The Simpsons

Stark Raving Dad - S3-E1

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the episode, Bart is talking about being 10 years old even though his 10th birthday is in the episode "Radio Bart" later in the season.

sam145

Correction: Bart has been 10 since the first episode. Since the Simpsons don't age, every birthday of Bart's is his 10th birthday. Homer is the only one that seems to age.

Nikolai

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Corrected entry: At recess, Bart splits his pants in front of the girls. This split isn't visible in any other part of the episode.

00:02:35

Yoshi

Correction: This episode takes place over multiple days so he could have changed his pants at the start of each day.

Colonel Homer - S3-E20

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the episode, the family goes to the Googolplex theater but when the show cuts to a shot of the movie screen when Bart and Lisa are watching Space Mutants, the decor around the screen indicates that they are at the Aztec theater.

00:03:20

Correction: Seeing how Springfield used the same plans for Springfield Elementary and North Springfield Elementary it should be no surprise that two theaters in Springfield have the same decor.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Homer is on the phone with someone in his work station, (I think it's Lisa) he's talking on a phone that's connected to his work panel. When he turns to his right, there's another phone connected to the wall. Why would one person need two phones?

Jack Kaltenbach

Correction: One closed-circuit intercom for calls made inside the plant, and one regular phone. For instance.

Twotall

Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes? - S3-E24

Corrected entry: Homer wants a vibrating chair because his sofa fell apart, which his brother buys for him at the end. In the last scene, Marge is sitting on the same sofa as if it is intact.

OL1V3R666

Correction: Homer's brother could've paid for a new, resembling the old one.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: As Maggie makes her wish, the wall color in the room changes from pink to green.

00:03:50

Yoshi

Correction: The only shot with a green background is that of the actual paw, and it's an overhead view showing a green floor. The wall colour never changes.

Radio Bart - S3-E13

Corrected entry: When Bart talks through the microphone after pulling it out of Santa's Little Helper's mouth, he talks in the exact same voice as Todd Flanders.

00:14:45

Yoshi

Correction: Bart is impersonating a young boy (not necessarily Todd Flanders). He doesn't use his normal voice during the whole prank.

Black Widower - S3-E21

Corrected entry: When Selma is in the bath with a cigarette, she sinks under the water dragging the cigarette with her. However, if you look and listen very closely, the sound of the cigarette being extinguished happens very slightly before it actually makes contact with the water.

Correction: In the shot as she is just about to go under the water, you can see the cigarette start to glow a bit redder. This would mean Selma is inhaling as she is going under the water. As she would be inhaling, a small area below the lit area would start to get hotter and so would make sense that the sound of it being extinguished just a split second before the lit area goes under the water.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: Mr. Burns and Smithers put Homer in the bag. They weren't carrying a bag when they got to the cemetery.

00:17:20 - 00:18:10

Yoshi

Correction: It was inside Smithers' coat.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: At the end of Part 1, the crowd carrying Flanders jumps from being on his front lawn to the middle of the street.

00:08:30

Yoshi

Correction: No they don't, they are on the pavement in every shot.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When the aliens land in Springfield, the number and positions of the crowd in front of the Jebediah statue change between shots.

00:06:20

Yoshi

Correction: There are various different shots from different angles, it's impossible to tell if the crowd is really changing.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Homer, Bart, Lisa and Maggie are eating candy, they eat and eat without taking the wrappers off.

00:01:50

Yoshi

Correction: We never see any of them eat candy with the wrapper on.

tw_stuart

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When the family (except Marge) starts eating candy, their costumes are suddenly off, when they never had time to take them off.

00:01:25 - 00:02:15

Yoshi

Correction: Bart is wearing exactly what he was wearing in the previous shot and Lisa is wearing the bottom half of her costume. The top half came off when Bart pushed her over.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Homer shuts the door after his candy gets stolen, we only hear eggs being thrown at the door. In the next shot, the pumpkin beside the door appears to be broken.

00:01:20

Yoshi

Correction: They presumably kicked it or stood on it which wouldn't necessarily be a loud enough noise for us to hear from inside.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: At the beginning, when Jimbo and Kearney take Homer's candy, the door knocker is gone in the first shot. There is also a peephole on the inside of the door, and is never visible from the outside.

00:01:05

Yoshi

Correction: Not really, Homer opens the door so fast we don't have time to see the knocker and then the place where it should be is blocked by his head. As for the peephole maybe it was one of Homers DIY projects.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: Homer takes a drink of his beer, but his mouth doesn't open.

00:14:25

Yoshi

Correction: His mouth may only be slightly open, and you don't need to fully open your mouth to drink. It is possible to drink with your mouth only slightly open.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: The kitchen appears to be very different after Marge finds out Homer bought a horse.

00:12:10 - 00:13:00

Yoshi

Correction: The kitchen does not at all look different.

OL1V3R666

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa calls Homer at the power plant, the same footage of him sleeping and waking up in the beginning is used.

00:18:55

Yoshi

Correction: There is nothing contradicting continuity by reusing this shot, so this isn't really a mistake.

OL1V3R666

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Corrected entry: While Bart is watching TV, Homer comes home, and Bart is holding a bottle. He never had it when he came into the living room.

00:12:15 - 00:13:35

Yoshi

Correction: Given Bart's powers in this episode he could easily have made a bottle appear. A more mundane explanation is that Lisa or Marge brought it to him, there was more than enough time.

The Otto Show - S3-E22

Corrected entry: When Otto plays Bart's guitar for the first time on the bus, it generates an amazing electric sound, but it isn't even plugged into an amp.

Correction: That's the joke.

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).
