** In order to pull off a role reversal the way they did in "Red Man's Greed" they have to seriously study the history of native American people.

* 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/StevenUniverse'' has an alien race made of gemstones. While a lot of astrology research gets used (like rose quartz being associated with healing, and the Rose Quartz character having healing powers), it can go down to crazy levels of detail. [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Lapis Lazuli]] is a cracked gem we meet early on that befriends the main character Steven by making fart jokes. In real life, a lapis lazuli stone absolutely REEKS of sulfur when broken or ground to powder. No one but someone that works lapis or knows someone who does would know this, but there it is.

* 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]]... but then, the premise of the show ''is'' that the titular town is a WeirdnessMagnet).

**** The SceneryPorn of the opening scene, as well as many of the show's backgrounds, is very accurate to actual Oregonian landscape.
** As said before, almost every real-life animal seen living wild in Gravity Falls is actually native to Oregon, including the [[SeldomSeenSpecies somewhat obscure purple finch]].
** The goat that lives near the Mystery Shack has rectangular pupils, just like goats in real life.
** In ''Northwest Mansion Noir/Mystery'', the mudslide [[spoiler: that killed the lumberjack]] was the result of the deforestation that ensued from [[spoiler: him building [[DeathByIrony the Northwest mansion]] ]]. Deforestation can cause mudslides, because the lack of trees destabilizes the soil, so whenever it rains in a treeless era, the ground becomes saturated and slides.
** For all the stereotypical paleontological inaccuracies present in "Land Before Swine", the episode did get quadrupedal pterosaurs right and portrayed ''Ceratosaurus'' with laterally-flat horns.
** The beavers from "Legend of the Gobblewonker" have yellowish teeth like real beavers.
** In "Little Dipper", Dipper feels insecure because Mabel is revealed to be growing faster than he is, despite them being the same age. This makes sense: as anybody with a similarly-aged sibling of the opposite sex can attest, there is an awkward phase growing up caused by the fact that girls hit puberty earlier than boys.
** Fans often say Dipper and Mabel have a 'heart', or more 'heart' than the other pair of twins, [[spoiler:Stanley and Stanford]]. Turns out that opposite gender twins are a lot more accepting and open-minded than [[spoiler:same gender twins]].

** "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E1TheCityOfNewYorkVsHomerSimpson The City of New York vs Homer Simpson]]" took a lot of work from the animators, but they managed to accurately depict New York City. Except for the World Trade Center, as the towers seem to alternate between being parallel to each other and being at an angle as they actually were.

** In "Lisa The Drama Queen," Juliet's John Grisham-loving dad puts on the album of Creator/JamesHorner's score for ''ThePelicanBrief'' - track 3 is indeed called "Researching The Brief."

* Despite being a Creator/{{PBS}} Kids show, ''DinosaurTrain'' is more accurate [[Series/MonstersResurrected than]] [[Series/ClashOfTheDinosaurs most]] [[Series/TyrannosaurusSex documentaries.]]

* ''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.
