Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie - S4-E6

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Other mistake: At the speed that Homer was chasing the family outside the lodge at the end of "The Shinning", he would have caught them up with ease.

Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When Homer is imagining being locked in the jail cell and he turns around to find he is in his own home, he turns to look at his family. There is a close up shot of his terrified face, and the people in the background watching the game (I think it might be Lenny and Carl) have no eyes. The rest of their face is fine, but their eyes are missing.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In the 'I know what you did-diddly-did' story, the Simpsons car keeps changing from dark purple to the normal pink colour.

Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Marge goes in front of her painting after it is uncovered she stops with her head in front of Mr. Burns' genital area. In the next shot, her head is shown in front of Mr. Burns' hand.

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Homer is making a note for Marge, he scribbles out Patty's name and writes his own. When he writes it, the "signature" is neat, but when Marge reads it, it's sloppy.

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

Continuity mistake: Homer crashes through the security barrier then skids to a halt on concrete. But, a shot later, the car is on a field which wasn't there before.

Jaws Wired Shut - S13-E9

Continuity mistake: When Marge and Homer are at the Springfield formal ball at the Country Club, about half way through the ball, there is a woman with her back to the camera as she is talking to Marge and Homer. Homer is on Marge's left side. In the next shot when Marge's back is to the camera and you can see Marge still talking to the woman, Homer is no longer on Marge's left side, he is gone.

Some Enchanted Evening - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Bart is shown sitting tied up on the couch and Ms. Botz walks in carrying a tied-up Lisa in her arms before dumping her on the sofa alongside Bart. You can see that the rope Ms. Botz has used to bind Lisa is wound right around her body from the neck right down to her ankles. A few shots later when Maggie comes down and frees her, the rope tying Lisa's legs together at the knees has disappeared.
