The Simpsons

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: 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.

Rlvlk

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: That mistake is already listed.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
