  • Edited for Syndication: Most versions edit Baldrick's speech about a dog being used as Jesus for the Nativity play to remove a line in which Baldrick says the dog will be nailed to a cross for Easter. The earliest known case of this edit was on its first rerun in December 1989. The same version was used for later terrestrial broadcasts when the special aired on Christmas in the years 1998, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2012. The edited version is also seen in the Blackadder Ultimate Edition DVD set, on the UK channel Gold since 2018 (the uncut version was screened until 2017) and, as of 2016, is on Hulu Plus. The original uncut version can be seen on the Region 1 U.S. DVD set, and on the U.S. and UK versions of Netflix.

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: If you think the DVD version is safe, think again. The Blackadder Ultimate Edition DVD set has it cut. The good news is that Netflix (United States feed), the Region 1 (American) DVD version that's not the Blackadder Ultimate Edition DVD set, and the UK channel Gold have aired the original version.
