Comparison:

  • US Version
  • German Version
Release: Apr 19, 2015 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: DaxRider123 - external link: IMDB - more from this series
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.

The differences:

3 cuts = 2 minutes and 33 seconds
1 alternative scene = 9 seconds

One certainly needs to make no words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". Even those who have not seen it have 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 was 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 for 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.

After Willie and Katherine entered Lynn's room, a part of the dialog was cut out.
Alf: Just in time! We were discussing sweat! Which side would you like to expound?
Willie: Could we postpone the sweat debate? There's something that Kate and I wanna discuss with Lynn!
Alf: Fine! I'll hie me to yon refrigerator and forage for meat loaf!
Alf walks past Willie and Katherine and walks through the door.
Alf: Later, dude, dudettes!
Lynn: Is something wrong? You guys look upset!
Katherine: I'm afraid we have some bad news, honey!

In the US Version there instead is some alternative footage and a few more pieces of dialog that were cut out beforehand. They are cut back in now, however, in a different order.
