The Simpsons

That '90s Show - S19-E11

Corrected entry: Snake jumps into the crowd of Sadgasm fans and Chief Wiggum is chasing him. However, Snake wasn't a criminal in the nineties. In another episode, you find out that Snake became a criminal when Moe stole his gold to pay for dating Edna. This is the same year that she started teaching Bart and according to another episode, he's never been held back, so it's only been a year.

Correction: The Simpsons history has to be adapted over time, in order to fit its "present day" setting in with the fact that it's been going for nearly 20 years. As such it doesn't constitute a mistake, even a deliberate one.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
