The Simpsons

Mother Simpson - S7-E8

Corrected entry: Tanks do not have cassette tape players, therefore Burns couldn't play his revenge tape before he tried to arrest Mona. (00:19:55)

Correction: Burns is filthy rich, and could easily have payed to have a cassette deck installed, seeing how he had always wanted to play Ride of the Valkyries while riding a tank into battle. It is of course a spoof of "Apocalypse Now", where helicopters were fitted with tape players and loudspeakers blasting the same music.

Mother Simpson - S7-E8

Corrected entry: When it goes back to the sixties and Mona Simpson is setting the bomb, there are 8 hippies around the bomb. When it cuts to the news bulletin about the lab, Kent Brockman says there were seven.

Correction: The only people who knew about it were Clancy Wiggum and Mr Burns, and both could have believed it was seven and not eight people in the lab. Like any news media outlet, sometimes they get the facts wrong.

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)
