OK, I've gone through both full scripts and here's a summary of changes and cuts:
4056-11 "Episode 11": As the original shorts had to be written a lot tighter, there wasn't nearly as much to cut. During the scenes in Skelweb where the Trappeur and the Granites are scaling the giant staircase, Flint Dille does ponder some ways to accomplish the visuals. He suggests that maybe the Granites are "extremely double-jointed, and can almost climb up 90 degree angles like centipedes." He also suggests them using hoverthrusters. In the end none of these ideas were used.
The only cut is a minor one, where we go to Bright and the Park Ranger at the Gettysberg battlefield, just before the statues come to life. The ranger exposits "It's the darndest thing. The statues were stolen four days ago, and now they're back.", perhaps they didn't want to set a specific timeframe for events, especially when these would air weekly. It also establishes the Redwoods being in the background, explaining why they randomly just appear in the next part.
- A fair few establishing shots of Borneo are trimmed off before Sabre Jet's squadron appears "parting the trees like a hurricane and geysering the water (See Firefox FX)".
- After Sslither forces Sabre Jet to crash and the Medevac arrives. We were going to get a shot of his face from within the wreckage. Perhaps a step too far?
- The next scene at Earth Corps HQ is heavily cut down. Bright and Liquidator are working on a formula (the unintentional "love potion") while Bright is being typically insufferable about his intelligence. Auger has had enough: "You know, there's nothing wrong with him that a good swift kick in the pants wouldn't solve. (starts walking toward Bright) And I have half a mind to...". Herc stops Auger by using the Trappeur's claw to grab him by the belt.
- The scene of Metlar chewing out Tendril and D'Compose for their alliance with "flesh slugs" in previous episodes plays out with a different tone. Originally it was more like a parent scolding their children. In the finished episode, he's openly musing about ways to torture them.
- The big action sequence in the Langastoid city and the Inhumanoids getting sprayed with the formula plays out as broadcast. Minus one parting quip as Earth Corps escape and D'Compose is pining for Sandra.
LIQUIDATOR: I never thought I would feel compassion for that monster
AUGER: What's a matter, never seen a guy get dumped before?
- No real further cuts happen until Act III when Earth Corps are watching TV with a net in front of it (For those not in on the gag, Auger has a habit of destroying TVs by throwing his shoe at them), which Herc does reference. The first report they watch is Twenty Questions, where Senator Masterson announces his expedition to rescue the Statue of Liberty. Both he and Hector Ramirez are in "adventurers outfits": pith helmets and khakis. Auger is mid-windup when the report about Stella Blaze being kidnapped comes on, and the TV is spared.
- The scene of Stella inside the fake Tendril, playing along with the real one chatting her up, is extended. Unfortunately, his idea of flirting is to slap "her" with his tail.
- After Sandra is rescued from D'Compose and restored to human, she looks back wistfully and says "No, I'm OK. You know, D'Compose wasn't a bad dancer...."
- Flint Dille re-uses the Perceptor/Magnus joke from TFTM, this time with Bright and Herc before they begin their rescue of Stella:
BRIGHT: My stratagem is elementary, I precipitate upon the anamatronic biomorph and -
HERC: I understood our plan better before you started explaining it. Lets go.
- The last cut is the most intriguing. Where the finished episode ends with Liberty watching TV of the Masterson Expedition and Metlar doing sit-ups. We go from there to a shot of Sslither and Blackthorne saying from off-screen: "About the three wishes due me, Sslither...I now know my first wish...". Fade to black.
