Most Controversial Cartoon Episodes


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Beauty and the Beach From Pokemon

It was the Japanese version of the episode that garnered the most controversy. - egnomac

22 Buffalo Gals from Cow and Chicken

Got banned for portraying the Buffalo Gals as lesbians. - egnomac

As weird as the show is already, it isn't surprising to see this episode on the list.

23 Daffy the Commando from Looney Tunes
24 When You Wish Upon a Wienstein From Family Guy

The whole "I need a Jew" song. That wasn't the only thing. This episode was so offensive Fox refused to air it for two years

25 Blue Cat Blues from Tom and Jerry

It ended with the two of them committing suicide

Tom and Jerry commit suicide by trying to get run over by a train - Ajkloth

26 The Ducktators from Looney Tunes

Main character is Hitler as a duck. - egnomac

27 Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q from Family Guy

This episode disgusts me with its portrayal of domestic abuse.

28 Seahorse Seashell Party from Family Guy
29 Leap Frogs From Rocko's Modern Life

Although nearly every single minute of this show (including this episode) was pure animation gold, I'll admit that this one in particular was disturbing. However, "Camera Shy" was more controversial in my opinion due to the pornographic film of Rocko walking down a staircase naked (followed by an obvious masturbation innuendo).

30 See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey from The Powerpuff Girls V 1 Comment
31 The Splinter from SpongeBob SquarePants

Behold! One of my worst SpongeBob nightmares. I like SpongeBob, but why did the creators have to throw in something so disturbing? Every little detail of how SpongeBob got the splinter, blood and pus, then we watch Patrick put garbage over it to infect it. Gross. When PhantomStrider reviewed it, I covered the screen of my phone with my hand. I hate "The Splinter". - redhawk766

32 Camera Shy from Rocko's Modern Life

No, that's not the creepy part. The creepy (and hilarious) part is that his best friends were actually hiding outside his window, EAGERLY filming it without his permission. - xandermartin98

Apparently, the episode depicted Rocko walking downstairs, naked.

33 Catatonic from The Mighty B!
34 Fresh Heir from Family Guy

Peter Marries His Son, Enough Said. - kcianciulli

35 Coal Black and De Sebben Dwarfs from Warner Brothers

I think it's the most controversial cartoon. Its offensive considering all the extremely racist stereotypes it has, but at the same time the cartoon was kind of the creators' way of celebrating African American music.

I think the creators wanted to make a "modern" spin on the classic Snow White tale, and seeing as how jazz and stuff was big, and some people found black culture, or at least what they thought was black culture, cool, they decided to go with that.

So its not entirely racist, and may have good intentions, but I can see why its offensive and really is very controversial.

Disney had won the Snow White lawsuit against Warner Bros. Entertainment. - playstationfan66

36 Bleep from Arthur

I didn't get it at first, but then I realized what the episode was about.

37 The Hunger Strike From The Boondocks

Got banned for portraying the B.E. T network as an evil organization bent on the destruction of black people. - egnomac

38 To Love a Patty from SpongeBob SquarePants

Watch the clams part and you'll see what I mean.

39 The Return of Slade from Teen Titans Go

It's a total ratings trap, but at least it wasn't disturbing.

Oh-Kay... How In Any Way Is It Controversial?

40 Rock-a-Bye Bivalve from SpongeBob SquarePants

Depictions of homosexuality since SpongeBob and Patrick pretended to be parents especially when SpongeBob played the MOTHER!
