The Simpsons

The Boy Who Knew Too Much - S5-E20

Factual error: Apu (an immigrant from India) could not have been selected for the jury because he is not an American citizen, and this was before he became a naturalized citizen in "Much Apu About Nothing".

Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: Before Bart notices the lemon behind the lemon-shaped rock there is actually no lemon there. We can later see that there is too much of a significant gap between these two objects for the lemon to be hiding behind the rock.

Burns' Heir - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: Hans Moleman has brown skin at the beginning of the episode and yellow skin at the end.

Dr Wilson

Brother From the Same Planet - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Homer is showing Pepi the garage, it is purple. In the main titles and in every other episode, it is an orangey colour.

Homie the Clown - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: Just before Homer (dressed as Krusty) is picked up by Officer Wiggum, his car is brightly painted and has wobbly clown wheels. When he pulls over it's back to the ordinary dented purple car he usually drives.

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: As Homer and Marge are singing in the car, there is one exterior shot of the car, showing it is yellow, but the rest of the scene it is green. (00:05:55)

Yoshi

Saturdays of Thunder - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Homer helps Bart with his racer, the wall of the inside of the garage keeps changing from blue to red. (00:11:45)

Yoshi

The Otto Show - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Skinner is calmly driving the bus on the way to school, they have obviously gone past a number of power lines (you can see that they have because you can see them in the background). However, when Skinner is trying to get onto the main road, the power lines have disappered from the background. (00:12:45)

Season 19 generally

Factual error: In the episode with Donny, when Bart sees principle Skinner go into the school to meet with the rat, the door is backwards. The bars that are pushed in to open a door are always on the inside.

Jack Kaltenbach

D'oh-in' in the Wind - S10-E6

Audio problem: In the beginning, we are at the power plant. We find out that Burns has packed his own lunch, and one thing he packed is a bullion cube. His mouth doesn't move right when he says "Bullion cube".

Tree House of Horror XI - S12-E1

Continuity mistake: In Reaper madness, there's a scene which Homer wakes up being the grim reaper, he puts the robe on at which point he is wearing a singlet. In the next scene where God turns Homer back to his regular self he is wearing his white shirt.

Bart's Dog Gets an F - S2-E16

Audio problem: When Bart's dog is chewing on the TV remote, one of the shots on it is of "I Can't Believe They Invented It." with Troy McClure as the host. This is exactly the same shot from "Homer vs Lisa and the 8th Commandment". You can tell because Troy's voice is different. The lip sync is also out, revealing that the line "As an actor, my eyeballs need to look their whitest" is dubbed in.

OL1V3R666

Fat Man and Little Boy - S16-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lou and Eddie, the police officers, take Bart's shirts, they both have blue shirts on top, then when the shot changes, one of them has an orange shirt on top. (00:07:40)

Chaz1003

Sleeping with the Enemy - S16-E3

Continuity mistake: At the start when Homer is wearing the sweater, when Bart comes in with his test, we see it disappears for one shot, and is then back. (00:02:30)

Chaz1003

Sleeping with the Enemy - S16-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is talking to Homer at the start, we see that Homer puts his Duff down on the table, yet for the rest of the scene it isn't there. (00:01:15)

Chaz1003

Treehouse of Horror XV - S16-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lisa goes to see Comic Book Guy, we see that he places the dagger on the table in the centre of the green thing, then when the shot changes and he puts the comic there the dagger is gone. (00:09:45)

Chaz1003

The Parent Rap - S13-E2

Continuity mistake: When Homer is sleeping on Bart's school floor, Bart puts his shoe in Homer's mouth. Later, when Homer is screaming about "Cobras," the shoe has been coloured black, rather than the usual blue.

David Mercier

Lisa the Vegetarian - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lisa knocks the lamb chop out of Bart's mouth to Homer's it changes colour during the journey.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: When The collector falls over the banister and into the Lucite, Xena is taped into a plastic pouch; but when she gets out, she pulls the bag down easily, without ripping open the bag or the tape.

Today, I am a Klown - S15-E6

Continuity mistake: While Krusty is describing his prostate to the children, the green umbrella vanishes from beside Lisa. (00:07:40)
