** Few of the original shorts from ''The Tracey Ullman Show'' have seen official release, nor have any of them ever been rerun on TV outside of documentaries.[[note]] The ''Simpsons'' VHS boxsets from the late 90's ''did'' contain a few of the shorts; in fact that was one of the sets' selling points.[[/note]] Creator/MattGroening feels embarrassed for them because it's so crudely drawn and the jokes are just simple, basic cartoony stuff.

** They likewise weren't fond of the fourth season of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' which was commissions without it's creator, Aaron [=McGruder=] at the helm, leading to a ton of 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 the 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.

* For many years, Disney was also deeply ashamed of ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', a film that performed so horribly upon release that it nearly killed their animation department. And that's not even getting into the troubled production that saw it go through multiple edits to make it more palatable for audiences unfamiliar with [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfPrydain
its source material]]. A VHS release of the film was not granted until 1998, a full ''thirteen years'' after the movie's original release, and this was only after considerable pressure from the film's growing fanbase. Even with this and two DVD releases (in 2000 and 2010), the film remains virtually unseen among the studio's vast array of merchandise. It doesn't help that it eventually became the Disney Animated Canon's last traditionally-animated movie to hit Blu-ray, aside from any 1940s post-Golden Age package film containing more than two segments.

** Nick did a similar thing with the more modern ''WesternAnimation/RobotAndMonster''. They debunked a second season during mid-production, aired the episodes OutOfOrder, shafted it to Nicktoons, and took reruns off the air in 2015, leaving only one episode unaired. (That episode being A Better Marftrap and Monster Lie. Apparently, the former was supposed to be the REAL first episode of the series, and was even produced as such) Because it is rarely acknowledged by many people, It's really impossible to find the whole series online, however, [[http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I3P8XT4 Nick was somehow generous enough to put all of Season 1 on DVD (Including the unaired episode).]]

** Most of the French voice actors, especially Fabrice Josso (Cosmo) and Alexis Tomassian (Foop), have gone so far as to ''DENY'' having ever heard of the series.
** Sparky was a character hated by fans and most of the staff, which led him to be removed in the tenth season.

* William Hanna of HannaBarbera wasn't very fond of ''WesternAnimation/YoYogi'' as he put it, "They screwed it up by re-designing him. They made him look like a whoremonger. If you have something that works, donít screw it up!".

** ''Creator/{{Nelvana}}'', one of the animation companies, doesn't even mention this show on their website.

** ''Creator/{{Nelvana}}'', one of the animation companies, doesn't even mention this show on their website. However, this may have come from the fact that Nelvana doesn't own any rights to the show, as it was a commisioned work (the cartoon's rights are owned by Universal domestically and Warner Bros. internationally). For similar reasons, Nelvana's site doesn't acknowledge for example the Ace Ventura cartoon or ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfChuckandFriends''.
