The Simpsons

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Other mistake: Lanley's desk in his trailer suddenly gets brighter even though none of the lights in the trailer were turned on.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Cobb's hair in North Haverbrook changes length between shots.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When celebrities are coming to ride the monorail, the positions of people in the crowd changes positions between shots.

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Plot hole: At the theatre in the "King Homer" bit, the audience are treated to a traditional showgirl spectacle. But the girls have no curtain behind them, and so the audience should have seen Homer the ape, but they act completely surprised a minute later when Homer comes on.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: At the end, Homer and Lisa don't cast a reflection on the Kwik-E-Mart's doors. They should, since they are only a few metres from it.

Wild Barts Can't Be Broken - S10-E11

Continuity mistake: When Homer enters the bar, you briefly see that Lenny has dark green braces and a fawn coloured shirt. The next shot, they switch colours.

Wild Barts Can't Be Broken - S10-E11

Continuity mistake: At one point, Lisa and Bart are watching fireflies through the window. When Homer comes in, the fireflies are gone.

Wild Barts Can't Be Broken - S10-E11

Audio problem: When Lisa is broadcasting secrets about Springfield residents in a British accent, her lips don't match her mouth at all.

Sunday, Cruddy Sunday - S10-E12

Continuity mistake: When Homer gets the coupon book, look at the plant on the wall. It changes position between shots.

Sunday, Cruddy Sunday - S10-E12

Continuity mistake: The desk in the car repair shop behind Homer changes positions between shots.

Mayored to the Mob - S10-E9

Audio problem: At the end where Homer is carrying Mark Hamill out of the theatre, Mark's lips don't match with what he's saying.

When You Dish Upon a Star - S10-E5

Revealing mistake: When Homer and the family are having hamburgers at the dinner table, at one point you can see the oven. The pointer on one of the dials is misaligned.

Das Bus - S9-E14

Revealing mistake: When Skinner talks to Otto on the bus, the point of his hair is touching a pole. Look at the pole - Skinner's hair is going through it.

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: When Cooder comes out of the house to witness Homer throwing the ring onto the chimney, there's a doorbell on the side of the doorway. The next shot, it's disappeared.

The Joy of Sect - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: When Homer is fishing, the colours of the things on his hat switch places between shots.

The Joy of Sect - S9-E13

Plot hole: When the group are watching the brainwashing video, you can see Burns in the audience. Why is he there? He wasn't brainwashed with the rest of the group as we saw later in the episode. Later, he just disappears from The Front row.

The Joy of Sect - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: When Frink collapses at the table, his sleeves are green. When it cuts to a wide shot, they are yellow.

The Joy of Sect - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: When Bart and Lisa are in the compound, just before Bart gets brainwashed, the bags that were behind Lisa disappear. Homer and Marge were on the other side of the room, so they couldn't have picked them up.

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Factual error: Sharks cannot just reverse backwards like that one did under the glass bottom boat. The only way sharks can go backwards is either swimming around in a circle or allowing the current to carry them.

Lisa's Sax - S9-E3

Plot hole: In this episode, Homer repeatedly says that they have no air-con or thermostat, but we saw that they had a thermostat in the first clip show episode. What happened to it?

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

[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.
[The gas needle immediately drops to empty and the car stops.]
Homer: D'oh.
