Does anyone have or know where I can get a copy that still has the when love is gone song in it? I'm gutted they cut it out and I can't find one anywhere.

I don't think it's ever been included in the DVD release, but my vhs copy from 1993 had it! I don't think any further issues of the vhs included it, though. Your best bet is probably ebay, and look for a first release video.
I don't know why they cut it out. I know it's not a typical "Muppet" type song, but it suited the scene (and explained why Rizzo the Rat was crying!)

Yeah, I bought the DVD and noticed they'd cut it. God knows why, as the song they sing at the end is the same song, just 'the love we found' instead of 'the love is gone'.

I'll be checking my dvd copy later I think...

Why did they cut it out?

There's some very obvious editing where it was.

I've bought about three copies in recent years. It's always cut.

It spoils the scene completely. I'll never understand why they did that.

It's in the 10th Anniversary Edition.

This really annoyed me. I've had to prove it existed before - thanks YouTube!

I wondered where it had gone after watching on sky movies the other day. My copy (early 2000's) had it in. Why would they cut, it's part of the plot?

Apparently the original cinema release didn't have it because test studies showed kids got restless. They added it back for the video release but then someone decided after 10 bloody years that nobody would like the film with the song in. So annoying.

Which part does it appear in? After Fuzziwig's party?

I was furious to discover this. I usually pause the film and find the clip on YouTube. How sad is that? I had the original on a video but my parents got rid of it as it stopped working because I'd watched it so much. Does anyone know if it will be in the film if it's shown on TV?

Roobix04 Sun 06-Dec-15 10:59:01

Yeah it's supposed to be just after fozziwigs party. I'm pretty sure it won't be in the film if it's shown on TV.

They show the film at picturehouse cinemas kids club session ( next Saturday at our one- woo hoo grin) and the song was still in it last year. My favourite.

Right, off to check local cinema screenings. I love that buzzfeed number 14
"14. The movie’s “It Feels Like Christmas” is the world’s most joyous Christmas song." Source "common knowledge". Clearly they are a fan too 😀

No muppets but they are showing 'it's a wonderful life'... My other Christmas movie....
