5.09 Road to Rupert (IMDB) OT:
Comparison between the TV Version
and the extended DVD Version
(both included in the DVD Box "Volume 5").
4 nw scenes
+ 1 auditory censorship
Difference: 31.9 sec
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 9th episode of the 5th season - "Road To Rupert"- offers a new scene in the DVD Version (according to the audio commentary, the scene was cut out of the TV Version due to lack of time).
At the end of the episode there's an auditory censorship, when Stewie says the evil F-Word 5 times.
Time index refers to the TV Version. 00:59
On the DVD there's a funny short scene where the man comes to Brian to buy Stewie's teddy Rupert.
At first, Lois is standing in front of him to make a self-ironic reference to the Family Guy movie Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story
and some of the fans' response to it.
Lois: "You know, Brian, I'm looking forward to getting rid some of this crap. Like this movie, Stimy Griffin: The Untold Story
. It's not a movie at all, Brian. Just three episodes, back to back. This thing is an insult."
Brian: "Well, that might be overstating things a little..."
He gives a signal to the side and Lois goes on: "It's a middle finger to the fans, is what it is! I tell you, Fox should be..."
Now, two security guys arrive and lear her off.
After Peter's 80s sitcom "My Black Son", the DVD now shows an additional scene. Stewie still mourns the loss of his teddy and drugged himself with a bottle of cold remedy.
Brian finds the drugged Stewie on the sofa; "What the hell's wrong with you?"
Stewie: "I'm so distraught over losing Rupert, I needed something to calm me down."
Brian looks at the bottle in horror; "This is an entire bottle of NyQuil."
Stewie: "I know and it's doing wonders."
He turns around and absentmindedly says: "Come here, Puss. Come here. Come here, Puss. Here, Puss..."
Brian: "What are you doing?"
Stewie: "Calling the cat."
Brian: "We don't have a cat. That's a throw pillow."
Stewie starts to cry.
The question if one (resp Cleveland) would rather have sex with Queen Latifah or Halle Berry after being dead for 6 hours is answered a little more rudely.
Quagmire: "What did she die of?"
Of all things, Joe pipes up: "I've seen some bodies that have been dead for uh...six hours. Some of them aren't too bad."
Cleveland: "Oh, then...Halle Berry!"
Before Stewie and Brian arrive in Colorado you see a few more stops along their way.
No matter where they stop, you always see the exact same cornfield.
When Brian and Stewie steal a car and throw the driver out of it, Stewies curses were all beeped in the TV Version.
"Get out of the fucking car, get out of the fucking car right now, man!"
(Stewie smashes the window)
"Get out of the fucking car! Do it, do it!"
(The guy is dragged to the ground)
"I'll fucking kill you! Get out of the fucking car!"
No difference in time.
