Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/Deadpool2016'' was heavily censored just to receive an adults-only rating in India, [[http://i.imgur.com/p69odGH.jpg as one can see from this document]]. Not only was the censorship a major killer of a lot of the film's humor, it was inconsistent (the repeated 'Sexy motherfucker...' in the Deadpool rap was left intact).

* When ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' aired on Disney Cinemagic in the UK, Mater's line "He did ''what'' in his cup?!" when Lightning [=McQueen=] mentions the Piston Cup was cut.

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek2}} Shrek 2]]'', when the gang are being broken out of jail, the Gingerbread Man doesn't yank at Pinnochio's thong (and doesn't protest he isn't wearing one). The CBBC edited version makes it look like Pinocchio's first denial that he is wearing ladies underwear is enough to make his nose grow long enough.

* The opening song to Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', ''Arabian Nights'' was changed from "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face/It's barbaric, but, hey, it's home" in the original theatrical version to a more acceptable "Where it's flat and immense, and the heat is intense/It's barbaric, but, hey, it's home." for the home release when Disney received complaints that the ear-cutting part was offensive to those living in Arabic countries (despite that punishments like that ''do'' exist in Arabic countries). The original version made it to the early pressings of the soundtrack on CD, but later versions used the less offensive version.
** MTI's junior musical of the movie uses the less offensive version, but "It's barbaric" was replaced by "It's a furnace!".

* One version of the English dub of ''Animation/LeafieAHenIntoTheWild'' cuts out [[spoiler:that part where [[TheHeroDies Leafie dies]].]] while another version simply cuts right before it but leaves the implications.

Added DiffLines:

* A developmental variant happened with ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. Early in the film, Rapunzel confronts Flynn with a frying pan when he hides in her tower. Originally she was meant to confront Bastion (the character Flynn replaced) with a ''crossbow''.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/JohnWaters had fun with a basic cable edit of the controversially-rated-NC-17 ''A Dirty Shame'', blurring any nudity, cutting any motions, dialogue, or even ''facial expressions'' deemed too sexual (of which this movie has lots) and dubbing over language with hilarious substitutes (on one occasion, "bearjobs" replaces "blowjobs"). This cut still got an R rating from the MPAA.

* The United Kingdom release of the [[LiveActionAdaptation live-action]] remake of ''Film/101Dalmatians'' has Horace's line "No bloody wonder you can't talk, mate!" re-dubbed to replace the word ''bloody'' with ''blinkin'''. Since ''bloody'' is [[CultureClash considered to be of profane variety in the United Kingdom]], the BBFC refused to grant the film a U rating until the change was made.

** One version that aired on The WB went further in cuts. The film lost an entire hour and some death scenes were cut completely.
