Realty Bites - S9-E9

Continuity mistake: Snake has an earring in his right ear, but in some shots the earring is missing then reappears, or it switches to his left ear. Also, when Homer and Snake are fighting on the hood of the car Homer's right shoe falls off, but when the car speeds toward the Murder House, Homer is wearing both of his shoes while he and Snake are still fighting on the hood.

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: When Homer is talking through the door to Cooder about getting the house back, the shot is through the fisheye lens on the door and you can see Marge, Bart and Lisa smiling. The very next shot, they suddenly have a frown in no available time.

Lisa the Simpson - S9-E17

Continuity mistake: When Lisa comes down the stairs prior to watching "When Buildings Collapse", the TV screen is near enough in the corner of the living room and can be seen from the stairs. When Lisa enters the living room, the TV has moved further into the room. Subsequent shots of the TV move it so far into the room that it would not have been possible to see it from the stairs at all in the first place.

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)
