Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Corrected entry: When Homer gets stuck in the water slide, a few kids are sent down to dislodge him, and they get stuck too. However, when the section of pipe containing him is removed later, the kids are nowhere to be seen.

Correction: They were able to pull the kids back up the slide, since they weren't wedged in the pipe like Homer was.

Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Corrected entry: Marge should not have received the letter from Ringo Starr because of the fact that she was in her teens when she wrote the letter to him, and she was not living in the Simpson family's current house.

Correction: I'm assuming Springfield has a postal service, and all postal services have the change of address forms she could have (and probably did) fill out when she moved.

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)

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.
