The Otto Show - S3-E22

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.

The Otto Show - S3-E22

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)

The Otto Show - S3-E22

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)

The Otto Show - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: When Skinner starts to drive the bus, he says "Off we go". During this shot the sky is a brighter colour when you look out of the bus windows than if you just look outside the bus. (00:12:15)

The Otto Show - S3-E22

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)

Suggested correction: Not true, in the close up of Otto singing the corner of some shelves are visible. These shelves become visible when the camera pans round to show him turning to look at Homer and Marge. Meaning we see 2 different backgrounds depending on the camera angle. No mistake.

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: In some shots Otto's beaded bracelet vanishes and reappears, such as when he's on the school bus before the accident. Also, note a watch suddenly appears on his left wrist then it disappears, on the school bus. (00:11:05 - 00:15:15)

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

TV Announcer: The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield. It's all here: fast kicking, low scoring. And ties? You bet.
Bart: Hey Dad, how come you've never taken us to see a soccer game?
Homer: I don't know.
TV Announcer: You'll see all your favorite soccer stars. Like Arriaga, Arriaga II, Barriaga, Aruglia, and Pizzozza.
Homer: Oh, I've never heard of those people.
TV Announcer: And they'll all be signing autographs.
Homer: Woohoo!
TV Announcer: This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on Earth. Mexico or Portugal.
