The Simpsons

The War of Art - S25-E15

Corrected entry: When Lisa is researching artist Johan Oldenveldt, it says he was born 6 May, 1942 and died 38 years earlier on 5 December, 1904. (00:06:50)

Correction: The article she looks at shows his lifespan as 6 May 1859 - 5 December 1932.

The Kid Is All Right - S25-E6

Corrected entry: Lisa is singing "One (Is the Loneliest Number)" and looks up the composer to find out that he "died of a heart attack suffered on Valentine's Day." Although Harry Nilsson DID suffer a massive heart attack on 14 Feb 1993, he didn't die of heart disease until 15 Jan 1994.

Correction: Lisa's search said 'Harry Nilsson - Died of massive heart attack SUFFERED on Valentine's Day'. The operative word here is 'suffered'; so what that means is Nilsson died (eventually) of a heart attack that began on the 14th of February the year before. It's tricky semantics, yes but it's correct. It would've been a mistake if he'd said 'died of massive heart attack on Valentine's Day'.

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). 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. (00:01:50)
