Homer vs. Dignity - S12-E5

Plot hole: In the last part of the episode, when Mr Burns is trying to convince Homer on his float to play a big prank, the timing is totally wrong. Firstly, Lisa sees the writing 'Happy Pranksgiving' on the side of Mr Burns' float way before it reaches her, and it takes Mr Burns ages to change into the Father Christmas outfit.

Homer vs. Dignity - S12-E5

Deliberate mistake: The mouth on the panda costume is in a constant smile and at no point does Homer change it, even when he is in pain. However, when he is being pulled back under the curtain the mouth is open and the mask has a frightened expression. I suppose this was done on purpose, but it's still a continuity error of sorts.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: When the hamster Nibbles has rolled back to Skinner, it takes the lid of the ball off, and the lid lands on the ground. When the hamster is rolling away from Skinner it doesn't put the lid back on, it just leaves it on the ground, but in the next shot the lid is suddenly gone.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Factual error: Superintendents are the ones who decide whether or not schools should be closed for snow days, not school principals.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: When the children are sleeping in the canteen at school, Bart is resting his head on a red sweater. In the close up of him and Lisa, the sweater has now turned dark green. It's not because of the dark that we see it like that because there is a bit of light at the beginning of the next shot and we see the jumper to be dark green.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Audio problem: When Principal Skinner is watching the kids throw the books in the fire, someone goes to throw Huckleberry Finn into the fire. He says "Not Huck Finn. I spent hours crossing out the sass-back." While he says this, his lips don't sync with the words.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: When the Hamster rolls through the glass of Flanders car it breaks it near the bottom middle of the front windshield. Later on when Flanders and Homer are taking the kids home you can see the break in the glass has now moved to about halfway up the front windshield. On of the following shots it moves back to its original position and then moves back to being around the middle of the windshield.
