Subject: RE: Adult Swim

Thank you for your feedback regarding Adult Swim. The Cowboy Bebop program was pulled from the current schedule due to an episode that was not appropriate to air at this time given the tragic events that took place at the World Trade Center and Pentagon last week. Cowboy Bebop is expected to return to the Adult Swim line-up within the next several weeks. Please check your local listings or for specific tune-in information.

Thank you again for your feedback.

Last night, Cowboy Bebop was broadcast, but Episode #6 (Sympathy for the Devil) was not broadcast. Episode #8 (Waltz for Venus) apparently will not either, according to internal sources at Cartoon Network, as well as the Cartoon Network scheduler itself.
