* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' is not only a 2016 4X real-time strategy game set in space, but also an educational Italian "interactive cartoon" adventure game for young kids, released exactly 20 years before. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IDCJDyc6FU Here's]] the Italian game's episode with a space setting... Hilariously, since the name is the same, the YouTube Gaming subsite recognizes the adventure game's clips as clips from the ''other'' Stellaris!

* To avoid confusion with the SoapOpera ''Series/AnotherWorld'', the CinematicPlatformer ''VideoGame/AnotherWorld'' was retitled ''Out of This World'' in America, which caused confusion with a short-lived sitcom from the same period also titled ''Series/OutOfThisWorld''. From a much earlier period, ''Out of This World'' was a Cole Porter musical farce flavored by Greek mythology, and earlier still a movie musical where Eddie Bracken becomes a popular crooner because he [[NonSingingVoice literally]] has BingCrosby's singing voice. There was also a game for the Magnavox UsefulNotes/{{Odyssey 2}} titled ''Out of This World!'', from 1979. (Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} lists [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_of_This_World several other things]] also titled "Out of this World").
