** The pilot episode "Help Wanted" was not included on the Season 1 DVD release due to the use of the song "Livin' in the Sunlight, Lovin' in the Moonlight" by Tiny Tim. Later DVD releases included it.

** A legitimate lost episode, entitled "Man's Best Friend", would have aired in 1992, but did not, due to an incredibly violent scene in which Ren beats his and Stimpy's new owner, George Liquor, within an inch of his life with an oar. It did not air in the United States until Spike TV aired it as part of the ''Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon'' series in 2003.

** For years there were rumors circulating that the original pilot episode of the show existed somewhere. A workprint of the halfway-completed pilot episode featuring the character dialogue albeit lacking sound effects and music was screened by DIC to representatives of Creator/{{ABC}} when [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the concept was pitched to the network]], who ultimately turned it down and requested DIC come up with [[WesternAnimation/SonicTheHedgehog another concept]]. While the original concept ended up becoming ''Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog'' and was placed into syndication, the pilot itself was never finished, with parts of the pilot recycled for later episodes (including a notable part where Dr. Robotnik tries to crush Sonic with a giant weight, which was used as the series' closing credits). Nobody could manage to find the workprint for years until it eventually appeared on the internet, courtesy of lead animator Milton Knight, and was uploaded on YouTube.

** Episode #27, "When Mother Brain Rules", is missing from "The Complete Series" DVD set because DiC Entertainment did not provide the master tape to Creator/ShoutFactory. Given that it was merely a ClipShow, this move may be justified.

** [[UrbanLegendofZelda Supposedly]] there were a number of Minerva Mink shorts that never got released due to excessively risqué content, though given the content of the only two Minerva Mink shorts that exist, one has to wonder exactly why the network let those through. If one pays attention, it also becomes very evident they clumsily edited out her cleavage in most scenes but in other scenes her cleavage is still slightly visible for a frame or two.
** A lesser example of a missing ''segment'': Episode #55 has a wraparound that, for some reason, isn't on the DVD or on contemporary TV airings.

* After November 2016, the US feed of Cartoon Network pulled the ''Series/TeenTitansGo'' episode "Serious Business" from re-runs for unknown reasons. The episode has also not been shown in the United Kingdom since its premiere due to the country's Cartoon Network not being quite too fond of episodes focused on characters having [[PottyEmergency potty emergencies]], a fate that's also lead to episodes of ''Anime/YoKaiWatch'', ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' with similar plotlines to be pulled or rarely aired.

* While UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation doesn't have it ''anywhere'' near as bad as the films of the silent era, there's still some problems with it occasionally popping up. The good news is that the bulk of the publicly screened theatrical cartoons of the day still exist in some form, and several companies such as Disney, MGM, Warner Bros. and even the Creator/{{Columbia Cartoon|s}} library have had their libraries restored, with only a handful if any flat out missing episodes (tragically, their handful of Barney Google shorts were deliberately destroyed due to a contractual obligation with King Features--only snippets of silent b&w dupes of one of the films is known to exist). Even the [[VanBeurenStudios Van Beuren studio]] and Terry Toons have virtually all of their sound films still existing in some way. The bad news is that this is definitely not the case with industrial films and commercials of the era, such as the films of the Jam Handy Studio and the shorts of the army based First Motion Picture Unit. On that note, many of the big studio cartoons have had their original titles removed in reissues, even having new titles spliced into the original negatives—this is the case with many of the WesternAnimation/BettyBoop and WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes shorts.

** Seth [=McFarlane=]'s personal dislike (he's referred to it as the show's least funny episode) of "Fore Father" has resulted in it rarely, if ever, being shown in reruns.
