The Simpsons (1989)

15 corrected entries in season 15

Margical History Tour - S15-E11

Corrected entry: In this episode, King Henry VIII executed five of his six wives. In real life, Henry only executed two, Anne Boleyn (his second wife)and Katherine Howard (his fifth wife).

Correction: The premise of this episode is that without books in the library, Marge is telling the kids the history stories. Marge either was just taught incorrectly or she doesn't know and made up a number that sounded reasonable.

Bishop73

Margical History Tour - S15-E11

Corrected entry: Jane Seymour is shown being beheaded. She actually died a couple weeks after giving birth to her son, Edward, from complications arising from the birth.

jle

Correction: The premise of this episode is that without books in the library, Marge tells the kids the history stories from her own recollection. Either Marge didn't know better or changed it, because a beheading makes a better story than just having complications.

Bishop73

Margical History Tour - S15-E11

Corrected entry: Salieri wasn't Mozart's brother - let alone his sister. Wouldn't Martin have been better as the jealous rival?

xx:xx:xx

jle

Correction: Yes. but Marge is telling the story and afterwards Lisa confronts her about the inaccuracies of her story.

MasterOfAll

Today, I am a Klown - S15-E6

Corrected entry: Why would Homer and Marge wait for the bathroom if they have one in their bedroom?

Dr Wilson

Correction: It could have been out of order.

The President Wore Pearls - S15-E3

Corrected entry: Isn't it a little off-character for Bart to be concerned about school?

Correction: No. He has run for school council president. He has buckled down and studied when faced with failing. He has ended a strike. He has worked to get Flanders fired as principal and Skinner reinstated. He cares about school.

The President Wore Pearls - S15-E3

Corrected entry: Krusty is shown to be a former school president at Springfield Elementary. But "Like Father, Like Clown" shows that he grew up in a Jewish community and attended a Hebrew school.

Correction: It is possible that children change schools at some point, even religious schools.

Andy Benham

Marge vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays - S15-E8

Corrected entry: The symbols on the teletubbies' heads are wrong. They did use the word 'teletubbies', so they're meant to be the same as the real world.

xx:xx:xx

jle

Correction: The symbols each represent the character, a spatula for Marge because Marge like to cook, a pitch fork for Bart because he is bad, a donut for Homer because he like donuts etc. It is a deliberate gag.

Fraudcast News - S15-E22

Corrected entry: When Burns buys KBBL and tells Bill and Marty they're fired, they take off their headphones but can still hear what Burns is saying when he asks for the toilet noise to be played.

Correction: The phone call might have been on speaker phone as well as being heard in their headphones. Even if it wasn't on speaker phone we can hear Mr Burns' voice as well so when they take their headphones off it's likely they could hear his voice as we could.

Lummie

Margical History Tour - S15-E11

Corrected entry: On the castle that King Henry VIII is supposed to live, you may notice the flags waving at the top. Most people probably know the flag of the U.K., but the animators have gotten the English flag wrong. They put a white cross on a blue background, but it should be a red cross on a white background.

Correction: The flag with a white cross on a blue background is the Scottish flag.

Smart and Smarter - S15-E13

Corrected entry: Lisa says her IQ is 159, but in "Homer's Enemy," we are told it's 156. Lisa hasn't aged in 15 years so it won't have changed. More likely to be writers not remembering what they have said before.

David Mercier

Correction: IQ measurement is not exact, and many factors, such as a person's environment, can affect how well one performs, intellectually speaking, though one's IQ usually hovers around a certain area of the scale. For Lisa to go from 159 to 156 is not unusual (a drop to, say, 136 would be much more cause for concern). She may just have had another test recently.

Xofer

The Way We Weren't - S15-E20

Corrected entry: Homer says Marge is the only woman he ever kissed. But he kissed Mindy Simmons earlier in the series.

Correction: Homer wouldn't want to bring that up with Marge.

I, (Annoyed Grunt)-bot - S15-E9

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the episode, Lisa calls Mr. Skinner "Principal Tanzarian". However, at the end of the episode "The Principal and the Pauper", Judge Schneider declares that anyone who ever mentions the fact that he's not the real Seymour Skinner ever again is to be punished... "by penalty of torture". May I do the honours, Judge?

Correction: Like for any crime, you're only punished if you're caught.

Today, I am a Klown - S15-E6

Corrected entry: Bart asks Lisa how she knows so much about the Talmud. She credits her imaginary Jewish friend. But Bart was with Lisa in episode 3-6: "Like Father, Like Clown," when she made an extensive study of ancient Jewish texts. So Bart shouldn't need to ask the question in the first place, and Lisa's answer is incorrect, or at least incomplete.

DavidK93

Correction: Yes Bart was with Lisa, BUT in Homers barbershop quartet, Bart says he can't remember what happened 8 seconds ago so he would have forgotten by then.

My Mother the Carjacker - S15-E2

Corrected entry: When Grandma Simpson is about to sign the first spot in the guestbook, the camera shows that the guestbook already has writings in it.

Correction: Those are just the lines to write your name on and such.

My Mother the Carjacker - S15-E2

Corrected entry: Throughout the episode, Chief Wiggum acts rather dilligently in his attempts to track down and capture Mona Simpson. But when Mona first appeared (7-8: Mother Simpson), Chief Wiggum was the one who tipped her off and enabled her to escape. He was grateful to Mona because her break-in at the germ warfare lab inadvertently cured his asthma.

DavidK93

Correction: When they first see her in the diner, the other officers are the ones to identify Mona and get Chief Wiggum involved. Chief Wiggum had to track her down, or it'd be questioned why he let her escape. He could "anonymously" tip her off in the first instance because the Springfield police never really got involved.

Homer: [buying a chewtoy for Maggie.] It says it's for dogs, but she can't read.

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. 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.

Trivia

The Simpsons holds the record for most guest stars; it is also the only non-variety show to have had appearances from three former Beatles (Paul, George and Ringo).
