@Aleums bebop was a masterpiece tbh
it literally transcends genres and, at the time, was mindblowingly groundbreaking in a variety of ways (which is why they weren't allowed to air the whole thing)
@Aleums when it originally aired in Japan, they would only air 12 episodes (and highly censored them)
the team hated this but went along with it, placing a message in the typical bebop ending credits font at the end of the last episode which iirc read "ONE DAY, YOU WILL SEE THE FULL WORK"
@Aleums in NA, adult swim also censored the show pretty hard, and several episodes didn't air until years late due to similarities to 9/11 and other various catastrophic events at the time of airing

@Aleums three episodes were removed due to similarities to 9/11, and another was removed due to the spaceship Columbia breaking up in re-entry in 2003
at least one of these didn't actually manage to air until the fourth airing of the show, and all of them still had minor censorship in them
@Aleums ah, found it. the actual quote was "THIS IS NOT THE END. YOU WILL SEE THE REAL WORK SOMEDAY."
this was placed at the end of an extra montage clipshow they were allowed to air as a pseudo-ending to the show after the heavily redacted 12-episode run concluded.
