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.
Katherine: (I cannot believe you exploded a dozen eggs in our microwave!)
Alf: (Don't worry! I'll lick it clean I always do!)
Katherine: I will thank you to keep your tongue off our appliances!
Alf: Fine! Another arbitrary rule!
After Willie told about Lucky's death, Katherine says that Brian will be heartbroken.
When Willie and Alf talk in the garden, there is a missing sequence.
Trevor: Hey, Tanner, what's going on out there?
Willie says that Alf should hide. He walks to a table and before he uses it to hide, he says: By the way, that's Trevor's weed wacker! Play dumb!
Willie: (The want ads here are full of people who are giving away all sorts of pets!)
Alf: Giving away?
After Alf said that somebody should give him a bucket so that he could throw up in order to prove that he did not eat a cat, some dialog had been cut out:
Lynn: We'll take your word for it!
Katherine: It makes me sick to even think that you would eat a cat!
Outside we can hear Trevor yell in front of the door.
Lynn: Maybe we can get the Ochmoneks to take them!
Alf: They'd be better off on the freeway!
Alf hides under the table while Katherine opens the door.
Katherine: Well, hi Trevor, Raquel!
Trevor: Hi Kate! Hey, Willie! Raquel and I are going treasure hunting in Malibu! You guys wanna come?
Raquel: We're gonna hang around outside Larry Hagman's house! Last week I found a watch! Look!
Katherine: It's lovely!
Raquel: And I can wear it in the shower!
Willie: Well, as exciting as that sounds we're kind of busy! We've gotta find a home for these kittens that were suspiciously left on our doorstep!
Trevor: We'd take one, but Raquel's allergic! She breaks out in these big red welts that drip!
Raquel: Trevor, please! Some things are private!
Trevor: Then why did you pose for the cover of that medical journal?
Raquel: I was young, and I needed the money!
Willie: Aren't you gonna lose the sun soon?
Trevor: Good point! See you later!
Raquel and Trevor leave. After Katherine closed the door, Alf comes up from under the table.
Alf: You know, we should spring for an electric fence!
Katherine: We know all about your love of cats, Alf! That's why we just sent one home with "Les Miserables!"
Alf: No, I'm serious!
After Alf begged to be allowed to keep the cat, Willie says: Well, I don't think it would be a good idea in light of everything!
Alf: But he's my friend! You don't realize how close you can get with someone until you've had their head in your mouth!
Willie: You should really have somebody else do your arguing for you!
