* [[Literature/TheTaleOfPeterRabbit Peter Rabbit]] is commonely referred as "Peter Cottentail" by Americans which doesn't help that there is a Rankin-Bass Easter special called WesternAnimation/HereComesPeterCottontail which also stars a male rabbit character. This can cause a lot of people in the US to think that the song "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" is about Peter Rabbit when its actually about the Easter Bunny from that special. This can also be a pretty embarrassing mistake when some Americans would sometimes forget that Peter actually has a sister named Cottontail.
