As many times as I've seen the film, can't recall my ever having noticed the Tar Baby from Song of the South making a cameo. What fun!Song of the South characters actually make cameos in this film, most notably the three moles who accompanied Uncle Remus on "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah." They appear with Peter Pig, who didn't make it as big as his more famous avian co-star in 1934's The Wise Little Hen who appeared earlier in the film playing the piano:
And at the extreme left bottom side of the frame, I just noticed Chicken Little. The real one.
Other cameos from the film:
There was an alteration to actual movie The Little Mermaid unrelated to that poster, which was changed after the VHS release but before the Laserdisc:
There was also something taken out of one of the Shorts. There was one or two frames of Jessica straddling a Log on a wall poster as they are riding down the log flume.
That would not necessarily even be good enough for a Blu-ray, never mind a UHD disc, but it proves that an unaltered film element exists.
I would agree, it's not censorship, it's revision. Much like George Lucas and his Star Wars films, or Spielberg and the E.T. walkie-talkie fiasco.
I don't necessarily like it, or agree with it, but it's not censorship.
And given the content of some PG-rated films of the 80's, I'm not sure it's even necessary.
