Continuity mistake: When the younger Professor Frink is receiving and wearing his Nobel Prize, his father goes nuts and starts stealing people's brains. The younger Frink figures out that kicking the elder Frink in the crotch will stop him. When he does, and the elder Frink falls off the stage, he is wearing the Nobel Prize, not the younger.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Homer is looking for another message from his mom to find out if she's really alive, Marge and the kids enter the kitchen, Marge says that it's 2 in the morning. But the clock on the wall shows that it's 9 pm.
Factual error: Homer creates a giant sugar ball by making a normal sized cotton candy on a paper cone, and then coating it with liquid caramel. The cotton candy holds its shape and Homer continues to expand it with more cotton candy and caramel. However, cotton candy dissolves very quickly and tears apart easily. Between the weight and moisture content of the caramel, the original cotton candy would have immediately melted and/or collapsed.
Continuity mistake: When Homer realises that the bear was only agressive because of the electrical tag, they share a bear hug. The back of Homer's shirt is torn to tatters, and his back is bleeding. Immediately thereafter, the back of Homer's shirt is completely intact.
Continuity mistake: When we first see the medicine cabinet in the Simpson's bathroom the hinges are on the left. When Homer pokes it with the wire it opens as if the hinges are on the other side. The last time we see it, when Lisa rescues Maggie, the door is missing altogether. (00:01:25)
Continuity mistake: When Homer writes an autograph for Ralph at the restaurant, Lisa is sitting opposite Marge, has yellow liquid in her glass and has red and brown food on her plate. In the next shot, Lisa is opposite Homer, has a blue drink and has white and green food. (00:14:25)
