Home Away From Homer - S16-E20

Continuity mistake: For "Home Away From Homer": Bart looks out his bedroom window and sees the college girls doing sexual actions in the Flanders' spare bedroom. But, there is never a window in Bart's room that could possibly face the Flanders' house. [Bart's window in many episodes does face Flander's house but in other episodes like "Bart's Friend Falls in Love" and "Bart the Mother" it faces the treehouse which is the backyard of the house.]

Homerpalooza - S7-E24

Continuity mistake: After Homer is shot with the cannon for the first time, the cannonball disappears from behind him.


On A Clear Day I Can't See My Sister - S16-E11

Continuity mistake: For "On a Clear Day, I Can't See My Sister": Throughout the episode, the backyard alternates between having a fence at the end and a forest at the end.

In Marge We Trust - S8-E22

Factual error: You wouldn't hear a dial tone on one side of the phone line if the phone on the other side was cut from the receiver. You wouldn't hear anything.

Lisa's First Word - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: In one scene Bart is swinging on a washing line then we see Homer talk to Marge and he says "He'll soon get tired of it" then it goes back to Bart and he is facing the opposite direction and he is swinging on two washing lines.

I, (Annoyed Grunt)-bot - S15-E9

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Other mistake: When Homer talks to Bart and Lisa through the window, he is standing almost straight up, but considering he is right in front of the TV in the next shot, he would've had to crouch down a little. (00:03:50)


Saturdays of Thunder - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Homer calls the Fatherhood Institute about his poor test results, the guy is holding a cup with 'Super Dad' on it. In the next three shots the cup has jumped to being on his desk. (00:08:50)


Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Audio problem: When Homer is crying after the tape is finished, what he says doesn't match his mouth. (00:07:25)


This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

The Boy Who Knew Too Much - S5-E20

Homer Alone - S3-E15

Audio problem: When Marge is running errands, Homer gives her his bowling ball with a bottle cap stuck in a hole. She then takes it to Nicks. When he says, "Sorry lady, you've got the wrong Nicks," he shakes his head and makes an "Ohh" shape with his mouth, not saying anything.
