Bart Gets a Z - S21-E2

Continuity mistake: Ms. Krabapple takes the cellular devices from the children in her class and puts them in a Laramie Cigarette box. She dumps the box into a desk drawer filled with frogs.

The Color Yellow - S21-E13

Factual error: In the scene where Lisa's great great grandmother, and the slave Virgil escape to Canada, they enter Canada across a suspension bridge, which has, on the Canadian side, the Canadian Maple Leaf flag. In 1860, Canada was not yet even a country, and the flag was the Union Jack and the Canadian Ensign. The Maple Leaf was not adopted as the Canadian flag until February 15, 1965.

American History X-cellent - S21-E17

Continuity mistake: When we see Homer in the audience at the conference at the beginning of the episode, he is sitting between a lady with grey hair and a man with black hair.

The Bob Next Door - S21-E22

Audio problem: When Marge says "Now that it's empty, who's going to buy their house? What if someone moves in with two Barts? Or four teenage Barts?" her mouth movements don't match most of her dialogue.

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.
