Show generally

Factual error: In the intro theme, most of the cars in the background are newer then the set time period. About halfway, you see an at least 1997 Ford F-150 pickup drive by the left windows, not manufactured yet.

Show generally

Factual error: Episode 7-2, "Let's Spend the Night Together" After Kelso gets the call that his girlfriend's water had broken and runs out of the room, Fez answers the phone. In the background there are several license plates on the wall, one of which is an Indiana "Amber Waves of Grain" design, which was first issued in 1993.

Other mistake: How did Donna take the SATs with the rest of the group if she was going to a different school? She is even wearing her catholic school uniform.

Show generally

Factual error: At the start of every episode we see the gang driving. Cars in the background are not from the 70s but the late 90s. For instance, the truck that comes up beside them at the end is a 90s Ford F150.

Factual error: Eric has diecast model cars in his bedroom; those were not around then. The ones he has weren't available until the 1990s.

Whole Lotta Love - S5-E16

Fez: Having sex with someone you work with is horrible. I don't know how Donny and Marie do it.

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.
