$pringfield (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling) - S5-E10

Revealing mistake: At the dinner table Homer says something like "as you know it's always been my lifelong ambition to be a blackjack dealer." During this line, for some reason they appear to have used a clip from an older episode (Season 3 / Episode 3 - When Flanders Failed) and dubbed the line over. For one thing, the animation is of a much lower standard than the rest of the episode. And perhaps even more telling, when he says it, he is holding a fork with some food on it, but from the earlier shots we know there is no food in front of him.

Suggested correction: He is simply out of shot due to the camera angles.

Lenny is against the counter in front of the donut boxes. The next angle we see Homer standing in front of the same part of the counter with the donuts. Lenny should be there.

Bart the Genius - S1-E2

Deliberate mistake: When Bart is in the genius school, the teacher asks him if he knows what happens if he adds an acid to a base. He replies yes, adds them anyway and the lab explodes and a green goo comes out, turning Bart green. If you add an acid to a base, you just get salt and water.

Bart the Daredevil - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The guardrail at the Springfield Gorge keeps changing between shots when Bart is about to make his big jump; in the first wide shot there is a short rail opposite the "stone ramp." Then in the Bart-POV shot from atop the ramp, the rail is much longer, and the parking lot and picnic area behind it have disappeared. And when Homer is actually jumping the gorge, the rail disappears altogether.
