So, while reading the Did Not Do the Research I'm continuously reminded of a pet peeve of mine, that American's think America = the World. I don't mean We All Live in America in which a foreign country is portrayed incorrectly with the assumption that it's like America but that Americans have a habit of thinking what's #1 in the US is obviously #1 in the world.
Most notably the US is no longer the #1 film producer even though if you poll people in the US the majority of the population will think it is.
What grates my gears is records held by the Simpsons. I've seen it listed in Entertainment Weekly for god's sake as both the longest running animated show in the world and the longest running sitcom in the world when both records are held by Sazae-san. I saw the same thing in an episode of Fairly Odd Parents where Timmy is stuck inside the TV set and must battle his way through various TV shows. When he gets to a parody of the Simpsons he says the same thing "hey look, it's the show that's the longest running animated show in the world!"
It doesn't help that when you google "longest running animated series" google defaults to The Simpsons (although to be fair Wikipedia DOES say longest running animated series in America).
I would like to place them somewhere in a "Did Not Do the Research" but in all the subtropes I can't think of where it belongs. There doesn't seem to be an America is the World option.
