* Because parodies are not explicitly protected under Japanese copyright law, the first episode of ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'' (which featured spoofs of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'', ''Anime/UtaNoPrinceSama'', ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', among others) was pulled from streaming sites and the show's DVD release.

This happened again in Episode 3, where one skit was a parody of ''Franchise/{{Anpanman}}'', which caught the attention of a network executive who is a childhood fan of ''Anpanman'' and forcibly removed it henceforth.

* The DiC 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. 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, 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.

* The Hungarian, Romanian and Polish broadcast of ''TransformersCybertron'' was all about this. For starters, the pilot episode was out-right omitted from the start. The series went on until about episode 16, after which the whole thing was constantly repeated multiple times. ''Finally'', Creator/CartoonNetwork got a hold of the rest of the series, and it aired further, before all of a sudden stopping at some point during the final arc. It went on to be repeated again, this time including the pilot. However when only a handful of episodes were left, guess what? The 1 year run of the show had come to an end, meaning it had to be pulled off the screen with only the last few episodes missing. The show was never re-aired ''or'' released on DVD.

** The third episode of the new ''Black Jack'' anime was left unaired because part of the plot dealt with an earthquake, and a real earthquake struck Japan hours before it was to air, though the episode aired just a couple of years later.

** For the US broadcast, the fortieth through forty-second episodes were never aired, because Creator/CartoonNetwork took the show off the air four episodes from the end due to the events of 9/11[[note]]Though many fans suspect that this was just a convenient excuse CN used to get out of their contract when the show performed poorly[[/note]]. The final episode ("Escape") was eventually run at the end of the year as part of New Year's Evil, a special marathon celebrating the villains of Creator/{{Toonami}}, when Char Aznable was voted surprisingly high among viewers' favorite villains (even beating out long-time fan-favorite SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and only being a little behind Zechs, the resident CharClone from the more-popular ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'').

*** This is the only episode from the Pokémon franchise the producers refuse to export anywhere, even in other Asian countries, because of this incident. Some reports state that the episode was banned by the ''Japanese government''. However, according to Creator/MaddieBlaustein, Meowth's voice actress at the time, 4Kids had actually dubbed the episode. However, the producers demanded the episode be banned regardless, likely due to the controversy (or at least the fear of controversy) that even ''airing'' the episode would cause. The incident also forced them to go back and dim the flashing effects in earlier episodes.

* Episode 36 of ''VideoGame/PriPara'' was left unaired in South Korea because of it being scheduled to play on the same day the Brussells attacks happened, since the plot revolved around the idols trying to [[spoiler: revive Falulu after her sudden death]]. Due to this, the South Korean dub took a week-long hiatus and played episode 37 as the finale, skipping the last episode of season one since they might have seen it as {{Filler}}.
