Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: Before Bart notices the lemon behind the lemon-shaped rock there is actually no lemon there. We can later see that there is too much of a significant gap between these two objects for the lemon to be hiding behind the rock.

Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Plot hole: In the scene where Bart has to choose the right Roman numeral door in order to avoid the tigers; right as the Shelbyville kids come bursting through the outer door, Bart picks the right door through humorous deduction and escapes. However, the Shelbyville kids are unable to open the door which doesn't make sense, since there is no lock on the door and there wasn't any mention of Bart blocking or sabotaging the door because only a few seconds later we see him on the street continuing to fret about the lemon tree.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Mr Burns and Smithers are on the balcony of Burns' office. Mr Burns says "It will be like taking candy from a baby. Hey, that sounds like a laugh. Let's try it right now." We see Smithers, whose expression doesn't change as the two go back into Burn's office. In 'Who Shot Mr Burns Part 2', Smithers remembers this event, except now he looks quite shocked when Burns mentions about taking the candy.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: Early on in this episode, Mr Burns says something like "this positivly has to be there overnight", the shot goes closer on every word or so. You can see that the background behind Mr Burns is that of the Plant. But when the shot zooms out, the background is now of one of the corridors.
