* In one of Jeff Lenberg's animation books, he begins talking about the ''Peanuts'' special ''Snoopy, Come Home'', and says the plot of the movie is Snoopy being depressed from there being too many "No Dogs Allowed" signs, and Snoopy decides to '''commit suicide'''. Um....
** That's not the only error in Lenberg's book. In the ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' entry, he lists the General as a character. There was no General as a recurring character (as he was on the [[WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines spinoff]], albeit heard and not seen), just Private Meekley and Sgt. Blast. Also: ''Help! It's the Hair Bear Bunch!'' reputedly went into syndication after its CBS run under the title "The Yo-Yo Bears" (its working title). The show remained off the air until 1984 when USANetwork ran it in repeats.
* The desperation-born sweat from reporters trying to figure out just what the hell ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' is was enough to smudge the pages. Most of them came up with variations on "show about anthropomorphic food detective superheroes".
** Even ''Magazine/TVGuide'''s description of the show is, "Food items fight crime". ''You'' try explaining it.
** Well, that ''was'' the original premise of the show...for about one episode -- the whole reason the first episode portrayed them as a crime fighting team was that the creators couldn't think of a way to explain what the show really was in any way that would get it green-lighted.
*** It was actually stated in the show on at least one occasion: in the episode "Robositter", Shake refers to them as "detectives" (to which Frylock replies, "We haven't actually ''detected'' anything in three years").
* Small potatoes given some of the other examples here, but ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is sometimes called "'''[[SpellMyNameWithAThe The]]''' Family Guy".
** Within ''Family Guy'', Peter thinks {{Scrubs}} is a [[IAmNotShazam character's name]]. Also Black Scrubs.
** Agent Booth called it this on an episode of ''{{Bones}}'', which was a little odd since it was the episode that featured a well-publicized IntercontinuityCrossover appearance by Stewie.
*** Even odder -- Stewie was a manifestation of Booth's subconscious, indicating that Booth must be at least a moderate viewer of the show for it to be on his mind. Yet he still gets the title wrong!
** Time Warner Cable descriptions of ''Family Guy'' sometimes gives the vague description, "Nihilistic animated antics of the grousing Griffins."
*** Specific episode descriptions from other providers don't get much better, such as Comcast's insistence that Quagmire hates the title character of "Jerome is the New Black" (it's Brian who Quagmire hates), or Dish Network assuming "Lois Kills Stewie" is about Stewie auditioning for ''Series/AmericanIdol'' (this was a thirty-second-long CutawayGag).
** According to audio commentary, this almost happened with a joke about ''{{JAG}}''. Apparently the writers had never watched the show and assumed Jag was the name of a character.
** [[http://articles.latimes.com/2009/mar/26/business/fi-cotown-chernin26 This ''Los Angeles Times'' article]] actually refers to Peter Griffin as "Peter Griffith."
** The original DVD releases of the show's first three seasons were infamous for often featuring episodes descriptions that weren't even close to being accurate to what actually happened in the episode. "Fifteen Minutes of Shame" for example tells about a subplot of Meg taking a job as maid for the Von Trapp family, which doesn't happen at all within the episode.
* Time Warner Cable descriptions of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episodes sometimes incorrectly call Francine "[[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Lois]]."
* The Polish video game magazine ''Secret Service'', issue April 1998. In one article, the author claimed that ''Wacky Races'' is a crossover show where "Hanna-Barbera characters such as Yogi, Huckleberry and the Addams family" do racing. Either the author didn't see even one episode of the show, or (more likely) he has seen it, but mistook Blubber Bear for Yogi Bear and the Gruesome Twosome for the Addamses. Or maybe he just got it confused with ''[[WakeRattleAndRoll Fender Bender 500]]''.
** Speaking of ''Wacky Races'', Jerry Beck, a renowned animation historian, claims in his book ''The HannaBarbera Treasury'' that ''ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' "featured the Ant Hill Mob as her chief rival", when they were in fact her protectors on the show.
* DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines was referred to as ''Stop That Pigeon'' (its theme and original working name) so frequently that ''Yogi's Treasure Hunt'' lampshades it. In the episode "Yogi's Heroes," Dick and Muttley capture Snooper and Blabber and torture them by making them watch old ''Dastardly & Muttley'' cartoons.
-->'''Snooper:''' Oh, no! Not ''Stop That Pigeon''-type cartoons!
-->'''Blabber:''' Our brains will turn to mush!
