The Simpsons

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: During the concert at Nelson's club, when the amplifier makes a terrible sound and everyone covers their ears, you can see that old Carl (sitting with Lenny) is pictured white. I mean, yellow. (He's supposed to be black.)

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is on the television talking about her tax rise, we see inside Moe's tavern. Look at where Lenny and Carl are sitting because they have moved 3 or 4 seats down when we go back to them later on. And there is no reason why they would they move like that.

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: When the Ranger stops the Simpsons' car at the start of the episode, watch his "class ring". When he puts his hands inside the car it's on the left hand. However, the flies later eat his hand and take his ring, and it's suddenly his right hand they ate and took it from.

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: Just before Lisa's Presidential "refund adjustment" speech she pushes Bart's tape player off the desk and we can hear it smash off screen. Later in the episode when Lisa agrees to legalise it, he starts playing the same player.

Bart to the Future - S11-E17

Other mistake: In the scene set in the future after Lisa, as the US President, held a conference with some journalists, just before the scene changes they show a black journalist with eyes not drawn among the crowd.

Homer's brain: It's simple, just use reverse psychology.
Homer: Reverse psychology? That sounds too complicated.
Homer's brain: Alright, don't use reverse psychology.
Homer: Alright, I will!

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.
