The Contenders: Page 3

41 Bleep from Arthur

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

What is bleep has to do with.

D.W. overhears a curse word from a teenage boy. She begins to fear saying it because something might get broken. The Tibble twins claim that a person then becomes a zombified slave. D.W. then tells another friend which gets her into big trouble.

42 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.

43 To Love a Patty from SpongeBob SquarePants

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

Fun Fact:
This episode was controversial according PETA.

44 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?

45 Catatonic from The Mighty B!
46 Meet Minerva from Animaniacs

It was banned due to sex references

47 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

48 Boys of Bummer from The Simpsons

Again, like one coarse meal, it tries to make suicide funny

49 Their Place from Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
50 Donna Cruz's Island from Mobile Suit Gundam
51 Rock-a-Bye Bivalve from SpongeBob SquarePants

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

52 It's Always Courtney, Courtney, Courtney! From 6teen

They play so many inappropriate cartoons for kids. Regular Show, Adventure Time, sym-bionic titan, total drama, stoked, They'll ruin their minds!

This is one of many episodes never to air here in the US. Just watch it and you will see why!

I think "Enter the Dragon" is worse than this. Read my atrocious animation on it and you will see why. - Turkeyasylum

More like adult swim

53 The Two Mouseketeers from Tom and Jerry

No literally controversial at all. The scene when Tom gets cut in half, it's hilarious. - MrEmerik2000

Why is this controversial? - MeeMeeCandy777

54 X-treme Torture from Total Drama Island

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Heather's naked breasts. Sure, they were censored, but... ugh! I'm revolted. And for being a spoiled brat, Heather deserved that, but why was this on Cartoon Network? Total Drama the show itself revolted me ever since I watched it. This was worst. - redhawk766

In my opinion, this one needs to be much higher. Especially knowing we saw Heather's NAKED breasts... - Turkeyasylum

Little kids shouldn't even be watching teenager shows. Get this show off of Cartoon Network.

How is this a kids show?!

55 Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips Looney Tunes

Makes fun of Japanese stereotypes, especially during WWII when vitriol towards them was topical then.

56 Rabbit Ears Blog from Angry Beavers
57 The Principal and the Pauper from The Simpsons

Not only did it receive a lot of hate, but both Harry Shearer (Seymour Skinner's voice actor) and Matt Groening (Simpsons creator) have disliked this episode. It also ruined Seymour by calling him the impostor of a character that never even appeared outside of the episode, and the way they got rid of him was ridiculous. - Swellow

It was a weird episode but had funny bits. Homer eating Bart's prank at the beginning the dog food, "Principal Skinner? " "Up yours children! " and getting him back.

58 The Last Roundup from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Some people considered Derpy's appearance to be an insult to mentally disabled people. - SomeRandomGuy9001

The scene was altered from it's original version.

Is Derpy a he or she?

59 Up in Smoke from Braceface
60 Busted from Braceface

Episodes about breasts are always dicey and this is no exception. In this episode, Sharon is upset because people see her as a little girl and decides to buy a pump-up bra. When at a party, her braces cause the bra to go haywire and her breasts continue to grow. It's no surprise that this episode was banned in a few countries including the United States. - raidramon0

This is a kids' show right? - Aragorn98
