Corrected entry: Lisa is singing "One (Is the Loneliest Number)" and looks up the composer to find out that he "died of a heart attack suffered on Valentine's Day." Although Harry Nilsson DID suffer a massive heart attack on 14 Feb 1993, he didn't die of heart disease until 15 Jan 1994.Captain Defenestrator
Corrected entry: When Homer and Marge find Mrs. Bellamy's body, the body is shown to be neatly placed on the ground with Bellamy lying on her back. Homer then lifts up the body and it is shown that there is a pair of scissors stuck in her back. If scissors were stabbed in her back, then this means it wouldn't be possible for the body to be neatly placed on the floor lying on her back, as the scissors would cause the body to push upwards.
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.
Corrected entry: When Lisa mocks Bart in French, she sings, "Vous êtes Baby Stinkbreath." However, "Vous êtes" is the formal construction. A person would not use this when speaking to his or her brother, especially when deliberately being disrespectful towards him. "Tu es," the informal form, would be more appropriateDavidK93
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?
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
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
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.
Corrected entry: When Lisa crosses over to the boys side of the school, she looks in the window of the math class where the teacher asks the class the volume of a three circled snowman with a carrot nose. Lisa corrects Martin's answer by saying, "He forgot the volume of the carrot nose. One-third base times height!" This is incorrect, the volume of a cone (the shape of a carrot) is one-third pi radius squared times height. Or if she was going for the area instead, that is one-half the base time height. Lisa always prides herself on being incredibly smart, so she should not have made this mistake, especially when she was so confident.
Corrected entry: In the episode 'In The Name Of The Grandfather', Homer and Grandpa apparently buy the pub in a drunken mistake. The previous owner says, "You sure do know a lot about Irish Real Estate Law". However, the episode is set in Northern Ireland and so any laws are those of the UK. He wouldn't make that mistake.SexyIrishLeprechaun
Corrected entry: When Lisa is having her little town meeting awaiting the spoken words from Malibu Stacy she has all of her other dolls in front of her sitting in little chairs facing a little podium. However when Lisa is venting having heard the moronic slogans Malibu Stacy speaks when her string is pulled there is a close up on Lisa and then the next shot is a wider one of the room and it shows Lisa still holding Malibu Stacy but all of her dolls and furniture are gone. During the entire scene Lisa has her entire focus on the Malibu Stacy problem and is not seen moving about the room at all.Tobin OReilly
Corrected entry: When Lisa runs into Bart's room and throws a snowball at him, it is quite a powerful throw and on target as it hits him in the face. Yet when the kids are receiving academic alerts in the gymnasium, Lisa can barely throw the piece of paper she has been given. Surely she wouldn't have been able to throw the snowball so well if she lacked such skills?
Corrected entry: When Homer puts the family through an early morning fire drill and rushes them out to the car and drives away they are all in their respective sleeping clothes. However, when they pull up at the Duff Festival they are in their regular clothes, and knowing Homer he wouldn't think far enough ahead to bring a change of clothes for everyone.Tobin OReilly
Corrected entry: When Bart and Grampa are on the shore looking at the paintings that they have just rescued from the bottom of the sea, the authorities suddenly show up. How did they know that they would be there, and that they would have the paintings?
Corrected entry: When Marge and Homer are going back into the house while the gangster war is going on outside, you see the door where there is one of those small "eyes" so you can look out of the door. But when the small guy from Yakuza is walking out of the door, there suddenly is a little window in the door.don_corleone
Corrected entry: When Bart is crossing off the days in his calendar to show how long he has to go without seeing the no-good Jessica, he eventually circles the first day, a Monday, saying, "OK, day one," and then sits to wait. Immediately after, Marge sticks her head in the door announcing it's time for church - which is usually on Sunday.
