* In ''{{Mulan}}'' when Mushu reads a newspaper, he turns the pages left-to-right since it's in Chinese, not right-to-left as thought it were English.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', for all its FunnyAnimal-laced nature, goes well out of its way to depict all the animal movements as realistically as possible. Even the ''ponies'' move like real horses, and pick things up with their mouths instead of their hooves as the ones from the show's predecessors did. Although quite often some of the characters will [[FeatherFingers use their hooves]] instead, [[FridgeBrilliance possibly as an extension of all the ponies having some inherent magical abilities (such as the pegasus ponies' weather manipulation and absurd strength of the earth ponies), which they don't feel the need to explain properly due to it being common knowledge for them]]. ** That's only scratching the surface. One pony raises his hind leg and glares after being mocked, a very real sign of irritation in horses. The ponies scratch their front hooves on the ground and flare their nostrils when violence is forthcoming, again, a real horse behaviour. The resident MagicalNegro is a mountain zebra, complete with behaviours mountain zebras have and ordinary zebras don't. The former BigBad who spent a thousand years on the moon speaks perfectly grammatically correct FloweryElizabethanEnglish. Rarity's dress-making song indicates a quite deep understanding of equine anatomy. Several blackboards in the backdrops show ''accurate'' complex mathematical equations... it goes on and on.

* Somewhat surprisingly, ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. For example, the episode "[[TourettesShitcockSyndrome Le Petit Tourette]]" actually goes out of its way to point out excessive cursing is ''only one possible symptom'' of the disorder and shows characters with other tics. Episodes addressing controversial issues like politics and religion are also generally well-researched, as are their numerous parodies. Though of course, RuleOfFunny can cancel anything out.

** The intro of "The OWCA Files" showed a koala agent with two thumbs and alligators with overbites (after previous episodes portrayed them with crocodile-like interlocking teeth).

* Subconsciously or not, ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' does this with the opening chase sequences of many a ''WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndRoadRunner'' short (when the predator is able to catch up to his prey so easily). A real coyote can top out at 38 mph while a real road runner can top out at 20 mph. Of course, HilarityEnsues starting with the little burst of speed the Road Runner puts on.

* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' not only manages to avert PacManFever. It's obvious the writers either did an incredible amount of research on video games or knew and understand them not only with the Easter eggs but with how video games worked complete with Kill Screens and DummiedOut content showing up in this movie.

** Although the folding sequence for the giant paper airplane in "Summer Belongs to You" is completely nonsensical and runs mainly on RuleOfFunny, the origami unicorn it produces at one point looks very similar to many actual origami unicorns. Not bad for an art that's usually reduced to cranes, swans, hats and the occasional fortune teller[[note]]which are all traditional models, being somewhat simplistic and having existed for hundreds of years, whereas the various unicorns the one in the episode resembles are far more recent and complex creations[[/note]] in popular culture.

* Much of the backgrounds in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is accurate to actual landscapes in Oregon, the state where the show sets in. They also got the local wildlife true to real life as well (with a few exceptions such as [[MisplacedWildlife grizzly bears and alligators]]).

Ridiculous ship bashing and has nothing to do with the trope
** While its SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendofKorra'' continues all of the above, it earned its own unique praise from [[spoiler: [[LGBTFanbase LGBT fans]] over the level of detail that went into the progression of Korra and Asamiís relationship from a ''strong'' friendship dovetailing into a [[RelationshipUpgrade romance]] despite what some (read: Makorra shippers) [[FanDumb claim came out of nowhere/was used to appease Korrasami shippers and other weak arguments.]]]]
