Quote from Christmas Carol about Ignorance and Want

There is a difference between the VHS and DVD version of the movie

inverse.com has a good article explaining the discrepancy:

Unsubstantiated reports indicate that it was Disney executive Jeffrey Katzenberg, specifically, who pulled this song from the actual theatrical cut of the film. Director Brian Henson (remember, this was the first Muppets film following creator and visionary Jim Henson’s passing) was horrified by this decision, and insisted it be reinstated for the VHS and Laserdisc release of the movie in 1993.

Correction from the audio: Holly mistakenly called Brian Henson “Peter”. Sorry!
