Goofs
In one of the dungeons, you will receive a hint that the enemy Pols Voice dislikes noise - yet blowing the whistle does nothing to hurt the enemy. The Famicom (the original Japanese version of the NES) had a microphone, and the player could make noise in it to kill these enemies. As the American NES aborted this feature, this was not possible. Nintendo went ahead and translated this hint verbatim, but because of the lack of a microphone in the American NES, it no longer made any sense and was often misinterpreted.

Q
What are the differences between the censored NES Version and the Uncensored One?
A
Sexuality, drugs, violence and religon are things which are most likely to be deleted from Nintendo games. Because of the fact that the Legend of Zelda uses religious symbols the NES versions were edited. A comparison can be found here.
