There were a bunch of scrapped ideas in Epic Rap Battles of Cartoons.
The hint for Mabel Pines vs Catbug was Ren and Stimpy vs Beavis and Butthead, but due to terrible lyrics and unfinished audio, Matthew changed the battle to Discord vs Ice King, only to have the battle redone for Season 2. Matthew did reveal the old lyrics to the battle, however, information of the audio is unknown.
Goku vs Superman Edit
Epic Rap Battles of History made it, so Matthew rejected the idea.
Shaggy Rogers vs JabberjawEdit
Matthew had the idea, wrote a couple of lines, but then he passed it on.
The battle was scrapped for having bad audio, terrible lyrics, and awkward casting choices.
This battle was scrapped because the connection wasn't good, and some of the audio was bad.
The audio was really disappointing, and the idea of The Three Stooges in a cartoon rap battle series didn't fit well.
Scrapped audio: Edit
We Bare Bears vs Fish Hooks Edit
Cartoon Made Rap Battles was going to do the battle instead. Funnily enough, CMRB would later scrap the battle themselves.
Originally the Season 3 finale. The battle was scrapped because the audio sounded like shit, and Matthew had a better idea to do for the finale.
Scrapped audio: Edit
This was going to be the first battle of the rebooted series. Because of issues in the community, the reboot was canceled and this battle was scrapped.
Matthew released a Flow Test demo of Catbug's verses. PuppyCat's verses were never written. Matthew didn't explain why this was scrapped.
