Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: The interior of the living room is different when Lisa kisses Homer. (00:13:40)

Yoshi

Correction: We are seeing it from a different angle than normal so it's hard to know if it's really different. Even if it is, this is not a mistake. There is time before and after for things to change.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa eats a spoon of the ice cream, there is chocolate left over. It suddenly changes to being clean. (00:06:35)

Yoshi

Correction: The spoon is out of shot while we are seeing Homer. Lisa may have licked it clean or the ice cream may have have just melted.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: Homer enters the back left door of the auditorium. He jumps to the right side when seen clapping. (00:06:00)

Yoshi

Correction: In between Homer entering and us seeing him clapping, we see Lisa on stage. Homer had plenty of time to move to the right.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa starts playing her bad performance, we can hear people clapping, but the audience doesn't do anything. (00:05:35)

Yoshi

Correction: We see the audience from behind, they could easily be clapping their hands without us seeing.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the talent show, Skinner tells the audience that all the doors are locked. Homer enters the auditorium during Lisa's performance. (00:02:05 - 00:06:10)

Yoshi

Correction: Skinner was joking, safety requirements would not allow him to lock the doors.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty leaves the Simpson house, he is suddenly wearing his coat. (00:11:15)

Yoshi

Correction: No, the scene where he is wearing his coat is completely different from when he is leaving the house. He may have gone home in between.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty ends his show at the beginning, the people surrounding him have suddenly disappeared. (00:01:00 - 00:01:45)

Yoshi

Correction: No, the shot changes from a wide look at the whole cast to one of the camera screen which has zoomed in on Krusty so he's the only one we can see.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty arrives at the Simpson house, the time on the clock in the background changes. (00:05:10 - 00:05:55)

Yoshi

Correction: That's what clocks do, even in cartoons. The changes in time make perfect sense.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In the beginning, when Krusty does his axe-throwing act on Sideshow Mel, the number of axes on the board changes from four to five. (00:00:55)

Yoshi

Correction: Look closely, it's always five both in the wide and the close up shots.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: The big green chair that Lisa sits in disappears and reappears. (00:05:10 - 00:10:30)

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: During the dinner scene, many things keep changing around, i.e. the glasses, the food, the silverware, etc. (00:06:00 - 00:10:25)

Yoshi

Correction: This is normal during dinner and there was plenty of time during Krusty's story when we couldn't see the table for things to be moved.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: The monkey doesn't have a tail. (00:05:55)

Yoshi

Correction: Not at all clear if this is true, the monkey may simply have its tail between its legs.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Bart writes the letter to Krusty, most of the objects on the table have disappeared. (00:03:30)

Yoshi

Correction: We see Bart clear a number of things from the table and then the angle changes to one where we can no longer see what's on it, so no mistake.

Duffless - S4-E16

Corrected entry: The hamster gets electrocuted mildly by a food pellet with an electric current. However, it is an electrical insulator so it couldn't have an electric current.

OL1V3R666

Correction: It's impossible to tell what the battery is connected to. Yes it's the same shape as a food pellet but hamsters will gnaw on anything including the bars of their cages, which are metal.

Flaming Moe's - S3-E10

Corrected entry: When the two pictures are shown of the tyre fire, now and 25 years ago, the clouds in the sky are the same.

OL1V3R666

Correction: Not a mistake but a joke by the show's makers. Even 25 years, long after the fire should have gone out yet it is still raging and everything including the clouds are exactly the same.

Homer the Vigilante - S5-E11

Corrected entry: Somebody with glasses and a hat drowns in a river, but later when everybody is looking for the treasure, he is there as if nothing has happened to him at all.

OL1V3R666

Correction: The man who goes in the river is driving his car and it goes under the water but we never see him drown. As soon as he goes under the water the shot shows Bart. The guy could have simply got out of the river and ran to the treasure site after that. He was in a convertible car and there was enough time from the car sinking to seeing him at the treasure site to have covered that distance.

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Corrected entry: In "Clown Without Pity", when Homer buys a Krusty doll for Bart, the guy at the shop doesn't give it to him inside a box. When Homer gives it to Bart, it is inside a box.

OL1V3R666

Correction: There may have been more than one item of this doll and the one he showed Homer was for display purposes. The fact that there was a phone number to call for problems with the doll makes it very possible this wasn't just a one off doll. Even if there hadn't been more than one, he may have packaged it up before Homer left the store.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: Both the Australian boy's father and Marge say that the call cost $900. However America and Australia have their own dollars and hence different currencies. Because of the exchange rates, surely one of the values would have been different.

OL1V3R666

Correction: At the time they are told about what they owe they are being notified the amount is $900 AUSTRALIAN dollars. Because of exchange rates changing every day, the currency difference will only be made an issue when the amount is actually bought. The Simpsons as well weren't likely going to be able to afford the expensive call so I don't think how much it would be in US dollars was going to be much of a concern.

Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie - S4-E6

Corrected entry: Before the Simpsons are in their house talking about the Itchy and Scratchy Movie, there's a line of people waiting to see it that extends past their house and down numerous streets. When it shows one of the kids talking, the window behind them shows that all the people have vanished.

Correction: There is time, while Homer is in shot, for the line to have moved forward.

Duffless - S4-E16

Corrected entry: When Homer enters Moes bar after one month without beer, two identical drunks are visible in one shot.

Correction: The identical drunks are very visible in several shots. It's defintely not a case of the same shot reused so they must be twins.

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.

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

Question: Chief Wiggum says that Space Invaders was an addictive video game, and Groundskeeper Willie says, "Video game?" I don't understand why he is so shocked. Could someone help please?

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.
