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 as if he had won.
Other mistake: When the Simpsons' drives the electaurus off the edge of the harbour, it is shown that the front of the car goes downwards. When it cuts to the interior view with the Simpsons' screaming, the view from the back window is tilting down, suggesting the rear is going down and the front coming up. But in the next shot the car is seen in the water with the front down.
Other mistake: In the scene where the Simpsons are viewing the path of the Corvair's Re-entry, the blip representing the spaceship crosses the entire US from North-West to South-East in about three seconds. This is really impossible, even for something going as fast as a spaceship on re-entry would be.
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.
Other mistake: In the beginning of the episode when Chief Wiggum orders a battering ram through the front door of a house, Reverend Lovejoy opens the door and questions what they are doing. Chief Wiggum says "isn't this 742 Evergreen Terrace?" to which Lovejoy replies that it's the house next door. In the next shot, you see Snake pulling out of the garage and speeding away. Everybody knows that 742 Evergreen Terrace is, in fact, the Simpson residence.
Other mistake: Bart and Lisa overload the nuclear power plant to create a city-wide blackout so everyone can see the meteor shower. All the lights in Springfield blow out. Yet when we see the Simpsons sitting on their lawn watching the shower, every single window in their house is yellow, as if every room has their lights on. It is the only house shown with power.
Other mistake: In 'Homega man', Homer goes into the bomb shelter and does not shut the door, and you can still see it open for a while after he is in there. Herman does not close it behind him - you can tell by his skeleton's position. But Homer opens the door to leave the shelter after he has eaten the food, and it must have been closed for him to have survived the atomic attack, because it vaporised Herman, who was only a few feet away.

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.
Other mistake: In "Desperately Xeeking Xena", at one point she approaches the Collector, who is about to get a light saber. We can see the back of the pouch that Xena is in, but the tape on the other side isn't visible, even though it is a transparent pouch.
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.
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.
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.
Other mistake: Near the beginning of the episode when Selma and Sideshow Bob arrive at the Simpsons' house, Bart and Lisa scream and hide behind Marge. Selma says "What the - ?" but the DVD subtitles say that Marge says it. It is shown "MARGE: What the - ?".
Other mistake: When the pupils are doing the test at school, you hear Miss Hoover say a question with three possible answers; but 1) There are 5 possible answers on the test when we see Lisa doing it, and 2) Miss Hoover says the 60th question, but Lisa looks to be nowhere near the 60th question.
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.

Other mistake: In the end credits where it says, "Special Guest Voice", Marcia Wallace's name is there. Mrs. Krabappel was originally supposed to be in the episode but wasn't because Jose Canseco disliked his original part. He was originally slated to wake up in bed with her and miss the game, but Canseco's then-wife, Esther Haddad, objected.
Other mistake: When Marge takes Homer back inside, his car is seen blocking the traffic. But at least one side of the traffic is driving on the wrong side of the road. The drivers behind Homer's car are on the right side of the road. And the drivers behind Homer's car from the opposite direction are driving on the left side but facing the drivers behind Homer's car on the other side. Either way, one half of the traffic are driving on the wrong side of the road.
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.

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.

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.