* The Canadian TV provider Bell [=ExpressVu=] used to describe ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' as, "Two teens live as though it is the 1960s even though they are 21st century teens!" The only good thing about this description is that the awkwardness of the sentence structure distracts you from the head-scratching description.
** That's probably because "If Arthur Schopenhauer had written ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest''" wouldn't make sense to most of the viewing public.
* During ''AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'''s initial release, a package of Trix yogurt offered quiz questions about the first film. One question asked to list off all three of Jafar's wishes, but listed the answers as becoming sultan, then a sorcerer, "and, finally, a snake." Jafar became the gigantic snake as a result of his sorcerer powers, and actually used his third wish to become a genie himself.
* Once, Conan O'Brien made a reference to how [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender "Avadar" Aang and his bison Appa]] (pronounced like Apple with an ''a'' on the end) had to break out of an iceberg to save the world. [[RuleOfFunny Then he compared it to Sarah Palin breaking out of Alaska]].
** It's rare that you have a reviewer who is tasked exclusively with watching a show fail completely. IGN's ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' reviewer Tory Ireland Mell actually did fail that badly. Her [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/892/892248p1.html legendarily bad,]] [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/891/891520p1.html unprofessionally written,]] [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/889/889548p1.html spoiler filled,]] [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/892/892136p1.html completely ignorant review]] of the season 3 episodes was so bad that comments on the reviews lack of skill forced her to watch several episodes before the finale, [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/892/892539p1.html the review of which still had all of the same issues]], only more glaringly magnified, as it covered the two-hour finale. In highlighting the CriticalResearchFailure, we find that this reviewer:
## Didn't watch the ''first episodes'', otherwise she'd know Katara was the only Waterbender in her family.
## Completely missed the episode covering Bloodbending.
## Has no idea that the show develops other characters regularly.
## Has never seen Zuko vulnerable before (so... she has never seen seasons 2 or 3)
** Another reviewer claimed: "He's supposedly the only one skilled in manipulating all of nature's basic elements. But he isn't. A rival shares his powers."
** Newspaper articles on the movie adaptation, based on the popular "anime." Jesse [=McCartney=] says it was "explosively huge in Asia." It is also not a good sign when the ''director of the film adaptation'' refers to ''Avatar'' as an "anime"...
*** The movie stars the [[AntiVillain eeeeeeeevil]] Prince ''[[http://www.necn.com/Boston/Arts-Entertainment/2009/02/03/Dev-Patel-to-play-Zucko/1233659470.html Zucko]]'', no less. The news anchor in that same video describes the show's plot as involving "the epic battle between the Fire and Air Nations." [[LastOfHisKind Air "nation"?]]
** On the anime part, it has been released in parts of Asia but isn't nearly as popular there.
* Much of the print material based on ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' (such as the comic books) used the show's name when directly referring to Yakko, Wakko and Dot, who were always called the Warners and never the Animaniacs in the show. Even some Kids' WB! spots (such as the preview special ''Welcome Home, Animaniacs!'') made this mistake.
** It was on ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'', too. The answer was "On the Warner Bros. lot tour you can see the water tower that this cartoon trio calls home." The contestant responded "Who are The Warner Brothers and Warner Sister?" He lost. They gave it back to him after the commercial, with Alex Trebek professing that he hadn't known that; he learns something new every day.
* Another Kids' WB! thing: In a promo for "Crazy Takes" ("bloopers"), a scene from ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' showed Ratso wearing a Hsi Wu mask, but an announcer said, "Ratso, that's not your spot! That's the demon sorceror His Wu's spot!"
** All of which might've been averted by using hanyu pinyin instead of Wade-Giles (though "Xi Wu" is no easier to pronounce—the X represents a sound very few Indo-European languages have—"Xi" is less likely to be mistaken for "his").
* The original VHS cover of ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown]]'' stated that Charlie Brown was trying to buy a present for [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen the little red-haired girl]], when in the actual special, it was in fact for a completely different character named Peggy Jean. This was most likely caused by the fact that the special depicted Peggy Jean as a redhead rather than a brunette as she was in the strip.
* A DVD bonus feature for ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' says the terrorist organization HYDRA was founded shortly after World War II, instead of ''during'' the war. This feels especially jarring since the fact CaptainAmerica's first episode showed Allied soldiers fighting HYDRA agents but [[NoSwastikas not Nazis]] became one of the show's biggest controversies, and one of the episodes on the DVD features the Avengers trying to prevent the terrorists' leader from creating an alternate universe in which they won WWII. This very same episode plays in the corner for the duration of the bonus feature.
