Does anyone know yet if there are music replacements and/or edited scenes to remove music?

Since it's a CBS title, it's practically a guarantee that there will be edits and music replacements. It seems that the only CBS titles that haven't been edited are those that are licensed out to other companies like Shout! Factory or VEI.

I wish CBS wouldn't be so harsh when it cam to music.

For people who've never seen this show or haven't seen it in decades, you can check out some of the episodes (if you dare) on YouTube:

No wonder all of it fits in one set, by the time Constantly Butchering is done there will only be maybe an hour or two left of footage, if the music content is to be what I remember it to be. 


"Beatlemania"?  I wonder how they'll get out of this one...

This is a show about music, so they'll probably leave something.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.
