After the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, for two cycles, episode #22, "Cowboy Funk" was not aired on Cartoon Network, due to its plotline (a bomber blowing up skyscrapers) and the associated images of skyscrapers collapsing. The episode has since been aired on Cartoon Network. Also unaired, due to 9-11, was Episode #8 "Waltz for Venus," which opened with a spaceliner being hijacked. Also, for different reasons #6 "Sympathy for the Devil" (for scenes of a child being killed) was cut. All three episodes have since been aired on Cartoon Network. The original Japanese broadcast only aired half of the episodes in the show's run: the other half were deemed too violent for broadcast. It was aired later, uncut, on the cable WowWow network.
