  • US Version
  • German Version
Release: Dec 29, 2014 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Mr Miau - 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:

9 cuts = 2 minutes and 50 seconds.

There is no need to make many words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". You doesn't know it has 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 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 to 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.

Willie and Lynn sit in the living room. Alf is standing at the kitchen window and watches Katherin working.
Katherine: Alf, don't you have something else to do besides stare at me?
Alf: No!
Katherine: Fine!
Alf: Why do you wash dishes before putting them into the dishwasher?
Katherine: I'm not washing them! I'm rinsing them!
Alf: Doesn't the machine have a rinse cycle?
Katherine: Yes! It's after the wash cycle!
Alf: You wanna run that by me again? Katherine seriously looks at Alf.
Alf: I guess we're all a little testy without the TV!

Willie: (The factory is in... Libya!)
Alf: Libya? Is that near Bakersfield?
Willie: It's closer to Egypt! Apparently, the guarantee is void unless the work is performed at Moamar Electronics! And I have to pay the shipping cost!
Katherine: Well, honey, what kind of guarantee is that?
Alf: I'd say a bad one!
Willie: All right, I didn't read the fine print, all right?

Alf: Even if it is true? That does it! I quit!
Lynn: You quit what?
Alf: I don't know yet! But when I do, just try to talk me out of it! Alf geht beleidigt davon.

Brian: I hope so!
