Deep Space Homer - S5-E15

Other mistake: In the scene where the Simpsons are viewing the path of the Corvair's Re-entry, the blip representing the spaceship crosses the entire US from North-West to South-East in about three seconds. This is really impossible, even for something going as fast as a spaceship on re-entry would be.

Boy Scoutz N the Hood - S5-E8

Other mistake: When Ned and Homer's raft is going fast, Ned decides to go on the left side of the gorge, so he paddles on the left side, which causes a raft to turn to the right, which 1, means the raft moved to the left, which is impossible, and 2, he wanted to go to the left, but paddled like he wanted the raft to turn right.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
