Raging Abe Simpson and His Grumbling Grandson in 'The Curse of the Flying Hellfish' - S7-E22

Corrected entry: When Bart and Grampa are on the shore looking at the paintings that they have just rescued from the bottom of the sea, the authorities suddenly show up. How did they know that they would be there, and that they would have the paintings?

Correction: The authorities mention they had been tracking the paintings for quite some time. Being the location of the paintings had been hidden even from those who stole it (Grandpa Simpson & Mr Burns had to get the keys to find it), the authorities would have likely tracked them until they did recover the paintings. If the pair had been tipped off they likely would have not tried to recover the paintings and the authorities might never find them.

Correction: That isn't a doubble barreled shotgun. The fact that the receptionist moves a lever between shots indicates that she has more bullets in the gun.

Corrected entry: When Burns and Grandpa first open the safe to cross off Asa Phelps, they turn all the keys to open, yet no spotlight shines out to sea. However the when Grandpa completes the same procedure on his own, the spotlight appears.

Correction: Burns and Grandpa only turn the two keys they brought with them to Asa's funeral,hence there is no spotlight.

Corrected entry: When Mr. Burns crashes through Bart's window on the crane, no-one comes to investigate despite the fact that a crash like that would most likely alert someone.

Correction: These people can sometimes sleep through anything. When Bart's elephant stormed off in the middle of the night they didn't notice the elephant or Bart were missing until the morning.

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)
