1 Death Note
Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.
The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".
How would Death Note, a show that involves a lot of, well, death, even get a dub for kids? Plus didn't the English dub air on Adult Swim for a brief time in the U.S.? So how would it even get a dub on a kid's television program when literally 99% of the show involves a fair amount of mature themes and characters in addition to some rather gruesome deaths? What would they call the Death Note? Sleep Note? Travel Note? Pocket Note? - Anonymousxcxc
Imagine how ridiculous It would sound in 4Kids The whole death note thing would be turned into some book that can make people 'fall asleep' - MLPFan

True, but I saw many videos of some of the said animes being dubbed by 4Kids, that's why I made this list - MLPFan

Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.
3 episodes, get rid of all the inappropriate bits which is the whole episode. So a completely different Anime.
Okay guys let's be realistic here: Boku no Pico from what I understand is basically hentai and while 4kids may be an infamous dubbing company (from what I can understand) they wouldn't be dumb enough to dub a hentai anime for children as it could get them into serious trouble with the law as well as having to pay lots of money to suers. - Anonymousxcxc
