Bésame la Panosh (partially lost animated web series; 2014)
Bésame la Panosh was a controversial Peruvian flash-animated series uploaded in early 2014. It was infamous for plagiarizing Vete a la Versh, another Mexican flash-animated series created by Darkar Alatriz. Since its release, the series had poor acceptance from Vete a la Versh's fandom because they considered it lame and a bad copycat.
Due to a lot of insulting comments, the creator of the series removed all the episodes and compiled them in one video in early 2016. To avoid the plagiarism controversy, he wrote on the video description that the series was "a parody of Darkar's works".
On March 19, 2016, the YouTube Channel TacoTaco Burrito made a review of the series. Obviously, the video exposed the bad aspects of the show and considered it as the "most cringe-worthy videos from YouTube". On April 26, the creator of Bésame la Panosh reported the review because of copyright infringement. After the video was blocked, TacoTaco Burrito's administrator had a talk with the creator series and the video was available again a few hours later.
However, because the review reached a great number of views, the episodes re-compilation video was deleted from Bésame la Panosh's YouTube Channel. The only footage available is the second episode (along animations tests) uploaded on the creator's channel and the clips on TacoTaco Burrito's review.
