These comparison photos show you that it is not uncommon for Imagineers to switch some of the pirate animatronics, especially during rehabs:

Here are two of the other drunken rogues from the same scene:

I wonder if they used a completely different animatronic, or did they just stick on a different head? Interesting detail.
