** And ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode [[StrawFeminism "Equal Fights"]], citing that the subject of feminism is too strong for a children's cartoon show. Ironically the audience think they handled it very well.

->"The cartoons you are about to see are [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece products of their time]]. They may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices [[FairForItsDay that were commonplace in American society]]. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros. view of today's society, [[NeverLiveItDown these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created]], because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed."

\n* Neil Ben has commented on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjQmfyC1PMI&t= The Engine Inspector's review]] of the ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' episode, "[[Recap/ThomasTheTankEngineS15E17WonkyWhistle Wonky Whistle]]", an episode that he wrote and is often considered the worst episode of the series. In his comment, he explained that he was amazed that he got recognized for it, but still finds it a real shame, since the script he wrote looked very different to the final product, and he has done some pretty good things in his career before and since.

* Speaking of Ren and Stimpy, the ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' ''Adult Party Cartoon'' episode "[[Recap/RenAndStimpyAPC1x02RenSeeksHelp Ren Seeks Help]]" was so utterly ''bad'' that even Ren's voice actor disowned it.

* British actors Richard Ayoade and Kayvan Novak are said to be rather uncomfortable talking about the voice work they did for Channel 4's ''Full English'', a short-lived adult cartoon that was supposedly intended to be a British competitor to shows like ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and is widely considered one of the worst cartoons ever made. Channel 4 themselves are said to be quite keen on [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain forgetting it ever happened]].

(TV critic Ian Hyland claimed it was called ''Full English'' because ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' could have it for breakfast.)

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' creator Butch Hartman (as well as most of the crew) have actually ''apologized'' for the episode "It's a Wishful Life" due to the sadistic treatment of Timmy and its ''really disturbing'' FamilyUnfriendlyAesop.

* PBS and the crew behind ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' now seem to feel this way about the Season 12 episode "Room to Ride" and the Season 13 episode "The Great [=MacGrady=]," as both prominently feature former cycling champion Lance Armstrong as a guest celebrity (which has long been a norm for the series); in the wake of the doping scandal that saw Armstrong stripped of all of his Tour de France titles, both episodes have rarely been rerun on television as a result.
** Made worse by the fact that the latter episode focuses on a major character in the series dealing with their struggles against cancer, which Lance Armstrong himself suffered and eventually overcame.

* *''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'':
** "Arthur's Big Hit" is one of Marc Brown's least favorite episodes, due to its BrokenAesop and D.W. not being punished for destroying Arthur's model airplane.

** They likewise weren't fond of the fourth season of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' which was commissioned without it's creator, Aaron [=McGruder=], at the helm. Leading to a ton of character {{Flanderization}}, OOC moments and outlandish plots that even the fans of the series thought were too stupid for this show. As such they ''rarely'' rerun it and most of the time, go back to the first episode after the finale of season 3, "Its Goin Down", which was intended to be the true finale of the series anyway.

** In a recent interview, they also feel ashamed of the way they portrayed Gary Condit and the Ramseys in "Butters Very Own Episode", after both parties were proven by DNA evidence to be innocent. That Patsy Ramsey died shortly after the episode aired didn't help its case one bit.

** Recently, The Splat re-aired three episodes of the series during the weekend of October 8, 2016, as part of their celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Nicktoons brand that year.

* Screenwriter Buzz Dixon has [[https://buzzdixon.com/home/christianity/how-much-responsibility-do-i-bear written deprecatingly]] about his involvement with a SugarBowl show called ''The Little Clowns Of Happytown'', which was so hampered by MoralGuardians and ExecutiveMeddling that not only were they not allowed to have any comic violence, they weren't allowed to have any conflict at all. If they wanted a clown to get a pie in the face, for instance, it couldn't be thrown by another clown; they had to have it set on the ground and let a clown accidentally trip and fall onto it.
-->"Beyond any shadow of a doubt, the show was an abomination in the eyes of God and man. We shall speak of it no more."
