Added DiffLines:

* The CompilationMovie of ''WesternAnimation/TheDeathOfSuperman'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheReignOfTheSupermen'' also saw trimmed elements restored.

Added DiffLines:

* The original version of Creator/JohnWCampbell's seminal sci-fi classic ''Literature/WhoGoesThere'' was a longer book titled ''Literature/FrozenHell''. The original book was found among some of Campbell's Harvard papers by author Alec Nevalla-Lee and published under its original title as a separate book from ''Who Goes There?'' in 2019 following a hugely successful Website/{{Kickstarter}} campaign.


* ''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer'' has used at least three different endings over the years: one which pays off Yukon Cornelius' pickaxe-licking, one that shows Rudolph and Santa gathering the Misfit Toys, and one that combines both of them. Three versions also exist of the scene in which Rudolph and Hermey become friends, the second containing a completely different song.

* Network reruns of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sometimes differ greatly from the originally aired live show; this can range from minor fixes of technical glitches and removal of promotions for the next live show (especially common when Don Pardo announced them over the end credits), to changes in the running order, to even the removal of controversial or poorly received material, replaced by sketches from other shows or unaired material. Since 1985, the dress rehearsal is recorded for all shows, and the rerun version may either use the dress take or a combination of scenes from dress and air.

* ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' got a recut in 2010 that made it closer to the original Japanese version of the film. All of the ad-libbed dialouge by the characters, mainly Jiji's wisecracks, got removed (which in turn lead to the ending being altered [[spoiler: from Kiki being able to hear Jiji in the end to her not hearing him at all]]), as well as the additional pieces of background music that filled silence (such as the xylophone music in the outhouse scene) and replacing the Sydney Forest songs with the original Yumi Matsutoya songs.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' was first conceived by Creator/RichardWilliams (who would eventually become animation director of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'') in 1964, but spent almost 30 years in DevelopmentHell. Williams eventually signed a deal with Creator/WarnerBros in 1990 to release the film, but they had no faith in it since the film took way too long to release, plus Disney was about to come out with their version of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', so they pulled out. Then, the Completion Bond Company bought the rights to it in 1992, and a year later, producer Fred Calvert with Majestic Films released it in South Africa and Australia as ''The Princess and the Cobbler''. Many of the scenes from Williams' workprint were cut, plus new dialogue, songs, voices ([[SuddenlyVoiced where there really weren't any before]]), and scenes ([[OffModel poorly]] [[ArtShift animated]] by various companies and freelance artists across the world) were hastily added in. In 1995, it would be released in the U.S. by Miramax as ''Arabian Knight'' (later under the original title), where even more was butchered. An unofficial "Recobbled Cut" was made by a fan in 2006 that restored Williams' original vision as much as possible, but Williams has since [[CreatorBacklash disowned the film]] regardless.

* The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' film series:
** ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' has gone through a few editions. Director Creator/RobertWise considered the original theatrical release a "rough cut", due to it being rushed to meet Creator/{{Paramount}}'s premiere date (to the point where the film reels were still wet from developing when they were shipped out). An extended cut appeared on Creator/{{ABC}} and was released on [=VHS=] as a "Special Longer Edition" in 1983, though there were issues with some of the added footage, some of which was from the original version of the "Spock Walk" with different spacesuits (with one shot of Kirk featuring a very visible sound stage).

** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' got a three hour Director's Cut, a la similar to ''Watchmen'' referred to as the "Ultimate Edition". The film's runtime went from two and half hours to three and quite a few things have been changed from the theatrical version, such as a stronger focus on characters like Superman and Lois Lane, a better grasp on Lex Luthor's motivations and his involvement on the subplot in Africa, Creator/JenaMalone appearing as a S.T.A.R. Labs member helping out Lane, an R rating and more. The R rating actually caught Snyder off guard, as he didn't make the film with that rating in mind. While reviews for the theatrical cut were pretty bad, the overall response has improved thanks to the Ultimate Edition, though its a matter of [[BrokenBase debate]] on whether it's actually a good movie, it's a good movie in comparison to the mess of the [=TC=] or if its a bad movie made worse.
