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)

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.

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.

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.
