http://www.thexbridge.com/disney99.htmlAnime fans have often complained that companies often cut up and cut out scenes in their favorite films. This may seem bad, but it's nothing compared to the cuts Disney has done. Many of the studio's films on videos and in a few theatrical re-releases have been edited. Some would think for preservation. But, instead of just removing age, grime, and soot from it, they have totally tampered with the product. The studio has mutilated it to the point of unrecognizableness. All due to being "politically correct" or to use the Disney term, making it "family-friendly." They have cut out every instance of smoking, every instance of brief nudity, every instance of gun use, every ethnic stereotype, and every instance of violence, turning it into a bunch of mindless slush.
Movies like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Fantasia, The Little Mermaid, The Rescuers, and 101 Dalmations, and anthologies like Make Mine Music, Melody Time, and The Spirit of Mickey have been cut really badly. Some portions have been cut out in some movies (Pecos Bill lighting up a cigarette in MT and Baby Herman lifting up a woman's skirt in Roger Rabbit) while in some films, entire shorts have been omitted (The Hatfield-McCoy short in Make Mine Music is the most recent example).
Now, I knew that most of the other films mentioned had been tampered with, but has 101 Dalmatians been edited?! If so, what has been cut and is any unedited version available on any form of home media? I have the UK video release from around 1996, which may be the same as the US 1992 video master (we didn't get it till then ), and is that unsnipped?
