* When ''WesternAnimation/TheScoobyDooShow'' entered syndication in the 1980's, three episodes ("A Menace in Venice," "Don't Go Near the Fortress of Fear," and "The Beast is Awake in Bottomless Lake") were dropped from circulation. Although the reasoning for this has not been explained, some have suggested that the episodes, which were animated in Spain, were deeply despised by the higher-ups and Creator/HannaBarbera and refused to allow The Program Exchange, the show's syndicator, to package the episodes with the series. After Turner acquired Hanna-Barbera, Creator/CartoonNetwork began airing the series with the episodes reinstated.

* Seven of the thirteen episodes of ''WesternAnimation/PhantomInvestigators'' never aired in the US, as Kids' WB pulled the show after six episodes had aired due to not getting quite enough views from their desired audience of young boys (and the show never went into reruns). The remaining four episodes after "The Year Of The Snake" did not receive a US broadcast and instead premiered overseas ("The Fifth PI", "Ghosts On Film", "Thank Wad", and "Secrets Exposed!"), as well as earlier episodes "Skating The Plank", "From Egypt With Love", and "Haunted Dreams" (their only reasons for being skipped was due to Kids' WB airing the eppisodes OutOfOrder. Had the show not been pulled, they would've gotten to airing them).

** The episodes "200" and "201" also pointed out that the earlier episode "The Super Best Friends" visually portrayed Mohammed without getting in trouble. Following the backlash of "200" and "201", "The Super Best Friends" was retroactively banned (though the season five DVD made before the Mohammad debacle has the episode as it used to be).

** "Goo Goo Gas", a season five episode, didn't air in the USA until 9 months after the rest of the season (it aired on July 19, 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 ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' episodes "Leap Frogs" and "Heff in a Handbasket" were eventually banned from rerunning on Nickelodeon, the former due to sexual themes and the latter due to Satanic themes. Since the show traditionally airs episodes as two 11-minute segments, their sister episodes ("Bedfellows" and "Wallaby on Wheels", respectively) were paired with each other for reruns. The two banned episodes aired regularly on Nicktoons in the 2000's.



* Several episodes towards the end of the final season of ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' were never aired in the US.
** This includes the three-part series finale "The Wedding Frame", which was released straight to DVD in 2004, a few months after the general run of new episodes ended. At this point, six of the seven remaining episodes leading up to the finale had not aired (the seventh was a Thanksgiving episode called "Ten Chairs" that only aired once on Nicktoons during a Thanksgiving marathon). In 2006, the first of the unaired episodes ("Stuff'll Kill Ya") finally aired in the US for the first time on Nicktoons and eventually became part of the regular rerun rotation, but only on Nicktoons and not Nickelodeon. The remaining five episodes were scheduled to air within the next week but were replaced at the last minute. To this day, they remain unaired. However, they were available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon from 2013-15, and can easily be found on YouTube since they aired in other countries with no issue.
** Episode 4, "Sleep on It", was quietly pulled from the rerun rotation on both Nickelodeon and Nicktoons around 2003. The reason was never specified, but it may have been due to a scene near the end of the episode, where Hoodsey wakes up in a puddle of urine amongst a girls' slumber party. The girls all taunt him and when Ginger defends him, Courtney says that bedwetting is "disgusting". It is possible that someone felt this was either inappropriate or insensitive to children with bedwetting problems. The episode aired in other countries and was available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon. There are also comments about putting girls' bras in the freezer as a prank, another possibility of why the episode was pulled.
** Episode 35, "Ginger's Solo", was also pulled from Nicktoons within a few years, again for reasons unknown. Ginger pays a surprise visit to her summer crush Sasha only to find out he has a girlfriend named Clover. The most likely reason of this episode's pulling is that someone complained about the provocative way Clover was dressed, especially for someone who is supposed to be in junior high. The episode did still air occasionally on Nickelodeon and was available on iTunes and Amazon.

** Episode 17, "Piece of My Heart", stopped airing on Nicktoons by 2007. This may have been to reserve it for airing on Valentine's Day (although it is not directly themed towards the occasion), though it did not always (if at all) air on that day.
** Episode 35, "Ginger's Solo", was also pulled from Nicktoons within a few years, again for reasons unknown. Ginger pays a surprise visit to her summer crush Sasha only to find out he has a girlfriend named Clover. The most likely reason of this episode's pulling is that someone complained about the provocative way Clover was dressed, especially for someone who is supposed to be in junior high. The episode did still air occasionally on Nickelodeon and ''The Splat'' in recent years.
** Episode 57, "Ten Chairs" (a Thanksgiving-themed episode and also the last regular episode), has not been seen in the US since its sole airing on Nicktoons in 2004. In other countries, the episode
was part of the normal rotation.
** Despite all of the above, ''all'' episodes were
available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.Amazon from 2013-15, and fans who were waiting for the high school episodes could easily find bootleg recordings of international airings on YouTube.
