Top 10 Lesser Known Banned or Lost Episodes of Cartoons

There are several videos on YouTube that list banned and lost cartoon episodes. I decided to make a list of the lost episodes that are generally forgotten about.

The Top Ten

1 Twistory - The Fairly Oddparents

The episode was extremely stereotypical towards the British.

2 Unknown Episode With Sped Up Dragon Ball Z Episode - JBVO (Johnny Bravo Spin-Off)

This was an obscure Johnny Bravo spin-off that let viewers pick which cartoon episodes they wanted to air on T.V. While most of JBVO seems to be lost, the most notable episode is one where Johnny speeds up a Dragon Ball Z episode and describes what happens.

3 The Downer (Original Version) - The Amazing World of Gumball

While the episode as a whole wasn't banned, the original version was too dark and had to be significantly rewritten. This probably is why there was a hiatus before this episode aired.

I think I might know what happened in the original. Probably instead of Gumball saying he wanted everyone to leave him in peace, he said he wanted everyone dead.

What happen in this episode?

Gumball is really angry and wishes everyone just disappeared, which they do. Gumball spends the episode walking around town looking around, but everyone is gone. Supposedly, the episode had a significant re-write because it was "too dark". - Rocko

4 Tsunami Amiyumi/Surf's Up - Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi

I didn't air in the US because of the 2004 Tsunami.

5 The Phantom Blood Movie - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

It was apparently so bad that it was never released outside of theaters. - PerfectImpulseX

6 Dona Cruz's Island - Mobile Suit Gundam 0079
7 Special Ed - Ed, Edd N Eddy

I think I saw a creepypasta video of this lost episode on YouTube! It scared the heck out of me with its blood content and the characters being zombies! Is that the lost episode we're talking about? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I've read on the Ed, Edd n Eddy Wiki that there were three unfinished episodes of Ed, Edd n Eddy. However, the most notable one is "Special Ed". Apparently the creator said that "It was just too real"

8 Ready for the Bettys - Phineas and Ferb

Apparently there was a real band named the Bettys who thought the episode was mocking them. Luckily, I've heard the episode isn't banned anymore.

9 Room to Ride - Arthur

Banned due to having Lance Armstrong as a guest star and you all know what happened to him in 2012... - PerfectImpulseX

10 Cow and Chicken - No Smoking

People usually mention the "Buffalo Gals" but often forget about this episode. It's the first episode and has Chicken being addicted to smoking. The Red Guy actually then sends him to hell. It's kinda similar to the banned Tiny Toon Adventures episode.

The Contenders

11 Man's Best Friend - Ren and Stimpy

The episode didn't air on Nick because it was too violent. However, it later aired with the Adult Party cartoon.

I saw this. It felt like it should have aired on Nick. It wasn't even that violent.

12 See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey - The Powerpuff Girls

This episode never aired in the US presumably because it had communism and flashing lights. It's a great episode, though. I recommend checking it out unless you have epilepsy. It's definitely not as bad as the seizure-inducing Pokemon episode.

It is a good episode but it has flashing lights. - spodermanfan1000

Communist is cancerous to your eyes.

Me (singing): There's just too many of them for me to fight...
I don't even think that'll be alright...
Has this world learned nothing except for pain...?
Will we always live in a storm of rain... T-T

Rain...rain...go away...
Pain...pain...go away... T-T

I wish of a day where there is peace on earth...
I wish of a day where there is love on earth...
I wish of a day where there is understanding...
Oohh…..I wish...… T-T

13 Squidward's Suicide - Spongebob Squarepants

Squidward's Suicide is only a story someone made. However, it shares some similarities to the episode "Are You Happy Now? " (which wasn't banned in any way) as it infamously features suicide jokes revolving around Squidward.

This is a myth - epictoonsfan1

This is a creepypasta...

14 The Rex - The Amazing World of Gumball

I've heard the episode was to expensive too make.

15 Minnie Takes Care of Pluto - Mickey Mouse Works
16 Rude Removal - Dexter's Laboratory

It's because of Cussing!

You Know, For Kids!

17 Best in Marf - Robot and Monster

So that's why the show was cancelled

18 Busted - Braceface Busted - Braceface
19 Hot Springs Planet Tenrei - Outlaw Star

Because of nudity

20 Dead Bart - The Simpsons
