Eeny Teeny Maya Moe - S20-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Moe is cleaning his window inside the bar, take notice that the size of the spot he cleans on the inside of the bar is small. But when the shot changes to the outside, with Moe and the others looking out from the inside, the clean spot is larger.

Eeny Teeny Maya Moe - S20-E16

Continuity mistake: As Marge is feeding Maggie a grapefruit, Bart takes out his bongo drums and plays them. Watch as Bart plays - the shot zooms in from the back of Bart towards Maggie, and you can't see Marge in the scene sitting close to Maggie; the next shot shows her though.

Continuity mistake: When Moe is sorting out the flowers at Moe's bar, you can see there is nothing behind the beer taps on the counter, but in the next shot a jar of pickled eggs appears from nowhere.

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.
