Mr. Plow - S4-E9

Revealing mistake: At the car convention, Homer chides Bart through the windscreen of Bonnie and Clyde's car. However, Homer's body is not seen through the holes in the windshield, which shows that the holes in the windshield were achieved via a layer of red-coloured holes. (00:04:25)

Mr. Plow - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Bart arrives at school in the bus, after Homer plowed the road for the bus, the sidewalk is covered in snow except for Martin's footprints. Then, when he gets out, the sidewalk has been shovelled, as there is no snow on it. Following this, Bart is pelted by snowballs, which sends him falling face-first into the sidewalk, which is once again covered in snow. (00:10:20)

Other mistake: When Homer is crossing the rickety bridge in the snow plow there is no snow on the planks even though he is in a blizzard and the storm couldn't have just started because the path he just came from was covered in snow. (00:18:55)

Mr. Plow - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When we first see the rickety bridge, there is very noticeably a bit of wood missing from the bridge. When we see the overhead shot there are no gaps of that size. (00:19:00)

Lisa's First Word - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: In the bit where they sit on the sofa at the start of each episode, there is one rather long one where it starts off with the Simpsons dancing in a line, then gradually evolves into a circus with elephants and men dancing around fire. Look closely in between Homer's right leg and the dancing woman on his right. There is a pile of books on the little shelf underneath the lamp and telephone, and just as the camera starts zooming out from the line of dancing, the orange book on the left noticeably changes to purple. (00:01:20)

Homer's brain: It's simple, just use reverse psychology.
Homer: Reverse psychology? That sounds too complicated.
Homer's brain: Alright, don't use reverse psychology.
Homer: Alright, I will!

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.
