The Lastest Gun in the West - S13-E12

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, the dog eats Bart's clothes through the letterbox, but a minute later, when the dog next comes to the house and Homer opens the door, there is no letterbox.

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)
