    I know this was brought up last fall when the Special Ed. dvd was released but unfortunately the search function was down yesterday and again this morning.

    I know Disney changed or edited the 1 800 Spank Me line from the dvd release, but I was curious for those who had the laserdisc if that version was edited as well? I used to own the ld but can't remember if it was edited. I believe it to be the same as the theatrical version. Thanks! [​IMG]

    The Santa Clause has been edited for every home video release even on laserdisc.

    The 1-800-Spank-Me number really did work and some idiots tried it out. Much to the chagrin of the owners who threatened Disney with a lawsuit. So every home video release was altered.

    My VHS copy from when the movie first came out has the 1-800 spankme line in it. The reason I remember is I must have watched the VHS at least 10 times. When I bought the DVD and watched it I noticed the missing line right off the bat. Maybe I got lucky?

    The VHS had the line intact...if the LD came out at the same time, it must have had it too...

    The Laserdisc has the 1-800 number on it. I know, I have the laserdisc and just watched it 3 weeks ago.
