Everybody Loves Casey - S4-E26

Factual error: The gang keeps referring to the theme park 'Great America' as "Six Flags." Up until the 80's the park was actually Marriott's Great America. There is no other Six Flags theme park in the area. - from Wikipedia "Marriott Corporation began construction on the park in 1974, and opened it in 1976 as "Marriott's Great America". In 1984, the park was purchased by Six Flags Corporation, becoming the 7th Six Flags park."

Trampled Under Foot - S5-E21

Thanksgiving - S1-E9

Factual error: The scene where Kitty is making peanut butter celery for Thanksgiving appetizers; she is using Skippy brand peanut butter and the packaging is not from the 70's, it's the current packaging.

Class Picture - S4-E20

Factual error: During the episode, it goes back to 1968 and in the closing credits Eric is listed as being 7. However, he can't be because in 'Eric's Birthday' it was 1976 and he had turned 17. Thus in '68 he would have had to be 8 or 9 (depending on his birth) but certainly not 7.

It's All Over Now - S7-E15

Factual error: Sizzling Sara is doing her live radio broadcast in front of a rack of magazines. One of the magazines is a Robin comic book. The series of Robin comics that used that logo began in 1993, 14 years after the episode takes place.

Who Are You - S6-E15

Factual error: In this episode, when Donna and Jackie are arguing about who is going to go outside, Jackie is seen holding a box of Chips Ahoy cookies. The logo seen on the box was used in the late 90s and early 2000s, rather that the logo used in the 1970s.

00:17:30

Romantic Weekend - S3-E16

Factual error: When Mrs. Foreman gives Fez and Hyde Snack-Packs after they are caught trying to steal beer, they are in clear plastic containers. From 1968-1984, Snack Packs were in aluminum containers. From 1984-1990 they were in plastic containers, but not clear ones. It was not until 1990 that Hunts introduced the clear plastic containers.

No green lightsaber toys were produced until after the release of "Return of the Jedi", which occurred in 1983. Moreover, the handle is the modern style, not the vintage.

Trivia

The show was originally titled "Teenage Wasteland" or "The Kids are Alright" but those were songs by The Who and, legally, Fox couldn't get permission to use them. They renamed the show "Feelin' Alright" to show the focus groups. However, nobody really liked the name. After the focus groups airing, the audience were heard saying they really liked that show about the 70's or that 70's show - and the name stuck.
