Besides obvious ones like THX1138 or Star Wars, there's a clip in The Lion King that was altered for DVD and subsequent releases.

The Laserdisc of Aladdin might also have unaltered lyrics for one of the songs but that's just a guess.

Oh right, yeah, I forgot about the LE DVDs. Despite the fact that I own them. Doh!

But anyway, I was just gonna mention the redrawn crocodiles, but looks like they've tinkered with The Lion King a bit more than that. There's a full list here .

And since I'm talking Disney, they also altered Knickknack, one of the old Pixar shorts, for DVD and blu-ray releases of Toy Story, but the original version is on the CAV box set. They re-rendered the girl statues' bοοbs off.

Ransom (1996) on LD includes a extended cut up to 20 minutes longer than what is seen on DVD or Blu-Ray. Most people say it helps flesh out the film too.

Dead Poets Society (1989) (Uncut) [7821 AS] has a 144 minute cut on LD where all other versions are the theatrical cut of 129 minutes. There are also 2 editions of "Outrageous Fortune", one which gives top billing to Shelly Long and the other to Bette Midler . The only differences are the jackets, and opening/closing credits. All DVD editions are the "Bette Midler" version.

Enemy Mine (1985) German PAL laserdisc contains the German theatrical version which runs longer than the US version released worldwide on DVD.

Solar Crisis (1990) Japanese edition is a different, longer version than the international/US release (also has a different, longer ending). (In-)famous for being an "Alan Smithee" film, the Japanese version is actually signed by the real director (Richard C. Sarafian).

The Laserdisc of Aladdin might also have unaltered lyrics for one of the songs but that's just a guess. In Lion King, there was a star cluster in the sky that was supposed to have an easter egg saying SFX. People saw it and though it red SEX. That was changed for later releases.

Aladdin had some lyrics changed due to depictions of Arabs, but I believe the change took place between the Theatrical Run and the first home video release. Its on the original release of the OST though. The biggest change was when Aladdin whispered into the Tigers ear in one scene where people took as Aladdin saying something about kids taking their clothes off or something. I think that was edited for later releases.

Here's a list about changes made in Disney releases. IIRC, most restorations Disney did after the analogue era (1995 on) changed a lot of things about their films (color temps, Aspect ratios, framing, replacing original animations). The only film affected by this was Snow White. It never had a home video release before the 1994 one and it was the restoration that set the template for later ones. The films from the Disney Renascence era made it mostly unscathed since no major changes were made until their DVD releases.

IIRC, all the content on the CAV Criterion of Ghostbusters ( CC1181L ) has never appeared on any other edition of the film.