* In an animation encyclopedia's entry on ''TheRaccoons'', Cyril Sneer is called a "pink wolf." (A sidenote oddly then mentions that he "looks like an aardvark." Well duh!)
* An issue of Weekend magazine said that, in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode ''Treehouse of Horror X'', Maggie was the daughter of [[BrotherSisterIncest Kang and Kodos]] rather than Kang and Marge.
** Kind of a double-offender, considering not only did they get the information wrong, but the title of the episode, too. It was ''IX'', not ''X''.
*** On the subject of ''The Simpsons'', a book about the show was full of little mistakes that most fans would have known better than to print:
**** The book claims Maggie killed a man. Maggie shot a man, but Mr. Burns is still alive.
**** Marge's sister Patty is gay, not Selma as stated in the book.
** Sky's listing for the episode "A Hunka Hunka Burns in Love" (paraphrased) - "Mr. Burns hires Homer as a fortune cookie writer to prove a point." That's all wrong - while [[HalfwayPlotSwitch the first act]] was about Homer in that position, it's completely forgotten about after a while to make way for the title plot. Also, it's a Chinese restaurant that hires Homer to write fortune cookies, not Mr. Burns - later in the episode, however, Burns hires Homer as his "wingman" to go out on dates with him and Gloria. Oh, and what the hell is that about "proving a point"?
* There's an alternative ending to the first [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner Road Runner]] cartoon that the Latin American press is raving about, claiming that the ending was funded by a Japanese millionaire who was tired of the Coyote always being the ButtMonkey. The frame rate is obviously a drop from the real footage, the animation is basically a cut-and-paste of the Road Runner and Coyote's poses rearranged and assembled, and there's gratuitous use of [[OminousLatinChanting O Fortuna]]. But the kicker has to be the Coyote holding up a sign with the name of the new ending's creator on it for absolutely no reason. How the news media have ''not'' picked up on these is inexplicable.
* Translation of a Swedish TV-guide's blurb about ''DannyPhantom'': "In the past Danny was a shy child who was hardly noticed. But suddenly one afternoon, when Danny unfortunately burned down his parents' lab, he became a super hero." Er, at least they got the name right?
* Let's take a trip back to the [[TheNineties early-to-mid 1990s]], when MoralGuardians were up in arms about ''BeavisAndButthead''. Not only did [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Hollings South Carolina Senator Ernest Hollings]] infamously refer to them as "Buffcoat and Beaver" (later referenced on the show), the three-part documentary about the series ("Taint of Greatness") revealed some parents thought there was an episode where the boys set a cat on fire. One can only assume one mother caught a glimpse of the episode where they ''paint'' Mr. Anderson's cat and set his ''hedges'' on fire, completely mis-saw what happened, and told her friends about it.
* The WesternAnimation/SouthPark Studios synopsis for "City Sushi" claims that "The boys want to help Butters find out what's really happening to him", but the main four boys don't do anything in this episode; this episode focused solely on Butters. This is especially damning because South Park Studios is the ''official website for the show and its creators''. Whoops.
** Collider.com's review for the Blu-Ray release of ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' said that it was Cartman's mom, not Kyle's, that leads a moral crusade against Canada.
** RichardDawkins commented on the episodes that featured him, saying that he wishes he had a better voice actor. Every episode of the show begins by saying that all celebrity voices were impersonated...poorly. That was obviously part of the joke.
* Sky, a British satellite TV provider, currently claims that [[TheMarvelousMisadventuresofFlapjack Flapjack]] was 'raised in a bubble'... right. This probably had root in an understandable typo: he was raised ''by'' a whale ''named'' '''Bubbie'''. Someone probably just misread "raised by Bubbie" as "bubble" and went from there. Then again, Flapjack ''did'' sometimes reside in Bubbie's mouth... so AccidentallyAccurate?
* A Mexican movie magazine did a report about San Diego Comic-Con, which, apart from treating the comic geeks attending it with various levels of contempt got a picture of two girls cosplaying with this caption "80's fever: Mario Bros. princess, is still in fashion", the movie the girls in the picture were actually cosplaying... ''Film/{{Enchanted}}''. Which at the time had not even been out of theatres for a year.
* Netflix is pretty bad about this, especially when it comes to [[AnimationAgeGhetto animated films and programs]] (see also the Anime example).
