Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 5").
1 scene with alternative footage (for lack of time)
+ 1 auditory censorship
Difference: 0.8 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?
The 5th episode of the 5th season - "Whistle While Your Wife Works" - was censored twice in order to be appropriate for American television.
On the one hand, there's a pretty typical American censorship which you will also come across when listening to the Radio Version or watching the music video of the song "Let's get retarded" (= "get it started") performed by the Black Eyed Peas or Episode 4x06 ("Petarded"). The very disliked word for mentally handicapped was not deleted from the original soundtrack - instead, they replaced the whole scene by a different (yet still pretty similar) sequence; Stewie says something different. It's interesting to see that incest apparently was a more appropriate topic than handicaps.
Additionally, the infamous F-Word was beeped during one of Stewie's dialogues.
Time index refers to the TV Version.
After Jillian - voiced by Drew Barrymore - showed her stupidity for the first time (she says that she saw a TV show about a guy named Hitler and thinks that "Somebody should stop him!"), Stewie passes an alternative comment about this. The animation (in this case the movement of the lips) is different and the TV Version's sequence is a little longer.
TV-Fassung: "Are her parents brother and sister?"
DVD-Fassung: "Is she retarded?"
TV Version 0.8 sec longer
The F-Word was beeped during the following dialogue:
After Brian pushed Jillian out, Stewie again comments on her stupidity (this time he laughs loudly): "It's like she's fucking five!"
No difference in time.