Corrected entry: The towel Flanders wraps around Apu's head changes shape between when it is first applied, and when the customs agent sees Apu. First it is an almost perfectly round shape with no loose ends, then it becomes a more flat shape with a loose end hanging over Apu's shoulder. When Apu is seen inside the police van, the towel is once again in the original shape.Twotall
Corrected entry: The receptionist fires 4 shots from a double-barreled shotgun.AidanN
Corrected entry: While homer is guarding his sugar and sleeping outside, Marge nudges him to wake him up and he says in his sleep, "In this country, first you get the sugar, then you get the money, and then you get the woman." This is almost a direct quote from Al Pacino's movie Scarface in which he tells his best friend, "In this country, first you get the money, then you get the power and then you get the woman." Homer even says it in a similar accent.Simpsonholic
Corrected entry: When Burns and Grandpa first open the safe to cross off Asa Phelps, they turn all the keys to open, yet no spotlight shines out to sea. However the when Grandpa completes the same procedure on his own, the spotlight appears.
Corrected entry: Snake jumps into the crowd of Sadgasm fans and Chief Wiggum is chasing him. However, Snake wasn't a criminal in the nineties. In another episode, you find out that Snake became a criminal when Moe stole his gold to pay for dating Edna. This is the same year that she started teaching Bart and according to another episode, he's never been held back, so it's only been a year.Jack Kaltenbach
Corrected entry: When Homer is on the phone with someone in his work station, (I think it's Lisa) he's talking on a phone that's connected to his work panel. When he turns to his right, there's another phone connected to the wall. Why would one person need two phones?Jack Kaltenbach
Corrected entry: When the kids are broadcasting townspeople's secrets, and everyone else is in the meeting, Lisa says "And guess who's been practising medicine without a licence?" - scene cut, then cut back to the sign - "That's right: Homer Simpson" immediately afterwards, "D'OH!" is heard. The kids are OBVIOUSLY at least 1.5 miles from the town hall, so there should have been a sound delay in between Lisa's last statement and hearing Homer's voice.
Corrected entry: When Lisa first discovers the subliminal message in the Party Posse video by playing it backwards, we hear the phrase 'Join the navy' delivered wrong because the voice we hear backwards is deeper. The tone of voice shouldn't change when audio is reversed.
Corrected entry: Another flashback mistake: When Homer remembers finding out that Marge was pregnant with Bart, he screams, tears out his hair and runs upstairs, past a picture of Lisa, aged 8, in the pink hat she wears to church. The mistake being that in this flashback neither Bart nor Lisa have been born. This mistake re-occurs seconds later: when Homer remembers finding out Marge was pregnant with Lisa, he runs upstairs past the same picture of Lisa aged 8.
Corrected entry: In the opening sequence of the show Marge's car pulls in and parks on the left side of the driveway (actually garage but still the left side) while Homer's car is on the right side. However, throughout the series Homer has always parked his car on the left side and Marge has parked hers on the right.Tobin OReilly
Corrected entry: This is for the Season 17 episode 'Marge's Son Poisoning'. Principal Skinner says that he and his mother have been doing karaoke together since he was in the 4th grade, but in the Season 9 episode 'The Principal and the Pauper', it was revealed that the 'Seymour Skinner' we know is an impostor, a man who assumed his army sergeant's identity after he was killed in combat.enter_a_uh
Corrected entry: It takes two years for Marge's kitchen to be finished, but Bart and Milhouse are still planning their Playdude treehouse as if no time has passed at all. Surely in two years they would have either lost interest or finished making the Playdude treehouse? It only takes them a few weeks to get it up and running once the kitchen is finished.
Corrected entry: This concerns when Bart is in the ghost town, watching the robotic can-can dancers. When the four dancers first come out and start their kicks, one loses a leg which goes flying out of the window, breaking it. However when the camera cuts back to the dancers they all have both their legs.
Corrected entry: Lisa says that Jebediah Springfield is indeed Han Sprungfeld because there's no record of Jebediah Springfield before 1795. Yet in "Whacking Day", Bart mentions that there is a historical record of Jebediah Springfield serving in the Battle of Ticonderoga in 1777.
Corrected entry: During the "Who Shot Mr. Burns" alternate ending with Smithers shooting Mr.Burns, Smithers is smartly dressed and wearing his jacket. At the end of part 1 and start of part 2, Smithers was badly dressed. Carl also points out at the end of part 1, that Smithers left his jacket on his chair after the town hall meeting.
