There is no time difference in this episode. Differences due to the new opening and ending are not counted.

On September 10th in 2005 the smash hit anime "Naruto" made its debut in the "Toonami" program of Cartoon Network. However, for a lower rating some editing was necessary.
Yet, the level of editing is really moderate (especially compared to the German one, which contains almost not a single drop of blood and is HEAVILY censored). For the most part only some blood was removed or its amount reduced. The fights themselves are usually completely intact.
Besides that the US version had some scenes redrawn in order to correct faces of characters or other minor "mistakes" and make the series more look like the manga.

Of course the US version has its own opening and ending, which is resented by many fans because its music background doesn’t sound as good as the original songs. Besides that, all the original names were kept, but some are spelled or pronounced incorrectly.
Nevertheless, the US version is very good – at least for a censored version.

The comparison goes as follows:

About the episode: Only some blood was retouched and although the blood which is coming out of the mouth was removed, the next scene shows how several drops of blood hit the ground.
As before the box looks a bit different and the texts are in a western typeface.

The blood from Ino and Sakura's mouths has been retouched.
