Tree House of Horror VI - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: In the 'Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace' segment, in Martin's dream, Willie emerges from the blackboard with a rake which has a wooden handle. When the shot changes the rake handle has changed to being metal. (00:08:25)

Children of a Lesser Clod - S12-E20

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.

Lisa's Sax - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: When Bart is standing on the bench, Jimbo and Milhouse are standing in The Front row, on the right side of the screen. But when there's the closeup (a second later), there are children shown in front of Jimbo and Milhouse and the girl with the purple hair is gone.

You Only Move Twice - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When the family are talking and Marge is sitting on the sofa, Bart runs and shoves Lisa (who is in front of Marge) out of the way, but in the next shot, she is still in front of Marge, despite the fact Bart pushed her out of his way.

Rosebud - S5-E4

Audio problem: At the end of the episode, there is a clip in 1 million AD. Mr Burns gets Bobo (his teddy bear) and says something to him. When he says this the lip sync is a little bit out as the audio doesn't match what he's saying.

Tree House of Horror XII - S13-E1

Continuity mistake: In "Wiz Kids", Bart stabs Montymort in his shin which is open (i.e. not covered by what he's wearing). Only a little blood pours out. Then Monty raises his shin into shot and there is not only a puncture in the leg of his clothing, but the wound is covered in blood. When he falls, and Slithers eats him moments later, there is no damage at all. (00:19:55)

Lisa the Vegetarian - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: When Skinner is addressing the class before the meat video we first see him with black trays on the desk to the far right. In the next shot they're much closer to him.

Bart of Darkness - S6-E1

Factual error: When you see Ned Flanders put the earth back inside the hole, he puts it back in much faster than is possible. In one shot, he is only just starting to put it back in, then you see Bart who talks to himself for a few seconds, then back to Flanders, who has finished burying what is later to be revealed as the plant that he (Ned) drowned.
