I was a child of Disney and we had a VHS copy of the Lion King. I watched it many many times but never saw a song called "The Morning Report" with Rowan Atkinson singing as Zazu but it appears on various CDs and soundtracks I've seen since.

Was this song only released in some versions?

The song was created when the film was made, but cut for the initial theatrical release.

However, it was added in later for some IMAX and home video releases, mainly due to the song being included in the live Broadway production of The Lion King.

It's a damn shame that song got cut. One of my favorite additions in the Broadway musical. –  System Down Sep 4 '13 at 20:01
    
It's definitely a fun little song, but you have to remember that the movie is intended for children, which means running time is generally the highest priority. –  MattD Sep 4 '13 at 20:04
