Continuity mistake: When Kitty comes downstairs to give the gang cookies, she tells Eric that she picked out an outfit for him to wear on career day. He then turns and mouths the words "Help me."

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. (00:05:10 - 00:06:05)

Prom Night - S1-E19

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."

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 cardboard containers with a tin bottom and a tin pop top. From 1984-1990 they were in plastic containers, but not clear ones. It was not until 1990 that Hunts introduced the clear plastic containers.

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)

You Shook Me (1) - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode "You Shook Me", Jackie is talking to a drunk Kitty who is putting mini umbrellas in Jackie's hair. The first shot of her doing this, she puts a green umbrella on the right side of Jackie's head. After Kitty asks for more umbrellas, the shot changes to Jackie which now has a pinkish, red umbrella on the right side and two green ones on the top.

Over the Hills and Far Away - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When the girls go to Marquette the signs say 'GO GOLDEN EAGLES', however before the mid-1990's Marquette's nickname was 'the Warriors'.

Eric Gets Suspended - S2-E9

But two shots later when Hyde is seen smiling and sipping his soda, you can see Donna's hair on the left side of the shot as if she was still sitting where she was before. (00:03:00)

Going to California - S5-E1

Kitty Forman: Oh good God, you kids switch partners more than square dancers!

More quotes from That '70s Show

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.
