Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 4").
1 new scene (duration: 78.9 sec)
Family Guy is a very successful show aired on FOX. Since some jokes are simply too rude to air them on national television, the producers have to censor/cut scenes from time to time. However, they sometimes also cut some jokes away in order to reach the appropiate length for a TV-episode. Therefore, not all the changes that were made are a result of censorship. Nevertheless there still are enough hilarious, outrageous jokes in the show - fans will be in for a good time, weven when watching the TV Version on FOX. (I'm speaking from experience.)
BTW, it airs every sunday evening on FOX. That's really nice because you can also watch the new American Dad episode as well as the new episode of The Cleveland Show. So you've got a terrific triple feature. If you're watching FOX anyway, you can also watch the latest Simpsons episode. After all, what's better than spent your whole evening laughing your ass of while watching the latest episodes of the series by Seth MacFarlane plus some new adventures of Homer & Co?
For the 22nd Episode of the 4th season - "Sibling Rivalry" - the producers decided to delete one scene in order to reach the usual lenght of 22 minutes for the episode.
Time index refers to the TV Version.
There is no longer / uncensored DVD Version of the first 5 episodes of season 4.
After the song about vasectomy, the DVD Version continues with a pretty long scene where Peter loses a bet and therefore has to undergo this kind of operation.
Peter comes into the room and pulls Lois outside; "Lois, I know how to settle our vasectomy dispute."
In front of the door there are 2 old timey cars and Peter announces: "A no-rules funny car race from here to Boston. Last one to Fenway gets snipped."
Lois: "Peter, what the hell? Where did these things come from?"
Cleveland joins them: "They were Loretta's. Please take them, they are no longer funny to me."
Peter already changed his outfit and jumps into the first car; "Go!"
Lois sighs and then follows her husband.
You hear carnival-like music; Peter's car is clearly faster. Lois changes the channel of her radio and you hear Shania Twain's song "You're Still The One".
Meanwhile, Peter passes several cars at full speed, while several cars overtake Lois.
Peter says: "Almost there...eat my dust Lois!"
Then he comes across a sign that says "Duck Boat Tours" and he suddenly brakes. Peter is torn between the tour and the exit ramp leading to Fenway Park.
Next, you see Lois waiting at Fenway Park (she's obviously annoyed), while Peter joyfully reaches for the ducks in the water.
Finally, he arrives and realizes: "Well, it looks like I'm a man with no sperm. But I'll always be a man with no sperm who once had a wonderful day."
According to the audio commentary on the DVD this scene was cut out in order to reach the regular length of 22 minutes.
All in all 78.9 sec
