Beyond Blunderdome - S11-E1

Revealing mistake: When Homer is giving Marge, Lisa and Bart money, Homer puts his hand on Bart's shoulder and whispers 'Mel's movie really stinks'. When he lets go of Bart to say this, he leaves his fingers on Bart's shoulder, but he still has fingers on his hand.

Beyond Blunderdome - S11-E1

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.

Beyond Blunderdome - S11-E1

Continuity mistake: The "dummy" in the episode changes consistently from a real character to a dummy sometimes. When Mel jumps into the vehicle in the museum the "dummy" moves aside. When Mel shoves it out of the way, it stays in one rigid position as if it is a dummy. During the chase, the "dummy" falls on the car behind and its facial expression changes. But when one of the guys from THAT car (not the one Mel was in) goes to the dummy, its head is ripped off and you can see that it is stuffed.

Beyond Blunderdome - S11-E1

Continuity mistake: The text on the billboard which says "She's having a baby...again!" is black when Mel Gibson and Homer crash through it. After they have landed on the ground, the text on the billboard is white.

Brother's Little Helper - S11-E2

Continuity mistake: When Homer and Marge are in the research lab, the scientist pulls off a white cloth which is covering the hamster tank and places a tube next to it, but in the next shot it's gone. (00:04:55)

Brother's Little Helper - S11-E2

Audio problem: Homer's mouth is out of sync when he's naming celebrities who use drugs.

Nikolai

Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: When all the people who are plotting to murder Homer are talking about the reviews Homer had given them, Akira says, "So why did you put yours in the window?" and you see the review. At the end of that scene, when they are all laughing, you see the building they are in, and it has nothing in the window.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: The broken railing in front of Lucy Lawless returns to normal when the shot changes after the Collector lands on the computer.

Dan Moat

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In "Desperately Xeeking Xena", as Lucy Lawless grabs the lips of the Collector, you can see a big "C" on the back of his cape. After she has thrown him across the room and he gets up, the "C" is gone. It reappears later in the fight.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: When The Simpsons go home they find the words 'I know what You Did' on their door, written in blood. Then another shot after, you can see the door with nothing on it.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Audio problem: In "Desperately Xeeking Xena", Xena is put in a plastic pouch. Wouldn't her voice sound muffled?

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Other mistake: In "Desperately Xeeking Xena", at one point she approaches the Collector, who is about to get a light saber. We can see the back of the pouch that Xena is in, but the tape on the other side isn't visible, even though it is a transparent pouch.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In the 'I know what you did-diddly-did' story, the Simpsons car keeps changing from dark purple to the normal pink colour.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In the flashback, the car moves a lot further than it did originally after hitting Ned.

Dan Moat

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: When The collector falls over the banister and into the Lucite, Xena is taped into a plastic pouch; but when she gets out, she pulls the bag down easily, without ripping open the bag or the tape.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: When Marge hits Ned Flanders, she pulls over, in the middle of the road. But When they go to see who they've hit, and when Homer picks Ned up and 'talks' to him, the car has disappeared from the road.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: While the Simpsons are standing in the line, waiting to enter the rocket to Mars, you can see Professor Frink wearing a white shirt. However when he enters the lift to the rocket, he has a green shirt on.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: When the flashback of running over Ned happens his jumper is ripped and sleeveless because he has just been a wolf. Earlier though when the Simpsons find him, his jumper is not ripped.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In "I Know What You Diddly-Iddly Did", there are a few errors: Homer says, "Guess I forgot to put the fog lights in" at a slightly higher pitch to when we heard him say it earlier (When the event actually happened). When Marge actually ran over Ned she did not carry on driving. The flashback shows that Ned was run over without glasses. However in the actual event he had glasses on.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In "I Know What You Diddly-Iddly Did", just after Ned has been run over, he turns from a werewolf into his normal self. If you look carefully, his left ear turns brown for a second before turning yellow again.

[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.
