* When it was announced that ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' would be getting a brand new fifth season years after being cancelled, one notable aspect that surprised many is that the new season would be set to premiere on Creator/{{Toonami}} on Creator/AdultSwim... and would ''still'' be produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the same company who produced the first four seasons. Surprising? Maybe, but it's actually not the first time that Cartoon Network Studios has produced anything for [adult swim]. That honor belongs to the second season of ''WesternAnimation/BlackDynamite''.

* Many people are unaware that the cartoon segments on ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' originated as segments of the short-lived ''Mickey [=MouseWorks=]'' television series, possibly due to some of the shorts making their debut on ''House of Mouse'' without previously airing as part of ''Mickey [=MouseWorks=]''.

** And the trend of CelebrityVoiceActors in animated films actually started with ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', a Universal Studios production from 1986 that starred Dom DeLuise and Madeline Kahn, though ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' would be the TropeCodefier.

* On a larger scale, a lot of baby boomers who grew up in TheSixties, if they have no knowledge of animation history, will be surprised when you tell them that cartoons from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation such as ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' and ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' were coming out in the 1930s and '40s, and were already decades old back when they remember watching the cartoons on Saturday mornings.

* There used to be a very vocal faction at the [=IMDb=] forums which reckoned that "all of [=DreamWorks'=] ideas were stolen from Pixar" (yes, '''''all''' of them''). At least two of their favorite examples were shown to be nonsense, as they were in production years before and only bore a superficial resemblance, and in any case one of them (''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'') was actually an AardmanAnimations movie -- the [=DreamWorks=] involvement was minimal.

*** Even those who think the episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E2CapeFeare Cape Feare]]" is a direct parody of the two ''Film/CapeFear'' films have forgotten that said films are based on the 1957 John D. [=MacDonald=] novel, entitled ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Executioners_(MacDonald_novel) The Executioners]]''; in other words, the episode seems to be parodying the original novel itself.
