E-I-E-I-(Annoyed Grunt) - S11-E5

Revealing mistake: After Lisa says "For a product that's evil and deadly" while standing in front of the tomacco stand, there's a duplicate Lisa behind her that stands still while she moves, giving Lisa the appearance of having two heads.

doh

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Plot hole: In "Life's a Glitch", Lisa finds out that she has a seat on the spacecraft going to Mars as the proofreader. How, though, was she not informed of this before going to the rocket? The family only finds out about the rocket after finding Krusty's letter/invitation and the fact that she was on the list there would be no reason why she wouldn't have been informed of this. It was still New Year's Day so if it had been by mail then it would have to arrive before the New Year so as to make the plan work, being as it was a public holiday and no mail would be delivered. Therefore it would have to be delivered personally or someone would need to contact her. There were also many well known celebrities and figures ready to board the rocket. I can't imagine they were all home in time to gather their mail and were all somehow contacted, yet Lisa was simply walking around town and at church and they couldn't find her? There was also no evidence to suggest anything would have stopped her from either receiving the invitation in time or being informed of the mission.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Character mistake: When the Collector is putting Lucy Lawless into her plastic bag in his lair with the other celebrities, he refers to Tom Baker as "Doctor Who." As a sci-fi nerd, he would know the character's name is simply "The Doctor."

Nikolai

Faith Off - S11-E11

Nikolai

Faith Off - S11-E11

Continuity mistake: Homer was wearing a knit cap when the bucket fell on his head, but didn't have it when the bucket was removed. And since he was wearing a knit cap when the bucket fell on his head, his hair shouldn't have been ripped off when the bucket was removed.

Grift of the Magi - S11-E9

Continuity mistake: In the dinner scene at the end, Maggie is not wearing a bow, but when everyone tells Moe "Merry Christmas", she has her bow on.

Nikolai
