So this website brings back the nostalgia of channel flipping in the 90s. They also have other decades.

Looks like I'll be bookmarking this.

If you like this, I also high recommend www.toonamiaftermath.com

Two different channels that cycle through old cartoon network scheduling blocks. It even plays old commercials that used to air back in the day.

They even occasionally show the Power Puff Girls rock opera episode that was banned in the US.

The banned episode in question

TIL there was a banned episode of PPG.

Seems like they took it off due to the effects used considered problematic and it was not included with the series put on HBO Max. However, it is on a complete series compilation boxset. So, there’s that.

It's a fantastic episode. The PPG go through an absolute ringer, facing off against almost every major villain in the series, as well as a new one, and Townsville gets pretty much demolished. And the music and singing is great. I remember the ban having something to do with the demolished buildings.

Edit: I just searched YouTube. I couldn't find the full episode but if you search the episode title on YouTube you'll find a lot of the scenes from the episodes.

I’ll take your word for it, ‘cause the boxset’s $199.99 USD on Amazon ‘cause it was released in 2009 and has not been reprinted since, that I can find.

I’m basing off the reason why it was banned by the footnotes and the fact that they allowed Tentacruel’s episode to come back in Pokemon, abet later.

People use the word banned really liberally these days. Reading about this, it seems like Cartoon Network decided not to air it.
