Continuity mistake: Just after Bart has played the guitar in the street, he picks up two books. Before Bart picks them up they are green but they instantly turn blue when he does pick them up. Then when he gets on the bus the books have disappeared completely. (00:10:10)
Continuity mistake: Bart's guitar is lefthanded. So when the righthanded Otto plays it on the bus, the guitar is flipped over, with the little speaker on the top. But when Otto is playing it later in the garage, it is a normal righthanded guitar, with the little speaker on the bottom.
Continuity mistake: When Skinner is calmly driving the bus on the way to school, they have obviously gone past a number of power lines (you can see that they have because you can see them in the background). However, when Skinner is trying to get onto the main road, the power lines have disappeared from the background. (00:12:45)
Continuity mistake: At the very end of the episode, when the kids are lined up to wait to see whether Otto is back driving the bus, there are several shots that switch back and forth between a direct view of the kids and a shot from behind. Lisa changes position between shots. (00:21:15)
Continuity mistake: When Otto is playing the guitar with bart in the middle of the night, there are close-ups of Otto whenever he is singing. You can see that the wall behind him is plain. However, when there is a wide shot of otto and bart, the wall behind otto has two tables leaned against them. (00:15:50)
Other mistake: Right before Homer and Bart head to the concert, Homer has the high-pitched ringing in his ears while Marge is talking. Then just as Homer says, "I hear you. C'mon, boy," note Selma's and Patty's skin over their scoop necklines are not colored in properly, it's the same color as their dresses. (00:01:45)
Continuity mistake: When Otto's guitar playing wakes Marge and Homer they go to the garage. Note the direction of the door when Homer opens it toward the right, but when Marge asks Bart what's going on, the door's open the opposite way toward the left. (00:15:55)
