Some Enchanted Evening - S1-E13

Bart's Comet - S6-E14

Revealing mistake: In the scene where the family is in the car, driving home from The Town hall meeting, Homer says "the whole reason we have elected officials is so we don't have to think all the time!" When he says "don't" a second collar appears beneath the right collar of his shirt, and then disappears after he says "time." (00:11:20)

Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind - S19-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Homer says "I'm a genius", Krusty is seen with yellow skin, but is later seen with his usual white skin.

Continuity mistake: When Marge enters "Your home from space" the address is still http://www.google.com, then the shot changes to Marge outside and then shows the computer again where the address is now http://yourhomefromspace.com.

Continuity mistake: Right before the Itchy and Scratchy Show episode starts, Santa's Little Helper is colored in a much darker shade of brown than usual.

Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy - S5-E14

Revealing mistake: When Lisa says "Now all we need is a name", Maggie's head disappears for a split second right before the shot changes to Bart talking.

Nikolai

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Other mistake: When Lisa rings Homer to tell him that she loves him, the shot of her talking is re-used from "Bart's Dog Gets an F." We can tell this because her cheeks inexplicably appear puffed up (in "Bart's Dog Gets an F" she had mumps).

Mr Top Hat

When You Dish Upon a Star - S10-E5

Revealing mistake: At court, as Homer is walking towards Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger and Ron Howard, Bart is in the background sitting with the rest of the Simpsons, but his head is missing from his body. His head then reappears back on his body after about 2 seconds.

Treehouse of Horror XVIII - S19-E5

Factual error: In the Mr. And Mrs. Simpson segment Homer is firing a minigun at Marge and three of the barrels are seen spitting fire. A minigun however only uses one barrel at a time to fire.

[The Simpsons are driving down a road as fast as possible.]
Homer: Dear God, it's Homer. If you really love me you'll save my life now.
