* The UK version of ''Series/FraggleRock'', with the Captain and his lighthouse instead of Doc and his workshop, has only 12 episodes known to still exist. Because the production company ([=TVS=] produced the UK elements) has changed hands several times and production rights can't be sorted out, they cannot be broadcast or released again anyway. That's why when ''Fraggle Rock'' was rerun in the UK, the episodes were the North American segments that featured Doc rather than the Captain.

* The UK version of ''Series/FraggleRock'', with the Captain and his ''Series/FraggleRock'' featured wraparound segments set in a lighthouse and featuring Fulton Mackay as the Captain, a retired sailor (replaced, after Mackay's death in 1987, by John Gordon Sinclair as his nephew P.K. and then Simon O'Brien as his son B.J.), instead of the workshop segments with Gerry Parkes as Doc and his workshop, seen in North America. Many of the tapes of the UK wraparound segments were wiped; an effort led by ''Fraggle Rock'' fan Alex Taylor has only 12 episodes known to [[http://www.nightshade.org.uk/fraggleuk.html confirmed]] that of the 96 episodes, 29 still exist.have surviving official copies, 58 only exist as off-air recordings (of variable quality) by home viewers, and nine are partially or completely missing. Because the production company ([=TVS=] produced the UK elements) has changed hands several times and production rights can't be sorted out, they cannot be broadcast or released again anyway.

* In the United States, only nine of the thirteen episodes of ''Reunion'' were aired on FOX before it was abruptly cancelled. The others are viewable on [=YouTube=], but there is still an incomplete story as the series was supposed to be a 22-episode mystery.

* Several episodes of ''Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro'' have not been rebroadcast on WWE Classics when they would have otherwise been shown. At least one episode (originally aired June 9, 1997) was unfit for broadcast due to audio problems on the master tape. Other episodes have been heavily edited or omitted entirely due to Wrestling/ChrisBenoit[='s=] prominent appearance; WWE essentially made Benoit a [[{{Unperson}} non-person]] after his murder-suicide. WWE has since announced that it will include Benoit footage on its Web-based WWE Network when it launches in February 2014, but with a prominent viewer advisory before each streaming.

* The Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} original movie ''Film/CryBabyLane'' (aired the night of October 28, 2000) was deemed so scary that it was never re-aired or released on home video. Strangely, for many years the network denied its existence, leading many to wonder if the entire thing was some kind of elaborate CreepyPasta. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrBjM8mTib4A The full version has been found]] and uploaded to Website/YouTube, however, and TeenNick finally re-aired the movie on October 31, 2011 as part of its late-night block ''Series/The90sAreAllThat''.

*** Episode 24, "How Not to Be Seen", had two such cuts made. The first was to John Cleese's line about "tactless references to leprosy and terminal cancer" [[note]]Episode 19, "It's a Living", very conspicuously dubbed over a similar line with a reference to gangrene[[/note]], while the second was to a brief animated segment at the end of the "Crackpot Religions" sketch featuring Jesus and two thieves nailed to telegraph poles, followed by the ground opening to reveal an AlterKocker Satan (the broadcast and home video versions instead cut straight from the "Cartoon Religions" vicar to the beginning of "How Not to Be Seen", although a few frames of it appear in the "recap" at the end of the episode). The footage of both cut segments has been found, but it only exists in low-quality black and white.

* The television adaptation of ''DrKildare'' starring Richard Chamberlain had one, which was unique in that it may have been the first [[{{crossover}} crossover episode]] in TV history. The pilot for the MGM psychiatry drama series ''The Eleventh Hour'' (1962-64) was produced and intended to air as a 1962 episode of ''Dr. Kildare'', but after initial test screenings, the episode was {{recut}}, removing all scenes and references of Kildare and Gillespie. The newly edited version was then aired as the premiere episode of ''The Eleventh Hour'': "Ann Costigan: a Duel on a Field of White." The uncut, original episode of ''Dr. Kildare'' was never aired or publicly seen until 2013, when it was released on DVD as a bonus feature on Warner Archive's ''Dr. Kildare: The Complete First Season''.

* Another prominent victim of the BBC's practice of tape-wiping was ''Series/TopOfThePops''. Most early episodes were wiped by the BBC only four complete episodes exist from the 1960s (one and most of another with the presenter's links mute), and the show's archive only exists in full from 1977 onwards. Even then, episodes featuring disgraced presenter Jimmy Savile have been removed from the rerun rotation. Some of them can be found on YouTube.

** The drama anthology ''BBC Sunday-Night Play'' aired from 1960-1963. Of 138 episodes, only 15 survive. Notable among the missing is the story ''Madhouse on Castle Street'', which had the young Music/BobDylan ('''!''') as a kind of GreekChorus, commenting on the action through song (including one of the first major public performances of "Blowin' in the Wind"). Especially strange is that it wasn't junked until 1968, by which time Dylan was, you know, [[{{Understatement}} sort of famous]].
