The Simpsons

Lisa the Iconoclast - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: When Lisa first discovers Jebadiah's confession, she is holding the fyffe and wearing his racoon hat, the screen fades to black (I'm guessing for the ad break) but when it comes back Lisa is standing in exactly the same position, still reading the confession, still holding the fyffe, but no longer wearing the hat.

Kara

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: There are two problems with Lisa's Indian burns. When we first see them, she has 4 burns. Then, while she is showing them to the bullies, there are 3, then 4 again. Then, in the very next scene when she is walking with Nelson in the schoolyard, they are gone altogether.

The Secret War of Lisa Simpson - S8-E25

Continuity mistake: The vehicle they are driving changes form when they drop off Bart at military school to when they drive home. They leave with Homer's purple car (obvious from the crumpled headlight) and as they leave the military school it's Marge's orange car (obvious from the ski racks and lack of a trunk). It's clear from the entire scene that this is all one trip.

The Trouble With Trillions - S9-E20

Continuity mistake: When Homer is watching TV early in the episode, he has a watch on his left wrist. When he begins working on filling out his tax forms, the watch has disappeared. When he takes down the sailboat painting from the wall, the watch has returned.

Dandude

Dancin' Homer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the Capital City number, where the car comes towards camera before they shout "Capital City, yeah", watch Marge's dress. It's green as the car approaches, but as soon as it parks, it turns red, right before your eyes.

The Parent Rap - S13-E2

Continuity mistake: The stocks that are put on Marge and Homer are fitted so that their head and hands are secured and cannot be removed. Whilst in Flanders garage and Homer is using the rotary saw to remove Marge's stock, Homer's stock is still secured on him but his arms and shoulders are through the stocks.

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)
