There's No Disgrace Like Home - S1-E4

Other mistake: When Homer is at Moe's, there is a boxing match happening on TV. There is a bald guy who is getting considerably battered by the opponent and gets knocked out, and then for some absurd reason he is victoriously standing and smiling as if he had won.

The Crepes of Wrath - S1-E11

Other mistake: After Ugolin (one of the French men looking after Bart) has taken Bart to the Chateau Maison, Cesar and Ugolin speak. (they aren't visible in this shot) Ugolin says "Escape is impossible", but the subtitles say that Cesar says it and vice versa for when Cesar actually speaks.

Krusty Gets Busted - S1-E12

Other mistake: Apu already knew Homer because in the flashback episode, Homer's barbershop quartet, they were in a band. However, in the scene where Homer enters the Quick-E-Mart, Apu refers to Homer as steady customer as if he didn't know him.

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Other mistake: When Bart enters the school bus at the day of history test, we see close-up of his "Early American History" book open about in the middle, on the page saying "Chapter 1". (00:06:10)

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Other mistake: When the town is singing the Christmas carol you can see Sideshow Bob, who was arrested and jailed in series 1. We know he hasn't been released, as that's a plot point over the show. (00:18:10)

Simpson and Delilah - S2-E2

Other mistake: When Homer is giving people tartar sauce at the cafeteria, he says "plenty for everybody" with his mouth closed at the end of him saying it. However the photo in the newspaper is shown with his mouth open. Also, for the last part of "everybody" his mouth doesn't move.

Bart vs. Thanksgiving - S2-E7

Other mistake: In the DVD booklet, two errors are made for this episode. The booklet says Homer accuses Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and Bart was jealous of Lisa's centre piece. These are both incorrect: First, it wasn't Homer who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving, it was Marge who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and second, at no point throughout the episode was Bart ever jealous of Lisa's centre piece.

Bart vs. Thanksgiving - S2-E7

Other mistake: While Kent Brockman says "This reporter smells another local Emmy" after he gets back into his van, his face is drawn incorrectly.

Bart the Daredevil - S2-E8

Other mistake: After the boxing match, the boys start "boo-ing" to the TV, and for a few frames Lewis goes from black to yellow, then to black, causing a flashing effect. (00:02:45)

Bart Gets Hit By a Car - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Marge is being questioned, before she says 'If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all', there is a shot over her shoulder looking at the blue haired lawyer. Not only is he (the lawyer) there directly in front of her, but he is also sitting on the bench with Burns. In all other shots his chair is empty as it should be.

Stark Raving Dad - S3-E1

Other mistake: There are two mistakes when Bart calls the Krusty Hotline: 1, The cereal box says the phone number is '1-909-O-U-KLOWN.' Bart presses eight buttons on the phone. 2, as he is dialing, you can HEAR seven buttons being pressed. (00:01:45)

Yoshi

Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington - S3-E2

Other mistake: The first time we see all three children staring at the TV, the interior of the Simpson house seems different. (00:02:30)

Yoshi

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Bart sees that Santa's Little Helper ate his homework, and the camera moves really fast, you can see that the Krusty Doll and picture frame have vanished from the desk beside his bed. (00:00:55 - 00:01:50)

Yoshi

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Other mistake: When the wheel falls off Bart's skateboard, in the shot where he curves left sharply, you don't see the school in the background. How could he be at the social club if he just left school? (00:05:20)

Yoshi

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Other mistake: When Krusty dials '1-909-SEX-CHAT,' he presses '90190' on the phone. (00:03:50)

Yoshi

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Other mistake: At the very end, when Krusty's father throws the pie in his face, the food instantly comes off his face. (00:21:40)

Yoshi

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Other mistake: As Mr. Burns' fireplace rotates, the items on the top should have fallen off, but they didn't. They also disappear/reappear between frames. (00:16:10)

Yoshi

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Other mistake: As Kang and Kodos fly away from Earth in their spaceship, you can see that the Earth has been coloured wrong. The continents are blue, and the sea is green.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Other mistake: When Lisa rings Homer to tell him that she loves him, the shot of her talking is re-used from "Bart's Dog Gets an F." We can tell this because her cheeks inexplicably appear puffed up (in "Bart's Dog Gets an F" she had mumps).

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)
