*** It's possible they're lost ontop of Grand Mesa...in the spring. Even that is a stretch.
*** And Longmont, Colorado is not the idyllic mountain town with thick green foliage shown in the show. It's a suburb of Denver.

* ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' is implied to take place in Mexico. She has been seen picking wild blueberries in the show; mainly on Blueberry Hill, where the villain Swiper the Fox lives. Blueberries never grow in Mexico, they're farther north.

* A German soccer team trainer once famously stated that a certain African player should go back to Africa to dribble around the cacti; little did he know that there's not a single cactus growing on the whole African continent.

* ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': The vegetation in Skyrim is certainly very tropical for what is supposed to be Scandinavia. You'll see Boston ferns everywhere (Florida and the Caribbean), Orchids growing in the ground (Philippines, they're supposed to be growing in trees), Cryptanthus (Brazil), Norfolk Island pines (New Zealand) Potatoes and tomatoes (South America) and even variegated Algerian ivy (a modern garden cultivar that was certainly not available to the Scandinavians in the Middle Ages). Unless the Nords are secretly living in the tropics, none of these plants should be growing in Skyrim.

* ''Film/{{Splash}}.'' Madison is supposed to be swimming around Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The problem is that she swims past coral reefs, and there are no coral reefs near Cape Cod since the water is too cold. Those scenes were actually filmed in UsefulNotes/TheBahamas.


Added DiffLines:

* A particularly egregious example showing CaliforniaDoubling in ''Film/BenAndArthur'' with a shot of the palm trees at the "Vermont" airport. There are also abundant subtropical flora in the garden where Ben and Arthur have their "New England" wedding.

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'': Plants from the Pacific Northwest (e.g. rhododendrons, ivy) in the African jungle. And there aren't any jungles in that part of Kenya anyways.

Added DiffLines:

* In the multiplayer level "Turbine" in ''CallOfDutyBlackOpsII'', there are cacti littered around the map, which is explicitly set in the Sarawat Steppes of Yemen, on the Arabian Peninsula. Thing is, cacti are native to the Americas, not western Asia. Since the game is set in the future, though, you could make the argument that they're a non-native invasive species.
