The Simpson's 138th Show Spectacular - S7-E10

Corrected entry: During the "Who Shot Mr. Burns" alternate ending with Smithers shooting Mr.Burns, Smithers is smartly dressed and wearing his jacket. At the end of part 1 and start of part 2, Smithers was badly dressed. Carl also points out at the end of part 1, that Smithers left his jacket on his chair after the town hall meeting.

Correction: As pointed out in the episode, the sequence was only filmed to keep the secret of who was the shooter from being leaked by the staff of the show. As pointed out, the DNA evidence in the episode would have to be ignored which proves the creators were never concerned about continuity as the sequence would have been unusable. In addition as pointed out on the site, deleted scenes or alternate sequences cannot be considered mistakes to the final cut.

The Simpson's 138th Show Spectacular - S7-E10

Corrected entry: In this episode Troy shows us that when Maggie is scanned it says "NRA4EVR". If you pause any other episode you will see that when Maggie is scanned it reads "$847.63".

Correction: Not a mistake, it's a joke.

Show generally

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)
