The following scenes were never shown in theaters, video, or DVD; only on television:
Ted removing his jacket to use it as a cover for the puppies he and Emily were placing in a cardboard box.
Ted and Emily are trapped in the apartment garage (where Regina and Floyd reside), so they try to open the garage door by stepping on a wire that opens it, but to no avail. However, Beethoven chews on the wire, which causes the garage to open.
After George Newton finds out about the puppies, the next scene shows him stapling fliers on each tree saying "Puppies for sale", while Emily secretly takes them off one-by-one, then attempts to potty-train them next to a hydrant, but it becomes very difficult for him.
The Newtons were packing all of their belongings and gear into their car before leaving their house.
After the McDonald's scene, the Newtons are singing car songs.
During the stay at their lake house, Ted secretly picks out air fresheners from the local convenience store.
Emily telling her mom that she taught their puppy Tchaikovsky, but he doesn't really follow her at all afterwards.
At Taylor's party, it shows Beethoven struggling to get free from the support beam, with the glass bottles shown shaking frequently. Although the scene where the three party guys are shown pouring beer onto Beethoven is edited out (but not in the final cut of the film).
During The fair scene when George is eating the kids show up to take him to the eating contest with Beethoven,the scene originally ends with George saying "What kind of a contest is it where you just sit?" however there is an extended version which shows them walking away with Ted saying "C'mon Dad"
After George's nightmare sequence of a lot of puppies in his living room, the Newton family's commercial airs on their TV and they all begin to watch it. The difference here (compared to the final cut of the film) is that once the doorbell rang (after the commercial), Ryce stands up quickly from the couch and answers the door, instead of her shouting, "I'll get it!"
The entire Newton family of Charles Grodin, Bonnie Hunt, Christopher Castile, Nicolle Tom, and Sarah Rose Karr are back in their roles from the first Beethoven movie. That lovable slobbering St.Bernard is also back and he's now a family man.
In the first Beethoven movie the star has a leading lady who is a female of the same breed. But now Beethoven's beloved is the object of a custody battle between Debi Mazur and her ex-husband. Mazur doesn't really want the dog, she's just using her as leverage. Now Beethoven becomes a daddy when the female gives birth to four handsome young pups.
This of course is a bad situation, but the Newtons one and all take a hand and families human and canine are stronger than ever.
Debi Mazur does her best Cruela DeVille imitation in her performance and she's Cruela if Cruela came from Bensonhurst in Brooklyn. Her boyfriend Chris Penn is muscle head with his little gray cells few and far between. They deserve each other, but they're pretty funny too. Mazur looks like she's enjoying herself.
Best moment for me though is Nicolle Tom when young rich player Ashley Hamilton invites her up to his bedroom for a quick romp. Beethoven rescues her in a truly spectacular manner. Those St.Bernards are really strong animals.
Beethoven's 2nd even got some Oscar recognition in the Best Song category for The Day I Fall In Love.
Beethoven's 2nd may not have pleased the critics, but it's still fine family entertainment.
