    Having watched it on tv first, it feels strange that Bart’s line about how they were all guilty of taking their heritage for granted is not on the DVD. It’s a shame as I like that part and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

      “The speech Bart made about the mob “taking the town’s heritage for granted” was the editorial creation of the network censors in compliance of the FCC’s 1989 ruling that every serial animated television show transmitted include at least 28 seconds of educational content.”

      Whut? What was the 28 seconds of educational content from the other season 1 episodes?

        So it looks like you found that info on the Simpsons wiki, but it doesn’t cite any sources. Might be best to take that with a grain of salt, although that’s as good an explanation as any at this point.

    Really? This is the first time I’ve heard of something being excluded from the DVDs other than Bart’s excuse about having “tourettes” being changed to “rabies”. Does this happen often? I’ve actually been watching the DVDs more often lately because I got sick of missing all the stuff cut from syndication, so it would be frustrating if they were excluding content from the DVDs for some inexplicable reason.

    That line was a last minute request from the network if I remember correctly.

    The Tourette’s joke is still on the UK DVD “Risky Business”
