* ArtisticLicenseGeography: In ''The Jungle'', the Amazon, African and Asian jungles are all within an area a couple of miles wide, when in real life they are on opposite sides of the planet. {{Lampshaded}} by Buzzy:
--> '''Buzzy:''' In real life, these jungles are all in different parts of the world, but I'd be too tired to talk if I had to fly back and forth, so this is ''much'' better!

''BuzzyTheKnowledgeBug'' is a series of children's computer games made by HumongousEntertainment. Each game played out like a visual encyclopedia, where you would be going through the farm, the airport, or the jungle (depending on the game). You would be able to trigger the many [[PopUpVideoGames click points]] to see all the random inanimate objects come to life, as well as use the "What is this?" command to click on anything in the scenery and be taken to its definition in the index. Each game also included five mini-games, three which were always a coloring book, an "I Spy" styled Find It game, and Trivia. Two of them, on the other hand, changed from game to game. One of them was a puzzle game (Hangman in ''The Farm'', "What is It?" in ''The Airport'', and an unscramble-the-word game in ''The Jungle''), but the other was an arcade-styled game.

The series didn't last very long before falling to the wayside, mostly because they didn't quite live up to the popularity of Humongous' other games. Indeed, they are not as well remembered as the point-and-click AdventureGames or the BackyardSports. That said, they still have their own following in the Humongous fanbase.

** Former developer Richard Moe later admitted he did this because he was tired of working on the game when he made Level 99 and just wanted to get it shipped, so he decided to be a sadist and make it UnwinnableByDesign.

** Former developer Richard Moe later admitted he did this because he was tired of working on the game when he made Level 99 and just wanted to get it shipped, so he decided to be a sadist and make it UnwinnableByDesign. He did say he regretted not giving a proper payoff in retrospect, though.

* MisplacedWildlife: It's bizarre that an educational game series would exhibit this trope, but nonetheless in ''The Jungle'', some wildlife is not found in the proper location. For instance, a tarsier is seen in the Amazon when in real life they are only found in Southeast Asia. Likewise an antbird is seen in the African jungle when in actuality they only live in the Amazon.

Tarsier... is found... in the Amazon jungle.")
