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 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. - TwitchandVinegar

2 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" - TwitchandVinegar

3 Twistory - The Fairly Oddparents

The episode was extremely stereotypical towards the British. - TwitchandVinegar

4 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. - TwitchandVinegar

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

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

6 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. - TwitchandVinegar

7 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. - TwitchandVinegar

8 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. - TwitchandVinegar

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

Communist is cancerous to your eyes.

It was because of Epileptic children. I see why this was not on my T.V. But luckily, I don't have Epilepsy.

9 The Rex - The Amazing World of Gumball

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

10 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. - TwitchandVinegar

The Contenders

11 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 creepypasta...

This is a myth - epictoonsfan1

12 The Phantom Blood Movie - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

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

13 Rude Removal - Dexter's Laboratory

It's because of Cussing!

You Know, For Kids!

14 Dona Cruz's Island - Mobile Suit Gundam 0079
15 Hot Springs Planet Tenrei - Outlaw Star

Because of nudity

16 Best in Marf - Robot and Monster

So that's why the show was cancelled

17 Dead Bart - The Simpsons

I saw was really weird and random.

18 Enough is Enough - The Loud House
19 One Beer - Tiny Toon Adventures
