The Spanish-language VHS version of the video was released in the US & Canada on 7/31/2001; it has the same contents as the English VHS video. The Spanish version was released 4 months later than the English and French versions, due to the fact that the film was still debuting in theaters throughout Latin America through July, plus the fact that most of Latin America use NTSC video. To discourage Latin Americans from getting a Spanish video before the theatrical release date in their country, the Spanish video is delayed until the film was released in theaters in all Spanish Latin-American countries.
For those who are curious, the alternate endings explain what happened to Coco & Jean-Claude. In the final cut, we did not learn of their aftermath, but those with a DVD player do. Apparently, these endings were to have been bonus scenes, seen at the end of the film, after the closing credits (similar to Grandpa and the Reptar Wagon at the end of The Rugrats Movie). Here's what happened (special thanks to Don Del Grande):
Ending 1 - Coco and Jean-Claude have new jobs loading passengers into the "Ooey Gooey World" ride; Coco ends up falling into the goo.
Ending 2 - Coco works at a perfume factory, testing underarm deodorants; Jean-Claude opens up a curtain - "time to test the foot powders!"
