** Best of all, Creator/{{Mattel}} didn't let Creator/{{Pixar}} use Franchise/{{Barbie}} in the first movie, thinking it would flop. Four years later, Barbie featured prominently in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' and became one of the main characters in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', along with male counterpart Ken. The fact that sales of Mr. Potato Head went way up after the toy was featured in the first film gave Mattel a change of heart and they were more then happy to have Barbie in the sequels. Speaking of Mattel, in the first film, Rex literally mentions he's from Mattel and Mr. Potato Head mentions he's from Playskool.

** A few episodes are choked with fake ads for Grizzlebee's, a riff on Applebee's, TGI Friday's, and other US-based "down-home neighborhood family restaurant" franchises. "Grizzlebee's: You'll wish you had less fun!"

** The BBC was afraid that "Cover of The Rolling Stone" by Dr Hook would be taken for and advert for Magazine/RollingStone magazine. the only magazine you could safely mention on BBC Radio was the BBC's own Magazine/RadioTimes. So the track was played with a couple of BBC staffers bellowing "Cover of the Radio Times" over the chorus. Rules on playing songs that mention brands are more relaxed now but the tape is still played for laughs.

* Music/Queen's first international hit, "Killer Queen", began with the line "she keeps Moët et Chandon in her pretty cabinet", which wasn't so much conscious product placement as much as it was simply a way of depicting the fictional posh woman whom the song is about; the winery still took it as free advertisement, and thanked the band and producer by sending them vats of champagne as well as tickets for Wimbledon and Grand Prix.
