The Simpsons

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Other mistake: When the pupils are doing the test at school, you hear Miss Hoover say a question with three possible answers; but 1) There are 5 possible answers on the test when we see Lisa doing it, and 2) Miss Hoover says the 60th question, but Lisa looks to be nowhere near the 60th question.

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Other mistake: When Lisa rings Homer to tell him that she loves him, the shot of her talking is re-used from "Bart's Dog Gets an F." We can tell this because her cheeks inexplicably appear puffed up (in "Bart's Dog Gets an F" she had mumps).

Mr Top Hat

Homer at the Bat - S3-E17

Other mistake: In the end credits where it says, "Special Guest Voice", Marcia Wallace's name is there. Mrs. Krabappel was originally supposed to be in the episode but wasn't because Jose Canseco disliked his original part. He was originally slated to wake up in bed with her and miss the game, but Canseco's then-wife, Esther Haddad, objected. (00:29:00)

Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes? - S3-E24

Other mistake: On the DVD, When Homer is sitting on the Spinemelter, he says at one point "I've tried to fill it with family, religion, community service, but those were dead ends. This card is the answer". However the subtitles say "I've tried to fill it with family, religion, but those things were dead ends. This card is the answer", leaving "community service" out.

Casual Person

Black Widower - S3-E21

Other mistake: When Sideshow Bob leaves Selma to watch MacGyver, the room opposite is 350. Later when he is being taken away by the police there is a room 44. It's unlikely these two numbers would be on the same floor.

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

Other mistake: As Kang and Kodos fly away from Earth in their spaceship, you can see that the Earth has been coloured wrong. The continents are blue, and the sea is green.

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)
