Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 7").
2 new/extended scenes
+ 2 scenes with auditory censorship
Difference: 13.8 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 US box-set "Volume 7" includes all the TV Versions in the bonus material section.
Unfortunately they took small pains to warp the DVDs this time. All the previous box-sets had a slim case for each disc of the set plus a little slipcase to hold them together. The "Volume 7"-discs were all packed together in one amaray-case. The set does include a listing of all the episodes (without a summary) - however, this listing is on the backside of the cover. An o-ring encases the whole thing. What a pitty.
Besides this minor matter, the rest of the box set is just great - it includes lots of bonus material plus an audio commentary soundtrack for every single episode!
The 12th episode of the 6th season - "Long John Peter" - was only slightly altered. There are two scenes with auditory censorship ("shit" and "fuck" were beeped) and 2 minor cuts. One of them can be called a cut due to censorship (good old problem with "poop jokes" on national television); the other cut was probably made in order to reach the correct runtime.
Time index refers to the TV Version.
The cat says "Look at that shit!" - this was beeped for the TV Version.
No difference in time.
A first dialogue inside the Griffins' livingroom between Stewie and Brian. They talk about the incident at the veterinarian - Brian accidentally swallowed a diaper.
Stewie: "You know, Brian, if you like my poop going into your mouth we can just DO that."
Brian: "Shut up, Stewie!"
Before Chris tells Anna that he loves her, there's another attempt of him trying to have a normal conversation.
Chris: "So, what kind of stuff do you like to do and junk?"
Anna: "Well, I really enjoy some of the music black people have coming up with lately."
Brian says "Fuck you!" - again, a beep in the TV Version.
No difference in time.
