The first episode of The Twilight Zone (1959), "Where is Everybody?", opens with a young man wandering a town square in confusion, asking himself if he is having a bad dream. This sequence not only greatly resembles Marty's arrival in the Hill Valley of 1955 in this movie, but was shot on the same Courthouse Square backlot at Universal Studios.
1985 Radio Announcer:
October is inventory time, so right now, Statler Toyota is making the best deals of the year on all 1985-model Toyotas. You won't find a better car at a better price with better service anywhere in Hill Valley. That's Statler Toyota in downtown Hill...
When Marty and Doc first go to the high school looking for Marty's parents, there are campaign banners up for someone running for senior class president. Class officers in American schools are elected in May for the upcoming school year, not in autumn after a quarter of the school year has elapsed.
The character Marty McFly is credited as a performer on the song "Johnny B. Goode". It is actually sung by Mark Campbell with a guitar solo by Tim May.
In the Brazilian dubbed version, the names of the two soft drinks that Marty asks for in the diner, are changed from "TaB" and "Pepsi Free" to "Coca-Cola" and "Pepsi", since both TaB and Pepsi Free weren't available in Brazil.
