Continuity mistake: When Homer sits down in the movie theater, all the rows are completely full, including the row behind him. When he turns around to talk to Selma, the seats directly behind him are empty. Then, when Homer turns back to the screen, the Sea Captain and Dr. Hibbert appear sitting directly behind him.
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.
Continuity mistake: In the very beginning of the episode, Bart places Santa's Little Helper's dish into the sink and begins playing with the faucets. Marge comes in, and the bowl magically disappears from the sink and it's missing for the rest of the scene.
Continuity mistake: When Bart and Lisa are trying to win back Homer's affection they are sitting on the top of the stairs and push the skateboard with the present on it down the stairs. In the next shot it rolls into Homer's legs yet it would be impossible as he was standing in the main living room which is to the right of the stairs. Pushing the present down the stairs it would go straight into the front door.
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.
Continuity mistake: Before Homer sees his vision of Caesar Romero the day sign next to him says 9. After the Duff executives see him talking to nobody they decide to take him away and when they get down there the sign now says 12 with the president of Duff confirming it in his speech. Doubtful it took them 3 days to get down to him and not much reason for Homer to take 3 days off the sign seeing as he was almost passing out from the lack of food.
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.
Continuity mistake: There are two problems with Lisa's Indian burns. When we first see them, she has 4 burns. Then, while she is showing them to the bullies, there are 3, then 4 again. Then, in the very next scene when she is walking with Nelson in the schoolyard, they are gone altogether.
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.
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.
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.

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is watching tapes of Francine's bullying, there is a scene where they are at the pool. Francine is wearing nose clips in this scene. But when Lisa freeze-frames and leans in to closer inspect the shot, Francine's face is shown on the screen without nose clips. They appear again when Lisa exclaims "Of course. The nose clips."
Audio problem: In the scene where Lisa is presenting her bully repellant at the 'Big Science Thing', when she first walks onstage there are murmurs of disapproval among the scientists, in which you can hear one of them saying, "Let's not listen". But after Lisa sprays the repellant on herself and stops Francine in her tracks, the scientists start murmuring in astonishment. However, if you listen closely, you'll hear the same recording of someone saying, "Let's not listen".
Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are on the raft going down the river in Africa they come to a fork and have a choice of going to the left, towards a sunny and nicer area or to the right where it is rainy and gloomy. As Homer tries to steer the raft to the left as he pulls his left arm out of the water and it is covered in leeches but in the next shot of him when we see the arm again the leeches are gone. No way to remove leeches that fast.

Continuity mistake: When the citizens are leaving the park in disappointment, Manjula walks past the screen and has yellow skin, light brown hair and is wearing a blue dress. In the next shot she is back to her normal skin color and is wearing her usual pink dress.
Continuity mistake: During Lisa's and Bart's segment, time seems to run really quickly. When Lisa leaves West Springfield Elementary it is 11:00 and when she gets to Moe's it is noon, then a few minutes later it is 2:50. When Bart and Milhouse find Fat Tony it is noon, then when Bart gets hit by the truck, it is almost 3:00.
