* Aside from (obviously) no ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'', "[[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showpost.php?p=5853675&postcount=768 Day and Night]]" reveals that Bob Barker ultimately does '''not''' become the host of ''ThePriceIsRight''; consequently, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_James Dennis James]] becomes the host of both daytime and nighttime versions.

** As a point of reference, [[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showpost.php?p=5602657&postcount=496 "The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same"]] points out how "race relations are ''generally'' better" in 1971-2 ITTL, just ''generally''.

* ButterflyOfDoom: What seem like minor changes can have big effects down the line.
** Played with: the world is surprisingly altered for what might at first seem to be a relatively minor pop-cultural change -- but the resulting history is no worse than ours (in some ways, it is even a ''[[InvertedTrope better]]'' world), just different.

Creator/LucilleBall, beloved comedienne, star of the classic 1950s sitcom ''Series/ILoveLucy'', and entrepreneur as the head of her television studio, [[Creator/DesiluStudios Desilu]], is visited in a dream by her late friend Carole Lombard. Once before, Lombard had persuaded Ball to "give [television] a whirl" and star in what would become ''I Love Lucy''; Lombard's second visit, in late 1966, marks the PointOfDivergence. Ball is on the verge of selling Desilu to media conglomerate [[Creator/{{Paramount}} Gulf+Western]], but Lombard warns her away from it, assuring Ball that her destiny is to remain a studio chief.
