Factual error: Alec Baldwin, as an expert on manatees, says that they are also called dugongs. Manatees are found in Atlantic coastal waters and in the Amazon and tributaries. The dugong is a distinct species found in the coastal waters of the Indian and southwest Pacific oceans.
Factual error: The cover of "World's Finest Comics" #94 is shown on the wall at the comic book store. It features Superman with a sign that says, "Gotham or Bust," and Batman gulping. The actual cover of "World's Finest Comics" #94 shows Superman being sprayed with liquid kryptonite while Batman and Robin catch sight of him.
Factual error: When you see Ned Flanders put the earth back inside the hole, he puts it back in much faster than is possible. In one shot, he is only just starting to put it back in, then you see Bart who talks to himself for a few seconds, then back to Flanders, who has finished burying what is later to be revealed as the plant that he (Ned) drowned.
Factual error: When Bart declares war on Nelson, Herman uses the declaration from the Franco-Prussian war and puts "Bart" in place of "Otto Von Bismarck". The thing is, Bismarck didn't declare the Franco-Prussian War, Napoleon III of France did. A small error, maybe, but something that a war buff like Herman should know.
Factual error: In "Nightmare On Evergreen Terrace", Martin has a dream, in which he speaks Latin. At one point, he says a verb that doesn't exist: "morire". The words is "mori" (to die), "moritur" (noun dies) or "moreris" (you die). The "moirie" is also on the blackboard behind Martin. (00:08:20)
Factual error: Homer creates a giant sugar ball by making a normal sized cotton candy on a paper cone, and then coating it with liquid caramel. The cotton candy holds its shape and Homer continues to expand it with more cotton candy and caramel. However, cotton candy dissolves very quickly and tears apart easily. Between the weight and moisture content of the caramel, the original cotton candy would have immediately melted and/or collapsed.
