* The ABC airing of ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}'' trims down the scene where Marty hallucinates that his face is peeling off so it's less graphic, and it cuts before he rips down to the bone.

** 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.

* It's impossible for an adaptation of ''Literature/{{It}}'' to have the infamous [[spoiler:orgy]] scene involving a bunch of preteens. Both the [[Film/It1990 1990]] and [[Film/It2017 2017]] adaptations thus cut it. In the latter it was replaced with a group hug.

* Thanks to UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode, several lyrics from the songs in ''AnythingGoes'' were changed for the 1937 movie. "Now God knows" and "four-letter words" were changed to "Heaven knows" and "three-letter words" in the title song, and in "I Get a Kick Out of You" the lyric "Some get a kick from cocaine" was changed to "Some like the perfume in Spain."

** The dub voice used throughout ''Die Hard 2: Die Harder's'' edit barely even matches Bruce Willis at all, instead being described by various YouTube commenters as sounding somewhat like a bad [[BarneyTheDinosaur Barney the Dinosaur]] impression. Perhaps the most hilariously egregious example of [=McClane=]'s voice drastically changing mid-conversation is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQDIdGenhaY a scene where he starts arguing with Carmine Lorenzo]]. There are quite a few interesting word replacements. The most infamous of the edits is [=McClane=]'s signature "Yippie-ki-yay-motherfucker!" being changed to "Yippie-ki-yay, Mr. Falcon", despite the fact that ''there's nobody in the movie named Mr. Falcon''. Or rather, there previously hadn't been; one character's last name was changed to Falcon in the edit.

Added DiffLines:

* The TV version of ''Film/{{Whiplash}}'' kills the film's intensity and a number of its best lines by hilariously redubbing them; Fletcher refers to Andrew as "friendless" rather than "faggot-lipped" in one scene, and in another tells a student to "get the ''flip'' out".

* The UK version of the movie ''Literature/TheWitches'' was edited to remove the Grand High Witch taking her wig off (which revealed a disgusting, possibly bloody rash) and shortened Bruno's transformation into a mouse, as the censors felt it was too much terror for a PG-rated movie.

* Many TV editions of ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' (particularly the one shown on the former FOX Family Channel) have the disturbing Psychedelic Boat Tunnel sequence removed. The Disney Channel airings of the '80s and '90s keep the sequence, but remove the chicken decapitation.

* 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.

* The MGM film version of ''Theatre/OnTheTown'' altered "New York, New York, a helluva town" to "New York, New York, a wonderful town." A few years later, the {{Bowdlerise}}d refrain gave a title to Creator/ComdenAndGreen's Broadway musical ''Wonderful Town''.
