The Simpsons

Last Exit to Springfield - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When the dentist shows Ralph the Big Book of British Smiles, he first shows him a picture of Sherlock Holmes with horrid teeth and all of his teeth are there. When Ralph starts getting terrified of it, it shows the same picture, but this time one of his teeth on the bottom right hand corner of his mouth is missing.

Bart Gets an Elephant - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: Immediately after being chained to a tree, Stampy crushes several objects (a lawnmower, a bike, a doghouse, and a trash can). In the very next shot, which comes after a commercial break, all of these objects are in fine shape. Then the shot changes again and we see them destroyed once again. (00:09:30)

The Crepes of Wrath - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Agnes meets Bart and his friend, it cuts to Skinner, then to Bart's group and quickly back to Skinner. When it goes to Bart's group (before Skinner) Lewis is yellow like the rest, in all other scenes he is black.

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: Just before Lisa's Presidential "refund adjustment" speech she pushes Bart's tape player off the desk and we can hear it smash off screen. Later in the episode when Lisa agrees to legalise it, he starts playing the same player.

Continuity mistake: When the women of the neighbourhood throw Marge a baby shower because she's pregnant with Maggie, Ruth Powers is one of the ladies there. Ruth only met Marge when she moved to Springfield with her daughter in "New Kid on the Block" (Maggie was already born in the episode).

Mayored to the Mob - S10-E9

Other mistake: After Bart complains that Jonathan Harris isn't Dr. Smith, Harris says for Bart to meet him in the food court. Then the Robot says "Danger Bart Simpson, danger." How did he know Bart's name?
