Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Marge is first seen doing the entertainment, the shot shows (from left to right): Flanders, Skinner, Kirk Van Houten, Kent Brockman, Mayor Quimby, Grandpa, and behind them, Lionel Hutz, Lenny, Homer and Dr Hibbert. In a following shot from behind Marge the guests have changed places. Reverend Lovejoy is on the end, then Flanders, then Skinner, then Mr Burns, then Grandpa. There is a seat next to Grandpa which is blocked by Marge's head. Also Lionel Hutz has moved far back. Where did Burns appear from and where did Kirk, Mayor Quimby, and Kent Brockman all go?

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.
