The Simpsons

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty does his performance in front of Rabbis, when Krusty's father starts talking to another Rabbi, you can see a third Rabbi at another table in the background. In the next two shots this rabbi has vanished. (00:09:20)

Yoshi

Correction: Between the two shots there is a shot of Krusty. In this shot there is enough time for the rabbi to get up.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Homer buys the severed hand, the person selling it says "I strongly advise you not to purchase this item". Then why is he even selling it in the first place if he'd advise people not to buy it?

OL1V3R666

Correction: He may only want certain people (such as those he does not like) to buy it. He's advising Homer not to buy it as he's done no wrong in the seller's books.

Two Dozen and One Greyhounds - S6-E20

Corrected entry: In the show where Santa's Little Helper finds his mate and they have puppies, Monty Burns is out with Waylon Smithers. The two are on the street and see the puppies in a box. He starts stealing the puppies but SURELY the people around him (at least ten) would see that he was stealing the puppies.

Correction: That's the joke. The Simpsons are worried Mr Burns is going to resort to some complicated, evil plan to take their puppies, but he very simply and very obviously just puts them in a bag.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa says "I'll never forget you," to the horse, her mouth doesn't move. (00:20:45)

Yoshi

Correction: We only see the back of Lisa's head so it's impossible to know if her mouth moves or not.

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.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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)

Yoshi

Correction: It was moved to give Krusty space for his unicycle act and then put back.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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.

tw_stuart

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.

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)
