Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bart and Homer find Marge's paintings in the attic, there is a shot of the paintings all stacked up and you can see that the edges of all of them are the same shade of pink as the front painting. However, when the boys flick through the paintings, the backgrounds and edges are a variety of colours, including pale blue.

Bart Gets Hit By a Car - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Marge is being questioned, before she says 'If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all', there is a shot over her shoulder looking at the blue haired lawyer. Not only is he (the lawyer) there directly in front of her, but he is also sitting on the bench with Burns. In all other shots his chair is empty as it should be.

Bart vs. Thanksgiving - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Patty and Selma bring food to the Simpsons' for one shot Patty's dress turns blue before turning purple again.

Bart Gets Hit By a Car - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: During Marge's testimony, Lionel Hutz has a neat stack of papers in front of him the whole time. But in the close-up when Homer and Hutz both cover their eyes in sorrow, Hutz has several pieces of crumbled paper and a broken pencil in front of him. The was not nearly enough time for him to make such a mess since the last shot of him.

Continuity mistake: When there is a rotating shot of Bart, Martin and Milhouse up in the treehouse, the shot never goes past the table, even though it should.

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

Continuity mistake: When the door is answered to Mr Burns and Mr Smithers, Barney is seen answering, who has orange sleeves. However when the door is opened, you can just make out a white sleeve, which could be none other than Homer's.

Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Marge is standing outside the Kwik-E-Mart, she is holding some papers with a picture of Mary Bailey and the words "Re-Elect Bailey." But in a long shot of Marge in the next shot, the papers she is holding in her right arm are now completely blank.

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

Revealing mistake: In the credits it shows Homer eating pork rinds. This is a reused scene from "Moaning Lisa."

Principal Charming - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Patty and Skinner go to see 'Space Mutants IV: The Land Down Under'. In a season one episode, 'The Telltale Head', a sign on the Springfield Aztec movie theater reads 'Space Mutants IV: The Trilogy Continues'.

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

Dancin' Homer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Mr Burns and Smithers are standing outside Springfield Stadium, Mr Burns says to Smithers, "Put a little smile on his card" and Smithers is writing it down with a pencil in his left hand. When the Simpsons arrive in the next shot, the pencil has changed into another piece of paper.

Dancin' Homer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Bart says to Homer that he's on "Jumbo-Vision", the man behind Homer is drinking from a paper cup with a straw, but when we see Homer on the screen, the paper cup has disappeared.

Dancin' Homer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Moe is wiping the beer glass at the beginning of the episode, the glass is initially smooth but changes to dimpled in the very next shot.

Bart Gets An F - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: The door to Mrs. Krabappel's classroom has a window, but when Bart fakes being sick then walks out of the class (we see the desks as the door closes), the door's window has vanished, and the doorknob has switched sides as well. Additionally, earlier, when Bart deliberately falls off his chair in class, note that one of the bars on the back of his chair has gone missing.
