The Simpsons

The Great Louse Detective - S14-E6

Continuity mistake: When Homer and Sideshow Bob are chasing the mechanic on stilts, the mechanic tries to get away, and his cape falls off while he is being chased. In the next shot, we see a close-up of the mechanic, and you can see his red cape is back on again. Then in the next shot, we see Homer and Bob chasing him, and his cape is off.

Mr. Spritz Goes to Washington - S14-E14

Audio problem: At the end of the episode, when the guy who helped the Simpsons pass the bill says, "I just passed a bill in three hours. Quit complaining," his mouth movements don't match the words.

The Bart of War - S14-E21

Continuity mistake: After Kirk (Milhouse's dad) drives away from the stadium, Bart and Homer are walking along and you can see the Drink Duff sign right next to the edge of the fence. The next shot of Homer noticing the sign, the sign is further away from the edge of the fence and is smaller.

Scuse Me While I Miss the Sky - S14-E16

Other mistake: Bart and Lisa overload the nuclear power plant to create a city-wide blackout so everyone can see the meteor shower. All the lights in Springfield blow out. Yet when we see the Simpsons sitting on their lawn watching the shower, every single window in their house is yellow, as if every room has their lights on. It is the only house shown with power.

Scuse Me While I Miss the Sky - S14-E16

Audio problem: In Declan Desmond's film of Springfield Elementary shown at the end, Kearney and Dolph start beating Jimbo up. After Kearney says "Sellout," he says "Yuppie" in Dolph's voice. Then Dolph says "Soccer Mom" but in Kearney's voice.

Dude, Where's My Ranch? - S14-E18

Audio problem: When Bart gets the beavers to knock down the tree so that Clara can walk across, she gets onto it and starts walking gently. But when she walks gently, it sounds like she's walking quickly across the trunk.

Special Edna (a.k.a. Love and Marking) - S14-E7

Deliberate mistake: When Bart and Edna are watching "Holes" in the IMAX theater, Edna sighs and pulls out a locket which we can see the back of. After opening it up to reveal pictures of her and Seymour, we find out its actually a triptych when she opens up another image of Seymour's mother. From the way she unfolds this extra picture, Seymour's mother would have had to be facing outwards, but in the previous shot the back of the locket was blank.
