The Simpsons

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: Early on in this episode, Mr Burns says something like "this positivly has to be there overnight", the shot goes closer on every word or so. You can see that the background behind Mr Burns is that of the Plant. But when the shot zooms out, the background is now of one of the corridors.

Trash of the Titans - S9-E22

Continuity mistake: When Ray Patterson's / Homer's office is shown, the text on the door is different according to the different shots. When the shot is on the door, the writing on the window (Name and Sanitation Commissioner) is close together, but when the shot is from inside the office with the door open, the writing is apart.

Marge in Chains - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Marge comes to pay for her shopping, she empties her left pocket on her coat, but when Sanjay finds it in her pocket, it's in her left pocket. We know it wasn't in her pocket anyway because when Sanjay finds it, it is bigger than the size of her pocket.

Joe Mc

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: At one point in the episode, Homer is on the phone with someone in his work station. I forget who it was, but anyway, when you first see him, the wire is coming from the left side of him and when he turns to his right, the wire is coming from the right side of him.

Jack Kaltenbach

Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: When all the dads are together in front of Homer's house, one of them is wearing a grey sweater. When they enter the RV the man with the grey sweater doesn't, but throughout the episode he keeps appearing and disappearing on the RV.

Suggested correction: The banister is always present. However, Homer's body occasionally blocks the view of the bannister giving the impression that it is absent.

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.
