Homer vs. Patty and Selma - S6-E17

Other mistake: When Homer burns a dollar bill, he turns his cigar around 180 degrees. If you look carefully, the smoke soon comes from the different side than it did earlier.

Simpsons Bible Stories - S10-E18

Continuity mistake: Homer as Solomon cuts the pie into a roughly 1/3 and a 2/3 piece, but when he picks the pieces up, it's more or less halved.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end of 'The Shining, ' the family sits in the snow, Homer holding Willie's portable TV. Later, when they're frozen, Homer is holding nothing, although the TV's snow-topped antenna is still there. Additionally, Homer's left shoulder is missing. This is all due to the lack of correct colorization.

E-I-E-I-(Annoyed Grunt) - S11-E5

Revealing mistake: After Lisa says "For a product that's evil and deadly" while standing in front of the tomacco stand, there's a duplicate Lisa behind her that stands still while she moves, giving Lisa the appearance of having two heads. It looks like the animators made a mistake while trying to animate Lisa.

Springfield Up - S18-E13

Other mistake: When Homer is being interviewed while feeding baby Lisa, there's a picture of 8 year old Lisa in the background.

They Saved Lisa's Brain - S10-E22

Character mistake: The plural form of ignoramus is ignoramuses, not ignorami. The word "ignoramus," a Latin verb-form meaning "we do not know," has no Latin plural-noun form. Therefore, when used as an English noun it correctly pluralizes as "ignoramuses." Someone as smart as Lisa should know this.

Boy Meets Curl - S21-E12

Plot hole: Marge pops her shoulder out of place curling. Yet in the next scene she's seen with a wrist cast. (01:15:30 - 01:16:15)

The Color Yellow - S21-E13

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Burns is confronting Homer about his missing slave, Homer's donut is half eaten. During the next scene the donut has a smaller bite taken out of it. (00:14:00)

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Character mistake: Lisa states that Pierre and Marie Curie both died of radiation poisoning. This is incorrect, as only Marie died of radiation poisoning while her husband Pierre was killed by a horse and cart.

This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: When the family are on the conveyer belt at the beginning the family are travelling along. In the next shot (the close up) they are travelling alot slower.

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons drive up to the house, there are no boards on the window. When they can't get in, suddenly there are boards on the windows.

Treehouse of Horror XV - S16-E1

Continuity mistake: When Maggie crawls out of the stroller and into the capsule, the stroller has no harness, but when Marge sees the empty stroller, there is a harness.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Factual error: When Chief Wiggum opens the revolver's chamber, there's 5 rounds with one open slot. In the next shot, we see the reverse end of the chamber and it's drawn in such a way to indicate those 5 rounds all have bullets in them still, meaning the empty slot is from when Maggie shot Mr. Burns. But revolvers don't eject spent shells automatically and no one handled the gun after it dropped on the floor. So the empty casing should have still been in there when Wiggum opens it up for the first time.

How Lisa Got Her Marge Back - S27-E18

Continuity mistake: The pictures of the celebrities behind Lisa and Andrew Rannels change position depending on the whether scene is focusing on Lisa or Andrew.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Character mistake: Willie says he got arthritis from playing Space Invaders in 1977. However, Space Invaders didn't come out until 1978.

Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Marge is standing outside the Kwik-E-Mart, she is holding some papers with a picture of Mary Bailey and the words "Re-Elect Bailey." But in a long shot of Marge in the next shot, the papers she is holding in her right arm are now completely blank.

Some Enchanted Evening - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Ms Botz is leading Bart, Lisa and Maggie to the living room, the video she is carrying in her hand is brown. In the next shot, it is now blue, and when she is talking to Bart, it is brown again.

Tree House of Horror VII - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: In Citizen Kang, when Homer bursts in at the Dole-Clinton Debate, you can see the wall behind him is light blue, but when we see a close-up of Homer, the wall is now brown.

Homer vs. Dignity - S12-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are at the restaurant at the start, Bart has no medal on his jacket. But when Lisa remarks a few seconds later that Homer gave Bart a medal, one has appeared on his jacket.
