So i was looking checking IMDB for more info on Stefan Karl Stefansson (Robbie Rotten) and other cast members of "Lazy Town" when I noticed an error. For some reason the episode:

"The Lazy Rockets" is listed as (2016) in their profiles. But this is false, the episode was aired 2007. Checking around and looking at the info on the episodes page it also says 2007, So I don't understand it is causing this error in the database.

How is this strange error caused, and how do we fix it?

Is there any way you can provide a screengrab or the URL of the pages where you see this information?

HI Gunnar, thanks for reaching out. Please keep in mind that the year next to the show on a person's name page refer to the beginning year of the show, not the year of the individual episode.

That doesn't seem to be the issue.

The episode only has a 2007 date:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1278206/

But it is displayed here with a 2016 year:
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1559611/

The series end year is also listed as 2016 even though no episodes seem to be listed for that year.

Yes, and the release date on the episode is correct. It says 2007. How it could be 2016 is baffling. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1559611/