-->"The WesternAnimation/TeenTitans are a motley crew of five teenagers, each one gifted with a superpower to put to good use. Robin the Boy Wonder is the default leader of the troupe, which roams the planet to protect it from those who aim to harm it and its citizens. But on their days off, they still have to deal with the typical problems that plague teenagers, such as making good grades and forming friendships at school!"
** Really funny/sad, since there was ''never a single episode'' that showed the characters outside of their secret identities or at school. [[spoiler: The last episode does show Terra restarting her life by going to school and making friends]], but this was her first appearance in years.
** Robin is just a well trained human. So much for "each one gifted with a superpower".
* Here is their description for ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'':
-->"Set after the events in ''Episode II: Attack of the Clones'', these animated entries in the ''Star Wars'' sagas follow the adventures of the Jedi knights, including Anakin Skywalker -- who draws ever closer to the dark side -- and his master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. As the Jedis and Princess Padmé fight to preserve the Republic and defeat the Separatists, they face off with deadly foes such as Count Dooku and General Grievous."
** First off, Jedi is both plural and singular. There is no such word as "Jedis".
** Secondly, "Princess Padmé"? Padme was a Queen in Episode I, but by the time of the Clone Wars she isn't even royalty anymore. She's a Senator. She's referred to as a Senator several times in the show.
** Thirdly, Obi-Wan isn't Anakin's Jedi Master anymore. Although Anakin ''was'' still Obi-Wan's Padawan in Episode II.
* Besides blowing things ''way'' out of proportion in regards to Disney's efforts to revamp Mickey via ''EpicMickey'', this [[http://www.newyorker.com/humor/2010/02/01/100201sh_shouts_rudnick New Yorker]] article calls [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Porky Pig]] a Disney character.
* A box of ''SpongeBobSquarePants''-themed fruit snacks claims that Squidward plays the accordion. He plays the clarinet.
** [[http://www.gamespot.com/gbc/action/spongebobsquarepantslotls/review.html This review]] of a ''[=SpongeBob=]'' video game calls Sandy a chipmunk and Mr. Krabs the mayor of Bikini Bottom - respectively, they're actually a regular squirrel and the proprietor of the Krusty Krab restaurant. On a somewhat less blatant note, it indirectly calls Squidward a squid (he's actually an octopus).
** [[http://royalwedding.aol.com/2010/11/23/rude-childrens-TV/ This article]] says that [=SpongeBob=] once handed Patrick soap and told him not to drop it. He actually did this to his pet snail '''Gary'''. The same article also spells Chuckie from ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''' name wrong.
* The box for ''KimPossible: [[TheMovie A Sitch In Time]]'' describes a plan by "Shego and her evil henchmen". Though she's Kim's EvilCounterpart and nemesis and [[spoiler:conquers the world in the BadFuture, making the villains work for her]], Shego is the sidekick of Kim's ArchEnemy, Dr. Drakken. Also, Drakken is even dismissive towards her in a way he usually isn't in the series.
** Some sources misspell the title as A '''Stitch''' In Time, apparently unfamiliar with Kim's CatchPhrase.
* [[http://www.allmovie.com/work/phineas-and-ferb-lawn-gnome-beach-party-of-terror-465170 This Allmovie.com summary]] of the ''PhineasAndFerb'' episode "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror!]]" calls the stepbrother main characters "twins." Not to mention, the majority of that author's other summaries for the show just glisten with this trope, including misspelling [[MadScientist Doofenshmirtz's]] name, calling the boys' band a BoyBand, and claiming that anyone who sings "Happy Birthday" to Doof will become hypnotized. [[FacePalm Nice one]].
** That last bit was probably the writer's misinterpretation of the thumb-wrestling episode, where it actually ''is'' Doofenshmirtz's birthday and he invents a hypnosis inator.
** "Doofenschmirtz" is an incredibly common misspelling, so much so that it actually appears in the official Disney encyclopedia.
** DisneyXD in the United Kingdom seemingly can't decide whether Phineas and Ferb are brothers or best friends.
** [[http://www.metrolyrics.com/simp-lyrics-black-eyed-peas.html This lyrics page]] for the PhineasAndFerb song Squirrels in my Pants (S.I.M.P) incorrectly states the Black Eyed Peas did the song, when it was actually 2 Guys n the Parque who did it.
