"Mrs. Doubtfire" deleted scenes

Alternate and deleted scenes from the blockbuster 1993 film "Mrs. Doubtfire" reveal how the comedy nearly turned into a drama.

That's what the internet discovered when deleted scenes from the film resurfaced online this week, reminding fans just how serious the film's plot - about a man attempting to gain access to his children - actually had the potential to be.

We all laughed heartily at Daniel Hillard's antics as he impersonated an older Scottish lady to try and get close to his kids during a difficult divorce, but we often underestimated the impact the marital breakdown had on his children.

Take oldest daughter Lydia (Lisa Jakub), for example: a deleted sequence from the film shows how her parents' very public squabbling distracted her during a Spelling Bee competition.

And then there's the argument we never witnessed, between Daniel and Miranda (Sally Field), just after she discovered his big secret, which is all the more heartbreaking because it's seen through the eyes of their on-screen children:



As one YouTube commenter put it: We're really glad we saw this, but we're also really glad it wasn't in the movie.

It's Wacky!

It's outrageous!
Fun House,
It's a whole lot of fun,
Prizes to be won!
It's a real crazy show where anything can go!
Fun House,
It's a quiz,

Use your body and your brain!
