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.
The opening is slightly shorter: the shot from ALF's POV opening a door and entering the room is missing.
Further missing part of the opening: the shot of ALF trying to grab the pie in the fridge plus Kate slapping on his hand because of that is missing.
Lynn: Before we knew them!
Extended shot of Raquel holding up the whoopee cushion she was sitting on.
Willie: Well, how am I supposed to get rid of Mrs. Ochmonek?
Alf: I don't know! Tell her about that interesting fishing trip you went on with your father! That'll do it!
After ALFs prank, Willie angrily opens the door.
After ALF splashed some water on Willie and after Willie went from the kitchen to the living room, a longer dialog follows in the Uncut Version:
Raquel: You're all wet again!
Willie: Yeah! I...
Lynn: Did another pipe burst?
Willie: Yeah, yeah, that's right! Yeah, yeah!
ALF takes a look into the living room from the kitchen. Willie: Oh, Mrs. Ochmonek, would you mind facing the door just for a moment, please?
Willie: Oh, I don't know!
Raquel: I think I'll wait for Trevor by the curb!
After tht comment, she gets up from the couch and runs out the door.
Alf: Never mind! The moment has passed!
Wille angrily throws something on the ground and the camera zooms in on it from an exterior shot of the Tanner house.
Willie is silently sitting on the couch in the practice. The man next to him asks: What are you looking at? Willie looks at him but he doesn't respond.
Lynn and Brian set the table. Willie approaches and says: Oh, Brian, would you get Alf?
Brian: I think he's in the garage!
Alf: (Can you make this fast? I'm in the middle of drying fish!
Alf: Out on the back porch! Why?
Larry and ALF shake hands.
Alf: Nice firm handshake I've got there, huh? Good sign, right?
Lynn: Alf, don't kiss up!
Katherine: Lynnie, why don't you go check the pork chops?
Lynn: Okay! Come on, Bri!
Larry: So, uh, ahem, what do you think of our planet?
Alf: Oh, I like it a lot, Larry! I just wish there was more love and less war! Not something a psychotic would say, right?
Willie: Oh, Alf!
Katherine: So, what's new in your life, Larry?
Larry: Or nothing! Still packing them four deep on the couch!
Alf: Four deep on the couch!
Willie: I think we get the point, Alf!
Lynn: Dinner's ready!
Alf: Oh, good! After a hearty laugh like that, it's time for a hearty meal!
Willie to Larry: Every meal's a hearty meal for Alf! Wait till you see this guy eat!
Alf: Why don't we let our guest sit at the head of the table?
Willie: My, aren't we polite all of a sudden!
The US Version simply contains a longer shot of Larry taking a seat at the table.
US Version: 4 sec
German Version: 73 sec
After ALF burped, Kate tells him to behave. ALF answers as follows: Just making some room for the meal!
Willie: We discuss hair in the food, we discuss what appliances you've broken!
