The Otto Show - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: Bart's guitar is lefthanded. So when the righthanded Otto plays it on the bus, the guitar is flipped over, with the little speaker on the top. But when Otto is playing it later in the garage, it is a normal righthanded guitar, with the little speaker on the bottom.

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is on the television talking about her tax rise, we see inside Moe's tavern. Look at where Lenny and Carl are sitting because they have moved 3 or 4 seats down when we go back to them later on. And there is no reason why they would they move like that.

Jaws Wired Shut - S13-E9

Continuity mistake: In the cinema, it is clear that the people attending the movie keep on changing. For example, For a few shots, you can see that Krabappel and Skinner are sitting in The Front row, but the next time you see those seats, they have been replaced by Lenny and Carl and Krabappel and Skinner aren't in sight.

King-Size Homer - S7-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer is stuck in the hole after saving the plant, Marge is seen in the background wearing lipstick. When Mr. Burns asks if there is anything he can do for them, there is a closeup of Marge and her lipstick is gone. When they cut back to Homer, Marge is again wearing lipstick.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

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.
