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)

Suggested correction: It's not a mistake, its a dream and a shoutout to Freddy Kruger, who Willie is representing in the episode.

Things in dreams don't always make sense. So a reasonable correction.

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.

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)
