Other mistake: Apu already knew Homer because in the flashback episode, Homer's barbershop quartet, they were in a band. However, in the scene where Homer enters the Quick-E-Mart, Apu refers to Homer as steady customer as if he didn't know him.

Suggested correction: This isn't technically a mistake, as it wasn't probably planned that Apu and Homer knew each other in the past. Therefore, the Season 5 premiere is the one who brought this plot hole, not this episode.

Krusty Gets Busted - S1-E12

Character mistake: In the scene where the imposter Krusty is robbing the Kwik-e-mart, Krusty's hair is blueish green just like the real Krusty, but when Homer is describing the robber he says the the crook has red hair. This is so you have more clues on who the real impostor is. The imposter Krusty is really Sideshow-Bob who has red hair.

Krusty Gets Busted - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: In "Krusty Gets Busted", Krusty's natural skin colour is established as yellow. In "Brush With Greatness" we see him wiping off the clown makeup to reveal that he has yellow skin. But in "Homer's Triple Bypass", he comes to visit Homer, with his white clown face, and tells him that "this isn't make-up". Other episodes after that also show that his skin is white.
