* ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'' Even though it had great ratings and was considered to be a great and flagship show on The Hub, it just... ''stopped'' after 13 episodes in season 3. It was stated there would be a season 4 later in 2013, then Dan's VA Curtis Armstrong confirmed otherwise on his Facebook.
** On October 6, 2014, just a week before The Hub would become Discovery Family, the network lost the airing rights to the show, it disappeared from the network's site, and its single spot on early weekday mornings was replaced with a second episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow''. Creator/{{Starz}} Media would later put up every episode of the show on Website/YouTube before taking them down a few months later.

* Reruns of ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' were screwed over thanks in no small part to [[Film/JemAndTheHolograms its film adaptation]] [[BoxOfficeBomb tanking]]; its timeslot was handed over to ''Transformers Prime''. The only silver lining was that its 2015 comic book adaptation did well.

* A supposed, '''very''' bried-lived attempt to air ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' on RAI (the public Italian TV service) happened in Italy around the mid-1990s (1996-1997). Nobody knows when the series aired, the voice actors of the characters or ''anything'' about the series' Italian version. The only thing known is that some episodes were aired by RAI 2 on a very early timeslot (ie. 7AM) and then the show, maybe because of low audience, maybe because of [[Main/MoralGuardians Moral Guardians]] was swiftly cancelled before it could have had even a teeny-bit of popularity. Nothing more. There is no trace of an Italian dub (though it pretty surely ''was'' dubbed, as 99-100% of the foreign TV series/cartoons/films get an Italian dub) on the Internet, and the few infos you can trace about the airing of the series in Italy are very vague. The '''Adult Party Cartoon''' aired some years later in the Italian version of FOX, but even there it didn't take off and got rapidly cancelled. The original series started then to air on Main/Nickelodeon Nickelodeon Italy in June 2016, but with subtitles, which implies that a) the series was aired with subtitles on RAI (unlikely) b) the Italian dub of the series was wiped off and lost forever.

Added DiffLines:

** Later, in 2017, they aired ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''... at ''4 AM''. And while most of their programming in that timeframe is made of reruns of older shows (such as ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' or ''WesternAnimation/MartinMystery''), this was ''Korra'''s ''first airing'' outside of pay-TV and DVD releases.

** ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': When they moved to [=NTV7=] from [=MetroVision=] (now [=8TV=]) after a four year hiatus, this happened. Episodes were randomly censored (you may ask: it's a harmless kids cartoon! What could they possibly censor? Well, the infamous ''Zoo Story'' episode has all scenes containing pigs cut off[[note]] as Malaysia has a large Muslim population and pigs (whether used as food or not) are seen as highly taboo in the Islam religion, although there is no written law stating that pigs must be cut, some TV stations do that anyway[[/note]] - despite the same episode airing on Nickelodeon Asia, which is available in Malaysia, uncut). The show stopped airing on Terrestrial TV in Malaysia four years before Nickelodeon would end the show once and for all.

** ''WesternAnimation/MagicAdventuresOfMumfie'' was supposed to be aired by [=NTV7=] in the early 2000's, but was replaced at the last minute by ''Anime/ChibiMarukoChan'', simply because one of the main characters was a ''flying pig''. Actually, in this case it's more towards BannedInChina since the show has not been made available through other outlets thus far.

*** ''Contraptus'' is listed as airing for a full hour or so on Fridays, even though ''Lucky Luke'' still has the timeslot....looks like Cinémoi doesn't really know what to do with the poor lonesome cowboy.

* ''Stripperella'' got screwed over by Spike TV...''majorly''. It aired on a late night block with much more juvenile and widely hated shows such as ''[[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon]]'', and despite being generally liked by those who had seen it the fact that it was airing on Spike and was being hyped up for its nudity turned potential viewers off, despite its intelligent humor and well-done animation. Spike started pushing nudity even more in the second half when the ratings were declining (replacing the pixelation with a soft blur over nude scenes, hoping to attract pervert attention), canceled it after 13 episodes, and then gave it a poorly-mastered "uncensored" (though some copies report the pixelation still being there) DVD.
