1.0 out of 5 stars For goodness sake, read the reviews!, December 22, 2008

This review is from: The Muppet Christmas Carol (DVD)
I was happily watching my VHS copy of The Muppet Christmas Carol with my lovely wife the other evening and decided it was time to own it on DVD. I popped open my laptop and ordered it as the movie was playing on the TV. Sadly I did not take time to read the reviews before placing my order because if I had known that the song, "When Love is Gone", was omitted from the widescreen version, I would have saved my money. So I can watch the complete film by choosing the 4:3 aspect ratio option but the image quality is vastly inferior to the 16:9 presentation. Basically I paid fifteen bucks for nothing. Thanks a bunch, Disney. Bite me.

From imdb/com, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104940/alternateversions :

When originally showed in theaters, the song "When Love Is Gone" was cut due to pacing reasons. It was reinstated on all full screen home video copies of the film, including the laserdisc, VHS home, and first DVD release, at the insistence of Brian Henson. For the Kermit's 50th Anniversary Edition DVD, both the full screen version including "When Love Is Gone" and the widescreen version that, true to the theatrical release, cut the song were featured on the disc.

For timing reasons, the song "The Love Is Gone" is missing from most TV versions.

The musical sequence "The Love is Gone" is missing from the UK DVD versions of the film.

I was thrilled when I saw the widescreen had that godawful "song" cut... worst song in Muppet history.

Hi Jay, have you tried another DVD of this movie that has that song in it? I would love this on DVD, I've always loved the movie and would hope everything is there on the DVD. I actually have this recorded on the DVR but didn't notice this one missing... I just looked at it on youtube and Belle can't sing... probably why I forgot about it lol
