** "From Another Planet With Love" was banned in the 1970s after a support group for atomic bomb survivors complained about comparisons between bomb victims and Spehl Aliens.[[note]]That's literal, by the way - the episode was actually rerun several times without incident or comment, but a third party published a set of cards that happened to describe Spehl-Seijin as "A-Bomb Survivor Spehl-Seijin" (which isn't inaccurate, but can really only invite bad-taste comparisons). Tsuburaya banned the episode outright as a result of the controversy, as well as all elements from it.[[/note]]

* MissingEpisode: Ultra Seven is this and then some. Tsuburaya has a self-imposed ban on Episode 12. Out of the Hawaiian Dub, only episodes 21, 22, and 35 survived. In the Cinar/Turner dub, all episodes were dubbed, but between 1985 and 1994, Turner's own video copies of episodes 5, 6, and 7 disappeared. Strangely enough, the banned Episode 12 was dubbed and broadcast in the States[[note]]Spehl-Seijin is made out to be a vampire of sorts[[/note]], and can even be found online. Nowadays, "Super Weapon R-1" is banned due to parallels to the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster.

** Most of those designs lacked an Eye Slugger.

** Was originally supposed to be a more hard sci-fi show similar to ''Series/LostInSpace'' called ''The Ultra Garrison'', but [[Creator/{{TBS}} Turner Program Services]] urged a rewrite due to being too similar to rival show ''Captain Ultra'', and the show was turned into ''[[WorkingTitle Ultra Eye]]'', where Dan was supposed to transform into Redman, who was also [[SpinOffspring Ultraman Junior]]. The Capsule Monsters were supposed to be [[Series/UltraQ Peguila]], [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Antlar, and Red King]], but Tsuburaya wanted to do more with their budget, so the capsule monsters became new monsters. ''Ultra Eye'' was reworked into ''Ultra Seven'' and the rest is history.
** When TPS was shown the finished dub, they found it to be subpar, and after failing to sell it to another network or syndication, the episodes were locked away until 1994- when they realized they never got run, they were given to Creator/{{TNT}} to run as part of their ''Toons Til Noon'' and ''[=MonsterVision=]'' blocks (for the former, the eps were edited to be suitable for kids and families; for the latter, the episodes ran uncut).
