Trivia: One of the guys says at one point says something like "Look it's the Goodrich blimp" while looking towards the sky. This was in reference to a commercial popular in the 1980s for Goodrich tires where people would be faked out by others after being told to look up at the Goodrich blimp. The fooled one would then say "Hey, Goodrich doesn't have a blimp" after looking up and being tricked. The point was Good Year had the blimp but not Goodrich.

Trivia: Napoleon in the films is shown to have a great time at Waterloo, the water park. Waterloo is the name of the battle in which Napoleon was defeated in 1815.

More quotes from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Question: Is the portrayal of the historical figures and their respective surroundings accurate in any way?

Answer: Yes and no. The basic premises are all right; the years are accurate, and maybe the costumes. Napoleon was at war in 1805, and Joan of Arc was undoubtedly in church at some time during 1429, etc. But everything with the mysterious King Henry and his two teenage daughters in the middle ages is completely fabricated. Although there were four King Henrys during that century, none of them fit the age or family situation seen in the film.