Corrected entry: Creator Matt Groening's initals were initially in Homer Simpson's hair and ear from the side. Matt Groening says himself (in one of the Simpsons comic book specials) that he changed it because it would be too distracting if the secret ever got out. He also says that he puts them in now only when he is drawing pictures for fans.ShooterMcGavin34
Corrected entry: After Homer gets his job back at the plant and returns home to complain to a pregnant Marge about how much he hates his life, a picture of Maggie can be seen hanging on the wall behind the couch - despite the fact that Maggie hasn't been born yet.Dandude776
Corrected entry: When Homer says that he is going to get Bart a birthday present, he runs to the car and drives away. Not only is it impossible for him to run out to the car, get inside, start the engine and drive away in the time he did, but he presumably used the back door (as we did not see him use the front door). Why didn't he use the front door? It would have been much quicker.
Corrected entry: Marge's real hair color changes throughout the show. There are some episodes that show her hair is naturally blue, such as ones with flashbacks that show her as a child or younger teen with blue hair. Other episodes indicate that her hair is really brown, but she dyes it.
Corrected entry: In this episode Apu says in the car on the way to Canada that he worships several gods. But in a much earlier episode, "Homer's Barbershop Quartet" during a flashback when Apu is asked to change his name he says "It is a great dishonour to my ancestors and my god."OL1V3R666
Corrected entry: In this episode Dr. Hibbert says the crayon was never spotted because he always covered it with his thumb, but in episode 4-18, "So It's Come to This: A Simpson's Clip Show", when Homer is in the hospital, his head X-ray is placed up on the light box on the wall, and is visible with nothing blocking it, so the crayon should have been spotted then.
Corrected entry: When Selma is in the bath with a cigarette, she sinks under the water dragging the cigarette with her. However, if you look and listen very closely, the sound of the cigarette being extinguished happens very slightly before it actually makes contact with the water.
Corrected entry: In the leprechaun short episode, a lot of things attend the wedding, including Kang and Kodos, the space aliens. One of Kang/Kodos starts crying and says: "I always secrete ocular fluid at weddings." Yet, in another clip episode, the space aliens invade Homer's Roasting Hour. Lisa thinks they're crying, but they say that they are vomiting from their eyes. Yet, in this episode, one of them starts to cry.
Corrected entry: When the woman in Krusty's studio says that the wolf gets spooked by loud noises, Krusty mentions "loud" as the day's secret word. There are video cameras in sight, indicating that it was being aired on TV. The only problem is, it's not going to be the secret word any longer if it is revealed like that.OL1V3R666
Corrected entry: Marge is reminding Lisa of the differences between the UK and the USA before she goes to visit Hugh's family in England. Obviously the steak-and-kidney pie remark is a joke, but she says, "Remember, a mile is called a kilometer..." No it isn't. The metric system is used in mainland Europe - miles over here are still miles.He's My Brother
Corrected entry: During the opening dream sequence on the "Planet of the Donuts", we get our first glimpse of the monster donut that will eat Homer when his shadow looms over Homer. In this shot the shadow is of a "regular" donut, i.e., one with a hole. In the next shot we see that the monster's hole area has teeth and is filled in with black; in other words, its hole is a regular mouth. As such it could not have had light shining through it to make the donut hole in his shadow.
Corrected entry: The symbols on the teletubbies' heads are wrong. They did use the word 'teletubbies', so they're meant to be the same as the real world.
Corrected entry: This is a minor mistake, but why does Luke say he needs help "hanging up these signs" when they have a stake on the end to impale them into the ground? If he had said "put up" then OK, but he said "hang," so this is a mistake because there is no way to hang them up like a hook or something.David Mercier
Corrected entry: When Homer is browsing the channels he says "seen it" to all of them. One of them is a non-violent Itchy & Scratchy episode as seen in "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge" (we don't see it but we can hear it). One says "Lemonade", and then Itchy (I think) instantly says "Please". But when you see the episode in "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge" there is a short break between their sayings. This was done on purpose to reduce time.OL1V3R666
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.
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.
Corrected entry: When Aunt Gladys Bouvier dies, she leaves her pet iguana to her sister, Jacqueline Bouvier (Marge's Mom.) If she never married as she claims, Jacqueline's maiden name would have been Bouvier, not her married name. This would also mean that Patty, Selma and Marge would not be Bouviers either.
