* Played with in the ''RockosModernLife'' episode, "Snow Balls", where Rocko and Heffer are lured into visiting a ski resort. The signs and billboards for the resort say that everything is only $5; Rocko and Heffer believe this means that ''everything'' (ski rentals, accommodations, etc.) is $5, but soon learn that every ''thing'' $5 (meaning everything they do or use is $5 each).

*** The Season 1 DVD for ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', despite claiming to be complete, was actually missing the pilot episode, ''Help Wanted'', due to music licensing issues with the song that plays when SpongeBob makes Krabby Patties, ''Livin' in the Sunlight'' by Music/TinyTim. Nickelodeon, did however, rectify this by including the episode on future releases of the show, most prominently the Season 3 DVD as a bonus feature, and with the song included.

*** The complete series of ''WesternAnimation/{{ChalkZone}}'' was released in October 2014 as an Amazon-exclusive Manufacture-On-Demand DVD. However, the set actually omitted one eleven minute segment, ''The Smooch'', for the same reasons as ''Help Wanted'' (in this case, the Baha Men's cover of the song Coconut got in the way). The episode and music video it was paired with, ''Power Play'' and ''All the Way to the Top'', were included, and the credits of the episode were untouched, acknowledging the missing episode. Unlike the SpongeBob episode, Nickelodeon does not plan to go back and clear the rights for the song.

* The DVD set for the first two seasons of ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'' claimed to be uncut right on the cover, but it actually wasn't. Paramount wasn't aware of this, though. They just used what Spike TV gave them (this set was released around the time that ''Adult Party Cartoon'' aired on Spike, then known as TNN. Because of this, TNN aired earlier episodes as well, and their masters were utilized for the DVD, instead of the originals by Nickelodeon. Due to this, the episodes not only contained edits made by Nickelodeon, but extra cuts for commercials too). Complaints caused them to lose the word 'uncut' from the later sets.
