** The official reason for the banment in the US, according to Craig McCracken [[http://crackmccraigen.tumblr.com/post/147175691484/a-few-friends-and-i-just-watched-the-apparently himself]] is because "[the network] claimed that the metal beams in the destroyed buildings looked too much like crosses and one of the hippies looked like Jesus. That was never our intention at all, we were really surprised that they banned it."

** According to Craig on [[http://crackmccraigen.tumblr.com/post/144108197029/if-anything-there-should-be-a-batman-crossover this]] post, one rejected idea the team had considered was doing a DCAU crossover. In it, the Joker came to Townsville and started wreaking havoc, only for the girls to be stopped at every turn by the Mayor because [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity the city's been put on the map for being targeted by an A-list villain.]] They wanted to use Bruce Timm's designs for the characters as well.

* BannedEpisode: The season 5 "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" was banned in the US, due to the heavy use of strobe effects (which would have triggered epileptic seizures in more sensitive viewers, much like the notorious ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' episode "Electric Soldier Porygon." Reportedly, it was banned for allegedly having Communist undertones, but this was never proven). The episode can now be seen on the complete series DVD set for the show and on the complete series collection on Netflix. It aired in Canada on March 18, 2004.

* BoxOfficeBomb: Warner Bros' marketing for the movie was quite lousy (as stated in the main page), but CN did their part and promoted it to heck and back (even Creator/AdultSwim got involved). Outside the channel, however, there was barely any mention of it. Not helping was it was pitted against ''Film/MenInBlackII'' on the opening weekend, was overshadowed by the surprise hit ''Like Mike'' and Warner Bros focusing their campaign on the ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' live-action movie. As such it preformed poorly. Because of this, the series finales for ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' and ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' were scaled back to made-for-TV fare rather than made into feature films.

* CreatorBacklash: While she stands behinds its message, Lauren Faust has said that she wasn't happy with how "Equal Fights" turned out, feeling that feminism was too dense a subject to depict in a lighthearted cartoon. It didn't help that she'd had to endure complaints from pretty much every side of the argument, from real man-hating feminists to men accusing her of misandry.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: The test screening for the first pilot was an absolute disaster, with children complaining about the unusual character designs and one even going as far as to say that Craig [=McCracken=] should ''be fired''[[note]]This kid would later serve as the inspiration for [[TakeThat the show's bully Mitch Mitchelson]][[/note]]. Craig went to work redesigning the characters with more traditional features, but then-president of Creator/CartoonNetwork Mike Lazo reassured him that a negative reaction was better than a lukewarm reaction, and that they shouldn't change a thing.
