The Muppets came to Disney+ recently, and, wouldn’t you know it, they’ve been edited to hell and back! Not only is The Muppet Show edited to remove “copyright infringing” material, but there are two episodes missing entirely. Namely, the Brooke Shields one, and the one hosted by Chris Langham (for those of you that don’t live in Britain, he was a comedian who got arrested for looking up child porn on his computer).

As for their theatrical releases, they made it through mostly intact. The only exception is The Muppet Christmas Carol, probably one of the best adaptations of the story. What’s so offensive about this timeless classic? Well, they removed the character of Bobby Benson’s trademark cigarette in a scene that only lasts for about two seconds. Keep in mind that this scene appears intact on Blu-Ray releases. Also note that this character’s appearances in the TV show have not been edited at all, so why they erased it in this one scene baffles me.

Added!

Sonic the Hedgehog had a slight alteration to the end credits on the Blu-ray release compared to the theatrical release.

[WARNING: SPOILER ALERT, YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT IF YOU WATCHED THE MOVIE]

There’s no credit for Coleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails in the mid-credits scene in the theatrical release but she is credited on the Blu-ray release.
Makes sense that they would retroactively add a credit for Tails’ voice since it’s one of the most spoiled scenes in the movie, and probably one of the most spoiled mid-credits scenes in all of modern cinema.

Added. Can you provide a source?

TV Tropes referenced it in “The Second Visitor” section of the Characters page.

And I found a Korean-sourced WEBRip that leaked before the film’s digital release and it still has the theatrical credits which doesn’t credit “The Second Visitor”.

Thanks, added!

Interstellar IMAX frame
Time

darth-gary said:

You found this at a swimming pool? Crazy 😃 Of all the things for people to leave lying around; car keys, gym bags, IMAX film frames… heh. I noticed the sprocket holes are top and bottom… is that an IMAX thing? I’m not that knowledgeable about modern film prints.

Bizarre find, right? And yeah, IMAX runs horizontally. It’s the same film as standard 70mm, but by running it horizontally they get substantially more resolution out of it.

Disney+ edits to movies/TV shows:

Adventures in Babysitting: Some lines from the TV edit have made their way into this streaming version; namely, the word “homo” is replaced by “weirdo”, and “fuck” is replaced by “fool”.

The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin: This is a somewhat obscure Western film starring Roddy McDowall. I’ve never seen it, but apparently, some racial slurs have been erased.

Free Solo: Another film I’ve never seen. The phrase “fucked up” is replaced by “messed up”. “Goddamn” is also taken out of a TV documentary in a later scene.

Gravity Falls: Season 1 episodes have mysteriously removed the symbol on Grunkle Stan’s fez. This was apparently an edit made for overseas countries that somehow made it onto our version of the streaming service.

Hannah Montana: For whatever reason, a Season 2 episode has a character’s name changed from “Isis” to “Ice”. Despite this, another character named “Isis” in an episode of Even Stevens has not been altered.

Splash: The most infamous of all the edits. All instances of nudity have been blurred out, cropped, or covered by CGI hair.

There are more examples I didn’t mention, and possibly more that nobody has discovered yet. Are any of you guys brave enough to look for more?

Santa Clause also edits out the 1-800 Spank Me scene, this originated on the DVD release but other certain streaming versions oddly enough restored the scene.

Lilo and Stitch used the UK edit of the scene where Lilo hides in a pizza box instead of the dryer

The Simpsons episode Stark Riving Dad is left off due to the Michael Jackson cameo, though I believe unfortunately this was done in all streaming sites (stemming possibly from the “documentary” HBO aired Leaving Neverland)

Added the movies. Please provide links to sources if possible.

I’ve added the films, but will not be adding TV shows to this thread. Please send links to sources if you have any.

Interstellar IMAX frame
Time

I recently got a flatbed film scanner for my photography, and remembered this. One day I was at a swimming pool, when I found an IMAX frame from Interstellar laying on the locker room floor. I decided to use it to test my scanner’s ability to capture medium format color film, and it doesn’t look half bad. The final scan is around 130 megapixels, and really highlights the damage. This was one of the sections of the film shot in 35mm, so it won’t have the full IMAX resolution, by I think it’s neat anyway.

Link to US 18-disc Blu-ray only.

oojason said:

It is apparently available in the US too:-

https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Skywalker-Complete-Blu-ray/dp/B082WXD4ZH - $149.99. It may be cheaper and also available elsewhere?

Wazzles said:

Does anyone know if the 18 disc set is available in the US? I can’t seem to find it on Amazon.

Thanks! Really annoying that this is an important, but at least it’s better than spending $30 a pop.

Star Wars vs. A New Hope - Which do you say and why?
Time

Forgive my laziness for not checking the rest of the thread, but when did it first get marketed as A New Hope? From what I can tell, all the marketing until 1995 referred to it as Star Wars, when the faces set referred to it as A New Hope. Was there a time prior to this in any sort of media (with the exception of the on-screen title) not calling it Star Wars?
