The Simpsons Christmas Special: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: After Homer brings Santa's Little Helper home, Homer and Marge hug, and if you look behind them, the background is upside down. There is a picture hanging upside down, and there is a lamp which seems to be hanging from the ceiling. Then in the next shot, the background is normal. (00:21:40)

The Simpsons Christmas Special: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Marge is speaking on the phone to her sisters, her sisters say something that sounds like they said that Homer is ugly. Marge then puts down the phone wire that she was curling round her finger. You can temporarily see that the phone wire disappears when Marge puts it down. It is at the very end of an early scene, because as soon as this happens it changes to another scene. (00:04:40)

The Call of the Simpsons - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: The scientist who describes Homer as a brilliant beast seems to have some of his hair magically floating above his ear - it's not connected to his head, yet it moves alongside his head. (00:20:40)

Homer's Night Out - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Bart makes a copy of his photo for Lewis, footage of Milhouse inserting a coin into the copy machine is used. You can see Milhouse's pink shirt sleeve instead of Bart's orange shirt sleeve. This same shot is again reused a third time seconds later. (00:09:55)

Revealing mistake: When Barney says "How long will the story take?" after Bart offers to tell the mob his story, the upper half of Barney's face starting from his nose is a darker shade of yellow than his lower half. His shirt also changes colour. (00:01:40)

The Telltale Head - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: In the beginning, when the angry mob is chasing after Homer and Bart, there are two Dr Marvin Monroes. One of them is behind Mrs Krabappel and the other is next to Grampa Simpson. (00:01:40)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Question: Chief Wiggum says that Space Invaders was an addictive video game, and Groundskeeper Willie says, "Video game?" I don't understand why he is so shocked. Could someone help please?

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
