12 Inaccuracies In The 'That '90s Show' Version Of The 1990s
Vote up the most amusing 1990s anachronisms.
Hello, Wisconsin! If you are hanging out, down the street, watching That ‘90s Show on Netflix, you’re probably already nostalgic for the days of Tamagotchis and Koosh balls. While the show gets many things right about the last decade before the new millennium, a few inaccuracies also exist.
Making a period piece is challenging, and even more so as a set decorator whose audience lived through that time. Many people remember what old potato chip logos looked like and when certain movies came out, so mistakes with these could be glaringly obvious. Fortunately for That ‘90s Show, its predecessor had the same problem - That 70’s Show also made errors in terms of continuity to the time period.
Here are a few slip-ups that slipped through the cracks on That '90s Show!

A Pringles Can Features A Modern Logo
Similar to the other product placement in the show, the Pringles can pictured is a lot more modern than it should be. The 1995 logo was rounder, giving it a 3D effect; in addition, the mustachioed mascot looked straight at you and had hair on his head.
Pringles replaced him in 1996 with a more flat-looking design and did away with the endearing rosy cheeks. The hairless version on That '90s Show can is from the logo introduced in 2021.

A Lambeau Field Stadium Addition Was Pictured, But Wasn't Completed Until 2013
It's hard to miss the framed photo of Lambeau Field that hangs behind Leia at The Hub in episode 5. However, the 1995 version had an iconic perimeter that's missing from the picture. This is clearly a black-and-white photo of today's field, which was renovated in 2013.

Cool Ranch Doritos Are In 2013 Packaging
Doritos have been a staple in American homes for decades. However, the packaging you see in That ‘90s Show wouldn’t be what you'd see at your friend's house during the decade. That's the current logo introduced in 2013.
The 1995 one would be rectangular with the neon triangle chip in the upper left corner.

Video Haven Rents Out 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park,' Which Isn't Released In Theaters Until 1997
Another inaccuracy in Video Haven's new releases section is The Lost World: Jurassic Park. The sequel to Jurassic Park hadn't even begun filming yet. Production picked a filming location in 1996, and the film was released in May of 1997. The VHS version came out in November of that year, so it obviously wouldn’t be in Video Haven in 1995.

Netflix Used The 2015 Milwaukee Bucks Logo
The current logo for the Milwaukee Bucks basketball team is visible in The Hub's main dining room. Instead of the distinctive purple-and-green buck's head logo used in the 1990s, we see a green pennant.

Ozzie Wears A Modern 'Phantom of the Opera' Shirt
The version of this Phantom of the Opera sweatshirt Ozzie is wearing in the third episode is actually the modern iteration. The 1990s version had a rose by the title and the mask was smaller. This newer one came into production after the musical’s 25th anniversary.
