ABC edited 24 seconds from this film for its 1986 network television premiere.
On the Laserdisc (widescreen) version, the sound effect when the staff lands in the map room after Indy drops it is different from all other versions....
When the film was broadcast in HD for the first time on German TV in 2009, the film featured a new 5.1 sound mix. However, instead of using the old dubbing as the basis for the new mix, the film was completely redubbed. Except for Indiana Jones and Marcus Brody, all roles were spoken by different voice actors than in the original dubbing.
The original 1983 pan-and-scan VHS release, instead of letter-boxing the opening credits like later editions have, the titles all together are changed, made obvious by the different type of font and color.
DVD release cleans up numerous effects shots. The effects aren't replaced, but various visible riggings and matte lines were erased digitally including the reflection when Indy is facing down the cobra.
