In the history of the company, Disney employees have always found creative ways to hide little gags in their works.
There is, for example the "Hidden Mickeys"-phenomenon where they like to insert the silhouette of Michey Mouse into other films.
On the other hand, some artist show a more libertine attitude in the way they embed their humour in films. Just have a look at the phallus-shaped towers on the film poster of "The Little Mermaid" or the word "SEX" written on a starry sky in "The Lion King".

In 1988, the animators of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" had some funnier ideas. However, for the later home entertainment versions, the film was edited several times. The worldwide-released DVD version was edited and censored again.

This censorship report compares the TV version (SuperRTL, April 27, 2010 20:15) with the altered DVD version.

The TV version lacks the Touchstone logo and the production companies' titles. Sadly, a nice intro-score by composer Alan Silvestri is missing too.

Altered scene:
Baby Herman leaves the set and very shortly extends his finger as he passes under an employee's dress; for the DVD version, the finger was adjusted.
