Suggested correction: No it is simply out of shot. There are 4 hooks on the lower half of the racks, in the second shot only 3 pegs are visible and we see Bart put his hat on the end peg.

This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: In the Wiggum's house the parent's bedroom changes style several times. When it is first seen the cupboard is opposite the door (When Chief Wiggum is looking into the room after climbing the stairs). Then it is on the wall running across from the doorway later when Chief Wiggum enters the room. When the Chief puts the Police Master key on his bed post the doorway is behind the bed and the bed is opposite the cupboard. Later when Bart steals the key the bed is seen parallel to the doorway.

This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: After Bart and Ralph have just visited the cake shop they have chocolate and icing all around their mouths. Also they are carrying the 'Newly Weds'. In the next shot where they walk around the corner the chocolate, icing and model bride and groom have all disappeared.

Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When Homer is sitting watching cable, the rest of the family comes home and one of them is carrying a plant in a pot, which is put down next to the couch. While they watch and watch cable, it grows very tall and then withers down. When Homer goes behind the TV and starts kissing the wires, the plant has moved to next to the doorway and is suddenly fully grown again.

Tree House of Horror VII - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: In 'The Thing and I' when Homer and Marge return from driving around in the rain, there is no doorknocker on the door. Then in the shot where Hugo escapes, we see the door open with red scratches on it, and there is a doorknocker. Then later when everyone leaves to find Hugo, it's gone again. (00:02:40 - 00:04:55)

When Flanders Failed - S3-E3

Character mistake: When Homer discovers that the Leftorium is going out of business, there is a sign that says 'Coming Soon: Gum for Less' beside the store. Later on, though, Ned says the new store is becoming 'Libertarian Party Headquarters.' (00:15:50 - 00:19:15)

Suggested correction: The sign is just an advertising poster that's on a wall. It's not in front of the leftorium.

Special Edna (a.k.a. Love and Marking) - S14-E7

Deliberate mistake: When Bart and Edna are watching "Holes" in the IMAX theater, Edna sighs and pulls out a locket which we can see the back of. After opening it up to reveal pictures of her and Seymour, we find out its actually a triptych when she opens up another image of Seymour's mother. From the way she unfolds this extra picture, Seymour's mother would have had to be facing outwards, but in the previous shot the back of the locket was blank.

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.
