The Otto Show - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Otto is playing the guitar with bart in the middle of the night, there are close-ups of Otto whenever he is singing. You can see that the wall behind him is plain. However, when there is a wide shot of otto and bart, the wall behind otto has two tables leaned against them. (00:15:50)

Suggested correction: Not true, in the close up of Otto singing the corner of some shelves are visible. These shelves become visible when the camera pans round to show him turning to look at Homer and Marge. Meaning we see 2 different backgrounds depending on the camera angle. No mistake.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Yoshi

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: In the cafeteria scene where Milhouse shoots a spitball at Kearney, in the shot when Milhouse says, "We have order, but at what price," Milhouse, Lewis and the bullies all change positions at their tables. You may have to watch this part several times to understand it. (00:16:45)

Lady Bouvier's Lover - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: During the wedding, when seen from behind Reverend Lovejoy, there is no podium in front of him (although his hands are poised in mid-air as though one should be there). In the reverse shot, the podium has magically reappeared. (00:20:00)

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In "I Know What You Diddly-Iddly Did", just after Ned has been run over, he turns from a werewolf into his normal self. If you look carefully, his left ear turns brown for a second before turning yellow again.

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.
