The recent airing of "You Only Live Twice" during the Bond Picture Show on ABC, featured some differences. The opening song by Nancy Sinatra was altered to have the song sound like it is going a little faster. New opening credit graphic titles were created in the Lydian Font. (The original theatrical prints featured them in the Flare Gothic font.) The arrangement of the credits remained the same. Maurice Binder's original opening background designs were unaltered.
The 1995 MGM/UA video release includes English subtitles for Japanese dialogue heard during the scene where Bond is turned into a Japanese fisherman. Some TV prints do not have these subtitles.
The mid-1970s broadcast on ABC was confusingly reedited in places, and in fact placed the pre-credits scenes AFTER the opening credits, save for a few seconds shown prior to the theme song.
The 1992 MGM/UA UK VHS widescreen edition crops the gun barrel sequence and the opening shot of the space capsule into a 4:3 ratio within the widescreen picture. The cropping is removed when the scene cuts to the astronauts, thus showing the full widescreen image.
