bedroom?

Dr Wilson

Correction: It could have been out of order.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: When Homer check the bills, he finds out Bart called Burkina Faso. He was trying to call countries in the Southern Hempisphere, when Burkina Faso is actually in the Northern Hemisphere.

Correction: Character mistake by Bart.

Colonel Homer - S3-E20

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the episode, the family goes to the Googolplex theater but when the show cuts to a shot of the movie screen when Bart and Lisa are watching Space Mutants, the decor around the screen indicates that they are at the Aztec theater. (00:03:20)

Correction: Seeing how Springfield used the same plans for Springfield Elementary and North Springfield Elementary it should be no surprise that two theaters in Springfield have the same decor.

But different episodes have shown them to have different decor.

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

Corrected entry: At the end of this episode everyone is in Mr. Burns' hospital room wondering how Maggie could shoot him. In some shots Maggie has a red bow and in others it is blue.

Correction: Actually, throughout the whole scene it is blue.

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

Corrected entry: When Smithers is walking into the church, he is wearing a long coat. But in the next shot when you see him inside the confession booth, he is now wearing a waist length green jacket.

Correction: We see Smithers outside the church wearing the long trench coat, then it cuts to him in the confession booth wearing a blazer. Between those two shots, there is more than enough time for him to take off his trench coat, and he's wearing the blazer underneath. There is no mistake.

Gone Maggie Gone - S20-E13

Corrected entry: When Lisa walks into the church thinking she's the gem, Mother Teresa comes and changes the word puzzle from "Regally, The Rock Gem Is Lisa" to "It's Really Maggie, Sherlock" You can see that the "s" from "Is" in the first puzzle is not used at all in the second puzzle, and the "S, H and E" from "Sherlock" was taken from the "H and E" in "The" from the first puzzle, which means they used two "s" without even using the "s" from "Is" in the first puzzle. (00:18:35)

Elias

Correction: The S from "Is" becomes the S in "It's" the first word in the 2nd puzzle. There's 2 S's in both the puzzles if you actually read it.

Brawl in the Family - S13-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer's Vegas wife shows him the video in front of Marge, it shows Homer kissing Ned. This didn't happen when she showed it in the Vegas episode.

Trivia: Maggie scans as $847.63 in the supermarket at the beginning (not NRA4EVER, as Troy Maclure asserts in 3F31 "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular), the price it costs to feed and care for the average American baby every month.

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.
