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)

Das Bus - S9-E14

Character mistake: When Martin Prince supposedly represents Finland's culture for their recreation of the U.N at the Model U.N. Club Martin's outfit is not in fact a Finnish national costume. The outfit he is wearing actually resembles a traditional Sámi outfit. The Sámi people are the indigenous people living in Northern Europe. The specific style of Martin's outfit has characteristics that are more typical to the Sámi on the Swedish side of Sápmi. (00:02:15)

Brawl in the Family - S13-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer's Vegas wife shows him the video in front of Marge, it shows Homer kissing Ned. This didn't happen when she showed it in the Vegas episode.

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.