Corrected entry: Neither Barney nor Homer underwent any sort of physical or medical examination at all. Homer has a heart condition, he has had bypass surgery, and yet he is still allowed to take part in the mission. Also, both of them are surely too overweight to be allowed to participate.
Corrected entry: Moe says there hasn't been a woman in the bar since 1979, implying that the bar has been around for at least a couple decades. But in a later episode, a flashback shows that Moe's grand opening was nine months before Bart was born. And we all know Bart is 10.
Corrected entry: When Lisa tells Marge about Luke for the first time, Marge says 'I didn't marry the first boy I - Well I did. But you shouldn't." Wrong. Before she had a crush on Homer, she loved Artie Ziff from high school. She didn't marry him, however. Everybody blatantly knows that Marge married Homer, her second crush.OL1V3R666
Corrected entry: In "Clown Without Pity", where the Krusty doll acts as Homer's servant, Homer says at one point "Yeah, dogs like to bury old junk", in which the Krusty doll says "Yeah, you stupid idiot.." The 'you stupid idiot' part is said with his mouth closed.
Corrected entry: When Bart makes a phone call to the Australian boy, it is daytime in both Springfield and Australia. However when the Australian boy's father phones Bart, it is again daytime in Australia but night-time in Springfield. But due to the Earth's rotation, surely it would have to be night-time in Australia or possibly very early in the morning. It seems to remain daytime there.OL1V3R666
Corrected entry: In one scene, when Bart is a child, he and Homer are watching Krusty and Sideshow Mel. However Sideshow Mel appeared only after Sideshow Bob was arrested, as his replacement. Krusty even mentions this in another episode, saying something like "The guy I got to replace you doesn't hold a candle to you Bob".
Corrected entry: When Sideshow Bob says that he hasn't made any progress on catching the person who is trying to kill Homer, he says, "Go ahead, shock me." and hands Marge the shocking remote. Sideshow Bob has been trying to get the remote ever since he was introduced into the episode. Why, if he has it, does he give it to Marge instead of taking it and trying to kill Bart, which he does at the end of the episode?
Corrected entry: During this episode, Krusty is seen looking at the Simpsons videos and some Jewish magazines. Krusty can obviously understand what they are saying (as he seems eager to watch a video he finds at the Simpsons house and he gets very upset looking at a Jewish father/son magazine). However, he is supposed to be illiterate, reinforced by the fact that Krusty couldn't read Bart's letter early in the same episode.
Corrected entry: When Mr Burns asks Larry about his life, he mentions that he stayed at the orphanage until he was 18, and then got the job at the stall. He also mentions the small detail of seeing a blimp. Yet at the end of the episode, he says he has a wife and kids. Wouldn't he have mentioned them earlier to Mr Burns, if he included such a petty detail as a blimp?
Corrected entry: On the series 4 DVD box set there is a message from Matt Groening. In the message he is talking about some of the episodes, and refers to "Ralph Wiggum's immortal 'Choo-Choo-Choose Me' valentine to Lisa." In actually, it was a valentine from Lisa to Ralph, and the card read "I Choo-Choo-Choose You."Scrappy
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the episode, where it has Troy Mclure on a TV programme, Troy Mclure has a microphone. Notice that as he walks down the orange stairs, there is a wire following him, which is attached to the microphone. When Troy reaches the bottom of the stairs the wire has now disappeared from the stairs.
Corrected entry: On the castle that King Henry VIII is supposed to live, you may notice the flags waving at the top. Most people probably know the flag of the U.K., but the animators have gotten the English flag wrong. They put a white cross on a blue background, but it should be a red cross on a white background.
Corrected entry: The Simpsons arrive back at their house and discover that the 2 carnival workers they let live with them have boarded up every window and way into the house. However, when they are in the tree-house, you can see the windows on the upper-floor have remained un-boarded.
Corrected entry: All the children have time to run out of the classroom, put their coats, hats, scarves and gloves on (which are probably in their lockers) in the time it takes for Skinner to open the blind on the window. There is no way they could have done this in such a short space of time.David Mercier
Corrected entry: When Bart and Milhouse buy the 'Super Squishy' Bart pays with a $20 bill. Apu gives no change but after this they go to a V.I.P. arcade, buy tickets for 'Catz' and buy loads of bubblegum. Considering they were out of money in the first place how did they afford all this?
