ALF

4.20 Mr. Sandman

Comparison:

  • US Version
  • German Version
Release: Jun 22, 2015 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: DaxRider123 - external link: IMDB - more from this series
Compared are the cut episodes on the US DVD by Lions Gate / FOX and the uncut episodes on the German DVD by Warner Home Video.

The differences:

7 cuts = 1 minute and 4.5 seconds
1 alternative scene = 13 seconds

One certainly needs to make no words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". Even those who have not seen it have 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 was 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 for 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.

When Willie and Katherine look at very old broken tools from centuries ago which they had found, Alf says to Lynn that this will one day all be hers. The US Version misses out on Lynn laughing and saying: I pass!

Willie: I can't help it! I just... It's like I hear his spirit calling me: "Willie, go get it! Gold! Give my life some worth!"
Katherine: Okay, Willie! And with the money we'll buy a farm, and we'll build a baseball diamond in our field of corn! And maybe Shoeless Joe Jackson...
Willie: All right! All right! But, look, wouldn't it be educational for the kids? Wouldn't it be getting in touch with our ancestral roots? What about it, kids?
Lynn: I don't know, Dad! I'd be more interested if we had ancestors in, oh, say, Aspen!

Alf: Again, I must insist that you put down the shovel!

German Version:
Alf: Again, I must insist that you put down the shovel!
Willie (desperate): How could you make a mistake like that?
