That 70's Show! - Oh No! Beta!
In the episode where the gang goes to Canada for their precious brew, Red brings home a BETA-MAX video player and suggests that they tape 'Roots'. Reluctantly, Kitty agrees. After its done recording, Red goes to push play and realizes he never put the tape in the BETA-MAX. Kitty, in the background holds up a tape and says something to the likes of, 'You mean, this tape?' If you look at it, you can plainly see she's holding a comparably tiny VHS tape and not a monolithic sized BETA-MAX.

Betamax tapes were smaller than standard VHS tapes by about 1/3. The tape she was holding is correct. You may be referring to the VHS "C" tapes that fit into a converter to play on in standard VHS player. This tape would be much smaller than a Betamax tape. Go to Salvation Army, they have Beta tapes by the boatload for you to see.

The MAX in Betamax had nothing to do with the size of the tape cassette. If you want a real mistake with that episode, how about the idea that Red pressed the 'record' button on the Betamax without first inserting a cassette? On those old machines, the record button would have been 'locked out' until a tape was loaded.
