* Comicbook/ThePunisher is always a [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar Vietnam Vet]] no matter how many years have passed. He has died and come back to life twice (once when [[Comicbook/ThePunisherPurgatory he became the Angel-Punisher]], and once with the Franken-Castle scenario), with both returns de-aging him (the Angels wanting him to suffer more and the process naturally aiding his health respectively). As of 2011, The Punisher's origin has officially been updated to make him a Gulf War vet. Given the dirty and unpopular public image of the Vietnam War, and the importance of this to Punisher's characterisation, an update to another unpopular and ultimately failed war makes sense.

* On ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', a flashback in one episode showed Stan's mother and father as having been to Woodstock in their youths, while other episodes show Stan's uncle Jimbo was a Vietnam War vet. Meanwhile, Stan (and his older sister [[TheBrute Shelly]]) are perpetual children/pre-teens, which makes this problematic as time goes on (or not, given the bizarre nature of their world).
** Parodied in the episode "WTF" when Stan dresses up as the ProfessionalWrestling character "Stan the Man", who is a Vietnam veteran - even though Stan isn't old enough to have served in ''Iraq''.

** You have Grampa Simpson, who will always be a World War II vet.
** And the Vietnam veteran Seymour Skinner. By now he should be as old as Grampa was at the start of the show!
** Montgomery Burns has Victorian-era memories that must make him absurdly old at this point. Burns' age is yet another case of {{Flanderization}} on the part of the TropeNamer. In the 1990 episode "Simpson and Delilah", Burns tells Homer that he's 81 years old, which would place his birth date in 1908 at the earliest. Burns's age was then exaggerated in later seasons; by the mid-'90s he was usually stated to be 104 years old. While this is of course an age that most people never reach, it's still not downright absurdly old. At that point in the series, flashbacks to Burns childhood were usually implied to take place in the late 1800's, which made sense since the episodes aired in the 1990's. The thing is though, that even in the episodes airing now in the 2010's, Burns ''still'' seems to be a child of the late 1800's. Since he also appears to be old enough to have vivid memories of the time, this would probably make him the oldest person in the world today.
*** One episode, "The Seemingly Never-Ending Story", has him listing his birthplace as Pangea.
*** In "The Color Yellow", he confirmed that his father was a Confederate slaveowner. Possible, since there have been cases of [[DirtyOldMan elderly Southern men who took]] ''[[DirtyOldMan very]]'' [[DirtyOldMan young brides]].

** Averted with Homer and Marge through a {{retcon}}. The episode "The Way We Was" firmly establishes that Homer and Marge were in high school in 1970s, and "I Married Marge" reveals that Marge got pregnant soon after she and Homer saw ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' during its original theatrical run. Both of these episodes were aired in 1991, when such a timeline made sense. But since the show went on for years and years after that without any of the characters aging, Bart couldn't have been conceived in 1980 anymore... So the 2008 episode "That '90s Show" retconned the earlier timeline and showed Homer and Marge as still-childless youngsters in the early 1990s.

*** Even as early as Season 2, not long after the "81" claim above, Burns made reference to watching a boxing match featuring Gentleman Jim Corbett (whose last fight was in 1903), and a joke in Season 3 had him plan out a softball team of ringers while unaware that one of his players has been dead for 130 years.

* Even though Creator/AlexTrebek shaved off [[BadassMustache his iconic mustache]] in 2001 (briefly growing it back in Fall 2014), most parodies of ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' will still depict him wearing a mustache, e.g. ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'''s "Celebrity Jeopardy!" sketches.
