  1. Doc Brown never said Jigawatt. He was actually using the US pronunciation for Gigawatt which uses a soft ‘g’ which happens to sound like a ‘j’. Just like how giant doesn’t sound like giggle. If you read up on it you will find that the pronunciation was established in the 60’s. Both pronunciations are deemed correct.

  2. The Honeymoones was a TV show from the 1950’s starring Jackie Gleason, I’m not sure why this site references a movie made in 2005 that was made 20 years after the original Back to the Future movie

  3. The Honeymooners was a TV show from the 1950’s starring Jackie Gleason, I’m not sure why this site references a movie made in 2005 that was made 20 years after the original Back to the Future movie

  4. There are several mistakes. Some big. 1 of which is, Dangerous Bob on the side of the school does not refer to Bob Gale, but to asst. Prop master Dangerous Bob.

    Ralph Machio was NEVER offered the part of Marty, but did read for it.
