Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 7").



5 new/extended scenes (2 of them offer alternative footage)
+ 2 scenes with auditory censorship (both offer alternative footage)

Difference: 65 sec (= 1:05 min)


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 4th episode of the 7th season - "Baby Not On Board" - is about 1 minute longer on the DVD.
Again, there's something of everything: cuts due to censorship as well as for lack of time and 2 scenes with auditory censorship. This episode, too, offers extensive cursing (especially during Chris' outburst and Quagmire's final words of the episode).

After Chris talked about the plothole in The Lord of the Rings, they immediately change the topic in the TV Version, while in the DVD Version, Carl and Chris discuss this topic a little longer.

Carl: "Did you like the movie?"
Chris: "Well, that's not the point..."
Carl (stubborn): "Did you like the movie?"
Chris: "Well, of course, I loved the movie. But, look, I'm no writer, but if a fat kid like me with one finger up his nose is bumped by it, you'd think someone would've caught it."
Carl: "So, you didn't like the eagle?"
Chris: "Well, no, I did. The eagle was majestic and beautiful, but sometimes you have to sacrifice spectacle for a coherent storyline."

In the DVD Version, Peter's sentence is a little ruder.

TV: "Plus I've had a lot of time to rub one out, which in space is great..."
DVD: "Plus I've had a lot of time to masturbate, which in space is great..."


In the audio commentary, Seth MacFarlane says that they had to prepare a list full of alternative expressions and the final expression for the TV Version had to be approved. He also jokes about the fact that no one seemed to have a problem with the following sentence ("like living in a snow globe").

Before the family gets in teh car, you in the DVD Version see Peter wakes his family with a trumpet. Chris snaps.

Peter: "Everybody up, we're going on vacation. Car's leaving at 6:00 a.m. sharp."
Meg and Brian pass him and when Peter realizes that they're annoyed, he blares in their direction again. Then comes Chris.
He stops and shouts at Peter: "Fuck! You blow that fucking horn again, I swear to God, I will ram that fucking thing up your goddamn ass!"

Stewie says something about the poop in his diaper, followed by a flashback.

"It's just sitting there, like Joseph on his wedding night."
That's exactly what you see - the frustratet Joseph sits on the couch.
In the background you hear something repeatedly thudding against the wall.
Joseph: "Happiest night of my life, honey..."
The thudding gets faster and he adds: "Really memorable...almost done in there, God?"
You hear god from the other room: "Shut up!"
Then you see a closer shot of Stewie; something knocks at the door and he anxiously says: "Intruders?"


In the TV Version you immediately hear the knocks and Stewie asking "Intruders?"


DVD Version 14.9 sec longer

In the TV Version, the credits roll during the scene of Cleveland and Quagmire in the basement.
In the DVD Version, the credits roll after this scene on a plain black background - this explains the additional difference in time.



Alternative Footage
21:40-21:43

This scene was changed as well.


In the TV Version Cleveland says "Did I tell you I'm getting a spin-off?"
(Hinting at the fact that the first season of The Cleveland Show was about to air soon.)

In the DVD Version, Quagmire snaps because of the text from the TV that's constantly repeated; "Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck!"

No difference in time.
