The Iron Giant picture

Factual error: In the scene where the Iron Giant is spinning the boy around in a junk car he is holding, notice that the car resembles a 1959 Cadillac...however since the film is set around 1957, this is not a likely car to be found anywhere yet, much less a junk yard. (00:46:20)

My Favorite Martian picture

Factual error: The TV station in the movie is KGSC channel 10, and the building shown at the beginning for the exterior shots is in fact Santa Barbara's TV station, but it's channel 3 and its call sign is KEYT. There is no channel 10 in Santa Barbara. In fact, the only channel 10 in Southern California is in San Diego. (00:01:45 - 00:34:45)

Smart House picture

Suggested correction: I've thought this too as this is certainly impossible of modern technology we have today. However, the theme of the house is it's a house of the future. It's capabilities make it amazing because nobody can understand how it's done. I think it's reasonable to assume that this house has technological advances that will only be available some time in the future; and I wouldn't be shocked if there's a point in the future where technology is so advanced that food can be produced in an instant.
