Homer vs. Patty and Selma - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: When Homer for the second time throws out Patty and Selma, the knocker just stays in the same place as if the door hasn't opened at all. (It looks like it is floating in mid-air).

Continuity mistake: When Lisa throws her academic alert into the trash, she jumps half way across the stage without taking a step.

Springfield Connection - S6-E23

Springfield Connection - S6-E23

Continuity mistake: When Marge is reading the books on death sports the police arrive and she turns around, you can see the two posts with the round balls on top with no words on it. But when Marge starts walking towards the police station it says "Police" on the balls and the post changes size. Also the door to the police station changes from brown to blue to clear glass and back to blue during the scene.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: In 'Time and Punishment,' when Homer exits the basement, he discovers Bart and Lisa are giants, and he then screams and runs back to the "basement" - however the same door that leads to the basement seconds ago, now leads to a green -carpeted room, and the basement seems to have vanished. The door is also hinged on the wrong side. (00:12:50)

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)
