    I disagree with the statement that Acme products were defective. Actually the products did work exactly as they should have. The use of the products was defective. For instance, the rocket skates accelerated at a tremendous rate but Wil E Coyote didn't take into consideration the curve of the road or the cliff or etc. But the products themselves were terrific, wish I could get me some.

      In fact, ACME was an acronym for "A Company Making Everything," which of course it was in the Looney Toons universe.

      …and don’t forget ACME Building Disintigrator used in ‘One Froggy Evening’ by the guy who discovers singing Michigan J Frog in the future, it worked pretty good.

    What, no Binford Tools? Not only was the brand integral to Home Improvement, it made a cameo in Tim Allens other 90s project, Toy Story.

    Well…. ACME Does exist. My family owns an office supplies store and we sell ACME for decades!!!

    most common knew are stapplers… there are literally thousands of companies that uses the word ACME in their names, but the one i talk about is knwon since the 70's.

    Errr… ACME does exist (or at least did exist), my dad used to work there, they made those plastic stripes you use to close boxes, and I have ACME cups, notepads and more office stuff at home from those days, so either there´s some missinformation here or my Dad was actually a russian spy with a fake office, fake paper and fake business cards to back up for his fake job.

    Along with Big Kahuna burgers you should have included Tarantino’s other fictional brand, Red Apple cigarettes. The brand, notable for its pack with a green worm in the apple, has also appeared nearly every one of Tarantino’s flicks, especially “Pulp Fiction”.

    Brawndo is obviously supposed to be a sports drink ala Gatorade, NOT an energy drink like Red Bull.

    Arnold correctly pointed out to the kid in Last Action Hero that there are far more than 10,000 numbers that begin with 555 when you consider area codes.