** Many descriptions, including an old one from Netflix Instant ("Phineas and Ferb stay one step ahead in hiding their crazy inventions from their mom, and making sure their bratty sister has the worst summer ever!") [[note]] The current one reads "Phineas and Ferb invent, scheme and stay one step ahead of their bratty sister. Meanwhile, their pet platypus plots against evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz," which, while not totally accurate, is technically correct.[[/note]] , describe the boys as being a deliberate AnnoyingYoungerSibling to Candace or purposely hiding what they do from their mom, which is blatantly not true.
** Netflix refers to Roger Doofenshmirtz as being elected "governor" in their "Hail Doofania!" summary, whereas he is actually elected mayor in that episode.
* DVD Verdict's review of ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' calls it the first computer animated movie in the DisneyAnimatedCanon, even though ''two'' CGI movies immediately preceded it, and Disney produced a [[Disney/{{Dinosaur}} CG/live-action hybrid]] even earlier. Becomes even more [[CriticalResearchFailure critical]] by the fact the body of the review includes a link to an article about Disney's ''actual'' first all-CGI movie, ''Disney/ChickenLittle''.
* The Disney XD Web site for ''{{Jimmy Two-Shoes}}'' refers to Lucius as the mayor of Miseryville. This is an understandable mistake, however, as [[MegaCorp Misery Inc.]] runs the town anyway.
* IGN's review of the ''LadyAndTheTramp'' Platinum Edition DVD lists that the DVD contains two versions of the film: one animated in [=CinemaScope=], and one with characters and details re-arranged for Academy screens (which are shaped more like squares), offering "a sort of unofficial history lesson for folks who are interested in cinema's technological history." However, if he read the back cover more carefully, he would have noticed the DVD actually contains ''Lady and the Tramp'' in [=CinemaScope=] --its original, unedited format-- and Pan and Scan. Instead of including the specially-modified version (which would have had to be restored too), Disney simply cropped the picture for people who can't tolerate black bars on 4:3 TV sets. So much for learning about technological history.
* Take a look at [[http://www.amazon.com/Mickeys-Magical-Christmas-Snowed-House/dp/B002MCI98Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1287948093&sr=1-1 Amazon.com's editorial review]] for the ''HouseOfMouse'' Christmas DVD, provided by Tami Horiuchi. It contains this statement: "Mickey tries to brighten Donald's glum mood by screening one of his favorite Christmas stories, ''MickeysChristmasCarol''. When '''Donald sees himself as Scrooge (literally)'''..." Anyone who has actually seen ''Mickey's Christmas Carol'' can immediately tell what's wrong with that sentence (it's Scrooge [=McDuck=] who's playing Scrooge, not Donald!).
* You'd think that having distinct personalities and costumes would make the Toon Patrol weasels exempt from this, but apparently to some people, if it's a weasel and it's Disney, they're "the weasels from ''[[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Roger Rabbit]]''".
* [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17129_7-badass-cartoon-villains-who-lost-retarded-heroes.html This]] ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' article states that Duke Igthorn from ''AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' wiped the Gummis out single handedly and reduced their number to the main six. It's firmly established that the rest of the Gummis fled overseas long before the series began, the protagonists hid underground to the point where they're considered myth, and Igthorn didn't discover them until the first episode.
** The same article implies that Tirek from ''MyLittlePony'' was a recurring villain, despite him only appearing in the pilot, ''[[MyLittlePonyTVSpecials Rescue at Midnight Castle]]'', in which he was destroyed at the end. Though this may be just a case of them not changing the subheading, "Who was he '''constantly''' losing to?" that they used for the other six. A straighter example is the sentence, "The little ponies, pegasus and unicorns make their home in a valley there called Paradise Estate." The valley is called Dream ''Valley'', the ponies lived in Dream Castle - Paradise Estate was not introduced until [[MyLittlePonyTheMovie the movie]], and Unicorns and Pegasi are still considered ponies, just not ''Earth'' Ponies.
* The official Hungarian description to ''{{Bionicle}} 3: Web of Shadows'' claimed that the villainous pair, Roodaka and Sidorak, are Makuta. While the name Makuta ''does'' refer to a whole race of beings, within the context of the movie, there was only one Makuta, with Roodaka and Sidorak being his servants. In the defense of whoever wrote or mistranslated the description, though, the movie leaves a ''lot'' of story-points horribly vague, so watching it wouldn't have helped much.
* German TV programmes advertise ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'' episode "Duel of the Droids" as Count Dooku having a duel with Asajj Ventress and giving her the mission to kill Anakin Skywalker. In reality this is a complete summary of a 3-minute episode from ''StarWarsCloneWars''. Such summaries exist for episode 1 and 4 to 8. One wonders how they could do a false summary, two correct ones and they a bunch of false ones again.
