** Also to modern audiences, the implication that Creator/ChuckBerry was inspired to write his most famous song by hearing a white kid play it (Berry was an established, popular musician with a history of hit records years before "Johnny B. Goode" was released).

Although Marty only knew it because Chuck Berry played it, so it's really a situation of [[TimeParadox Chuck Berry influencing Marty influencing Chuck Berry influencing Marty influencing...]]

** Doc says his [=DeLorean=] is electrically powered. In canon, this is nonsense because you can clearly hear an internal combustion engine which sometimes fails to start up. The need for gasoline becomes a plot point in the third movie. Fast forward to October 2011 when the [=DeLorean=] Motor Company announces the [[http://jalopnik.com/5850023/this-is-a-brand-new-all+electric-delorean DMCEV]] which actually ''is'' electrically powered. It runs on batteries instead of a 1.21GW nuclear reactor, though.

** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally]], Eric Stoltz was cast as Marty, while Creator/JeffGoldblum was considered for the role of Doc Brown in the first film. In the following year, Goldblum had an iconic eccentric scientist role of his own named Seth Brundle in ''Film/TheFly1986'', which spawn a sequel ''Film/TheFlyII'' which starred Stoltz as Seth's son Martin Brundle.

** In the first draft of the script, there was a scene with a nuclear blast and a refrigerator, but Steven Spielberg demanded it to be rewritten because it made no sense. Fast forward to Spielbergs Indiana Jones 4 and a certain infamous scene involving a refrigerator.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Instead of doing anything interesting with time travel, time paradoxes, hoverboards, or getting the [=DeLorean=] up to 88 MPH, Creator/DataEastPinball slapped ''BTTF'' artwork on a generic pinball table loaded with {{Spelling Bonus}}es, threw in a few songs from Music/HueyLewisAndTheNews and Music/ZZTop, then cashed the checks. No wonder MichaelJFox refused to license his likeliness for the game.

** The restauranteur in 1955 finds the idea of a black mayor unlikely and laughs it off. 53 years later, UsefulNotes/BarackObama is elected as the President of the United States.
** When Doc asks Marty about who's the US President in 1985, he scoffs at the answer with "UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, the actor?!". What makes this even funnier is that [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump this wouldn't even be the last time that a media celebrity becomes the President of the USA]].

** And of course, in-universe Marty (and by proxy the audience) is caught a bit off-guard by the open racism he witnesses around him in 1955.
