Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Suggested correction: There are also 3 corrections here. 1) the only people standing near the bench are Lionel Hutz and Seymor Skinner. Seymor is simply out of shot and Hutz is on screen. 2) Legs and Louie don't disappear they remain standing on the steps but due to the camera angle that is now looking across the steps rather than up the steps so they are out of shot. 3) There is a close up of Bart and Fat Tony long enough for Marge to walk over.

Suggested correction: No it is simply out of shot. There are 4 hooks on the lower half of the racks, in the second shot only 3 pegs are visible and we see Bart put his hat on the end peg.

Show generally

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)
