* The ''Series/TheEricAndreShow'' episode "T.I. / Abby Lee Miller" initially aired with a TV-PG-L on Adult Swim, bewildering those who take notice of such things, as every other episode of the season had been rated TV-MA and there was no less mature content then usual. A few weeks later (after already appearing on On Demand with the PG rating), it was rerated TV-MA-LS.

* Canada's 14A video rating is widely applied to home video releases of TV series and can be found on family-friendly shows that have aired with a PG in the US, all the way up to sexually-explicit series that have aired with a TV-MA in the US.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is rated TV-14 on Adult Swim, but TV-MA on DVD (probably because all the bleeped cursing is uncensored). However, many popular episodes like "Rixty Minutes" (which has a parody of Garfield dropping many [[ClusterFBomb f-bombs at Jon]] and the Lucky Charms Mascot getting his entrails ripped out by zombie kids) and "Look Who's Purging Now" get by with a TV-14 rating. The only episode with a TV-MA rating is "Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate", likely due to the subject matter (Jerry must donate his.. er, special male body part... to save a dignitary).

Added DiffLines:

* When Toonami aired four of Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's film for its ''Month of Miyazaki'' event, most of the films featured were given appropriate ratings based on their content; ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' was rated TV-14-V, while ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' and ''Anime/SpiritedAway'' were rated TV-PG-V. However, ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' was oddly given a TV-Y7-FV rating, despite being violent enough to recieve a TV-PG-V easily. This may or may not have been a mistake on part of the network, however.

Added DiffLines:

* Australian children's network Creator/{{ABC3}} has aired several anime which were rated M on DVD with a PG rating, such as ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'', ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', and ''Manga/VampireKnight''. The only one that's been edited among this is ''Madoka Magica'', and it was edited for language rather than the violence which actually got it an M rating on DVD.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' has two separate listings for a "mega pack" in Nova Scotia's ratings database - one is a PG, the other is a 14A. They were rated six days apart, and are identical in length. Leaves one wondering which one would actually be enforced if you bought this mega pack in Nova Scotia.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'' got its rating decreased from Older Teen (16+) to Teen (13+) upon Viz acquiring its license after Tokyopop's demise.

* Over in the United Kingdom, ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episodes on DVD are uncut and rated anywhere from a U (meaning that it's safe for all ages, containing little to no content that may be upsetting or offensive) to a PG certificate (meaning that it may contain some content that may be upsetting or offensive to younger/more sensitive viewers, usually those under seven years old) for things like rude humor, mildly offensive language, scenes of characters being threatened, fantasy violence, and sexual innuendo (which, if you think about it, is pretty much the reason why American TV would give this show a TV-PG rating, despite it not airing on Cartoon Network's Creator/AdultSwim line-up). The "Holly Jolly Secrets" two-parter (you know, the episode that revealed how the Ice King lost his mind and hurt the only woman he ever loved when he put on the crown he has on now), however, was given a U rating for "no material likely to offend or harm" while over in America, the episode is rated TV-PG. Guess UK censors didn't think the scenes of The Ice King's mental breakdown were bad enough to be rated something higher (or American audiences overreacted to it).
