In February 9th 1986 at 6:30 PM, an alternate version had aired on ABC with the title “Time Flyer” as part of The Magical World of Disney. This had 3 scenes that were not featured in the VHS releases, majority of which involve Jonathan exploring the town after he arrives in the 1920’s. This version also removed 4 scenes as well, most of which take place before Jonathan travels back to the 1920’s. The movie has yet to be released on DVD.

He goes inside and asks to buy a quarter pound hamburger, to which the butcher responds that he doesn’t have them. The butcher then gives Jonathan some gum, which Jonathan asks for sugar-free gum. The butcher misinterprets the question, thinking Jonathan wants free sugar. They argue about the gum, with the butcher’s wife joining in. The butcher and his wife finally understand what Jonathan is talking about and ask to leave. The VHS has Jonathan looking at the phonograph shop and asking a barber if he knows where his grandfather Max is. The barber doesn’t and then asks where he got his haircut as Jonathan walks away.
