Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes? - S3-E24

Other mistake: On the DVD, When Homer is sitting on the Spinemelter, he says at one point "I've tried to fill it with family, religion, community service, but those were dead ends. This card is the answer". However the subtitles say "I've tried to fill it with family, religion, but those things were dead ends. This card is the answer", leaving "community service" out.

Suggested correction: It is very common to shorten the subtitles so viewers don't have to read much.

Das Bus - S9-E14

Other mistake: When everyone is eating the boar at the end, the boar is completely intact, yet everyone except for Lisa is seen with a piece of it. (00:20:30)

Tree House of Horror IV: The Simpson's Halloween Special IV - S5-E5

Other mistake: When Bart says the picture of the school bus is actually called The Ghoul Bus, Lisa points out the name tag says The School Bus. If you closely at the name tag, you can see nothing is written on it.

Casual Person

G.I. (Annoyed Grunt) - S18-E5

In Marge We Trust - S8-E22

Other mistake: When Ned Flanders is calling Marge and Reverend Lovejoy from the Leftorium, he says that the three hooligans are in the shop on their motorbikes. But a few minutes before when Ned goes outside the shop to tell the boys to clear off, their bikes are nowhere in sight.

Black Widower - S3-E21

Other mistake: When Sideshow Bob leaves Selma to watch MacGyver, the room opposite is 350. Later when he is being taken away by the police there is a room 44. It's unlikely these two numbers would be on the same floor.

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.

I'm With Cupid - S10-E14

Other mistake: When Nelson puts the intestine into the model's mouth, the size of the gut should not increase. It is the same amount of stuff going in a cycle, so where does all the stuff come from? (00:03:15)

I'm With Cupid - S10-E14

Other mistake: The amount of gunk that come from Bart's model at the start is not proportionate to the size of the model. In other words, there couldn't be enough gunk to cover the entire inside of the bus.

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)

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
