In the episode titled "shanghaied/gary takes a bath" Squidward falls through "the fly of despair" into a surreal nightmare dimension.

According to GOOGLE - Happy Tree Friends is not intended for anyone under 13. Russia banned it last year.

"Hot Spells" features the titular character engaged in a battle with Beelzebub, who is depicted as the devil. Fittingly, the episode premiered on October 31, 1992. Because the devil attempts to steal Darkwing Duck's soul, it was pulled from rotation and remains firmly locked in Disney's vault.

Dexter's Laboratory - 'Barbequor' (1996)
The episode first aired May 19, 1996, but was soon banned due to either the offensive stereotype or because of the obvious copyright infringement on Marvel's Silver Surfer. Still, there are some out there who laud Silver Spooner as a gay cartoon icon.

Rocko's Modern Life - 'Leap Frogs' (1993)
Initially aired October 31, 1993, and features Rocko's next-door neighbors, the Bigheads, an unhappily married couple. Mrs. Bighead attempts to make her husband jealous by inviting Rocko over to "fix" a few things around the house.
The episode is laden with sexual innuendo, and at one point she offers him lemonade made with "Spanish fly," an aphrodisiac. She asks Rocko to zip up her dress and, when he does, her dress rips in two. The episode was eventually banned for its frank depiction of adult sexuality.

Rocko's Modern Life - 'Heff in a Handbasket' (1996)

While there is never a direct use of the word "hell," the episode does include characters dealing with the Dark Underlord, as well as references to going to "heck" and the number 666. Perhaps it was the obvious use of "heck" instead of hell or the idea of characters selling their souls to the devil (named Peaches) that made the episode problematic.

Pokémon - 'Holiday at Aopulco/Beauty and the Beach' (1997)

James inflates his suit so his false breasts become enormous, then uses them to tease the younger Misty. Between the tiny bathing suit and the humor at Misty's expense, the episode was banned before being heavily edited. It was eventually released, but without the images of James in his bathing suit.
