Radio Bart - S3-E13

Revealing mistake: At Wall E. Weasel's, when Nelson is throwing balls into the 'Skeeball' machine, the animation is repeated because Bart keeps moving in and out of the camera's view. (00:04:10)

When the shot is more on Bart when he's asking what Sherri and Terri are talking about, there's no street lamps seen, even though when it cuts back to the girls, there are street lamps seen that should have been visible in the previous shot.

This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: When Bart and Ralph are in the prison and see the key, the window's shadow is of four squared panels. When they go to pick the key up and the rat takes it the shadow shows 3 rectangular panels.

A Star is Burns - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When the Simpson family and Jay Sherman are having dinner, things like the food from their plates, their knives and forks and even Homer's burping trophy disappear and then reappear for a couple of seconds before disappearing again.

Mr. Plow - S4-E9

Revealing mistake: At the car convention, Homer chides Bart through the windscreen of Bonnie and Clyde's car. However, Homer's body is not seen through the holes in the windshield, which shows that the holes in the windshield were achieved via a layer of red-coloured holes. (00:04:25)

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Other mistake: In "Desperately Xeeking Xena", at one point she approaches the Collector, who is about to get a light saber. We can see the back of the pouch that Xena is in, but the tape on the other side isn't visible, even though it is a transparent pouch.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: In 'Time and Punishment,' Homer goes back in time, then returns, and the kitchen table has plates of food, cutlery and glasses all set out. Then when Homer is informed that Ned is the Lord of the Universe, the house starts shaking, but you can see the table is now totally clear. (00:11:15)

Homerpalooza - S7-E24

Continuity mistake: When Homer is on stage in Springfield and preparing to get hit by the cannonball, the speaker-tower, behind and slightly to the left of him, completely disappears in the wide shot right before Homer jumps off stage.

Mommie Beerest - S16-E7

Continuity mistake: When Marge arrives home complaining that she is too tired to talk, there is an alarm clock on Homer's night table. When first shown it is a black electric clock, but when it is shown in the very next scene, it is an old orange one. Only a few seconds passed between these scenes, meaning there was no time for anyone to change it.

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!

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
