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.
8 cuts = 1 minute and 28,5 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.
Lynn is watching a movie, Alf distracts her. The US Version lacks some dialog here (the sentence in brackets are included though).
Alf: (Thanks! You're a champ! Hand me the remote!)
Alf: (But I've seen this before! The guy gets gang-hoofed by a bunch of really stupid cows!)
Lynn (genervt): Alf!
Alf: Okay, they're smart cows! They just freak in large groups!
Lynn: (Would you be quiet? You're not getting your way just because you spoiled the end of my movie!
Alf: I didn't spoil it! It ends with his girlfriend going insane and singing about corn! It was Shelley Winters' finest moment!
Brian: (Those years are pretty much a blur!)
Alf: Aha! So it's possible he may have gone on side trips to a place called Tallahassee, for instance!
Alf: (Well, I thought it'd be nice to see some new faces around here!)
Katherine: We're happy with the old ones! Thanks, just the same!
Alf: Okay, your call!
Katherineto the FBI agents: (What is this about?)
FBI Agent 1: Can I tell them? Can I tell them?
FBI Agent 2: Go ahead! Knock yourself out!
FBI Agent 1: (Uh, we'd like you to come downtown and answer charges of embezzlement, interstate trafficking, fraud and here's the biggie, polygamy! Get your shoes!)
Katherine: Polygamy? That is absurd! You obviously have the wrong man!
FBI Agent 2: Oh, well, then it's our mistake! Sorry for the trouble! We'll be on our way!
FBI Agent 1: See! Everybody thinks we're just all business!
Some more dialog after Katherine has found Alf in the box.
Katherine: Alf, I don't understand you!
Alf: Did I mention I'm a bleeder!
After Willie asked Katherine to change the topic, Alf says, No, keep going, Kate! Come on, we've both seen him in the shower!
Willie insists: We're dropping this conversation right now, thank you!
