Radioactive Man - S7-E2

Plot hole: The director of Radioactive Man says to Bart "we found our new Fall Out Boy. That's what I would say if you weren't an inch too short. NEXT!" But Milhouse is the new Fall Out Boy, and he's blatantly smaller than Bart. Bart was standing right next to Milhouse, so the director could see the difference.

Casual Person

Bart vs. Thanksgiving - S2-E7

Other mistake: In the DVD booklet, two errors are made for this episode. The booklet says Homer accuses Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and Bart was jealous of Lisa's centre piece. These are both incorrect: First, it wasn't Homer who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving, it was Marge who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and second, at no point throughout the episode was Bart ever jealous of Lisa's centre piece.

Casual Person

Maximum Homerdrive - S10-E17

Continuity mistake: When Red has finished the steak, he lies back and is the same position for Homer's small speech. However, as soon as Homer starts to say 'Wait, you're not breathing,' Red blinks when he is meant to be dead.

Continuity mistake: When Homer and Marge are in bed Marge moves up and we can see she isn't wearing anything, but in the close up you can see that she is wearing her pyjamas - note the thing around her neck, then it's back to nothing.

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: After the slinky leaves Moe's hands, and goes out of Maggie's room, we see that Maggie's toy phone is right next to the door way, then when the camera goes towards Moe, and Maggie, then we see the toy phone next to Moe and Maggie.

Continuity mistake: When Barney becomes his old self again at the training center, he gets on a jetpack while holding a bottle. In the next shot while he is in the air, the bottle is gone.

Little Orphan Millie - S19-E6

Continuity mistake: When the school bus drops off Bart and Milhouse at the Simpson house, Bart puts his backpack on frontwards and starts krumping. When he walks through the front door, he is still wearing his backpack on his front. It then cuts to inside the house, and we still see him coming through the door, but the backpack is gone.

Little Orphan Millie - S19-E6

Continuity mistake: When the men from Festival Cruise Lines arrive at the Simpson house, they park in the left-hand lane (closest to the house) with the car facing oncoming traffic, seen both when they first pull up and, more, in the background while informing Milhouse about his parents. But in the overhead shot of the house, the car is parked the other way around, following the direction of traffic.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Character mistake: Burkina Faso is listed as being among the Southern Hemisphere locations Bart called when Homer is looking over the phone bill; since Burkina Faso is completely within the Northern Hemisphere, it would have made no sense for Bart to call there.

Suggested correction: It may not make sense, but Bart isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. In this same episode, he looked at his globe and thought Rand McNally was a country and was convinced by Lisa that the citizens there wear hats on their feet and that hamburgers eat people. Additionally, he could have just decided to prank call someone there if for no other reason than he thought the name of the country was funny.

Entirely possible, but since Bart had a globe right there to refer to, even someone with his limited geographical knowledge would have been able to tell that Burkina Faso is in the Northern hemisphere, unlike the other locations he did call as depicted in the montage (Antarctica, Argentina, unspecified South American nation, etc).

zendaddy621

Using his globe to determine which countries to call does not negate the possibility of him also calling a number in Burkina Faso for whatever reason suited him. It's ultimately a character decision and not a mistake.

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

Character mistake: When Marge is making a model of Homer for Bart and Lisa, she makes him bald with his hair round the back of his head as we all know it, but at this point in the story Homer was not yet bald. (00:18:15)

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

[The Simpsons are driving down a road as fast as possible.]
Homer: Dear God, it's Homer. If you really love me you'll save my life now.
