Who Cut Roger Rabbit?

The infamous deleted "pigs head" scene from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?  Despite what the reviewer says, the scene was cut not because it was horrifying, but rather because the movie was running long.  Nobody knew at the outset if this film would appeal to adults, children, or both. Disney/Spielberg wanted to keep the movie's length to around 90 minutes. That being the typical length for a children's movie.  So many good scenes, including this one, got cut.
