The Simpsons

Correction: I'm not sure what you're seeing, but his lips do move when he says this.

Correction: Actually not a mistake. Thats the joke, USA's ignorance of the world around them.

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

Corrected entry: Homer shoots the TV on, and talks to the other members, then when you next see a shot of the TV screen, it has turned off. And it can't have broke because other bullet holes can be seen too which didn't break it.

Correction: The TV wasn't broken; Homer turned it off by shooting a carefully aimed bullet which hit the on/off switch.

We don't see him shoot it off tho. The others are shocked when it's turned on with the gun.

Simpson Tide - S9-E19

Corrected entry: During the opening dream sequence on the "Planet of the Donuts", we get our first glimpse of the monster donut that will eat Homer when his shadow looms over Homer. In this shot the shadow is of a "regular" donut, i.e., one with a hole. In the next shot we see that the monster's hole area has teeth and is filled in with black; in other words, its hole is a regular mouth. As such it could not have had light shining through it to make the donut hole in his shadow.

Correction: It is a dream. Dreams don't make any sense and are not bound by any laws of reality. The donut could have grown teeth and a mouth between shots.

Correction: There is no requirement that they show every judge walking off. Since the judges who speak are shown in mid-shots that do not allow us to see all of them at once, there is no reason to think the 5th judge could not have walked off quietly without speaking while we were watching one of the others.

Correction: Homer isn't the most safety cautious person and this would have frightened Marge knowing he could harm or injure the family. With Marge being an officer she would have had training in firearms and firearm safety so it was likely she was more comfortable having one.

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Corrected entry: The Simpsons arrive back at their house and discover that the 2 carnival workers they let live with them have boarded up every window and way into the house. However, when they are in the tree-house, you can see the windows on the upper-floor have remained un-boarded.

Correction: We never actually see the back of the house when the Simpsons arrive so we can't safely assume that it's all boarded up. More importantly perhaps, we don't see the back of the house until several hours later, so it's quite possible they simply took the boards off.

Correction: This is a question, not a mistake. Perhaps Marge was using it or it could have been in the shop. Or maybe Homer was simply too stupid to realize another car was available to him.

Correction: That mistake is already listed.

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)

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
