Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

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)

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When we see Skinner's car before the newspapers fall on him, it is a light-brownish color. When the police arrive, it is the same color as the cop cars. (00:19:10)

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)

Other mistake: When Bart sees that Santa's Little Helper ate his homework, and the camera moves really fast, you can see that the Krusty Doll and picture frame have vanished from the desk beside his bed. (00:00:55 - 00:01:50)

Suggested correction: No, they are still there. You may need to use slow mo to see that it's there but it is. (Slow mo to invalidate a mistake is allowed).