* The Sky TV guide's summary for ''ElTigre'' claims that El Tigre is Manny's secret identity. Anyone who actually watched the show would know that it's not a secret.
* One of the cards in the Disney version of ''TrivialPursuit'' shows a picture of Disney/{{Cinderella}} losing her slipper shortly after marrying PrinceCharming, and asks what time it was when the scene occurred. The card says the scene occurred at midnight, even though Cinderella actually got married at noon. Apparently, someone mistook this for a picture of the ball.
* For some reason, people tend to confuse Dumb Donald from ''WesternAnimation/FatAlbert'' for Mush Mouth, a mistake that was once made in a SaturdayNightLive sketch as well a scene in BoondockSaints.
* NickJr, in its advertising for ''WonderPets'', once referred to Linny as a hamster. Linny is a guinea pig and this error has itself been LampShaded on the program itself. This sort of mistake isn't uncommon for eBay listings of merchandise of this character either -- a couple listings even refer to her as a ''hedgehog''.
* An in show example in ''KingOfTheHill''. Where Bobby is interested in reading a fantasy action book in "Full Metal Dust Jacket", Hank takes it away from him because he believes it is an effeminate book due to the main character on the cover is a woman and the line he read out of context was about dandelions and someone crafting her breast plate.
** It also didn't help that Bobby has picked out effeminate things in the past. Also the random quotes he would take out of the book seriously did not help his case.
-->'''Bobby:''' And in the book that is called 'Justice of the Unicorns'."
* On the Sky TV guide, one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is called "Meter Maid" instead of the actual pun title "Meter Made".
* [[http://cloudkicker.50webs.com/RantShack/ND/NDindex.html This reviewer]] constantly calls KickButtowski's mother Denise instead of Honey, even in his review of the episode where her name is revealed.
* On a few TV listings for ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'', Miss Finster is described as being the gang's fourth-grade teacher. She's actually only the monitor for recess and lunch (and later becomes their ''fifth''-grade teacher), while Miss Grotke's their fourth-grade teacher. Considering that the latter doesn't appear often in promotional material, this mistake had to be made sooner or later.
** A few summaries for the series say that T.J. is "the brains" of the group. In the show, he's really only this when it comes to his schemes. [[BookDumb Otherwise]]...[[TheDitz not exactly]].
** Walmart's online listing for ''WesternAnimation/RecessSchoolsOut'' lists it as ''[[ColonCancer Recess: The Movie: School's Out]]''
** A few listings for the show have claimed that it was created by Creator/KlaskyCsupo. While the show's creators, Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere, are former K-C employees, K-C did not create ''Recess''.
** Some websites say that the show originated from DisneyChannel. ''Recess'' premiered on ABC.
** Sky's TV listing for "Bonky Fever" stated that Gus didn't want to give up his favorite childhood toy. In the episode itself, it's Mikey, not Gus.
* On Amazon.com's listing of ''InvaderZim'' episodes, three titles are mislabelled:
** "GIR Goes Crazy and Stuff" became "GIR's Gone Crazy and Stuff".
** "The Sad, Sad Tale of Chickenfoot" became "The Sad, Sad Story of Chickenfoot".
** "Battle of the Planets" became "Battle of the Planets [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom of Doom"]].
*** [[TropesAreTools Not that the last one is a particularly bad name...]]
* Take a look at [[http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/518K-17Z6aL._SL500_AA300_.jpg this box art]] for a re-release of Volume 1 of ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''. There are two errors on it [[TheyJustDidntCare that anybody who's watched the series would notice right away]]- one, the Robotnik design is the one from ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' instead of ''Adventures'' and two, the logo on the side is also from the Sat AM show.
** [[FridgeBrilliance The distributor decided to use the Robotnik from the darker series in order to sell more AoSTH DVDs.]]
* A Hungarian TV guide description for the show ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' appears to be asserting that the titular Transformers are weapons used by the Autobots and Decepticons, when of course they themselves ''are'' the Transformers.
* IMDb's ''Rated A for Awesome'' credits mistakenly call ''Mr.'' Twitchy "Twitchy Abby" because of a typo in the credits of one episode where the comma between Twitchy and Abby (both voiced by TabithaStGermain) is missing.
