The Simpsons

Summer of 4'2 - S7-E25

Factual error: Bart uses Milhouse's glasses as binoculars, but as Milhouse is near-sighted this wouldn't work.

Tanngrisnir

Selma's Choice - S4-E13

Factual error: When Selma throws Moleman out of her car, the passenger door is hinged at the rear instead of The Front as it should be on a relatively-modern hatchback, and the window crank is visible on the outside of the door.

Holidays of Future Passed - S23-E9

Factual error: When Lisa is trying to find Zia on the internet, the Google design shows Doctor Seuss because it is his birthday. Doctor Seuss' birthday is March 2nd. This takes place on December 24th.

Casual Person

The Burns and the Bees - S20-E8

Factual error: When the bees fly to Mr. Burns' stadium, they are shown as seeing the stadium with 11 eyes. Bees only have 5 eyes. (00:18:15)

Casual Person

Rosebud - S5-E4

Factual error: When Homer wakes up and sees the calender, which is marked as "Burns birth day", the calender is showing the month of September having 31 days.

Bart the Mother - S10-E3

Factual error: When Bart is at Nelson's house and Nelson is firing the BB gun, bullets should come out of his gun when he pumps it. None ever come out, and several times he is shown firing without pumping.

I Don't Wanna Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - S19-E4

Factual error: During Dwight's attempted bank robbery, he gets hit with a couple of dye packs, then appears a few shots later totally clean. The dye packs banks use are notoriously difficult to wash off once they're triggered; even if Dwight did manage to clean himself up, there would still be remnants of dye on him.

Cubs Fan

Marge vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays - S15-E8

Factual error: The symbols on the heads of the Teletubbies on stage are wrong. They did use the word 'teletubbies', so they're meant to be the same as the real world. (00:05:40)

Brawl in the Family - S13-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer's Vegas wife shows him the video in front of Marge, it shows Homer kissing Ned. This didn't happen when she showed it in the Vegas episode.
