* CriticalResearchFailure:
** In the "90's Revisited" skit, Michael Moore interviewed the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' villain Mesogog, despite Mesogog not being introduced until ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' in 2004.
** The ending of the "Potter, You Fool" skit where Hermione committed suicide after being cyber-bullied on Website/{{Facebook}}, even though Website/{{Facebook}} didn't exist in the early-mid 1990s when the Literature/HarryPotter books take place.
** The "Ballad of Gay Tony" skit where [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife]] talks about his fetish for crossdressing. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', however, Cloud was forced by Aerith to crossdress against his will, but he reluctantly did so because he wanted to rescue Tifa.
** J.R.R. Tolkien never had a grandson known as "J.R.R. Tolkien Junior Junior". In fact, both of the grandchildren of Mr. Tolkien that ''do'' have a "J." for a first initial are ''female''.
** Clearly, whoever wrote the "Martian Boyhunter" sketch never heard of Miss Martian.

** As Palpatine descends to his doom, he decides to make amends with Jar-Jar and apologizes for manipulating him into giving him the emergency powers which did a great deal of paving the way for the Empire. Jar-Jar responds by laughing at the idea that Palpatine manipulated him, and dons a Sith cloak and laughs maniacally. In the finals days before the release of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', a theory suggesting Jar-Jar was the ''true'' evil Sith antagonist of the franchise ran wild across the Internet.

** The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' sketch that parodied ''Series/BreakingBad'' took random scenes from the latter without any indication of knowledge of their context. Examples include Dumbledore (who is the stand-in for Walter White) being in his underwear for no explained reason (Walter only did it in one episode because he didn't want his clothes smelling like a meth lab), Ron getting half of his face blown off in a lab accident (when in the scene it was spoofing, the explosion was intentional so Walt could [[spoiler: get rid of Gus]]), the severed-head-turtle bomb, leading to [[spoiler: Dumbledore dying for getting shrapnel in his abdomen]] (which not only wasn't done by Walter, but wasn't [[spoiler: the cause of his death either]]).

** The 1776 Sketch, a parody of [[Film/ThreeHundred 300]], becomes funnier with the recent announcement that [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/03/02/zack-snyder-wants-to-make-george-washington-film-in-style-of-300 Zack Snyder wants to do a film about George Washington]].



* WeirdAlEffect: The series has become sort of a Weird Al Effect making machine almost on the level of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''. It doesn't help that a fair portion of its audience has never seen the 80's cartoons it parodies.

** The "[[Film/TheTransporter Transporter 3]]" sketch, released a few years before the ''actual'' Transporter 3 came out.

** The skit with the Nerd in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. Other than the use of weapons that clearly are not from TF2, it also features the Medic shooting the Nerd with a submachine gun, which in-game is only used by the Sniper, and friendly fire is only possible if a server admin enables it through a console command, which they almost never do [[{{Griefer}} for obvious reasons]]. Less egregious is that the camera doesn't change to a third-person view when the Nerd is killed.

** Season 5 is almost universally agreed upon by fans of the show as the absolute low point of the series, since it seemed that the entire focus of that season was to be as [[CrossesTheLineTwice blatantly offensive as humanly possible]] at the expense of actual comedy. See the DudeNotFunny entry above? The majority of the specific examples listed come from that season. Thankfully the creators got the hint, and season 6 has seen a massive improvement all around.