* Creator/TheHub's [[http://www.hubworld.com/batman/shows/the-animated-series Web site]] for ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', lists the story of Dick Grayson for {{Robin}}, except that the Robin displayed on the site's picture is actually Tim Drake, who has a different origin, and who became Robin after Dick left to become {{Nightwing}}.
* Some Web sites claim the ''StuntDawgs'' were stunt "dogs". They're actually humans with a pet dog named "Human".
* A summer holidays advert ran on Cartoon Network UK in 2012 referred to ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' character Lumpy Space Princess as 'Lumpy Space'. Presumably this was confusion over the title of the episode 'Trouble in Lumpy Space', which the network airs frequently. Less understandable was a promo shortly afterward for new episodes of ''Redakai'', which called one of the main characters 'Bloomer'.
** Seemingly caught later that same year when the ad was used for repeats on sibling network CN Too, with Boomer correctly said this time.
* Many TV descriptions for WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball always refer to Gumball and Darwin as friends, despite the fact they're non-biological brothers, though this is barely brought up in the show they do live in the same household.
* In the WebVideo/TVTrash review of ''WesternAnimation/GrandmaGotRunOverByAReindeer'', Rowdy C stated that Phil Roman "created every [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends ''Garfield'']] TV show". However,''WesternAnimation/TheGarfieldShow'' (which was already airing on Creator/CartoonNetwork before the review was posted), was not made by Roman. He apologized for this when he reviewed said show with The Comic Strip Critic.
** Speaking of Garfield, the Canadian [=Zap2It=] listings omit the word "The" from the title of the ''U.S. Acres'' segment "The Impractical Joker", and calls "Fortune Kooky" "Fortune Cookie". [[note]]The correct title, "Fortune Kooky", is supposed to be a misspelling of "fortune cookie".[[/note]].
** Mark Evanier himself made this mistake twice. "Temp Trouble" was about Aloysius Pig joining the cast. [[note]] The episode does involve Aloysius, but Mark forgot to mention Aloysius giving out demerits, and Roy Rooster and Wade Duck trying to get rid of him. Mark made it seem like it's all about Aloysius permanently joining them, when he was only in three episodes.[[/note]] and said that the whole ''U.S. Acres'' cast learned Double-Talking in "Double Trouble Talk."[[note]]Only Roy Rooster learned to do it in the actual episode.[[/note]]
** Amazon lists "The Discount of Monte Cristo" as "The Discount of Monty Cristo" and "Kiddie Korner" as "Kiddie Corner". It's well worth noting that the latter mistake is made '''a lot''' on pages about Garfield and Friends, and those pages also sometimes spell "Kiddie" as "Kiddy".
** The Big Cartoon Database is '''really''' bad about which characters appeared in U.S. Acres. They think that The Weasel, Orson's brothers Mort, Wort, Gort, Wade's cousin Fred Duck and Edward R. Furrow appear in every episode of U.S. Acres. They also think that Aloysius Pig appeared in "Thing In The Box"[[note]] He doesn't appear, however, [[spoiler:Nermal]] makes a cameo[[/note]], and that Imogene Coca played a character on U.S. Acres. [[note]] She played the Fairy Godmother in the Dogmother trilogy of the Garfield segments. [[/note]] The only episode whose cast list they got right was "Temp Trouble".
** [=IMDb's=] summary of Kiddie Korner states that the cast was doing Shakespeare at the beginning of the episode. They were actually doing ''Literature/DoctorZhivago'', which is by Boris Pasternak, not Shakespeare!
** One ESL worksheet for the episode "Short Story" called Power Pig "Howard Pig".
* The TVGuide description for qubo's ''VeggieTales'' is "Bob and Larry receive letters from kids". And that description is only half of what the actual show is about.
* [[http://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/Hanna-Barbera_Studios/P-R/The_Pac-Man___047__Little_Rascals___047__Richie_Rich_Show/The_Little_Rascals/index.html The Big Cartoon Database]] lists "Stimey" [''sic''] as one of the characters in Hanna-Barbera's series of ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleRascals''.
* For some reason, [=IMDb=] thinks that the main voice actors in ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub'' were Nick Bakay and Richard Steven Horowitz (aka Norbert and Daggett in ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers''). Neither man is in the show's credits, and anyone with a good ear could tell you that the title duo of ''Flub'' is voiced by Creator/TomKenny and Creator/ScottMenville. These errors also show up in Jeff Lenburg's ''Encyclopedia of Animated Cartoons''.
