CAN SOMEONE, anyone, please explain why Christmas cartoon shows are edited?

All year long, I wait for my favorite show to come on - it's "A Year without a Santa Claus" - and this year was no different. I have been watching since I was a child. (The Heat Miser character is my favorite.)

I set my DVR so I can enjoy this all year long - so what happens? You guessed it, it's cut!

I understand the whole commercialization of Christmas thing, but come on, to cut a cartoon - that is over the top!
