Other mistake: When the Simpsons' drives the electaurus off the edge of the harbour, it is shown that the front of the car goes downwards. When it cuts to the interior view with the Simpsons' screaming, the view from the back window is tilting down, suggesting the rear is going down and the front coming up. But in the next shot the car is seen in the water with the front down.
Continuity mistake: When Homer and Sideshow Bob are chasing the mechanic on stilts, the mechanic tries to get away, and his cape falls off while he is being chased. In the next shot, we see a close-up of the mechanic, and you can see his red cape is back on again. Then in the next shot, we see Homer and Bob chasing him, and his cape is off.
Continuity mistake: In the very beginning of the episode, Bart places Santa's Little Helper's dish into the sink and begins playing with the faucets. Marge comes in, and the bowl magically disappears from the sink and it's missing for the rest of the scene.
