Colonel Homer - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Homer decides he wants to stay with Lurlene, she locks the door about 3 times before going to kiss Homer, but when Homer leaves, he just opens the door, he doesn't unlock anything.

Beyond Blunderdome - S11-E1

Continuity mistake: The "dummy" in the episode changes consistently from a real character to a dummy sometimes. When Mel jumps into the vehicle in the museum the "dummy" moves aside. When Mel shoves it out of the way, it stays in one rigid position as if it is a dummy. During the chase, the "dummy" falls on the car behind and its facial expression changes. But when one of the guys from THAT car (not the one Mel was in) goes to the dummy, its head is ripped off and you can see that it is stuffed.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Audio problem: In 'The Shinning' when the Simpsons finally arrive at the house, they climb out the car and start yelling "Hi." and "We're here." Listen to Lisa's voice, and watch her mouth. The audio is totally out of sync with her mouth movements. (00:02:30)

Lisa the Beauty Queen - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Krusty the Clown arrives at the beauty pageant his tie is done up. When he goes on stage it is undone.

Homer's Triple Bypass - S4-E11

Other mistake: In the beginning of the episode when Chief Wiggum orders a battering ram through The Front door of a house, Reverend Lovejoy opens the door and questions what they are doing. Chief Wiggum says "isn't this 742 Evergreen Terrace?" to which Lovejoy replies that it's the house next door. In the next shot, you see Snake pulling out of the garage and speeding away. Everybody knows that 742 Evergreen Terrace is, in fact, the Simpson residence.

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When the Repo Man takes Marge's ring, we see the ring on her left hand. It wasn't visible in the shot before. (00:14:40)

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When Homer tells the family where the horse will be kept, if you look in the background there are drapes on the wall. These drapes weren't visible when Marge and Homer walked in the kitchen.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Bart arrives home after his bad day, he is seen wearing his lucky red hat. It was never visible anywhere before he got home. (00:07:10)

Bart of Darkness - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: When Bart is watching Rod and Todd walk over to Ned Flanders, you can see their reflections on Bart's telescope. Their reflections do not match their actual positions.

Bart the General - S1-E5

Audio problem: When Grandpa Simpson is typewriting a letter in his room, the words he's spelling out loud don't match his fingers hitting the keys.

The Simpsons Halloween Special: Tree House of Horror - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After the aliens have dropped off the Simpsons in their back yard, Marge is seen wearing her usual red pearls. Except in the final shot of the family. Then her pearls are white. This is not due to the alien light source altering the colors in the segment, because Marge's pearls have been a dark color through the whole episode, even inside the alien spaceship.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: When the children are sleeping in the canteen at school, Bart is resting his head on a red sweater. In the close up of him and Lisa, the sweater has now turned dark green. It's not because of the dark that we see it like that because there is a bit of light at the beginning of the next shot and we see the jumper to be dark green.

The Homer They Fall - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: The "Stinger" only appears on the boxing gloves after Moe passes them to Homer. It is not there in all preceding shots.

Bart the General - S1-E5

Factual error: When Bart declares war on Nelson, Herman uses the declaration from the Franco-Prussian war and puts "Bart" in place of "Otto Von Bismarck". The thing is, Bismarck didn't declare the Franco-Prussian War, Napoleon III of France did. A small error, maybe, but something that a war buff like Herman should know.

Sunday, Cruddy Sunday - S10-E12

Continuity mistake: When Homer tells Lisa who is going with him to the Super Bowl, he says Comic Book Guy is going. In the shot showing the people lining up, Comic Book Guy is not there. He then appears on the bus later on.

Homer's brain: It's simple, just use reverse psycology.
Homer: Reverse psycology? That sounds too complicated.
Homer's brain: Alright, don't use reverse psycology.
Homer: Alright, I will!

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.
