* A rare non-musical example: The voice of the [[FramingDevice narrator/father]] was provided in the original TV screening of ''WesternAnimation/ThePoint'' by Dustin Hoffman, but for contractual reasons was been redubbed by Ringo Starr for the home video release, as well as by Alan Thicke for later cable re-broadcast. In fact, Hoffman was redubbed by Alan Barzman after the ''first screening''.

* Creator/TheWB adaptation of ''Series/BirdsOfPrey'', produced as it was in the early 2000's shortly ''before'' home video DVD releases became de facto expected for every series and being little more than a critically-lauded cult hit at the time, spent years in KeepCirculatingTheTapes limbo because the music couldn't be cleared. When the pleas of fans continued for several years, Warner Bros finally relented and released it to DVD, but had to compromise and pull this trope, which is noted on the back of the DVD packaging.

* The second, third, and fourth seasons' ''Series/QuantumLeap'' Region 1 [=DVDs=] were stripped of all licensed music not explicitly mentioned in dialogue, even when it left characters dancing the Twist, shouting "TEQUILA!" in unison, and mouthing the words to "Louie Louie" for no apparent reason. The most notable omission was the Music/RayCharles cover of "Georgia On My Mind," used repeatedly in the show to underscore the bigger TearJerker moments. After a vociferous outcry, the final season set was spared from any music cuts.

* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' had Frank Sinatra's "Love and Marriage" play as the show's opening theme, but when it came to the DVD release, the rights to the song expired and a generic electronic music piece was put in as a replacement.

* ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'''s English release only featured covers of one opening and one ending respectively due to the price of paying licenses to cover the rest.

Added DiffLines:

* When ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' was first released on DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment, the final two season sets suffered from this. Any use of copyrighted music was removed or dubbed over with generic music, and any credits sequences featuring music or celebrity cameos were replaced with generic white-on-black credits.
** Most infamously, this included replacing the credits of the Season 8 premiere, which was a parody of the opening from ''Series/ThePattyDukeShow'' lampshading the fact that two actresses alternated between the role of Becky. This sequence can still be seen on syndicated airings.
** Another memorable credits sequence that was replaced included a black-and-white scene of Roseanne's mother Beverly covering Billie Holiday's "Lover Man (Oh, Where Can You Be?)" from the Season 9 episode "Someday My Prince Will Come".
** In the two-part Disney World episode, the various uses of "When You Wish Upon a Star" were all replaced. When David sadly sings it to himself when he thinks he's not invited on the trip, he is dubbed over with a canned audience "aww". When Roseanne leads the family in a military cadence-style chant of the lyrics on their way to the park, they're dubbed over with the show's typical scene change music. The various uses of the original song played over the family enjoying the park were replaced with the 1812 Overture. When all seasons were re-released by Mill Creek Entertainment, this episode was the only one to have its original music restored; the rest of the replacements from the Anchor Bay release carried over to the Mill Creek sets.

* ''Film/SlapShot'' had "Right Back Where We Started From" and the rest of the songs featured in the film (including tracks by Music/EltonJohn and Music/FleetwoodMac) removed from its VHS releases and replaced with generic instrumentals. The songs were restored on the subsequent DVD and BD releases, [[AndTheFandomRejoiced much to the relief of the fans]].

* ''Series/WKRPInCincinnati'', because of the expiration of all the license agreements regarding music, also had a significant number of songs cut (keep in mind this is a television show about a radio station). The poor fan reception affected it's sales, causing Fox to halt it's DVD releases past the first season. The syndicated version also replaces a fair amount of its music.
** In 2014, Creator/ShoutFactory finally released the show on DVD in a complete series set. They cleared most of the music, and used special new technology to replace background songs they couldn't clear (the show's raw soundtrack tapes are long gone).

* (I Want to Marry a) "Lighthouse Keeper" by Erika Eigen, notably from the soundtrack of ''Film/AClockworkOrange'' was played in the broadcast of MTV's TheMaxx, but home video versions replaced it with a song with the lyric "I'm in Love with a School Bus Driver", which kinda misses the point of the Clockwork Orange reference.

* For all eight seasons, ''Series/{{Charmed}}'''s theme song was Love Spit Love's cover of Music/TheSmiths' "How Soon is Now?" However, before the Season 8 [=DVDs=] came out, the song's license expired. The producer were unable to get the license back, so as a result, on the [=DVDs=] the opening was replaced by a generic hard-rock instrumental theme.

** When FUNimation restored Shunsuke Kikuichi's background music for the English 5.1 track in their ''Dragon Ball Z'' season box sets, this did not include any vocal [=OSTs=] in the background soundtrack. Those simply played silent. Similarly, their dub of the original ''Dragon Ball'' (whose US soundtrack ''always'' featured Kikuichi's music) also couldn't feature the vocal songs, and the narrator was usually given more dialogue to fill up the silence.
