Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 5").
3 new/extended scenes
+ 2x auditory censorship
Difference: 53.8 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 10th episode of the 5th season - "Peter's Two Dads" - offers a few new scenes (allegedly all cut out for lack of time). Additionally, the TV Version offers 2 scenes with auditory censorship.
According to a few webpages, the first run of this episode on FOX was also missing out on the scene where Peter (coked up on Crack) is shown in the living room. In the broadcast we used for this episode (aired on Cartoon Network) the scene was included.
Time index refers to the TV Version.
Brian in a shocked manner asks "What the fuck?" when he sees him with the crack pipe. As you could already guess, the F-Word was beeped.
No difference in time.
When Stewie drives on the backseat of a car (next to him there's Mother Teresa - obviously coked-up), his demand to "Let me fucking think!" was beeped as well.
No difference in time.
In the DVD Version, the hypnotist calms Pter down before he starts to ask him some questions.
"For starters, why don't you just lay back and relax? Loosen up them trousers. Now, feel the air between them toes. Feel a gentle wind blowing the hair on them legs. Breezing up on through the rest of your body, through your private areas, through your anus."
After the demand to think of the dig up his oldest childhood memories, the DVD Version goes on a little longer.
"...maybe some of them aren't so happy. You know, the anus has the second-highest density of nerve endings in the body. You remember anything? Like maybe being the best at jump rope and not being allowed to win the ribbon just because you was a boy? Or being told everything you made in pottery class was inappropriate?"
Now follows a short conversation with the Irishman: he explains the situation of the two guys who assault each other for years by raising their fists at each other and walking in circles.
Brian: "Hey, what are those guys doing?"
The Irishman explains: "Those are the McMurphy brothers. They've been circling that same spot for 50 years, just daring each other to throw the first punch."
Then you shortly hear the men talking.
