The Simpsons

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When we see the outside of Fiesta Terrace, it is a reused shot from 'Life on the Fast Lane'.

OL1V3R666

Correction: Not a mistake, unless there's anything contradicting continuity in that shot.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Homer says "Ooo, that's a lot of money" at Smithers near the beginning, the background is very different, and doesn't go with the scene. (00:02:45)

Yoshi

Correction: It does look slightly different but it is a different angle and we see the entrance to the cafeteria, which could easily have a vending machine outside so it makes sense.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Mr. Burns says "That's one big check," the red chair he was just sitting in has vanished. (00:10:15)

Yoshi

Correction: The shot changes to an overhead one where the red chair could easily be still there but just out of shot.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Homer gets in the car and watches Mr. Burns on television, the lunch box he was just carrying has vanished. (00:07:30)

Yoshi

Correction: He could easily have placed it on the ground.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Homer hangs up on his stockbroker, the candy bar in Homer's right hand has disappeared. (00:03:40)

Yoshi

Correction: The hand holding the candy bar is out of shot during most of the conversation between Homer and his stockbroker so he had more than enough time to put it down.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: In the original version (released on DVD), when Homer puts his dollar bill in the vending machine, a little bit of the screen is cut off on the left side. (00:02:15)

Yoshi

Correction: It all looks OK to me on my DVD.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty does his performance in front of Rabbis, when Krusty's father starts talking to another Rabbi, you can see a third Rabbi at another table in the background. In the next two shots this rabbi has vanished. (00:09:20)

Yoshi

Correction: Between the two shots there is a shot of Krusty. In this shot there is enough time for the rabbi to get up.

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

Corrected entry: When Homer buys the severed hand, the person selling it says "I strongly advise you not to purchase this item". Then why is he even selling it in the first place if he'd advise people not to buy it?

OL1V3R666

Correction: He may only want certain people (such as those he does not like) to buy it. He's advising Homer not to buy it as he's done no wrong in the seller's books.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa says "I'll never forget you," to the horse, her mouth doesn't move. (00:20:45)

Yoshi

Correction: We only see the back of Lisa's head so it's impossible to know if her mouth moves or not.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: The interior of the living room is different when Lisa kisses Homer. (00:13:40)

Yoshi

Correction: We are seeing it from a different angle than normal so it's hard to know if it's really different. Even if it is, this is not a mistake. There is time before and after for things to change.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa eats a spoon of the ice cream, there is chocolate left over. It suddenly changes to being clean. (00:06:35)

Yoshi

Correction: The spoon is out of shot while we are seeing Homer. Lisa may have licked it clean or the ice cream may have have just melted.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: Homer enters the back left door of the auditorium. He jumps to the right side when seen clapping. (00:06:00)

Yoshi

Correction: In between Homer entering and us seeing him clapping, we see Lisa on stage. Homer had plenty of time to move to the right.

tw_stuart

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa starts playing her bad performance, we can hear people clapping, but the audience doesn't do anything. (00:05:35)

Yoshi

Correction: We see the audience from behind, they could easily be clapping their hands without us seeing.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the talent show, Skinner tells the audience that all the doors are locked. Homer enters the auditorium during Lisa's performance. (00:02:05 - 00:06:10)

Yoshi

Correction: Skinner was joking, safety requirements would not allow him to lock the doors.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty leaves the Simpson house, he is suddenly wearing his coat. (00:11:15)

Yoshi

Correction: No, the scene where he is wearing his coat is completely different from when he is leaving the house. He may have gone home in between.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty ends his show at the beginning, the people surrounding him have suddenly disappeared. (00:01:00 - 00:01:45)

Yoshi

Correction: No, the shot changes from a wide look at the whole cast to one of the camera screen which has zoomed in on Krusty so he's the only one we can see.

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Krusty arrives at the Simpson house, the time on the clock in the background changes. (00:05:10 - 00:05:55)

Yoshi

Correction: That's what clocks do, even in cartoons. The changes in time make perfect sense.

tw_stuart

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In the beginning, when Krusty does his axe-throwing act on Sideshow Mel, the number of axes on the board changes from four to five. (00:00:55)

Yoshi

Correction: Look closely, it's always five both in the wide and the close up shots.

tw_stuart

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: The big green chair that Lisa sits in disappears and reappears. (00:05:10 - 00:10:30)

Yoshi

Correction: It was moved to give Krusty space for his unicycle act and then put back.

tw_stuart

Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: During the dinner scene, many things keep changing around, i.e. the glasses, the food, the silverware, etc. (00:06:00 - 00:10:25)

Yoshi

Correction: This is normal during dinner and there was plenty of time during Krusty's story when we couldn't see the table for things to be moved.

The Simpsons mistake picture Video

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)
