The Simpsons

Bart the General - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Nelson takes the cupcakes, you can see that after he has started eating them there are 4 left in the box. Just before he shuts the lid to drop it, you can just see the tops of 6 cupcakes.

Bart the General - S1-E5

Audio problem: When Grandpa Simpson is typewriting a letter in his room, the words he's spelling out loud don't match his fingers hitting the keys.

Bart the General - S1-E5

Factual error: When Bart declares war on Nelson, Herman uses the declaration from the Franco-Prussian war and puts "Bart" in place of "Otto Von Bismarck". The thing is, Bismarck didn't declare the Franco-Prussian War, Napoleon III of France did. A small error, maybe, but something that a war buff like Herman should know.

Bart the General - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Bart enters the tree house after being beaten up, he puts his hat on a peg behind him. In some later shots at an angle you can just see the hat behind him. In the shots from directly in front of Bart, the hat is not on the peg.

Bart the General - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end when Nelson's goons are holding on to Nelson, they both have brown skin. But in the next shot, one of them goes back to having yellow skin.

Moaning Lisa - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Marge drops Lisa off at school for band practice. She walks up to the entrance steps, and then converses with two boys. Then her teacher comes up, and Marge gets annoyed. When she comes to grab Lisa back into the car, Lisa is right by the roadside, along with the two boys and the music teacher.

Moaning Lisa - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Homer says "I can't concentrate with that infernal racket", the shot goes up onto Lisa's room. From the outside, there is no window frame on the window. But from the inside, there is one going right through the middle.

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

TV Announcer: The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield. It's all here: fast kicking, low scoring. And ties? You bet.
Bart: Hey Dad, how come you've never taken us to see a soccer game?
Homer: I don't know.
TV Announcer: You'll see all your favorite soccer stars. Like Arriaga, Arriaga II, Barriaga, Aruglia, and Pizzozza.
Homer: Oh, I've never heard of those people.
TV Announcer: And they'll all be signing autographs.
Homer: Woohoo!
TV Announcer: This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on Earth. Mexico or Portugal.
