** All of which might've been averted by using hanyu pinyin instead of Wade-Giles (though "Xi Wu" is no easier to pronounce—the X represents a sound very few Indo-European languages have—"Xi" is less likely to be mistaken for "his").

** According to "The Monty Python Encyclopedia" ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' is about "a grumpy mouse and his odd circle of bizarre friends", when in reality it's actually about an EvilGenius mouse and his CloudCuckooLander lackey scheming to take over the world. They also list the episode that Eric Idle guest starred in as being from 1995 -- it actually aired in 1998.

* For some reason, [=IMDb=] thinks that the main voice actors in ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub'' were Nick Bakay and Richard Steven Horowitz (aka Norbert and Daggett in ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers''). Neither man is in the show's credits, and anyone with a good ear could tell you that the title duo of ''Flub'' is voiced by Creator/TomKenny and Creator/ScottMenville. These errors also show up in Jeff Lenburg's ''Encyclopedia of Animated Cartoons''.

** And the books entry on the Chuck Jones volume of ''The Golden Age of Looney Tunes'' mentions that the video includes ''Porky and Daffy'' (which was directed by Bob Clampett, not Chuck Jones), when it actually means ''My Favorite Duck''.

* In one of Jeff Lenberg's animation books, he begins talking about the ''Peanuts'' movie ''Snoopy, Come Home'', and says the plot of the film is Snoopy being depressed from there being too many "No Dogs Allowed" signs, and Snoopy decides to '''commit suicide'''. Um....

* Netflix strikes again! The description for ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''s "Jinx" says: "In what could be well be the most powerful public service annoucement about the dangers of jinxing, '''Mordecai''' gets jinxed. And it does not go well." It's actually RIGBY who gets jinxed. ('''By''' Mordecai, no less.)

In the landmark 1993 episode 'Marge vs. the Monorail,' it takes a solar eclipse to finally stop the runaway train."

** The fifth issue of Australian magazine ''Krash'' featured an article about the criminal activities of Homer, Bart, and Sideshow Bob, though it got two of Homer's cases wrong. First, it claimed that the inflammatory song Homer wrote about Ned Flanders was called "Flanders is a Jerk", when it's actually called "Everybody Hates Ned Flanders". Also, the article noted that Homer claimed he was handicapped in order to get a helper monkey, but he never actually did (he even said he's not handicapped when asked). The truth is that he got his father a helper monkey, then promptly stole it from him.
