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.

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.

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.

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

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.
