The cut of RoboCop I've seen on TV has the most hilarious dialogue edit.  When Clarence is yelling at Bobby for burning the money in the armored van, someone changed the dialogue to this:

"It's as good as lard now, you assHEAD!  You stupid, stupid assHEAD!"

Yes, they changed "a***ole" to "asshead".  Since he's still saying "ass-", which is what you'd figure censors would be worried about, I'm not sure what the point was.

And, speaking of Halloween 2, in a TV edit I've seen, they don't show Michael stabbing the one nurse in the neck and picking her up.  So, it looks like he just picks her up and drops her.  Someone even dubbed in a female voice going, "oohhh ..." to make it seem even more like she survived!

Apparently on TV the word "ass" gets a double naughty word score when "-hole" is added to the end of it.

It's like the old George Carlin line about how you can say "p**sed off" on TV but not "p**sed on". You can only say half the sentence, "I'm p**sed off because you p**sed on me!"

Another one that makes me chuckle is when somebody says "god damn" and they edit out god but leave the damn.

Here in Germany I saw Fortress withou the Ending, the whole truck scene and everything afterwards was cut out.
It was slashed vividly before.
Also I have the grace of a TV programme Magazine which sometimes comments on the lengths of the cuts.
And to make matters worse a friend gave me a dvd-box as a gift where you can read on the backside how muchsome films where cut because the restored uncut german version switches to english for the scenes which were left out in the transition. REcord is The last House on the left a film that in german is only 64 Minutes long and should be 84 or original cut 91 Minutes.

The TV edit for The Hard Way, a recurring phrase is "slug-in-a-ditch".

The Dumb and Dumber one has always been a favorite

I also agree with Mallrats... however better than that was watching CLERKS on fox

The scene when Randal orders the porns was left in... just no dialogue at all for 2 minutes.

I remembered hearing a rumor that Kevin Smith requests editing his movies for TV because he likes to see how badly he can edit them... I don't know how true that is but I wouldn't put it past the guy... he's kind of the anti-hero for cinema (or at least was in the 90s)

You'd think they'd lop off the "god" instead (some TV edits of stuff I've seen do it that way), since invoking the name is what draws the ire in the first place. Among religious people I know, saying "damn" on its own is nothing compared to saying "goddamn" or variations.

Someone mentioned The Wild Bunch earlier, I remember the edit on the Turner channels that in the opening shootout during the temperance parade they reused the same footage of windows being shot out and members of the gang quick firing their pump shotguns over and over and over. The scene appeared to be roughly the same length and they left the audio untouched, I think.

My all time favorite has to be The People Under the Stairs when I caught it on TNT some time back.  The part where the kid yells, "I'm gonna kick your ass!" Instead he says: "I'm gonna kick your a-BUTT!"  I was just about rolling on the floor. 

Other than that, there's the TV edit of Robin Hood: Men in Tights.  I sh*t you not, they didn't edit the racey stuff, just all the punchlines.  I still cringe when they deleted Ulman saying , "Yeah, it used to be Sh*thouse!" In effect, it came out as:

Prince: You mean you changed your name to Latrene?
Latrene: Yeah.

And that was it.  The bang was completely gone.  It hurt so much watching the flick...

ITV showed a version of Smokey And The Bandit some years ago and replaced the Jackie Gleason swearing with scum bum.

Many a moon ago (probably late '70s early '80s) WOR (channel 9 in NY City) showed Uptown Saturday Night.  In the scene where the club gets robbed, (IIRC) the robbers make everyone take off their clothes -- stipping down to their underwear.  One young woman said that she didn't wear underwear -- they still made her take her dress off.  Sure enough, she wasn't wearing a stitch of clothing.  Full frontal nudity on broadcast tv! Cheers  The censor must have been distracted at the moment, it was purely gratuitous -- not that I had any objection.

I guess this is a bizarre non edit.

I think that version makes the rounds on cable over here as well. Most of Gleason's best lines (all the swearing) are dubbed by someone who sounds more like Fred Flinstone than Gleason's Buford T. Justice. It's a nice attempt but noticeable enough to be distracting.

Now I remember the worst cut I witnessed ever, in Ghostbusters when Bill Murray starts (I know it only from german so this is only translated),
well perhaps we misjudged this Marshmallow Man he is new in town, he is Sailor , we should organize something to shag for him and he will be happy" they cut it to well perhaps we misjudged this Marshmallow Man.

My favorite, and the one I can remember is when Lady Sylvia Marsh (Amanda Donohoe) and Kevin are in the car listening to some headbanging music, and she says: "How do you rate the music?"--And he says: "I'm not really into headbanging." And then she says: "Are you into any sort of banging." And when they showed this on television, they bleeped out the entire conversation. But, to make the edit even stranger, the same broadcast on television, left in most of the nudity and violence in "Lair of the White Worm."

Television censorship really doesn't make alot of sense alot of the time.
