They did it on porpoise.  In the popular 1960s TV show "Flipper," the animal used to play Flipper was actually a porpoise, not a dolphin. The producers tried several dolphins, but found them uncooperative and difficult to train. When you are watching reruns of the show, notice how often the director alternates between a scene of the kids in the boat talking to Flipper (without Flipper in the picture) to one of Flipper in the ocean (without the kids in the shot). Because a porpoise is much smaller than a dolphin and digital manipulation was still years away, it was necessary to preserve believability by insuring that the human characters were never in the same frame as the porpoise.

A Major Typo!  The Heisman Trophy was actually named after NFL quarterback Joe Theismann. However, when the trophy was being cast, a designer erroneously assumed that THEISMANN was intended to be
"THE HEISMAN." By inserting a space and dropping what he thought to be a duplicate "N," the trophy was christened "The Heisman Trophy."
