* Episodes 200 and 201 of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' only aired on their respective premiere dates (the latter of which didn't even get a Pacific Time re-broadcast, and didn't even air at all in some territories). [[AppealToForce Responses]] from radical Islamic groups convinced Creator/ComedyCentral to pull any future publishing of the episodes, as well as the Season 5 episode "Super Best Friends", which also featured Mohammad as a character despite predating the controversy by 9 years. "201" and "202" have been completely removed from the [[RegionCoding Region 2 and Region 4]] DVD sets, but they exist deep in the corners of the internet with no download required, while "Super Best Friends" is still available on old DVD copies of Season 5. Chances of any of the three episodes being re-released in the near future is slim-to-none.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePJs'' was in limbo for nearly a decade due to ownership spats (both Disney and Creator/WarnerBros claimed ownership, the latter of which due to Creator/TheWB [[UnCanceled un-canceling]] the series after a two-season run at FOX). Warner Bros. eventually agreed to sell its portion of the series to Disney, giving them full ownership of the ''PJs'' property, setting the stage for a DVD release in 2011.

Added DiffLines:

* The British cartoon ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'' only saw the first six of it's 52 episode series released onto DVD, and even on VHS, only the first season (bar "Megattack") and a handful of Season Two episodes saw release. The United States fared even worse only getting ''one'' VHS as proof of existence there. Come 2014, Monster Entertainment announced plans to release the entire series online, though only six episodes thus far have been released. Even worse since Monster also pulled the plug on most of Youtube's fan uploads of the series due to copyright, narrowing sources down even more.
* It's sister series ''WesternAnimation/BimblesBucket'' fares even worse, getting only a single VHS of a handful of episodes. Monster Entertainment also bought the rights to the show, though given how far they've got with ''The Dreamstone'', nothing has even been announced of ''Bimble's Bucket''.

** None of the specials celebrating the anniversary of ''A Charlie Brown Christmas'' and/or the first ''Peanuts'' comic have received a DVD release, and only one, 1990's ''You Don't Look 40, Charlie Brown'', has even reached VHS. ''It's Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown!'' (2015) became the first ''Peanuts'' special to win an Emmy in 25 years, but the only thing available from it is the ''Cake Wars'' episode where contestants made cakes for it.
