* DeaderThanDisco: Interestingly and perhaps unintentionally the show traced disco's fall from grace in the eyes of teenagers. An episode in the first season, taking place in 1976, is about going to a disco and everyone being into it. In a season five episode a minister tries to connect with Eric and Donna by saying he likes disco and Eric says that disco is kind of lame. Finally in the last season, which took place in 1979, Hyde stages a disco record burning and Fez tries to defend disco.

** The next to last episode of season 2, "Cat Fight Club", features Red fantasizing about the year 1997 and bemoaning Laurie dating Kelso with the declaration that he'll "have a heart attack before [he] gets his jetpack." At the time, a crack about how we still don't have jetpacks in 2000, it became this as of the season 5 finale, "Celebration Day", when he really does have a (non-fatal) heart attack as a result of [[spoiler:hearing Laurie and Fez got married so the latter will stay in the country.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A lot of the characters' HiddenDepths were ignored in favor of {{Flanderization}} no matter how annoying the directionless StatusQuoIsGod got. Jackie and Kelso got the worst of it, in one episode Jackie was shown to be a great mechanic and in another episode Kelso could reprogram a ''VideoGame/{{Pong}}'' table, and nothing was done with either of them.

** The episode "Grandma's Dead" does have a heartbreaking real world example though during the otherwise hilarious funeral scene when each character observes Grandma Forman's open casket and we hear the thoughs that run through their head. Laurie reflects on how life is complicated because you "get all old and die...thank God I'm young and hot!" In light of the death of actress Lisa Robin Kelly at the age of 43 it's cringe-inducing.



** Prior to being neighbors on this show, Red and Bob's actors (Kurtwood Smith and Don Stark) were already neighbors in a sense- Kurtwood played General Galapagos on ''[[WesternAnimation/EekTheCat The Terrible Thunderlizards]]'', and Don played The Rhino in ''WesternAnimation/SpidermanTheAnimatedSeries''- both of which aired saturday mornings on Creator/FoxKids.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The episode parodying ''Series/CharliesAngels'', including the boys' giving their reason for watching: "the hot blonde with the big rack", happened to air in syndication the day Farrah Fawcett died.

** The show spends a lot of time mocking [[StrawFeminist feminism,]] often depicting feminists as ditsy, overzealous, or hypocritical. Needless to say, the issue is treated far more seriously today.

* ShippingGoggles: Fans seem to disregard Hyde's actions in the final season and claim he and Jackie broke up because he didn't want to get married when really the reason was [[AccidentalMarriage pretty much the opposite.]]
