The Simpsons

Tree House of Horror VI - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: When the advertisement of Kent Brockman comes to life he is a thin cut out from a bill board, however the next time you see him he is in the shape of Kent Brockman and no longer thin.

Much Apu About Nothing - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: In the early scene where the Simpsons are gathered around the table to eat, you can see that they are eating slices of pie. However, on some of the long shots, the food on their plates changes and looks more like mashed potato and vegetables. Also, in the same scene, in one shot of Lisa, you can see Bart's hand over her plate, but when the angle changes, it is behind her plate.

Marge Be Not Proud - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: As Bart is forced to show Marge the item (picture frame) he is hiding, he pulls it out of his jacket and he hands it to Marge. As he pulls it out you can see there is nothing in the frame or on the border of the picture frame. After Marge's reaction to the photo we see a close up of the frame and there is now a picture in the frame and some colorful decorations around the frame. Whilst the frame could have been the backside when he pulled it out he never turned it over when handing it to her, and Marge never turned it around when looking at it.
