The Simpsons (1989)

11 corrected entries in season 2

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Bart first writes 'Treasure Island' on the board he has written it on two lines, the 'Treasure' is above the 'Island'. But after a couple of shots we see the blackboard again and the two words are next to each other.

domwhit23

Correction: The word "Treasure" is written above "Island" in all shots of the blackboard.

Super Grover

One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish - S2-E11

Corrected entry: At the start of the episode, you see the meatloaf inside a metal tin in the microwave. Heat waves reflect off metal, so the microwave should have been blown up.

OL1V3R666

Correction: Putting metal in a microwave doesn't make it blow up, it just creates sparks everywhere.

Andy Benham

Old Money - S2-E17

Corrected entry: Mr Burns says to Abe that he has just made a powerful enemy, it's as if he has only just met him. Yet in a later episode we find out that Abe and Burns were in the "Flying Hellfish" regiment in WW2.

Migster

Correction: Mr Burns regularly forgets things and certainly wouldn't remember someone he regards as unimportant like Abe. Mr Burns has to be reminded who Homer is almost every time, even though they regularly interact.

Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Corrected entry: When Homer gets stuck in the water slide, a few kids are sent down to dislodge him, and they get stuck too. However, when the section of pipe containing him is removed later, the kids are nowhere to be seen.

Correction: They were able to pull the kids back up the slide, since they weren't wedged in the pipe like Homer was.

Dancin' Homer - S2-E5

Corrected entry: In this episode Mr Bruns has a big tub of beer with Homer, but in "Homer the Smithers" Mr Burns is drinking beer from a spoon as if he had never tried it before.

OL1V3R666

Correction: After sipping the beer he says "Smithers, this beer isn't working. I don't feel any younger or funkier." Simply put its the joke, that somehow Burns thought a simple spoonful of beer would somehow change him so dramatically.

Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Corrected entry: When Homer is browsing the channels he says "seen it" to all of them. One of them is a non-violent Itchy & Scratchy episode as seen in "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge" (we don't see it but we can hear it). One says "Lemonade", and then Itchy (I think) instantly says "Please". But when you see the episode in "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge" there is a short break between their sayings. This was done on purpose to reduce time.

OL1V3R666

Correction: Like any television show, its prone to small edits by the network showing it to save time. Also since we don't see enough (or hear enough) of it we don't know they were showing the entire cartoon. It may have been a quick clip of the show like they do for news clips or tv ads.

Three Men and a Comic Book - S2-E21

Corrected entry: When Bart is pulling the weeds out by hand, the secateurs that he couldn't use have totally dissapeared from the floor.

Correction: Although very hard to see, if you look closely to the bottom-right of the screen you can see the secatars when Bart first cries out in pain.

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Bart watches "Gorilla The Conqueror" with Homer, the giant gorilla in the film throws a tree at various people. Some of the people are in mid-air before the impact.

Correction: Not really a mistake in the Simpsons, more a nod to the fairly obvious, and poor, special effects used in these kind of movies.

The War of the Simpsons - S2-E20

Corrected entry: After Marge explains why they're having the party, Homer recalls their wedding very vividly, having, "priests, champagne, and musicians," but in Season 3, "I Married Marge," their wedding isn't that spectacular as Homer remembers.

Correction: Homer is an idiot, and his memory is not too good either.

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Corrected entry: The flag outside Springfield Elementary remains still in the wind.

Correction: The flag is soaking wet and therefore too heavy to move in the wind. Perfectly natural.

Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Corrected entry: Marge should not have received the letter from Ringo Starr because of the fact that she was in her teens when she wrote the letter to him, and she was not living in the Simpson family's current house.

Correction: I'm assuming Springfield has a postal service, and all postal services have the change of address forms she could have (and probably did) fill out when she moved.

Quotes

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).
