Then it was ''Ten Little Indians'' before that term for Native Americans fell out of politically correct language, resulting in its current title. In the novel, the rhyme was changed from ''Ten Little Niggers'' to ''Ten Little Indians'' to ''Ten Little Soldier Boys'', and the name of the island from ''Nigger Island'' to ''Indian Island'' then to ''Soldier Island''.

** In ''The Prehistory of TheFarSide'' Gary Larson admits to a few examples. For example, one comic involved a vampire watching a TV ad boasting "when you're out of A-positive, you're out of blood!" with the caption "Your Vampire TV station." Larson admitted finding that caption redundant, and sure enough it never accompanies the comic in any other Far Side collection or calendar.

* The original Ride/PiratesOfTheCaribbean ride at Ride/DisneyThemeParks was refurbished to include characters from the film adaptations, and even rerecorded dialogue for several of the ride's original characters referencing Jack Sparrow. [[BrokenBase Fan reaction was mixed]]. Many years prior to the movie, the ride was altered to give all the women being chased by the pirates plates full of food -- to tone down the implications of the scene by attempting to provide a G-rated motive for the pursuit (they're just trying to steal the food! And the women are trying to prevent them from stealing the food! that's all.)

** In the first American printing of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', a mistake made by Rowling's US-market editor made it so the order in which the shadows of Harry's parents come out of Voldemort's wand contradicts the order in which Voldemort said he killed them, launching a thousand EpilepticTrees. This was corrected in later editions.
