Eight Misbehavin' - S11-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Homer and Apu rescues the babies, Maggie is first seen wearing a bow. Then, when she's next seen, it's gone. When we see her one more time, the bow is back.

Much Apu About Nothing - S7-E23

Plot hole: At the end Apu finds out he's been chosen for jury duty for the first time. However, in 'The Boy Who Knew Too Much' he was on the jury.

Krusty Gets Busted - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: In the initial robbery at the Kwik-E-Mart, Apu doesn't realise what's going on until the fake Krusty demands the money from him. Yet in the video shown in court, he turns to face the fake Krusty right as Homer screams.

Marge Simpson in 'Screaming Yellow Honkers' - S10-E15

Deliberate mistake: When Marge goes offroading to get home there is a grassy field which leads right up into the Simpson driveway. However, in all other episodes there is no grassy field and instead there is a house in the spot where the field would be.

Tobin OReilly

Lady Bouvier's Lover - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When the person delivers the animation cell, his skin changes from white, to brown and then back to white. When Bart looks through the letterbox to see who was there, his skin is white. When he gives the box to Bart, it is brown. When he hits Bart in the face and says "that's for keeping me waiting", it is white again.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Audio problem: When the drunks find out they're going to Hawaii, one of them says "Maybe I'll marry Elizabeth Taylor." If you look at their mouths, though, they don't move right. (00:09:50)

Yoshi

Flaming Moe's - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: At the bar, we see Mrs. Krabappel, and she disappears for the rest of the scene. (00:13:40)

Yoshi

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When the mobsters enter Skinner's office, the phone on his desk changes position between shots. Also, the name bar on his desk doesn't read anything on it. (00:13:50)

Yoshi

Three Men and a Comic Book - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: When Bart, Martin and Milhouse start to fight, the Radioactiveman issue 1 that they were protecting has disappeared from the table. Then when Marge brings up some food, they all start eating. The table has disappeared altogether.

Principal Charming - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: In the shot of Skinner admiring his tater tots, he is interrupted and lifts up his tray. As he inspects he tilts his tray to at least a 90 degree angle but everything, including the milk, stays in exactly the same spots.

Yoshi

Homer's Phobia - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: John is wearing Homer's old "Pin-pals" bowling shirt when the Simpsons first meet him, but only after we see the back of the shirt does the name "Homer" appear over John's breast-pocket; clearly there was nothing there during their entire previous conversation. And even if this is a deliberate "mistake" for comic purposes, in 7th season episode"Team Homer", the very same bowling shirt is ripped to shreds when Homer is being mauled by Mr.Burns' dogs at the very end.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Audio problem: In the opening when Marge is warning us about how bad this years episode is, her mouth barely matches what she says.

Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When all the kids are watching TV, we see Wendell, Martin and Milhouse. Absurdly they appear to be right below the ceiling in this shot - when in every other shot they are sitting on the sofa or standing.
