Too bad! The trade was canceled! is an effect in Pokémon Red and Blue in which the text "Too bad! The trade was canceled!" (usually used for cancelling a trade on a game connected to a Link Cable in the Trade Corner) appears, which possibly leads to a glitched trade screen.

The effect can be caused by glitch Trainers, both from regular and artificial Trainer classes, or when trying to force a sound from invalid sound bank 0x01.

Resulting trade screen

Selecting any Pokémon from the trade screen may simply result in this message again, possibly with a text box in the wrong place on the screen.

Unfortunately, on all known documented cases, physically connecting a Link Cable does not allow for the player to trade the Pokémon.
