    In the VHS tape of Babe, I remember a shot of one of the sheep pooping as Babe is talking to the sheep in the pen at the Sheep Trials for the first time. In the commentary, Producer George Miller talks about the poop was man-made and forced out from an animatronic sheep. On the DVD, though, it is missing.

    What's the poop? Was it digitally removed?

    Oh my god. This is the worst case of censorship ever. That's it, I'm on the bandwagon for this one.

    I don't know about the movie, I've never seen it. But that's got to be the funniest title for a forum thread that I've ever seen! Thanks for the laugh. [​IMG]

    I watched this weekend and it was there - twice! I can't remember exactly what scene, but it was towards the end of the movie (within the last fifteen or twenty minutes I think). I remember it distinkly (ew!) because it seemed to me that they just used the same shot twice with different dialogue.

    That's the scoop on the poop!

    Which version were you watching that the scene was missing:
    The original full screen Dolby, full screen DTS, new full screen SE or new widescreen SE?

    A pig also takes a pee in the film as well. Right on the farmer's shoes. And this is a family film? [​IMG]
