This is a list of episodes that have been banned and/or censored.

Banned/Censored by NickelodeonEdit

These are episodes that were either banned or censored by Nickelodeon

  • Big House Blues: The dog catcher saying "See if I care" was cut from the Nickelodeon airing for looking "too feminine", as was Ren kissing Stimpy and washing his mouth in a toilet (despite the latter scene appearing in the theme song).
  • Sven Hoek: The scenes where Sven and Stimpy play together in Stimpy's litter box and Ren threatening to gouge Stimpy and Sven's eyes out were not shown on the Nickelodeon airing. Both scenes are restored in the First and Second Seasons DVD, albeit the latter featuring a video timecode and rougher animation.
  • Big Baby Scam: The entire "family bath" sequence was cut from later Nickelodeon airings around 1994 (as well as the More Stinky Stories VHS), and the episode was later pulled from airing.
  • Dog Show: George Liquor's name is censored in the Nickelodeon airing, instead being simple "George, American". Much like its sister episode Big Baby Scam, it was later pulled from airing.
  • Stimpy's Fan Club: Was banned in some countries due to Ren threatening to kill Stimpy. The Oath bumper was cut in the UK, and some later airings cut out the gag of a man's butt appearing over Ren's face (indicating he feels like an ass).
  • Out West: A clip of Abner and Ewalt tying nooses around their necks and Ewalt saying "Ya'll bring the kids now ya hear?" are cut in most versions of the episode. The two scenes are still intact on the Spike TV version.
  • Powdered Toast Man: After the original airing, the scene where Powdered Toast Man burns the Bill of Rights was trimmed due to parents complaining about it. However, the scene still remains in international broadcasts.
  • A Visit To Anthony: Hasn't aired in a decade on Nickelodeon. Believed to be banned. Most likely due to strong themes of bullying, or royalty issues involving "Anthony" who was a real fan who sent the first fan letter to the show and voiced himself in the episode.
  • Son of Stimpy: A scene involving Stimpy asking a police officer about Stinky and being kicked out after is removed in all US airings, however it is available on the DVD version, it should be noted that this scene was included in certain international airings, such as the Nickelodeon Japan airings.
  • The Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen: During the anthem, "hell" is censored with a fart on Nickelodeon. On MTV (until 2016), the anthem was uncensored.
  • Man's Best Friend: Banned from airing due to scenes of brutal violence, cigar references, and scatological jokes. This episode would not air on TV until TNN/Spike TV aired the episode as an unofficial premiere of the Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" and with a TV-MA rating, and is available on disc 2 the First and Second Seasons DVD as a bonus feature.
  • Circus Midgets: Banned by Nickelodeon due to the word "midget" being potentially offensive to some viewers. It was last aired on Nickelodeon around 2000. Aired on NickToons Network around 2004/2005.
  • Jimminy Lummox: On the Nickelodeon airings, the scene where Mister Pipe drinks the polluted water was trimmed. It originally had the aftermath of his hands melting.
  • Ren's Retirement: Banned by Nickelodeon due to its dark subject matter. Later aired on MTV & The Splat.
  • Eat My Cookies: Banned some places due to heavy references to communism.
  • Ren's Bitter Half: Banned for the same reasons as Eat My Cookies. Both episodes are available on the Seasons Three and a Half-ish DVD.
  • Powdered Toast Man vs. Waffle Woman: Banned from airing after September 11, 2001, due to a scene depicting the Twin Towers being destroyed. The episode would later air on The Splat as well as MTV.
  • Double Header: Banned due to multiple scenes of disturbing imagery. It last aired on Nickelodeon in late 2000.
  • Ren Needs Help!: Banned for its disturbing subject matter. The scene of Stimpy visiting Ren and showing him a baby that resembles a guard is also cut, the episode is available on DVD, but with some footage removed.
  • Bell Hops/Dog Tags: Banned by Nickelodeon for unknown reasons.
  • Reverend Jack: A scene involving Reverend Jack placing meat on Ren and Stimpy's heads and chanting was cut from all airings of the episode and was shortened and re-edited over a shot of the meat truck with the choir music removed and re-scored. This scene can be found on YouTube.
  • Sammy and Me: Banned due to its violent subject matter and potentially offensive jokes. The episode did not air on Nickelodeon and instead premiered on MTV. Nickelodeon did eventually air it in August 2000.
  • The Last Temptation: Banned due to its religious subject matter. Much like its sister episode Sammy and Me, it premiered on MTV and never aired on Nickelodeon.
