** 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.

** In high school, the second half of that (at least) is TruthInTelevision. It was true in 1885, 1955, 1985, and it is today.
