ALF

4.03 Wanted: Dead or Alive

Comparison:

  • US Version
  • German Version
Release: May 29, 2015 - 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:

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!)
Lynn: (No!)
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!

Alf: I didn't spoil it! It ends with his girlfriend going insane and singing about corn! It was Shelley Winters' finest moment!
Lynn: Alf!

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!
