Comparison between the TV version and the DVD version, the latter represented by the US DVD set "Season 16"
- A deviating camera perspective
- No time difference
Same procedure as every year: The next DVD set of Family Guy available since December 2018 in the USA contains all episodes of Season 16. Here, too, the episodes are in an extended or simply uncensored version compared to the original TV broadcasts. A sticker on the plastic foil reveals this again. On the DVD set itself there are no further hints.
Episode 1 ("Emmy-Winning Episode") is identical in running time but reveals a rather curious censorship for US broadcast. When Peter urinates on the floor in a TV show, the animation on the DVD is still made unrecognizable with a blur effect but at least you can see his abdomen. The amount of urine was also reduced on TV.
As always, care must be taken with the German release with the same name "Season 16", which has been available since August 2018 - in the box-set are actually only the episodes from Season 14.
When Peter is a guest at "Project Runway", the camera perspective changes here. Only on the DVD you can still see his abdomen including (however blurred) his penis. Peter urinates and Stewie joins in - here, the TV-version also changes the camera perspective but the urine spreads slower and therefore shorter above the ground.
