The Simpsons

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In "I Know What You Diddly-Iddly Did", there are a few errors: Homer says, "Guess I forgot to put the fog lights in" at a slightly higher pitch to when we heard him say it earlier (When the event actually happened). When Marge actually ran over Ned she did not carry on driving. The flashback shows that Ned was run over without glasses. However in the actual event he had glasses on.

Tree House of Horror XII - S13-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of 'Hex and the City,' there is a shot of the wedding cake, then it pans across the people at the wedding, and you can see Homer with his white shirt on. But then when it goes to a closeup, he suddenly has a blue suit and tie on. (00:06:45 - 00:07:20)

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: When the Hamster rolls through the glass of Flanders car it breaks it near the bottom middle of The Front windshield. Later on when Flanders and Homer are taking the kids home you can see the break in the glass has now moved to about halfway up The Front windshield. On of the following shots it moves back to its original position and then moves back to being around the middle of the windshield.

The Blunder Years - S13-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Homer puts a skull in a box on the coffee table. When Moe arrives to explain his theory, first the box disappears from the coffee table, then the entire table vanishes.

Home Away From Homer - S16-E20

Continuity mistake: When Homer tries to leave his seat in the cinema and complains about eating the apple, the shot shows his body fat has wedged him in the seat. However we can see from all the shots before this that the fat was never wedged in like it was when he was trying to leave.

Bart Gets Hit By a Car - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: During Marge's testimony, Lionel Hutz has a neat stack of papers in front of him the whole time. But in the close-up when Homer and Hutz both cover their eyes in sorrow, Hutz has several pieces of crumbled paper and a broken pencil in front of him. The was not nearly enough time for him to make such a mess since the last shot of him.

Twotall

The Front - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: At one point you see a rear view of Marge's head when Homer is talking to her. For some reason her skin is a darker shade than it usually is. It can't be a shadow on Marge because her clothes don't look any darker.

Homer Defined - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when we see the exterior shot of the bus, it is full of kids. In the interior shots, 1) before the twins talk to Bart and Milhouse, every seat is empty, even Sherri and Terri's. 2) when the bus arrives at the school, we AGAIN see a full busload of kids. (00:01:30 - 00:02:25)
