Homer the Smithers - S7-E17

Continuity mistake: The lettering on Smithers' desk name plate changes between shots. While he is taking the call from Mr Burns' mother you can see his name "W. Smithers" in black letters. The shot after seeing Burns, who keeps falling asleep, the letters are now red.

Continuity mistake: When Bart visits the kid's train ride, the first shot of it shows that it starts with a big curve before the tunnel. When he goes on it the track is straight before the tunnel.

Continuity mistake: After Homer prepares the BBQ he holds out the steak and holds it back in as Lisa speaks. When the shot changes he's holding it out again, and the pile of meat behind him is smaller and has moved slightly under the window.

Tree House of Horror VI - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: In the 'Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace' segment, in Bart's dream you see a shadow of what looks like someone with four knife-fingers. Then when we see who it is, it is Willie holding a rake. But the rake has five tines, not four, so the shadow is wrong. (00:07:00)
