* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has what appears to be an (unmentioned) in-universe example in the form of "The Big Book of [[BritishTeeth British Smiles]]" - or, according to the cover, "The Big Book [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Of of]] British Smiles".
** Additionally, the advertisement for Springfield directed towards film companies reads "Flim Springfield" - which is what convinces them to film the "Radioactive Man" movie there, as they don't need a flashy ad ''or'' correct spelling, so it must be good!

Added DiffLines:

* In one episode of ''Series/{{Spaced}}'', Sophie calls off a date with Tim because she has to work late fixing a typo on the cover of one of the magazines published by the company she works for. We're not told exactly what the typo is, but the fact that it was "Total [[CountryMatters Cult]]" magazine implies it's serious enough to warrant an urgent reprint...

Added DiffLines:

* The Hindi dub of ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'' calls one episode "Everyone Are Jealous of Nobita!", which obviously should be "Everyone Is Jealous of Nobita!".

* [[https://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/ready-jet-go/ One Australian website]] listing the Season 2 episodes of ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' spell/punctuate certain titles wrong. Some of the more ridiculous examples include "[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Dean]] Has a Cold" and "Mindy and [[SpellMyNameWithAThe the]] Carrot Bake".


* ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'' was originally "Chrno" Crusade, because Daisuke Moriyama screwed up (and allegedly his editors didn't want fans to confuse it with ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''). They fixed this in later releases, [[LampshadeHanging with the offending o highlighted in flames]].

* Website/{{Google}}, of all things, [[https://www.webcitation.org/68ubHzYs7?url=http://graphics.stanford.edu/~dk/google_name_origin.html got its name this way]]. The founders were searching for a name that hadn't been taken as a web domain yet, and Sean Anderson suggested the term for 10[[superscript:100]] (a 1 followed by 100 zeroes) could be catchy, plus suggesting a large amount of information. They checked and the domain name Google.com was available, so they promptly registered it-- only to realize later the reason the name was available was probably that the math term is actually spelled ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Googol Googol]]''. Googol.com was taken, of course, so the misspelled name stuck.

Added DiffLines:

*Pre-order copies of {{Music/Weezer}}'s 2019 SelfTitledAlbum (aka The Black Album) credit lead singer Rivers Cuomo as "Rivers Como". It especially stands out because of a stylistic choice to print the band members' names in white and make all other text black on black - Rivers' name is listed first too.


* Reese's Minis commercials refer to the product as "popable." The correct spelling is "poppable".
