Bill and Ted's Bogusly Deleted Adventures


OK, credit goes to Bill and Ted's Excellent Online Adventure, which has become the OFFICIAL Bill and Ted site, check it out for more in depth info on some of these snippets.

Here are some videos and pictures of deleted scenes which have yet to officially surface on any DVD release of B&T. Some scenes are complete and some have been restored using scenes from the comic book which follow the original script. I've also posted the intros to the animated and live action TV adaptations of Bill and Ted.

First some pics from Excellent Adventure... Here they are, playing air guitar at the bus stop, which was intended to be the introduction scene to Bill and Ted.

They take the bus to school...



.and have a little conflict with a bully/jock...


and at their lockers, they ask out a couple chicks to the prom and get rejected...



...here's a promo pic with the cast from the bully scene outside...

Here are shots from an extended scene involving more interaction between Bill and crew and the cavemen, this is probably where they get the gum we see them chew...

and a shot of a clipboard that Bill had been using to keep track of the historical figures

The history report originally occured in the classroom...







...and the movie originally ended with B&T going to the prom with the princess'...


And now for some pics and scenes from Bogus Journey...

When they go to hell, they meet a demon...
...who tells them they have to break rocks for eternity...
...and pulls a rat out of his mouth....

Here is that scene reconstructed...

...right after Evil B&T put Missy to sleep, they reveal...

that just for fun, they've disguised themselves as eachother...



...production pic of that scene...
now, here's that scene reconstructed...

Evil B&T remove their "fear tubes", which embody the fears that B&T had to face in hell.
...those tubes then take shape and later engage B&T on the way to the concert.

...and attack the van, ripping it open, and forcing B&T to face their fears.
And here's part of that scene reconstructed, don't worry, there is ONE scene below that's complete and well worth the watch...
video
And just as I promised, here is a full extended scene in the van while Station constructs the Good Robot B&T's... the cut material @1:53 has to do with Death asking Bill what they want him to do, in reference to the fight coming up- Bill says he can ref...then gives Death his first taste of gum. At the moment, this is the only fully restored deleted scene, which was restored for a TBS broadcast.

OK, now the intro to the shitty live action show FOX crapped out.

And the intro to the not-so-bad cartoon...and when I say that, I am of course referring only to the seasons where Alex and Keanu actually voiced the characters.

Now some fun little factoids:

Rufus never introduces himself to Bill and Ted, future Bill and Ted introduce him by saying "Rufus! Listen to this dude Rufus, he knows what he's talking about." thus creating a paradox.

The original filmed ending of Bogus Journey had Evil B&T killing Bill and Ted over and over, with death bringing them back continuously because of the number of games he lost originally. A snippet of this has survived in a trailer for Bogus Journey in which you see Bill and Ted flung across the stage.

According to CinemaSpy a script for Bill and Ted 3 was in the works and got to pre-production, but the concept was later adapted and reworked into the 1996 movie BIODOME.

Jane Wiedlin, the actress who played Joan of Arc is the guitarist of the Go-Go's, the singing telegram girl in the movie Clue, has a cameo in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, has created a comic book called Lady Robotika and is actually an ordained minister for hire.
