During the first Indian guide meeting, Ben nicknames Jack after his pet. In initial releases he gave the name Numb Nuts for his pet squirrel. Alternately (for television) Ben gives the name Butt Head after a goat.
In the scene where Jack is on the cot and it breaks, he says "This sucks," but when the movie was aired on the Disney Channel, he says, "This stinks."
The Disney Channel version also has an entirely different scene, in which the Indian Guides play a game called "I've Always Wondered", where they discuss things that they've always wondered. This more subtly achieves what the NBC television version does with Jack's speech in which he pretends to be an Italian actor playing a Native American. There are additional small changes in the Disney Channel edit that enhance the film.
