Roller Disco - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When Jackie and Fez are doing their Roller Disco routine, it becomes very obvious that doubles are used for many of the routines. Fez does a lot of his own stunts but Jackie does very few. While they do a decent job of hiding the stunt doubles, there are several times when you can see the faces of the doubles and it is obvious it is not Mila Kunis or Wilmer Valderrama. And you do not need slow motion or stop action to see the difference.

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.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kelso enters Jackie's room (the second time) when she is sick, she throws the teddy bear at the door.

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.
