*** 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}}.

** "The Legend Of Dratini" was banned from the beginning because of a metric fuckton of gun play, including two characters getting guns to their heads and one character shooting off about [[BottomlessMagazines a hundred rounds]] at Team Rocket from two revolvers to interrupt their motto. Another reason may have been because of Meowth donning a [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]]-esque mustache for one scene. Extra fun when in later episodes, Ash suddenly has 30 Tauros we never saw him catch, because he caught them here. Also could have been trouble since this is where the gang gets to the Safari Zone they had been searching for for a couple of episodes, but luckily the previous episode just happened to feature a nature preserve that just happened to be right next door to the Safari Zone which is also supposed to be a nature preserve. It was pretty easy to edit dialogue to make ''that'' episode the Safari Zone and actually make things more logical than they were before. This episode has never been available for legal viewing in the US or any country that used the [=4Kids=] adaptation as basis.

** For the US broadcast, the penultimate episode ("Space Fortress A Baoa Qu") was never aired, because Creator/CartoonNetwork took the show off the air two 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 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'').

** 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.

* The Creator/SabanBrands dub of ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'', ''Glitter Force'', removed three episodes from the first half of the series, episodes 10, 17, 19. Episodes 10 and 17 were most likely cut due to culture references that would go over most kids' heads while 19 involved Yayoi's DisappearedDad, as death is still something of a taboo subject for Saban.
This list shows the last 10 events of 186. Show all.
