In recent days, Disney Plus subscribers may have noticed that certain episodes of their favorite shows are missing. The folks at What’s on Disney Plus put together a list of some of the shows with known missing episodes early Tuesday, and it’s a long list, including favorites like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, Once Upon a Time, and many others.
Disney commented on Deadline that the “purge” is an accidental glitch being fixed, and we’ve noticed that episodes have been reinstated for some series, such as season one of Agent Carter† Meanwhile, others like The Scrooge McDuck series “Ducktalesor Rocket & Big, are still incomplete.
The occasional hiccup on a streaming platform is to be expected, and as long as it doesn’t deter fans from their next installment of Moon Knight or the premiere of Obi-Wan Kenobiit will probably soon be forgotten.
The strange thing is that Disney Plus now has a track record of these quirks if you include recent cases where edited versions were exchanged for some of the Marvel Netflix shows before being fixed. Or the time a few weeks ago when Disney Plus US — which maintains some family-friendly restrictions on the content it contains, even though it has new parental controls — streamed Hot Shots and Hot Shots Part Deux for a few days before they were removed.
