The Simpsons

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the new opening sequence, Kearney and Dolph cut off Jebbidah's head. But in the pan of the city, the head is back.

Jason Voorhees

Eeny Teeny Maya Moe - S20-E16

Continuity mistake: As Marge is feeding Maggie a grapefruit, Bart takes out his bongo drums and plays them. Watch as Bart plays - the shot zooms in from the back of Bart towards Maggie, and you can't see Marge in the scene sitting close to Maggie; the next shot shows her though.

RLN

The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons - S9-E7

Continuity mistake: The amount of liquified chips in the bag at the home changes depending on the shot.

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.

Nikolai

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.

Worst Episode Ever - S12-E11

Continuity mistake: When Comic Book Guy turns off the water hydrant, the two boys in purple and blue trunks change position between shots.

Neil Jones

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.
