* Likewise, many people think the opening theme (and all the game's other music for that matter) of ''VideoGame/{{Frogger}}'' is original and attribute it to the game. Like this [[http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00078 remix by OCRemix site founder DJ Pretzel]]. The opening is actually taken from an old Japanese childrens' song called ''Inu no Omawarisan''. The acknowledgement on OCRemix was only added in much later.

* On the comments of some ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' videos on [=YouTube=],[[note]] mostly of talking toys of the character, but one instance occurred on How It Should Have Ended's take on the film[[/note]] people who have never seen the film will often assume that Bing Bong's dolphin noise was a reference to the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Sailor Mouth" by being used to censor a profane phrase. He's actually part dolphin, which is why he makes that noise.

** On the subject of [=SpongeBob=], some people think that the term "BC" was created by the show because of "SpongeBob Goes Prehistoric" using the term multiple times, when it was actually created by historians.

* When characters in old Looney Tunes or MGM cartoons use the term "Come with me to ze casbah" they are actually referencing the 1937 film "Algiers", where Charles Boyer's "Pépé Le Moko" used this line. Note that people will probably not realize this, even if they HAVE seen this movie, because it was only used in the trailer.

* When ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' came out eagle-eyes viewers liked to point out the "easter egg" in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' where David (Lilo's Sisters Boyfriend) is seen wearing Mauis Fishhook as a necklace. The Internet was quick to point out that this was the equivalent of thinking that every character that wear a cross or crusifix in movies is in reference for ''Film/TheLastTemptationOfChrist''.

''Film/TheLastTemptationOfChrist'', never mind the fact that ''Lilo & Stitch'' predates ''Moana'' by fourteen years.

* Many kids today will hear old Hawaiian standards only to think they first came from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' or ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''.
