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)
Continuity mistake: When the women of the neighbourhood throw Marge a baby shower because she's pregnant with Maggie, Ruth Powers is one of the ladies there. Ruth only met Marge when she moved to Springfield with her daughter in "New Kid on the Block" (Maggie was already born in the episode).
Continuity mistake: While having breakfast, all of the Simpsons' glasses of orange juice keep disappearing and reappearing throughout the scene. (00:05:35)
Continuity mistake: Marge walks through the doorway from a room with a piano, beside a bare wall, and on the piano are two frames and music sheets. But when Marge turns the jar upside down, there is a large picture on the wall beside the piano, and the music sheets and frames have disappeared from the piano. (00:08:00)
Continuity mistake: When Homer has been informed about the Christmas money being spent on Bart getting his tattoo surgically removed, he leaves the house. When he opens and closes the door to leave, the wreath on the door is white with a red bow. When Homer then turns to look his Christmas decorations, the wreath is now green. (00:08:50)
Continuity mistake: When Homer walks out Circus of Values with his purchases, he bumps into Flanders, and all the presents scatter everywhere. Watch out for a red present with a green bow that goes flying near the left hand side of the screen. As soon as it hits the ground it turns into a pink box with a white bow wrapped around it, with no shot changes. (00:10:15)
