The Simpsons

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Other mistake: Lanley's desk in his trailer suddenly gets brighter even though none of the lights in the trailer were turned on.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Cobb's hair in North Haverbrook changes length between shots.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When celebrities are coming to ride the monorail, the positions of people in the crowd changes positions between shots.

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Plot hole: At the theatre in the "King Homer" bit, the audience are treated to a traditional showgirl spectacle. But the girls have no curtain behind them, and so the audience should have seen Homer the ape, but they act completely surprised a minute later when Homer comes on.

Homer the Heretic - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: When Lisa says "Truly this was an act of God", her ear disappears and reappears several times.

Nikolai

Selma's Choice - S4-E13

Factual error: When Selma throws Moleman out of her car, the passenger door is hinged at the rear instead of the front as it should be on a relatively-modern hatchback, and the window crank is visible on the outside of the door.

Lisa's First Word - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: Part of Homer's right arm flashes white when he asks his father for $15,000.

Kamp Krusty - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is reading her report card, the writing suddenly appears on the back of the paper, even though she didn't flip the card. (00:04:10)

Nikolai

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: When the passengers board the Monorail, Homer begins pushing two buttons. The second button he pushes is just the counter. There is no button there. (00:15:40)

Casual Person

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When Quimby states to Lyle that Springfield is twice as smart as Shelbyville, Quimby lowers his gavel at the end of the line. In a sudden close-up of Quimby, his gavel is raised again. (00:07:05)

Casual Person

The Front - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: When Roger Meyers throws his nameplate at the writer the second time, the animation is repeated from when he threw it at him earlier. It's more obvious because his mouth doesn't match what he's saying and the background is orange instead of purple like the rest of the scene.

Duffless - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Homer returns to Moe's, Larry the barfly is animated twice.

Brother From the Same Planet - S4-E14

Revealing mistake: The shot of Homer saying "Marge, when kids say bad these days, they mean good. And to shake your booty means to wiggle one's butt" is recycled from the opening scene from Life on the Fast Lane. Notice the animation is of a much lower standard than the rest of the episode.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Doctor Hibbert was among the passengers on the monorail on the first ride, but he is seen with a pair of conjoined twins in his office soon after.

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: When Homer points at the donut guy, his right shirt cuff is colored yellow.

Lisa the Beauty Queen - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: Krusty's nose flashes white for a split second during his song for the winner of the Little Miss Springfield pageant.

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Audio problem: In "Clown Without Pity" when Homer yells "The doll is trying to kill me, and the toaster's been laughing at me!" his mouth doesn't move.

Krusty Gets Kancelled - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When Bart and Lisa are helping Bette Midler pick up trash on the highway, Bette picks up an empty can which says Buzz Cola on it. Just as she yells, "You pigs!" the label on the can switches to Duff Beer.

New Kid on the Block - S4-E8

Audio problem: When Laura tells Bart she has a boyfriend, Bart imagines her ripping out his heart. If you listen and look carefully, you will see the sound of Laura's hand ripping out Bart's heart comes before Laura even touches him.

Casual Person

Tree House of Horror III: The Simpson's Halloween Special III - S4-E5

Audio problem: In "Clown Without Pity" when Homer is singing in the bath, his mouth doesn't match what he is singing. (00:05:20)

Casual Person

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

[The Simpsons are driving down a road as fast as possible.]
Homer: Dear God, it's Homer. If you really love me you'll save my life now.
[The gas needle immediately drops to empty and the car stops.]
Homer: D'oh.
