Following the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001, the episode 'A Scare in the Air' had its title changed to 'Spirits in the Sky' out of respect for the United States fans. The episode 'Tentacool and Tentacruel' was pulled from the rotation due to its storyline which featured a creature that destroyed skyscrapers. In total, there were three episodes that were pulled because of 9/11, which have since been put back since Cartoon Network started showing reruns. See more
