The Simpsons

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: There are two problems with Lisa's Indian burns. When we first see them, she has 4 burns. Then, while she is showing them to the bullies, there are 3, then 4 again. Then, in the very next scene when she is walking with Nelson in the schoolyard, they are gone altogether.

The Fat and the Furriest - S15-E5

Factual error: Homer creates a giant sugar ball by making a normal sized cotton candy on a paper cone, and then coating it with liquid caramel. The cotton candy holds its shape and Homer continues to expand it with more cotton candy and caramel. However, cotton candy dissolves very quickly and tears apart easily. Between the weight and moisture content of the caramel, the original cotton candy would have immediately melted and/or collapsed.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Audio problem: When Principal Skinner is watching the kids throw the books in the fire, someone goes to throw Huckleberry Finn into the fire. He says "Not Huck Finn. I spent hours crossing out the sass-back." While he says this, his lips don't sync with the words.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When we see Skinner's car before the newspapers fall on him, it is a light-brownish color. When the police arrive, it is the same color as the cop cars.



The Secret War of Lisa Simpson - S8-E25

Continuity mistake: The vehicle they are driving changes form when they drop off Bart at military school to when they drive home. They leave with Homer's purple car (obvious from the crumpled headlight) and as they leave the military school it's Marge's orange car (obvious from the ski racks and lack of a trunk). It's clear from the entire scene that this is all one trip.

The Trouble With Trillions - S9-E20

Continuity mistake: When Homer is watching TV early in the episode, he has a watch on his left wrist. When he begins working on filling out his tax forms, the watch has disappeared. When he takes down the sailboat painting from the wall, the watch has returned.

Dancin' Homer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the Capital City number, where the car comes towards camera before they shout "Capital City, yeah", watch Marge's dress. It's green as the car approaches, but as soon as it parks, it turns red, right before your eyes.

Bart vs. Lisa vs. the Third Grade - S14-E3

Continuity mistake: When we first see Willie standing by the Black Wall of field trips, the latest entry is at Willie's eye level. But when the angle changes, there are a lot more names on the wall, making the last entry appear just by Willie's chest.

Add time


The Parent Rap - S13-E2

Continuity mistake: The stocks that are put on Marge and Homer are fitted so that their head and hands are secured and cannot be removed. Whilst in Flanders garage and Homer is using the rotary saw to remove Marge's stock, Homer's stock is still secured on him but his arms and shoulders are through the stocks.
