In response, the distributor immediately announced a ReCut that would remove those two scenes entirely.

** Although USA and Bravo showed ''Casino'' and, amongst other edits, changed "you Jew motherfucker, you!" to "you Jew money-lover, you!" which is, unfortunately, [[UnfortunateImplications not better]].

* In June 2017, Creator/SonyPictures began offering the TV cuts of films in its library for sale online, packaged with the uncut version with no extra charge. The service, which Sony dubs "Clean Versions," have been argued to have been created to placate third-party websites such as [=VidAngel=] and [=ClearPlay=], which sells unauthorized censored versions of films. Creator/SethRogen, who has an ongoing deal with the studio, has a been a staunch detractor of this plan, along with audiences, filmmakers and the Directors' Guild of America who see the move as censorship. [[KnowWhenToFoldThem Sony quietly pulled the clean versions from stores a week after the initiative was announced]].

* The Dutch dub of ''WesternAnimation/PostmanPat'':TheMovie has suffered a few cuts, thus shortening the movie length. Some of the scenes that are cut include the scene where the PATBOT 3000 kicks the JESSBOT 3000, the scene where Edwin Carbunkle tells his plan to all of the PATBOTs, the scene where Wilf hits the PATBOT 3000 with a package two times, and the whole climax of the film. It is unknown why those edits were made, possibly because the scenes were either too scary or "violent" to watch.

* ''Film/AnimalHouse'':
** There are several examples in the TV version. The scene where Bluto looks in the sorority house window is highly edited, of course, and the pot party scene is cut out completely, along with both scenes of Greg getting handjobs in his convertible and the GoodAngelBadAngel debate over whether or not Pinto should have sex with the drunk girl lying before him. The most absurd bit of censorship, though, is changing the line, "Gregg doesn't believe in premarital intercourse" to "...premarital activity." It still means the same thing, so what's the point on editing it? Just because "intercourse" is more associated with sex than "activity." Come on, American censors...what are you doing?

* An entire adaptation was this. ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' is a play about two female teachers accused by an evil student of being in a lesbian relationship. When it was adapted to a movie in the 1930s, the lesbian relationship was changed to the two women dating (and fighting over) the same man. The 1961 adaptation called ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOcbgT4KeEY The Childrens Hour]]'' is truer to the original with the gay plot intact, though some editing needed to be done to appease the censors (as homosexuality ''still'' wasn't accepted in the 1960s).

** In the play [[spoiler:Martha]] shoots herself. The 1961 film censored it to make it slightly less graphic. She hangs herself instead, with a silhouette of the her dangling legs.

* Both film adaptations of ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'' censor [[spoiler:Piggy's]] death. In the book he is hit with a boulder which sends him flying off the cliff. He hits his head again and his brains spill out. The film adaptations change it so that he simply died of brain injury from being hit with the rock.
