The Simpsons

Lisa the Beauty Queen - S4-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where Krusty is asking the girls questions, he reads off a cue card on what to say, but the problem is Krusty can't read.

Correction: In "Krusty Gets Busted" (season 1), we learn that Krusty can't read; however, this show takes place after that, by which point Krusty has probably learned to read somewhat (the cuecards, at least).


Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie - S4-E6

Corrected entry: When Bart runs to the ticket booth, there is no person inside it. However, somebody appears there when he tries to buy a ticket.

Correction: The manager probably saw him coming, therefore walked out to serve him.

A Streetcar Named Marge - S4-E2

Corrected entry: When the producer asks the auditioning men to take off their shirts, he says, using French, 'D├ęshabillez votre chemise,' which is blatantly wrong, as it means 'Undress your shirt' instead of 'Take off your shirt.'


Correction: The producer is a pretentious fool. He probably can't actually speak French (at least not fluently), he is just trying to appear sophisticated. It is in keeping with the character that he would get the phrase wrong, and this was very possibly intentional.

Lisa's First Word - S4-E10

Corrected entry: When Lisa asks what was Bart's first word Marge imagines Bart walking into Homer and Marge's room and says aye carumba. But its in the current house but Bart lived in a different house when he was younger so it is most likely he said his first word in that house.

Correction: (It is the old house. Behind Bart is a green wall, which can't be the upstairs of the new house because that has a pink wall.).

Lisa's First Word - S4-E10

Corrected entry: Even though Grandpa Simpson is younger in this episode, a picture of his older self is hanging in the Simpsons' home. Creepy.

Correction: That's a picture of HIS father. In several episodes of The Simpsons it is established that Homer will look just like Abe as he gets older, and so on down the generations.

Last Exit to Springfield - S4-E17

Corrected entry: The entire staff of the Nuclear Power Plant are meant to be on strike. The number singing in the circle around Lisa outside the plant is nowhere near big enough to run it, and other episodes show that there are many more of them. Where is everyone?

Correction: They were all on strike, they were not all picketing.

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)
