The Simpsons

Simpson Safari - S12-E17

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are on the raft going down the river in Africa they come to a fork and have a choice of going to the left, towards a sunny and nicer area or to the right where it is rainy and gloomy. As Homer tries to steer the raft to the left as he pulls his left arm out of the water and it is covered in leeches but in the next shot of him when we see the arm again the leeches are gone. No way to remove leeches that fast.

Tobin OReilly

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Character mistake: When the Collector is putting Lucy Lawless into her plastic bag in his lair with the other celebrities, he refers to Tom Baker as "Doctor Who." As a sci-fi nerd, he would know the character's name is simply "The Doctor."

Audio problem: When Martin runs with his book when Kirk Van Houten says to Otto "It's for my kid." he shouts "Eureka!" but his mouth says something completely different.

Bart vs. Thanksgiving - S2-E7

Other mistake: In the DVD booklet, two errors are made for this episode. The booklet says Homer accuses Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and Bart was jealous of Lisa's centre piece. These are both incorrect: First, it wasn't Homer who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving, it was Marge who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and second, at no point throughout the episode was Bart ever jealous of Lisa's centre piece.

Bart's Inner Child - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer and Marge are in bed Marge moves up and we can see she isn't wearing anything, but in the close up you can see that she is wearing her pyjamas - note the thing around her neck, then it's back to nothing.

Kane A R

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: After the slinky leaves Moe's hands, and goes out of Maggie's room, we see that Maggie's toy phone is right next to the door way, then when the camera goes towards Moe, and Maggie, then we see the toy phone next to Moe and Maggie.

Continuity mistake: When Barney becomes his old self again at the training center, he gets on a jetpack while holding a bottle. In the next shot while he is in the air, the bottle is gone.

Little Orphan Millie - S19-E6

Continuity mistake: When the school bus drops off Bart and Milhouse at the Simpson house, Bart puts his backpack on frontwards and starts krumping. When he walks through The Front door, he is still wearing his backpack on his front. It then cuts to inside the house, and we still see him coming through the door, but the backpack is gone.

Little Orphan Millie - S19-E6

Continuity mistake: When the men from Festival Cruise Lines arrive at the Simpson house, they park in the left-hand lane (closest to the house) with the car facing oncoming traffic, seen both when they first pull up and, more, in the background while informing Milhouse about his parents. But in the overhead shot of the house, the car is parked the other way around, following the direction of traffic.

Radioactive Man - S7-E2

Plot hole: The director of Radioactive Man says to Bart "we found our new Fall Out Boy. That's what I would say if you weren't an inch too short. NEXT!" But Milhouse is the new Fall Out Boy, and he's blatantly smaller than Bart. Bart was standing right next to Milhouse, so the director could see the difference.
