In order to achieve the PG-rating by the BBFC the usage of a spray can in combination with fire had to be removed. This concerns a scene in which the brothers Walter and Danny find their older sister Lisa in a frozen condition. In the original version, Walter tries to solve that problem with this combination. The British version uses shorter alternate material where Danny looks at his “frosty” sister a bit longer.

The British viewers do not get to see how the astronaut pours flammable cleanser on the couch and sets it on fire. Again, alternate material was used in the PG-rated version. The kids are seen on the stairs shortly and the astronaut a bit longer while standing next to the burning couch.
