Tree House of Horror VII - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: In "The Thing and I": After the kids have found Hugo in the attic, when Marge and Homer return home, both front door knobs (inside and outside) do not have backplates, but once Hugo escapes both door knobs have backplates. The two backplates vanish and reappear repeatedly in following shots. It's funny because when they leave to search for Hugo, Homer shuts the door with no backplates, but then Bart uses a key in the backplate to lock the front door.

Homer's Phobia - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: John is wearing Homer's old "Pin-pals" bowling shirt when the Simpsons first meet him, but only after we see the back of the shirt does the name "Homer" appear over John's breast-pocket; clearly there was nothing there during their entire previous conversation. And even if this is a deliberate "mistake" for comic purposes, in 7th season episode"Team Homer", the very same bowling shirt is ripped to shreds when Homer is being mauled by Mr.Burns' dogs at the very end.

Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Marge is first seen doing the entertainment, the shot shows (from left to right): Flanders, Skinner, Kirk Van Houten, Kent Brockman, Mayor Quimby, Grandpa, and behind them, Lionel Hutz, Lenny, Homer and Dr Hibbert. In a following shot from behind Marge the guests have changed places. Reverend Lovejoy is on the end, then Flanders, then Skinner, then Mr Burns, then Grandpa. There is a seat next to Grandpa which is blocked by Marge's head. Also Lionel Hutz has moved far back. Where did Burns appear from and where did Kirk, Mayor Quimby, and Kent Brockman all go?

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. 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.
