Suggested correction: In the first shot he is holding on using on his one free arm - as soon as his second arm is free he grabs on with that as well, this is the change of position listed.

Suggested correction: That's because Moe is wiping the corner by the wall. We don't see that corner again for a few minutes. Enough time for Moe to move the cloth especially since he's off camera.

Suggested correction: He is simply out of shot due to the camera angles.

Lenny is against the counter in front of the donut boxes. The next angle we see Homer standing in front of the same part of the counter with the donuts. Lenny should be there.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Bart crashes at the door of the Legitimate Businessman's Social Club, his head is facing the door. You can only see this for several frames. In the next shot, his head is facing the sky. (00:05:25)

Suggested correction: Not really a mistake. Street lights can be in segments.

When the shot is more on Bart when he's asking what Sherri and Terri are talking about, there's no street lamps seen, even though when it cuts back to the girls, there are street lamps seen that should have been visible in the previous shot.

Colonel Homer - S3-E20

Audio problem: Where Lurleen sings the line "I tried to kiss him," on the TV show Ya-Hoo!, you can see that her lips aren't moving. (00:20:35)

Missionary: Impossible - S11-E15

Continuity mistake: This mistake happens twice in the episode. At first, when Homer arrives on the island, he gives the islanders some bibles and says "Knock yourself out." Ack says that they cannot read. Yet later when Homer is revealing the casino, Ack reads "The Lucky Savage-?"

Suggested correction: Homer had been there for a while when the casino had finished construction. He could have taught Ack to read.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Other mistake: When the wheel falls off Bart's skateboard, in the shot where he curves left sharply, you don't see the school in the background. How could he be at the social club if he just left school? (00:05:20)

Suggested correction: Because the shot has changed and he is now shown to be in The Town.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: There are three mistakes when court is dismissed: 1) the people standing around disappear, 2) the two men with Fat Tony disappear for one shot, and 3) when Bart says that crime doesn't pay, Marge is suddenly standing beside Bart. (00:20:35)

Suggested correction: There are also 3 corrections here. 1) the only people standing near the bench are Lionel Hutz and Seymour Skinner. Seymour is simply out of shot and Hutz is on screen. 2) Legs and Louie don't disappear they remain standing on the steps but due to the camera angle that is now looking across the steps rather than up the steps so they are out of shot. 3) There is a close up of Bart and Fat Tony long enough for Marge to walk over.

Suggested correction: No it is simply out of shot. There are 4 hooks on the lower half of the racks, in the second shot only 3 pegs are visible and we see Bart put his hat on the end peg.

When Flanders Failed - S3-E3

Character mistake: When Homer discovers that the Leftorium is going out of business, there is a sign that says 'Coming Soon: Gum for Less' beside the store. Later on, though, Ned says the new store is becoming 'Libertarian Party Headquarters.' (00:15:50 - 00:19:15)

Suggested correction: The sign is just an advertising poster that's on a wall. It's not in front of the leftorium.

Suggested correction: The bottles remain on the bar, the knife is not placed on the bar so could easily have been put under the bar where Moe is known to keep a shotgun.

Bart the Murderer - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Bart sees that Santa's Little Helper ate his homework, and the camera moves really fast, you can see that the Krusty Doll and picture frame have vanished from the desk beside his bed. (00:00:55 - 00:01:50)

Suggested correction: No, they are still there. You may need to use slow mo to see that it's there but it is. (Slow mo to invalidate a mistake is allowed).

Suggested correction: She didn't have much of a crush on Mr Bergstrom, she mainly admired him because he was kind. However you are correct about the others.

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.
