** 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.

* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica will always be a result of the WorldWarII SuperSoldier program. The time he was trapped in the ice in the Atlantic will just become longer.

* Comicbook/ThePunisher is always a [[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.

*** 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.

* ComicBook/NickFury is, like Cap, always a WWII vet, but he got some SuperSoldier Serum-Lite (an annual injection of the Infinity Formula) that keeps him biologically the same age. (Referring to the main MarvelComics universe.)

** Creator/MarkMillar originally considered averting this, doing what has been done with other Marvel characters and shift the war he is associated to something more modern [[note]]This being 2000, it would have been the first US Persian Gulf War.[[/note]] when he was creating TheUltimates. Then he realized that the World War II imagery and the sense of gravitas and historical realism was too much to give up. One might also wonder if the relatively uncontroversial war against the Nazis makes it easier to give Captain America his moral centre than the far less popular Gulf Wars. Compare this with the Punisher...
