Continuity mistake: Homer is interrupted from praying by a nurse who comes into his room and says, "Ssh." However, when she says this, the door is closed, and it is only in the next shot where the door is open immediately and she is pointing to the NO PRAYING sign.
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.
Continuity mistake: In the 'Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace' segment, in Bart's dream you see a shadow of what looks like someone with four knife-fingers. Then when we see who it is, it is Willie holding a rake. But the rake has five tines, not four, so the shadow is wrong.
Continuity mistake: When the Stonecutters are singing "We do", the position of several characters, particularly Number 51 and Chief Wiggum, change randomly as the camera angles change. Number 51 starts at the end of the table on the right side, with Chief Wiggum two seats to the left of him. In later shots, Number 51, then Wiggum are both switched to the same position, midway up the left side. Then, when the song ends, Wiggum has disappeared, and Number 51 remains in this new position.
Continuity mistake: After Kirk (Milhouse's dad) drives away from the stadium, Bart and Homer are walking along and you can see the Drink Duff sign right next to the edge of the fence. The next shot of Homer noticing the sign, the sign is further away from the edge of the fence and is smaller.
Continuity mistake: Just after Bart has played the guitar in the street, he picks up two books. Before Bart picks them up they are green but they instantly turn blue when he does pick them up. Then when he gets on the bus the books have disappeared completely.
Continuity mistake: When Bart and Lisa are trying to win back Homer's affection they are sitting on the top of the stairs and push the skateboard with the present on it down the stairs. In the next shot it rolls into Homer's legs yet it would be impossible as he was standing in the main living room which is to the right of the stairs. Pushing the present down the stairs it would go straight into the front door.
Continuity mistake: In "Desperately Xeeking Xena", as Lucy Lawless grabs the lips of the Collector, you can see a big "C" on the back of his cape. After she has thrown him across the room and he gets up, the "C" is gone. It reappears later in the fight.
