* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', the Silver King, Adolf K. Weismann, who is German, is voiced by Creator/TetsuyaKakihara, who grew up in Germany and speaks fluent German. Averted in that, as of the first two seasons and Missing Kings, he hasn't spoken German in the show... but at least one more animation project has been greenlit, so it could (and should) happen. (He hasn't had the most screentime, since [[spoiler: he's spent the series thus far body-swapped with Creator/DaisukeNamikawa 's character]], but [[spoiler: he's back in his original body]] as of the end of Return of Kings).

* In ''Series/McHalesNavy'', Creator/ErnestBorgnine wore a hat badge that always seemed smaller than any of his costars'. This is because everyone else was using badges that came from the central costuming department and that were then-current (1960s) US Navy issue that were inaccurately large for the UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo period. Borgnine's badge was his own personal property, kept by him from his active-duty days in the Navy, which began before Pearl Harbor--and he had already been discharged and reenlisted because of the attack, much like [=McHale=].

*A partial example, since the shared background wasn't established until after the performer's death: [[Franchise/TheMuppets Kermit]]'s Swamp, which had previously wandered around most areas of the US where a swamp might be, now seems to be firmly established as in Mississippi, not far from Creator/JimHenson's birthplace.
