Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the last shot of Marge and Homer's discussion of buying a pony, we can see a door on the right side of the screen. This door changes position when Lisa rides in the bedroom with her pony. (00:08:45 - 00:12:10)

Yoshi

Lisa's Sax - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Lisa's Sax' (season 9, ep. 3), King Toot's music store is across the street from Moe's Tavern. However, in numerous later episodes, there are stills of Moe's Tavern that show King Toot's music store next door, not across the street as in the aforementioned episode.

Treehouse of Horror XIV - S15-E1

Continuity mistake: When the younger Professor Frink is receiving and wearing his Nobel Prize, his father goes nuts and starts stealing people's brains. The younger Frink figures out that kicking the elder Frink in the crotch will stop him. When he does, and the elder Frink falls off the stage, he is wearing the Nobel Prize, not the younger. (00:15:00)

Richard Welty

Cape Feare - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when we see MacBain on TV he goes through a curtain, the curtain stays open for a second even though he isn't touching it.

Simple Simpson - S15-E19

Continuity mistake: In the shower scene, we see that in front of Carl, there is a man with brown hair and a moustache in front of him, but then when the shot changes, the man has moved cubicles and a man with white hair has taken his place, and he wasn't even in the previous shot. (00:14:50)

Continuity mistake: In class, when Lisa is sitting at her desk, pondering the Jebadiah mystery, her tray of cookies and glass of milk is very visible. Then when Lisa says "The missing piece of the puzzle. I've got it." and runs out of class, the cookies and milk are no longer there.

Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore - S15-E12

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the episode when all the children are on the bus we can see that in front of Nelson is Bart and behind him are Lewis, Martin and Wendall. Then when the shot changes to behind Nelson, Lewis has swapped places with Bart, Bart has disappeared and some weird kid is sitting where Lewis was. (00:00:40)

Show generally

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)

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

TV Announcer: The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield. It's all here: fast kicking, low scoring. And ties? You bet.
Bart: Hey Dad, how come you've never taken us to see a soccer game?
Homer: I don't know.
TV Announcer: You'll see all your favorite soccer stars. Like Arriaga, Arriaga II, Barriaga, Aruglia, and Pizzozza.
Homer: Oh, I've never heard of those people.
TV Announcer: And they'll all be signing autographs.
Homer: Woohoo!
TV Announcer: This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on Earth. Mexico or Portugal.

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.
