$pringfield (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling) - S5-E10

Revealing mistake: At the dinner table Homer says something like "as you know it's always been my lifelong ambition to be a blackjack dealer." During this line, for some reason they appear to have used a clip from an older episode (Season 3 / Episode 3 - When Flanders Failed) and dubbed the line over. For one thing, the animation is of a much lower standard than the rest of the episode. And perhaps even more telling, when he says it, he is holding a fork with some food on it, but from the earlier shots we know there is no food in front of him.

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.

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.

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.
