The American version had a brief (less than one second) scene of Old Fred and the Mayor dancing together happily, bringing closure to the initial scenes of the movie. This footage was not included in the redone American version.
The European version contained one extra song, "Hey, Bulldog!", deleted from U.S. prints. This version was re-released to theatres worldwide in 1999 in a digitally restored print with a re-worked soundtrack, plus the "Hey, Bulldog!" number in its original context.
The British release of the movie had a different ending to the American (and subsequent video) release. Apart from different individual scenes, the American ending has a softer and more considerate feel to it, due to the final conversion of the Chief Blue Meanie to Love, Peace and Music; the British version contains no such sentiments.
One version of the movie has a sequence with the song "Baby You're a Rich Man" where the Beatles and their Sgt. Peppers look-alikes are dancing after being released from the "glass ball"
