Everything from rudimentary reasoning skills to the very basics of how governments and economies actually work. Also, if it happened after WWII it has fallen down the memory hole.
Do you get similar stuff on your side of the pond? Something like, "The Iron... who?" from people who should know better?
Today the Smurfs are generally seen as a wholesome, right-on eco-friendly bunch - but back in 1970s Britain they advertised petrol for BP (which was then full of lead) - the petrol stations also gave away Smurfs to kids who were in their parents cars, then ended up trying to save costs by outsourcing production to Hong Kong - where lead paint was still used, leading kids to get a *double* dose of lead...)

Perl is friendly and fierce
Perl all problems shall pierce

Perl is far from trite
Perl is all things beautiful and bright
Perl is a magical sight
Perl each day and each night
