** While the Nazis indeed persecuted dissident Christians and tried to Nazify Christianity (apparently planning on wholly replacing it with an Aryan religion later if they could), they didn't switch out Bibles for ''Mein Kampf'' and crucifixes with SS daggers as is shown here, nor simply vandalize churches wholesale.

However some similar things were done, such as removing "YHWH" inscriptions as they were deemed Jewish, or one instance where crosses were replaced with swastikas. The latter caused such protests however that it was quickly reversed.


** In "Special Edna", Mrs. Krabappel assigns a research paper about World War I. Which her students apparently know very little.

* The ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' theme claims the fairy tale the movie was based on is at least as old as time. Scientists estimate the universe is at least 13 billion years old, so the story is at least 13 billion years old, or older, if time existed before the beginning of the universe, assuming time has a definite beginning or age that can be measured in linear terms. Nor can the story simply be "timeless," as the song implies the story is ancient in a primordial sense, far older than current estimates of the story being at least 4000 years old.

* ''Disney/EducationForDeath'':
** A Nazi official comes to Hans' parents house saying they have to not coddle him anymore when he's sick, or the state will intervene. In reality, while people with disabilities were indeed killed, the Nazis weren't stupid enough to go after children just for being ''sick'' (that would have left them with fewer future soldiers, if nothing else).
** The whole segment where ''Literature/SleepingBeauty'' is being retold with Hitler as the Prince waking up Germany under the presumption that this is the way it's "being told under the New Order in Germany" has no basis in reality.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinofroz}}'' has many historical inaccuracies for a show that takes place in prehistoric times. The two biggest ones are that humans and dinosaurs did not exist in the same time period, and dragons did not exist ''at all''. This show is obviously running on RuleOfCool though.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', with an example ''not'' covered by the RuleOfFunny: in the Presidents Song, the Warner siblings inform that Woodrow Wilson brought America into World War I in 1913.

Moreover, the war itself is covered via titles listing the battles of Gallipoli, Argonne, the Somme, and Verdun, only one of which (the Meuse-Argonne Offensive) America actually started''.took part in.
** While singing about Zachary Taylor, the video actually displays a portrait of fellow (and rival) general and Whig party nominee Winfield Scott.
** Seeking rhymes, Ulysses S. Grant is described as a man who'd "scream and rave and rant while drinking whiskey although risky 'cause he'd spill it on his pants," even though he was notorious for being TheQuietOne and his alcoholism was grossly exaggerated.
** Although "Teddy Roosevelt charged up San Juan Hill" is probably the most iconic moment of TR's life, it and the Spanish-American War in general happened several years ''before'' his presidency.


** "Road to the Multiverse" makes the utterly incorrect HollywoodHistory assumption that it was Christianity that caused the Dark Ages. And while there have been multiple times were Christianity has attempted to trump on knowledge there are multiple other (non-religious) causes for the Dark Ages, and much of our knowledge of science and philosophy were preserved by Catholic monks, and the Catholic Church openly willing to support science and learning throughout this time and the renaissance. Also in this episode, they also assume that Creator/WaltDisney was an anti-semite despite him hiring and working with Jewish employees, none of which have said that he showed any kind of hatred or bigotry.

** In the Lil' Hitler sketch, the first nation (or student's desk) annexed by Hitler is Poland, followed by Czechoslovakia. This should have been the other way around; and Austria isn't even brought up. Japan also seems to lack any of China's desk. In addition, the USA is portrayed as "Not my problem!" until Japan knocks over his juice; by December 1941, America had already been providing supplies for the British and Chinese.
