Finally tracked down this classic ADM edit in time for a Christmas watch. It's pretty simple: like Elf? Now there's more! Essentially, all the deleted scenes here are added back in:

There's just one that's more of an "alternate" scene that is not included, as the film already has a different (and imho, better) version of it. If there's one performance in this film that sometimes doesn't work for me, it's Bob Newhart's stumbling gee-shucks elf papa. The alternate scene just takes the fumbling and stuttering to a new level that falls flat for me, but you can see the alternate scene in the link above.
The only thing that holds this edit back is that it's quite old. Watching on a laptop like I did, it's fine, but the quality will not hold up on a new HD TV. Otherwise, slam dunk of an edit. Recommended.
