Suggested correction: In the first shot he is holding on using on his one free arm - as soon as his second arm is free he grabs on with that as well, this is the change of position listed.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Bart crashes at the door of the Legitimate Businessman's Social Club, his head is facing the door. You can only see this for several frames. In the next shot, his head is facing the sky. (00:05:25)

Suggested correction: There are two boxes of cereal on the table. One brown (Bart's Frosted Frosty Krusty Flakes) and one pink (Lisa's Jackie O's).

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Other mistake: When the wheel falls off Bart's skateboard, in the shot where he curves left sharply, you don't see the school in the background. How could he be at the social club if he just left school? (00:05:20)

Suggested correction: Because the shot has changed and he is now shown to be in The Town.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Bart's bedroom's window faces the backyard. When the bus leaves, it faces Evergreen Terrace. At the beginning of Bart's nightmare, it faces the backyard again. (00:00:55 - 00:15:45)

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: There are three mistakes when court is dismissed: 1) the people standing around disappear, 2) the two men with Fat Tony disappear for one shot, and 3) when Bart says that crime doesn't pay, Marge is suddenly standing beside Bart. (00:20:35)

Suggested correction: There are also 3 corrections here. 1) the only people standing near the bench are Lionel Hutz and Seymour Skinner. Seymour is simply out of shot and Hutz is on screen. 2) Legs and Louie don't disappear they remain standing on the steps but due to the camera angle that is now looking across the steps rather than up the steps so they are out of shot. 3) There is a close up of Bart and Fat Tony long enough for Marge to walk over.

Suggested correction: No it is simply out of shot. There are 4 hooks on the lower half of the racks, in the second shot only 3 pegs are visible and we see Bart put his hat on the end peg.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Bart realizes he forgot his permission slip, the camera shows us that the paper is half-under his pillow. However, when he got out of his bed at the very beginning, the paper wasn't under his pillow. (00:01:00 - 00:03:05)

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.
