The Simpsons

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Corrected entry: When Skinner is doing lines on the board, Bart shows how his wrist sounds after years of doing lines. However, he rotates his left hand, and in every other episode where Bart writes anything we see he is right handed.

Correction: Bart is (and has always been) left-handed. Check out which hand he writes with in the opening credits. This is because Matt Groening himself is left-handed - it's just that sometimes the animators forget, so in some episodes Bart is shown to be writing with his right hand.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Corrected entry: All the children have time to run out of the classroom, put their coats, hats, scarves and gloves on (which are probably in their lockers) in the time it takes for Skinner to open the blind on the window. There is no way they could have done this in such a short space of time.

David Mercier

Correction: Take into consideration that this is a cartoon and things are sometimes faster than real life. Also do you think Homer can survive several falls down into Springfield Gorge?

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)
