Charlotte's Web (1973) - deleted scene (Swedish version)

In the 1973 animated version of the E.B. White novel Charlotte's Web, there are two 'deleted scenes that were originally used in the film, but cut from surviving prints.

The first scene is shown right after Mrs. Zuckerman phones the typewriter company when Lurvy sees "Terrific" in the spider's web. We then see a group of newspaper boys announcing the second miracle, while riding their bikes through town. During this scene, they pass by a barbershop, a man on a telephone pole, and a school.

The second scene is shown right after we see Avery and Lurvy spot Jeffery trying to get into Wilbur’s crate. The truck stops so Avery can put Jeffery on the ground, and the latter tries to catch up with the truck, but to no avail. His mother then proceeds to lead a disheartened Jeffery and his siblings to the pond for a swim.

For unknown reasons, these sequences were removed from subsequent releases on VHS and DVD, and possibly TV broadcasts. However, it was used for international (non-USA) 1980s VHS releases, particularly in Sweden and Germany. The second scene, in Swedish, can be viewed above. It is currently unknown if an English-language version of these scenes still exists, or if they even appear on UK/Australian VHS releases.