* Mick Martin and Marsha Porter's ''Video Movie Guide'' gives incorrect information regarding the direct-to-video special ''Bugs Bunny's Lunar Tunes''. It says that it includes ''The Hasty Hare'', ''Hare-Way to the Stars'', and ''Mad as a Mars Hare'' in addition to clips from ''Duck Dodgers and the 24th and a Half Century'', but the special actually doesn't contain ''Mad as a Mars Hare'', and while it is correct that the special only has clips from ''Duck Dodgers'', it also only has clips from the other cartoons mentioned (in fact the special also has clips from many other cartoons). The book also lists the date as 1977 but the special is actually from 1992, and incorrectly refers to Chuck Jones as the sole director (while he did direct most of the cartoons featured as clips, he didn't direct the linking footage, which was directed by Nancy Beiman). The description actually applies to the rarely-seen ''Bugs Bunny in Space'', which is odd since that special has never been released on video or rebroadcast.
* The ''WesternAnimation/DangerRangers'' episode "Chem Gems" did this in-universe during the song "Don't Touch That!". In the song, they state that Creator/{{Socrates}} accidentally drank hemlock when he was actually [[FelonyMisdemeanor given it to drink because of the death penalty he got for corrupting the youth and making false gods]], and that Romeo's death in ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' took place at the balcony, when it actually took place inside a tomb.
* The Facebook page for ''WebAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' posted a photo captioned: "Happy #[=WolfWednesday=]! Could we interest you in this beautiful white wolf pup?" [[http://cdn.attackofthecute.com/June-10-2012-08-05-32-3657009529e65126c316b.jpg The image they posted]] showed an arctic fox.
* Netflix strikes again! The description for ''RegularShow''s "Jinx" says: "In what could be well be the most powerful public service annoucement about the dangers of jinxing, '''Mordecai''' gets jinxed. And it does not go well." It's actually RIGBY who gets jinxed. ('''By''' Mordecai, no less.)
* Harry Warner, one of the Creator/WarnerBrothers, once said of [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes their cartoon division]], "The only thing I know is we make Mickey Mouse." (They didn't, WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse is and always has been a Creator/{{Disney}} property.)
* The NRA [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2014/06/03/simpsons_gun_episode_the_cartridge_family_was_kind_to_the_nra_but_they_didn.html condemned]] the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode "The Cartridge Family" as anti-gun even though it depicts the NRA members in the show as such strong advocates of responsible gun usage that they kick Homer out when [[RecklessGunUsage he shoots the cap off his beer bottle]] at a meeting. The staff wondered if they had even watched the show.
* According to "The Monty Python Encyclopedia" ''PinkyAndTheBrain'' is about "a grumpy mouse and his odd circle of bizarre friends" (it's actually about an EvilGenius mouse and his CloudCuckooLander lackey scheming to take over the world). They also list the episode that Eric Idle guest starred in as being from 1995 -- it actually aired in 1998.
* There used to be a very vocal group on the IMDB discussion boards who claimed that "{{Creator/Dreamworks}} rips off {{Creator/Pixar}}" when in fact all the "examples" they quoted were of pairs of movies (e.g. ''{{WesternAnimation/Antz}}'' vs. ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'') which had almost nothing in common other than that they (1) were CGI animations, (2) had similar protagonists and (3) came out at around the same time (which can be accounted for entirely by the fact that there are fashions in movie scriptwriting as in everything else, hence also the rash of disaster movies in the early [[TheSeventies 1970s]]). (One thing those commentors evidently failed to grasp was animation lead time; it just isn't possible to crank out a high-quality, feature length animation in short order.) One particularly dumb example was that ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'' was supposedly "ripped off" from ''{{WesternAnimation/Ratatouille}}'' despite the fact that the former is actually an Creator/AardmanAnimations film (Dreamworks only distributed it) hence is a poor choice for anyone wanting to prove anything about Dreamworks; and (2) the ''only'' thing the two have in common is that both have rodent protagonists -- [[SarcasmMode hardly a unique selling point in animation]] (one could just as logically claim that "''Ratatouille'' ripped off (insert title of random Mickey Mouse cartoon here)").
* Talking of ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'', one of the above idiotors claimed it to be "inferior" to ''{{WesternAnimation/Ratatouille}}'' because "the fur detail isn't realistic". Never mind that the house style of Creator/AardmanAnimations is {{claymation}}, so ''Flushed Away'' was done in simulated claymation; so of course the fur detail wasn't realistic -- it wasn't meant to be.
