Lisa the Vegetarian - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: When Maggie's dummy is spinning after the goat has taken her, the ground is clear. In the next close up shot there are tufts of grass and clumps of dirt there.

Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Bart and Lisa are watching TV, Bart says something like 'I've got my ticket' and pats a ticket that is inside his shirt pocket (which there is none). But later in that same scene when they are still watching TV, both the pocket and the ticket have gone. (00:12:20 - 00:14:15)

Homer the Great - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: As Homer is giving his speech to the dressed up monkeys, all of the monkeys are dressed in blue suits and you can also see there is one monkey next to the stairs on the stage. In the next shot of Homer leaving the stage there is now six monkeys, with only one wearing a suit and it is grey. (00:19:45)

Pygmoelian - S11-E16

Continuity mistake: When Moe is going to get a plastic surgery, the surgeon draws some marks on his face. You see Moe from a side view, and the marks on his face aren't visible from that angle. However, the marks on his face suddenly appear and you can now see them from that angle.

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.
