The Simpsons

Lisa the Iconoclast - S7-E16

Corrected entry: At the the end of the episode when the sniper shoots at Lisa we hear the shot first then see it hit the platform. Sound travels slower than light.

Correction: We are located nearer to the sniper than Lisa, so the sound would hit us immediately, but the bullet wouldn't hit until later. The relevant speeds aren't light and sound, but sound and the bullet.

Tree House of Horror VI - S7-E6

Corrected entry: In "Attack Of The 50ft. Eyesores", how could Homer get Lard Lad's donut into the house? (00:01:50)

Correction: Homer tore it apart, pulled it into the house, and then put it back together.

Tree House of Horror VI - S7-E6

Corrected entry: During "Nightmare On Evergreen Terrace", Sherri and Terri have slash marks across their dresses and Nelson is shiny - even his regular clothes. That means that they slept in their regular clothes, which is a bit odd (unless they're imitating Bart for the previous Halloween episode...). (00:07:45)

Correction: Willie was so busy with Bart and Lisa during the night that he had to get Nelson, Sherri, and Terri during their naps at school or somewhere else.

Team Homer - S7-E12

Corrected entry: When Bart's class goes nuts after seeing his "Down with Homework" t-shirt, we see Ralph sitting on the floor, eating paste. The problem is, Ralph is in Lisa's class, not Bart's.

Correction: If he's dumb enough to be eating paste he's dumb enough to be in the wrong classroom.

A Fish Called Selma - S7-E19

Corrected entry: When Marge is sitting awake in the darkness, Homer says, "Marge could you close your eyes? I'm trying to sleep", because of the brightness of her eyes, gleaming in the dark. There was just darkness where Homer was sleeping, indicating his eyes must have been closed, so how would he have known that Marge's eyes were open?

Correction: You can see light when your eyes are closed. A small but bright light in the dark will be especially bothersome for some people when trying to sleep.


22 Short Films About Springfield - S7-E21

Corrected entry: When the tall man has pulled down Nelson's pants and has made him march down the street, the public all laugh at him. You can see Chief Wiggum laughing with them in the background. Funny thing is that he was tied and gagged to a chair just a few scenes earlier.

Correction: Not True. Both these shots were in different films, hence the name 22 Short Films About Springfield.

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)
