Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/AstroBoy'':
** The DownerBeginning is less graphic in the movie than in [[Manga/AstroBoy the original manga]]. In the original Tobio gets into a car accident riding on the highway (depending on the depiction he either hijacks his father's car or is riding his bicycle). In the film Toby gets lodged inside a robot and explodes. He doesn't leave behind a body in the film, unlike in the manga which contains the iconic depiction of Tenma's holding his son's body.
** The original ''Astro Boy'' manga features heavy themes of FantasticRacism towards robots and WhatMeasureIsANonHuman. Almost all of this is absent from the film adaptation.

* The extremely adult ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'' wasn't immune to this either. The most obvious example of this attitude is in the "ComicBook/{{Den}}" story. Whereas in the original comics, Den arrives in Neverwhere [[MaleFrontalNudity buck naked]] in a fully visible fashion and never gives it any thought, the film version insists on covering up as soon as he arrives. Rather than even attempt to censor the copious female nudity left in, though, TV prints of the movie simply cut out the "Den" segment altogether.
** During the "Taarna" sequence, she is naked-from-a-distance during her "purification" swim, but anything that shows up close is covered by a traveling blur.

* Network/ToonDisney airings of ''WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers'' cut out the scene during the climax where Donald pokes Pete in the eyes.

* A developmental variant happened with ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. Early in the film, Rapunzel confronts Flynn with a [[FryingPanOfDoom frying pan]] when he hides in her tower. Originally she was meant to confront Bastion (the character Flynn replaced) with a ''crossbow''.
** Plus, of course this Disney version completely skips the part of the original tale that her lover gets her [[TeenPregnancy (teen) pregnant]] during his visits.

* In the TV version of ''Film/{{Arthur}}'' (the original version with Dudley Moore, not TheRemake with RussellBrand), John Gielgud asks Dudley Moore, "Shall I wash your neck for you?" instead of "Shall I wash your dick for you?"

* The broadcast version of ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou'' had a stellar examples of when Bowdlerization doesn't help in toning down content. When Patrick asks of Bianca, "What is it with this chick? She have beer-flavored nipples?" the TV version changes it to "beer-flavored boobs." [[FlatWhat Seriously, what the hell]]?

* The Spike TV version of ''Film/TheWaterboy'' edited the scene in the Bourbon Bowl where Derek visualizes the football as a KKK member's head in order to kick a field goal, which was the same way Bobby visualizes his foes, alongside the KKK member's scream when the field goal was kicked to simply a regular field goal.

Added DiffLines:

* The 25th Anniversary DVD of ''WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'' sloppily editted out the word "damn" in a couple instances, including Molly's comparative AtomicFBomb directed at the unicorn. This isn't even consistent with the film's graphic content, which had instances of violence and a harpy with humanoid breasts with nipples. Thankfully, the later Blu-ray release was fully uncut.

* FX's edit of Martin Scorsese's ''Film/TheDeparted'' has been turned into a comedy by way of poor choices in redubbing throughout the entire film (such as in the scene of JackNicholson telling [=DiCaprio=] that someday he will wake the "freak" up or the scene of [=DiCaprio=] losing it with Mark Wahlberg with how about I "freaking" kill you. And, of course, there was Matt Damon's, "This gonna be "freaking fun" rant towards the end of the film).

* ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMrFox'' {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this by using the word "cuss" in place of every cuss word, sometimes using it often enough to parody the overuse of "fuck" in Tarantino movies. In a streetscape background of one scene, there is graffiti that says "cuss" in big colorful letters. This, in turn, got the movie a PG rating for "slang humor" which was spoofed in [[http://gags.strewthcomic.com/2009/11/23/be-ye-warned/ this Strewth! comic]].
