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

Bart the Daredevil - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The guardrail at the Springfield Gorge keeps changing between shots when Bart is about to make his big jump; in the first wide shot there is a short rail opposite the "stone ramp." Then in the Bart-POV shot from atop the ramp, the rail is much longer, and the parking lot and picnic area behind it have disappeared. And when Homer is actually jumping the gorge, the rail disappears altogether.

Old Money - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Abe's girlfriend dies in the middle of this episode, but at the end, seconds before the end credits, you can see her walk behind some other old people.

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

Continuity mistake: In every other episode, the bar at Moe's Tavern is a regular L-shape. In this episode, it has somehow gained two additional angles on the long side, making it a Z-shape (plus the angle to the short end, which is not shown).

Old Money - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lionel Hutz hands over the $106 check, Abe Simpson's room number is 18. After Abe called Homer, the manager of the Retirement Castle comes in. The number 18 has now disappeared.

Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: After the safety expedition has taken place, we see that when everyone is in Burns' office that by his main doors there are 4 buttons on the wall. Yet when a shot from further away is shown, they are not there.

The Simpsons Halloween Special: Tree House of Horror - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After the aliens have dropped off the Simpsons in their back yard, Marge is seen wearing her usual red pearls. Except in the final shot of the family. Then her pearls are white. This is not due to the alien light source altering the colors in the segment, because Marge's pearls have been a dark color through the whole episode, even inside the alien spaceship.
