Anachronisms 

In the opening credits, you can clearly see many modern cars. The most obvious is a '97-'02 Ford Expedition that passes the cast on the passenger side.

The poster showing world flags in Eric's room has some flags of countries that didn't exist in the 70s (e.g. Estonia and Georgia).

Several times in the series when donuts are present, they are in a Krispy Kreme box, but Krispy Kreme donuts did not come to Wisconsin until the 2000's.

A large number of the other props and products used on the show are not consistent with the period (flip-top drinks cans, barcodes on toys, etc, etc) or are not represented accurately (Betamax VCRs that could record too much material on one tape, etc).

In the opening scene of the premiere episode, the boys are looking at a Playboy centerfold, circa 1976. However, the magazine is perfect bound, not saddle stitched (stapled) as Playboys were at that time.

The stereo on top of the bookcase in Eric's basement looks like one that would have been made in the 80's or even the early 90's. Definitely not one that would have been made before or in 1976.

Continuity 

In the Show, Eric turns 17 years old in 1976, placing his birthday in 1959. However, the crew doesn't graduate High School apparently until 1979, placing all of the characters at 20 years old at time of graduation

In some episodes, characters use an insulting term, dillhole. However, the term dillhole was coined on the TV series Beavis and Butthead during the 90's.

Factual errors 

Throughout out the series (esp. during the last seasons), it's clear that most of the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers (or young people) themselves someone they can look up to.

Miscellaneous 

It would be possible for the Forman's address to be 416 Marie Drive with the Pinciotti's at 853 Marie Drive and still be next-door neighbors, if it was the result of a street expansion.
