Lost Media Memories

Have you ever tried to find a random clip, whether it be a commercial, episode, etc. that you remember from the past but can't find it anywhere? Chances are you're dealing with lost media.

Lost Media (n):
Media that has previously existed but no longer does or is lost or not viewable to the public.

To see if some vague memory you saw late at night was a dream or in fact reality, I highly recommend checking out the Lost Media Wiki, the hub of both found and lost media.

I'll start with some I remember.


  • During Cartoon Network's "Yes!" era in the mid-2000s, there were a ton of bumpers that are no longer available. The one I remember specifically was Grandpa Max from Ben 10 standing against a white background singing the Muffin Man song.
  • I remember for about a week straight in around 2006/2007, Cartoon Network would show a commercial for softcore porn. I have no idea why it showed (probably Turning fucking up what channel specific ads were supposed to play) or how they got away with showing it multiple times, but I can't find any record of it happening online. But I remember specifically talking about it with kids at school that week.
  • Most of Out of Jimmy's Head. While each episode has been found, a lot of the original English episodes are still missing. This show was awful but I specifically remember the episode "Ambush" really well. It's there, but not in English, and that version is lost.
What about you? Any lost media stories?

I remember seeing those ads of software porn. But maybe you were confused with adult swim because they would come on after.

But I got a lost media I've been wanting to see again for a long time is "Dan nainan tesla world 2015" it was a comedy thing he did and it was 30 minutes of pure, concentrated cringe. Literally 30 FUCKING minutes he was up there telling jokes and nobody laughed. It was amazing. The current video is private on YouTube and you can't find the vid anywhere else

Not quite on the same level as other media, on account of it being extensively documented and all that, but I'll forever be saddened that I'll never be able to play Cartoon Network's FusionFall in its original state ever again.

There was a fan-made remake called FusionFall Legacy that was in development for about 5 years before the team got hit with a DMCA request from Cartoon Network. Shit sucks :PepeHands:

Sure, it might not have been the best MMO, but it was my first and goddamnit I have a lot of great memories of staying up late to level up and tackle bosses.

I may or may not still have a thing for Marie Kanker in this game. :gollyBLUSH:

Maybe. I do remember it happening later in the day, at least, so that's possible.

Fuck, I remember seeing ads for that all the time but I never had a chance to play it.

ビデオロボットと呼ばれる長い間忘れられていたビデオホストのウェブサイトでビデオを見たのを覚えています。このサイトが日本でここにしか表示されなかったかどうかはわかりません。それはあなたのチューブほど知られておらず、アップロードできるビデオのルールも少なかった。そこに気になるものを見たのを覚えています。たとえば、ハチの刺し傷治療を受けている男性がカメラに不気味に笑っているビデオがありました。当時のほとんどのビデオがそうであったように、それは非常に低解像度でした。ミツバチはブーンという音を立てて頬に突き刺し、痛みが染み込んでいる間、小さな音を立てました。ビデオロボットが閉じたとき、私はがっかりしました。そこには本当にクレイジーなビデオがいくつかありました

The Softcore porn, was it the Girls Gone Wild commercials? I remember seeing those on Cartoon Network in the middle of the every once in a while while watching Space Ghost, I'd hear the music and go "oooooh yeah!"

I don't think so; I remember seeing those on Comedy Central. The ones I remember had a narrative, I'm pretty sure.

あなたはそれがコメディセントラルにあったと言います。あなたがトレイパーカーの淫行の挑戦を見たショーは壮観でしたか?ずっと前にそれを見たのを覚えています、それは挑発的で心のこもったもので、私の心に燃えました

I don't know about clips but I can't find any references or discussions or news about why shoutwire was shutdown. That was one of my go-to news/ discussion boards.

Interesting, I'm not finding any results for this on Google. Does it go by another name?
