Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 6").



6 new/extended scenes (5 of them offer alternative footage)
+ 1 scene with auditory censorship (offering alternative footage as well)

Difference: 102.4 sec (= 1:42 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 8th episode of the 6th season - "McStroke" - is one of the last 3 episodes that aired without having Seth MacFarlane's say-so (still because of the writer's strike). Again, you don't really notice the difference, the episode was not really altered heavier than any other previous episode. The alterations often range between censorship and shortages because of breaking the mold of 22 minutes. In the audio commentary, Seth MacFarlane also says that they edited the music a little for the DVD Version; however, this won't be mentioned any further in this report.

When Meg asks Peter what he has in his face, he responds differently.

TV: "It's a mustache, Meg!"
DVD: "Meg, it goes by many names. Soup Strainer, Lip whiskers and, until recently, Giant Horse Vagina. But I prefer the term mustache."

In the TV Version Stewie directly says: "Okay, it's a bet!"

In the DVD Version he first forces Brian to do a little bet: "Okay, and if I win, you have to go online and download that footage of the dancing baby from Ally McBeal and you have to forward it to all your friends with the message 'Oh, my God, look what I just found online! Isn't this the funniest thing you've ever seen?' So, is this a bet?"

After Peter had a little discussion with the Italian man, the DVD Version shows an additional scene.
Peter is on a secret moustache-meeting lead by Tom Tucker.

A shot of the city; then you see Peter in a side street. He goes to the door and through the small gap in the door you can see Tom Tucker's moustache.
Peter: "Hi there. Is this the Quahog Mustache Society?"
Tom: "Yes, it is. What's the secret password?"
Peter: "Mustache."
Tom: "All right. Come on in."
Peter enters the room.
Now you see Tom's speech: "Good afternoon, mustache wearers. Don't forget to help yourself to the buffet. There's spaghetti and meatballs, powdered donuts and bubblegum."
Dr. Hartman (who's in the audience): "Point of mustache."
Tom allows him to speak: "The chair recognizes your mustache."
Dr. Hartman: "Have we discussed what to send Wilford Brimley next month, as it is the 70th birthday of his mustache?"
Tom: "Oh, I think we just send him a nice card. Just make sure it has a mustache on it."
Peter puts his hand up: "Point of mustache."
Tom: "The chair recognizes your mustache."
Peter: "What can we, as citizens, do about mustache awareness?"
Tom: "Good mustache question. We have a new product in our mustache catalog that makes a great stocking stuffer. We call it the Must-Stash. The slogan is: 'You must stash your Must-Stash in the mustache.' That'll be all for today. Good mustache."
They all agree: "Good mustache."

After Peter left Brian is shown half a second longer in the TV Version.


The DVD Version shows a scene of the "giant horse vagina" that was already mentioned.

Peter is standing next to the 2 firemen.
Peter (baffled): "Uh... Okay, you just want me to spray the water at the fire and try to put it out?"
One of the firemen says to the other one: "He knows everything about what we do."
The other one responds: "Of course he does. Look at that giant horse vagina!"
The leave the screen and go towards the fire.

In the TV Version you only see the car and Stewie and Connie inside of it.


By contrast, the DVD Version has a short panning shot towards them. The camera passes a lot of cars that all wiggle and you hear several girls moaning "Ow! Ow! Ow!" - you also see the respective sign that says "Anal Point".

The DVD Version shows an additional scene - you see what is going on inside a test room of McBurgertown.
"And in here, we're test-marketing a new mascot, Meaty, the Quick to Anger Clown."
Inside the room you see a clown standing in front of a bunch of kids; "Hey, kids! Who likes McBurgertown burgers?"
One kid directly puts his hand up: "I do!"
The clown shouts at the kid: "There was more to my question!"
The kids start to cry.

Then they go on and the company employee says: "We're still ironing that one out."


The TV Version directly cuts to the "Restricted" room. The first few seconds are different since they deleted the "Test Room" sign and the company employee looks to the front.
