In Gremlins 2 the Gremlins supposedly get into the projection booth and wreak havoc with the film. It snaps and the Gremlin in the projection booth starts making hand shadows.... Etc.
In the home video release, when the same scene occurs, there is a test pattern, the Gremlin then plays in the TV's "White Noise" (Those of you under 30 will have to look that up)
Was this the first time that a scene was changed and adapted for a separate release? I'm not looking for Director's Cuts or remasterings. I'm also not looking for 'edited for TV'. Specifically content changes because of the distribution change.
Both versions are currently viewable online on Youtube in "Jared Jeffries" review of Gremlins 2, "DYAF - Gremlins 2: The New Batch" (Published on Oct 30, 2015):
