Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the episode, Nelson punches Martin. Surely Marge would have noticed it, but she didn't.

Correction: Not really a mistake. She just didn't notice it.

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Corrected entry: When Homer says that he is going to get Bart a birthday present, he runs to the car and drives away. Not only is it impossible for him to run out to the car, get inside, start the engine and drive away in the time he did, but he presumably used the back door (as we did not see him use The Front door). Why didn't he use The Front door? It would have been much quicker.

Correction: Matt Groening (the creator) has said that they decided to do an inside joke in the show of characters driving away too quickly, so when Homer does it, it is on purpose.

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Corrected entry: In "Clown Without Pity", when Homer buys a Krusty doll for Bart, the guy at the shop doesn't give it to him inside a box. When Homer gives it to Bart, it is inside a box.

Correction: There may have been more than one item of this doll and the one he showed Homer was for display purposes. The fact that there was a phone number to call for problems with the doll makes it very possible this wasn't just a one off doll. Even if there hadn't been more than one, he may have packaged it up before Homer left the store.

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Corrected entry: In "Clown Without Pity", where the Krusty doll acts as Homer's servant, Homer says at one point "Yeah, dogs like to bury old junk", in which the Krusty doll says "Yeah, you stupid idiot.." The 'you stupid idiot' part is said with his mouth closed. (00:07:15)

Correction: Krusty mumbled the words "you stupid idiot" and mumbling doesn't require your mouth to fully open.

Brawl in the Family - S13-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer's Vegas wife shows him the video in front of Marge, it shows Homer kissing Ned. This didn't happen when she showed it in the Vegas episode.

Trivia: Maggie scans as $847.63 in the supermarket at the beginning (not NRA4EVER, as Troy Maclure asserts in 3F31 "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular), the price it costs to feed and care for the average American baby every month.

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.
