Compared are the cut episodes on the US DVD by Lions Gate / FOX and the uncut episodes on the German DVD by Warner Home Video.
4 cuts = 1 minute and 18 seconds.
There is no need to make many words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". You doesn't know it has at least heard of it even though it has been quite some time since something new from the ALF universe was released. Anyway, the show consists of 4 seasons and aired in the late 80s and early 90s. Furthermore, there are two animated series ("ALF: The Animated Series" & ALF Tales) and a motion picture from the mid 90s.
As to the US Versions, a few minutes of each episode were cut for syndication in order to show more commercials. Unfortunately, these syndication versions were also released on DVD. Understandably, the fans were disappointed that the DVDs do not contain the uncut episodes. Whether or not the uncut episodes will be released one day (perhaps on Blu-ray?) is the million dollar question.
Howard: (Would you like to tell us what brought you to our meeting?)
Willie: I just thought I'd sit here and listen, if you don't mind! It's my first time!
Howard: Well, Willie, the way it works is that everyone takes their turn speaking! See, that puts us all on an equal footing! Besides, there are some who might resent you if you didn't!
Betsy: I know I would!
After Willie yanked the dish towel out of ALF's hand, he also says: If you had eaten that dish towel, I would have been very angry! That's a sentence I never thought I'd hear myself say!
He looks around and says in panic: Where's Kate? ALF explains: She went to get more pate, but I told her there's still half a can of cat food left in the fridge!
During the group conversation, Willie adds: You see, uh, I don't get out all that much! And, uh, I think I must feel kind of bad about that, don't you think?
Ron: Are you afraid of open spaces? Or is it the crowds and the germs and the pushing and the touching and the sweating...
Howard: Ron, put that back! Be strong! This isn't the time to backslide!
ALF's conversation with Willie in the kitchen is longer:
Alf: I miss my family, my friends! Party games you'd never let me play in a million years!
Howard calls for Willie from outside.
