Old Yeller Belly - S14-E19

Audio problem: When Bart's gang is singing their song and Nelson is playing the banjo, he sings "because she's dead" and plays different notes yet his hands don't move along the neck of the guitar.

Brake My Wife, Please - S14-E20

Continuity mistake: Whilst Moe is talking to himself about going back to barber college the door to his bar is wide open. When the shot changes to him when he says "Who the hell am I talking to?" the door has suddenly closed. There was not enough time for it to close between shots.

Continuity mistake: At the birthday party Maggie is playing in the sandbox with one of Apu's kids. She and Apu's son both have pink with green polka-dots party hats on.

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: On the trip back from the gardens, Homer rear ends the car in front of him on the bridge which sends Maggie flying out of the car. In a long shot of the bridge whilst Maggie is in the air you can see the car has changed to an orange color instead of the usual light purple color. The two cars in front of them also change during shot. The one in front of the simpsons changes from a normal red mid sized car to a blue van, whilst the car in front of that one changes from being a green car to a blue one during the aerial shot of Maggie.

Homer: Woohoo!

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.
