Simpson and Delilah - S2-E2

Other mistake: When Homer is giving people tartar sauce at the cafeteria, he says "plenty for everybody" with his mouth closed at the end of him saying it. However the photo in the newspaper is shown with his mouth open. Also, for the last part of "everybody" his mouth doesn't move.

Dancin' Homer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the Capital City number, where the car comes towards camera before they shout "Capital City, yeah", watch Marge's dress. It's green as the car approaches, but as soon as it parks, it turns red, right before your eyes.

One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish - S2-E11

Audio problem: In this episode Homer makes a tape for Maggie because he believes that he is going to die. However the speech is terribly out of sync with Homer's mouth movements.

Bart's Dog Gets an F - S2-E16

Audio problem: When Bart's dog is chewing on the TV remote, one of the shots on it is of "I Can't Believe They Invented It." with Troy McClure as the host. This is exactly the same shot from "Homer vs Lisa and the 8th Commandment". You can tell because Troy's voice is different. The lip sync is also out, revealing that the line "As an actor, my eyeballs need to look their whitest" is dubbed in.

Itchy and Scratchy and Marge - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: In the beginning after Maggie hit Homer on the head, it shows him laying on the couch with Bart & Lisa on the left. The next shot it shows the TV, in the next shot it shows Homer on the left sitting and Bart & Lisa on the right. It's impossible for Homer to get up and switch sides with Bart And Lisa in less than 5 seconds.

One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Just after Homer says, "This fish is delish", one of the pieces of sushi keeps reappearing every time Homer eats it.

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Other mistake: When Bart enters the school bus at the day of history test, we see close-up of his "Early American History" book open about in the middle, on the page saying "Chapter 1". (00:06:10)

The Simpsons Halloween Special: Tree House of Horror - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are eating for the second time the alien on the very left, which previously had spots on his cheek, now has no spots.

Amy Dobbins

Bart the Daredevil - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Homer falls down the gorge, the medics lift him up on a bungee and to the top of the cliff. Between shots the edge of the cliff changes from green grass to brown rock. (00:20:05)

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

Continuity mistake: When Homer is sitting watching cable, the rest of the family comes home and one of them is carrying a plant in a pot, which is put down next to the couch. While they watch and watch cable, it grows very tall and then withers down. When Homer goes behind the TV and starts kissing the wires, the plant has moved to next to the doorway and is suddenly fully grown again.

He's My Brother

The Simpsons Halloween Special: Tree House of Horror - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Bart is unpacking his things from the box, if you look at the mantelpiece, we can see that there is a candle on the right hand side of it. But later on, there is a candle on the left hand side which wasn't previously there. (00:02:30 - 00:03:15)
