The Simpsons

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)

Suggested correction: Because the shot has changed and he is now shown to be in the town.

Saturdays of Thunder - S3-E9

Yoshi

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)

Hurricane Neddy - S8-E8

Other mistake: The doctor in the insane asylum shows a video that shows a child Ned Flanders from 30 years ago. Ned is 60.

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

I, (Annoyed Grunt)-bot - S15-E9

Other mistake: When the bullies are riding around Bart and Milhouse there are problems with their water bottles. In some frames they vanish, in some others the bullies' far legs are drawn in front of the bottle. (00:01:40)

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.

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Other mistake: When Homer talks to Bart and Lisa through the window, he is standing almost straight up, but considering he is right in front of the TV in the next shot, he would've had to crouch down a little. (00:03:50)

Yoshi

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Other mistake: When Lisa checks Marge's resume, she reads it and turns it over. But there is no text on the back as there should be.

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

Radio Bart - S3-E13

Other mistake: When Bart falls down the well because Eddie tripped the rope, why would there be rocks falling down with him? (00:16:00)

Yoshi

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Other mistake: When Homer leaves the window, the TV is in a different area of the living room. (00:03:50)

Yoshi

My Mother the Carjacker - S15-E2

Other mistake: In the scene where the prisoners are singing along with Mona, two inmates have the same Identity number.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Other mistake: After the scene where Mr. Burns gives Smithers his picture of him and Elvis Presley, Homer asks Lisa a couple of questions about Germany. At the beginning of this brief scene, Lisa is reading a book, and from her point of view, her eyes are moving from right to left, which shows she is reading the wrong way on a single page. (00:11:10)

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)

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Other mistake: At the end, just before the Simpsons are turned inside-out, Bart is not only wearing his red shirt in bed, but sitting in a position that's not even possible in any position he was sleeping in. (00:20:35)

Boy Scoutz N the Hood - S5-E8

Other mistake: When Ned and Homer's raft is going fast, Ned decides to go on the left side of the gorge, so he paddles on the left side, which causes a raft to turn to the right, which 1, means the raft moved to the left, which is impossible, and 2, he wanted to go to the left, but paddled like he wanted the raft to turn right.

Lisa on Ice - S6-E8

Other mistake: As Homer is signing Bart's academic alert form just before Marge starts talking to Lisa you can read the writing below the "Academic Alert" title, but the writing is completely incoherent including sentences such as "IMAEGTSIAD TSNHOJI NAMREB". Update; some of the "words" or parts of them are people's names, such as David, Stuart and Allison, but backwards. (00:03:50)

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

Other mistake: When the Be Sharps are singing at the Statue of Liberty, in some shots the stars in the sky are black.

OL1V3R666

Saturdays of Thunder - S3-E9

Other mistake: During the shot when Marge asks Homer who 'Hank Jones' is, you can see that the couch curves down on the left side of the screen, therefore putting her on the other side of the couch. (00:07:40)

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)
