Needs a Better Title
The makers of a film decide to add a joke specific to the big screen format. Unfortunately all meaning to the joke is lost when it's on the small screen.
- Averted with the VHS release of Gremlins II: The New Batch. Instead of the Gremlins invading a movie theatre, they break the VHS tape.
- According to the DVD Commentary of The Powerpuff Girls Movie, when the Professor first creates the girls and stares right up at the screen, they say the joke was that was this giant face was staring at the audience on a giant screen.
- On an episode of Chowder they made a joke about the Cartoon Network channel bug in the corner of the screen. On DVD the channel bug just appears and disappears when the joke comes up. The joke was also later ruined on TV when they changed the logo.
