** The episode [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbjnFvEbdaw "Rude Removal"]], where Deedee and Dexter go into a machine that removes all of their rudeness and concentrates it into another version of themselves, was removed for gratuitous swearing and rude gestures such as mooning and middle fingers. It's something of an oddball - they had only meant to show it off in conventions and the like as it never really was meant to be seen on TV. However, Creator/AdultSwim was able to convince them to finally air it in some manner. According to WordOfGod, it was intended to be part of the show's second season but Cartoon Network didn't approve of it.

* ''WesternAnimation/LittleBear'' had [[65EpisodeCartoon 65 regular episodes]], but once a 66th episode aired. The only information about it comes from the few viewers who saw it.

Apparently test screenings were so positive, [[ExecutiveMeddling Paramount decided to shelve the television special in favor of remaking it as a feature film]].

** "Cuffed/The Blizzard" from Season 3 was pulled from US reruns on Nick and Nicktoons by the mid 2000's, probably over concern of small children playing with handcuffs. It still aired in other countries and is available on DVD and iTunes, and TeenNick's programming block ''The Splat'' aired it on December 20, 2015.
** Because of music licensing issues with the song "Vacation" by The Go-Go's, the Season 4 episode "Vacation" was rarely aired on TV and is not available on iTunes or Amazon Instant Video. However, it ''is'' included on the Season 4 DVD.
** Due to a manufacturing error on the Season 3 DVD, the contents of the fourth and fifth discs are exactly the same, meaning the episodes that should be on Disc 5 are lost entirely, and despite being pulled so Amazon could rectify the issue, the discs are apparently still the same. The episodes in question ''are'' available on digital services.

** The VerySpecialEpisode "Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q." only aired once on FOX, probably due to its exaggerated depiction of DomesticAbuse, but it can be seen on cable syndication and on Netflix.

** "Gary Takes a Bath" didn't air until July 2003, even though the episode it was paired with ("Shanghaied") aired in March 2001. This is because "Shanghaied" was originally a half-hour special where the viewers would call in and vote for one of the three alternative endings. It didn't re-air until July 2003, with "Gary Takes a Bath" replacing the seven minutes of deleted scenes. The uncut episode can only be viewed on the First 100 Episodes DVD. Both of these episodes were banned in the UK because of the perceived high scare factor of "Shanghaied", and the prison rape joke and frightening "subliminal message girl" from "Gary Takes a Bath". Granted, it's rather tame, but it was still a lost episode there for a long time.
** "Goo Goo Gas", a season five episode, didn't air in the USA until 8 months after the rest of the season (it aired in July 2009). This is possibly because its partner episode "Le Big Switch" didn't air very commonly because of... well, Nick being paranoid over "gay" stuff. It was however aired in multiple countries before the US and released on DVD before it's US airdate.
** "The Sponge Who Could Fly", also known as the "[[BlatantLies Lost Episode]]" parodies this, and it actually does an okay job of seeming real since it's only aired once every 4 years or so.

*** The season two episode "Wormy" (aired in the US in February 2001) was banned in some countries due to the scary close-ups of the buzzing horsefly being quite frightening to younger viewers.

* Unfortunately, most of the animated shorts made during TheSilentAgeOfAnimation have become lost films due to many factors, including carelessness with the source materials, the films simply deteriorating due to age, and in some cases, the cartoons being deliberately destroyed. And even for shorts that still exist in some form, even fewer still exist in their original form.

* While 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 [[ColumbiaCartoons Columbia Cartoon]] 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 BettyBoop and WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes shorts.

* ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool'' seems to have possibly had an episode called "The Butterfly Away" that was never re-aired.
