* The Creator/DiCEntertainment dub of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' threw out several episodes entirely. These were not seen (legally) in the US until the uncensored, subtitled [[Creator/ADVFilms ADV]] release. Even that did not include ''Sailor Moon R'' episode 67, a BeachEpisode with no relation to the rest of the plot ''or'' the setting of the show; it has Chibi-Usa befriending a baby dinosaur on an island off the coast of (then) current-day Japan. It was claimed by an ADV representative that Creator/NaokoTakeuchi despised that episode (as did the director), and that Toei refused to license it, although the episode showed up in other countries' adaptations. (This is acceptably {{Parodied}} in [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/SMMiniMangas/SMARTEnglishDubEpisode64Omitted01.html this fanart here]].) Later, it was clarified that ADV had obtained its masters from Creator/DiC, whose materials lacked the episode. It wasn't seen legally in the US until 2015 when it was included in Viz's simulcast of the original anime.
** [=DiC=] skipped over Episode 6 because of a sequence where Usagi disguises herself as an "adult" (a skimpy outfit with an exposed midriff) in order to infiltrate an adults-only jazz club. Episodes 2 and 5 were also skipped (made fun of in these fanarts [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/ArtworkJAFanarts/SMARTEnglishDubOmitted2ndEpisodea.jpg here]] and [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/ArtworkJAFanarts/SMARTEnglishDubOmitted5thEpisode.jpg here]]), but, other than one or two scenes with easily-editable objectionable content, they were most likely skipped due to DiC wanting to burn through "solo Sailor Moon" episodes as quickly as possible.
** Episode 89 was skipped in several countries, but oddly not in the Creator/DiC dub. That and the fact that it was a clip show led many fans to think it was made by DiC, even though it was part of the Japanese run.

* The ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' dub skipped about a dozen episodes, jumping from Yusei's duel with Placido straight to the setup for the duel with Team Ragnarok and skipping over the Crimson Devil arc as well as the duel with Team Taiyo. This was followed up by 4Kids cutting the rest of the series after the duel with Aporia, meaning that the whole storyline with the Arc Cradle was cut alongside finding out who ZONE really was, and the final duel between Yusei and Jack was also removed due to this.

* The original 4Kids dub of ''Franchise/OnePiece'' skipped a number of episodes (read: nearly ''forty'') during its run on Cartoon Network. Part of this was accomplished by cutting slower-paced episodes together, but much of it was due to ''skipping entire story arcs'' to introduce "marketable" characters more quickly, leading to some truly gargantuan [[DubInducedPlotHole plot holes.]] The episodes stopped being "missing" in the US after Toei handed the series to Creator/{{FUNimation}}, who promptly got to work on making an uncut release.

* The 2007 film adaptation of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventurePhantomBlood'' could only be watched during its brief theatrical run in Japan. The film's theatrical release was cut short due to negative reactions from fans and Creator/HirohikoAraki himself, and any chances of it being released on home video were shattered after A.P.P.P. got themselves into hot water due to a scene of Dio reading the Quar'an in the ''Stardust Cruaders'' OVA. However, a university student was able to get a hold of the first 15-minutes of the film from an art professor who had connections to the studio and it is the only way to watch the film. However there is no voice acting, and most of it is in animatic form. Though the trailer for the film is still viewable and features fully animated clips with voice acting.

** Another hard to find thing about Sazae-san is a RunningGag that appeared at the end of each episode from 1969 to 1991, in which Sazae would toss a bean or rice cake in the air and would catch it in her mouth at the end of each show. The stunt was imitated by viewers. In 1990, a child choked to death doing this, and just like the Hawaii Five-0 episode "Bored She Hung Herself" (which was also banned when someone in RealLife tried to imitate the stunt shown on TV, though ''Hawaii Five-O'''s didn't involve eating tossed food), it vanished off the face of the earth, and was replaced with a rock-paper-scissors game between Sazae and the viewers at home.

* The first season of ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' lost fourteen of the sixteen episodes when first shown on Creator/CartoonNetwork, and were replaced by a single, American-only episode to pick up the pace of the storyline. The missing episodes were later shown for its second run, which was advertised as ''Dragon Ball GT: The Lost Episodes''. [[BatmanGambit It's worth noting that fanboys had been trashing these episodes since 1997, but the second they were "lost", they were in hot demand]].

* A borderline case exists with the manga ''Manga/KuniGaMoeru''. The manga, which chronicled a Japanese family in Manchuria from the late Taisho era on through the end of World War Two, included a chapter dealing with the NankingMassacre. A group of... [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement concerned citizens?]] complained that the reference photos that the artist used for depictions of the incident were inaccurate and in their opinion forgeries. This same group further... um... [[PoliticallyCorrectHistory disputes the historical accounts of the Massacre]]... and so put pressure on Shueisha, the publisher, to suspend the manga (it was later reinstated and allowed to finish) and remove the offending 21 pages from all but the original serial magazine run. If you can't find a original copy of the issue of ''Young Jump'' the uncensored version ran in or find the few pages posted on the net here or there, it is pretty much a lost episode.

** And the two-part episodes in the ''Best Wishes!'' series that would finally introduce Team Plasma. According to some previews and WordOfGod, a lot of scenes showed a city being severely damaged. Then the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami 2011 Japan earthquake]] happened, and you have to take these episodes off of the grill. The ''Best Wishes!'' series was run to its conclusion without the two-part ever airing, and TV Tokyo maintains that they will air the episodes only when scheduling permits it in the future.

Added DiffLines:

** Though, the entire Series 1 can be found online, episodes 26 and 28 are only available in Chinese. But the second half of the latter was included as additional material on the DVD box sets. Series 2 is only lacking episodes 85-99.
** Worse is the case of the Latin American dub, it covered the first three series and only one and a half episode has been found.

* Sometime in the mid 2000's an English dub of OnegaiMyMelody was aired on an unknown Asian Cartoon Network channel. The English version was called "My Melody's Magical Adventure". A clip of one episode was shown on Youtube in poor quality but is currently removed from the site.
