The Simpsons

Rosebud - S5-E4

Audio problem: At the end of the episode, there is a clip in 1 million AD. Mr Burns gets Bobo (his teddy bear) and says something to him. When he says this the lip sync is a little bit out as the audio doesn't match what he's saying.

Rosebud - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: When we see people digging Bobo out of the ice, they put him in a bag. If you look carefully you can see another Bobo put in another bag just before the shot changes.

Marge on the Lam - S5-E6

Plot hole: In the car chase, Chief Wiggum says that one of the suspects (Marge) "is wearing a green dress, pearls, and a lot of blue hair." However when we see Marge from the police car all we can see is her hair, so how would he have known about the pearls and dress?

Marge on the Lam - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Chief Wiggum and Homer think that the convertible Ruth and Marge are in is a ghost car, they want to hold each other. In this shot, you can see 1 small star out of the backseat of the police car. But in the next shot, from the perspective of the backseat, there is a canyon top where the star would be.

Suggested correction: This is in the questions as well. With the long amount of time the artists have to make an episode it's very hard that something like this would get by them. It's probably the device you watched it on.

Not true, watching a clip on Youtube and the episode on Disney+ the scratch is present. So it's not the device being used by the submitter.

Marge on the Lam - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: When the man with the white helmet and flashlight asks Homer if he's holding on to the can in the vending machine, a large scratch appears near the upper right corner of the screen over the man's helmet.

Bart's Inner Child - S5-E7

Deliberate mistake: When Homer pushes the trampoline off the cliff, there is no rock below the falling trampoline. However, in the shot at the bottom a tall rock is visible which was drawn there on purpose for the trampoline to bounce off of, despite not being visible in the first shot.

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

TV Announcer: The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield. It's all here: fast kicking, low scoring. And ties? You bet.
Bart: Hey Dad, how come you've never taken us to see a soccer game?
Homer: I don't know.
TV Announcer: You'll see all your favorite soccer stars. Like Arriaga, Arriaga II, Barriaga, Aruglia, and Pizzozza.
Homer: Oh, I've never heard of those people.
TV Announcer: And they'll all be signing autographs.
Homer: Woohoo!
TV Announcer: This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on Earth. Mexico or Portugal.
