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.
10 cuts = 1 minute and 35 seconds.
There is no need to make many words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". You doesn't know it has 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 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 to 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.
Missing dialog when the seniors encounter ALF:
Rebecca: (Jack, really! Don't you know what that is? It's a talking dog!) I'm sorry for my friends!
Bernie: Do you know what I think? I think he's to make us young! Just like in "Cocoon!"
Rebecca: Oh! I never saw that movie!
Jack: Yes, you did!
Rebecca: No, I didn't!
Jack: We rented it last week! It's the one that Opie directed remember?
Rebecca: Oh, yes! It's an amazing achievement for an 8-year-old!
Jack schlägt die Hände vor sein Gesicht und Bernie sagt zu ihm: Let it go, Jack! Let it go!
After ALF bolted, Rebecca says he was really cute.
Alf: (Do you realize that all you've done since I got here is complain? Now, there's got to be more!)
Bernie: Well, you're the one who broke up the gin game! What's your problem, anyway? Pick, pick, pick!
Alf: I just think you're wasting some wonderful, valuable, precious time!
Alf: (How about I take you on the roof and show you where I'm from? Would you like that?)
Rebecca: This isn't just a trick to use us as sex drones to repopulate your planet?
Jack: Again with that fantasy!
Jack: We're breaking the rules! How does it feel, Bernie?
Bernie: Well, I wish I hadn't taken that water pill!
Alf: Well, as long as it's not windy up there, we're okay!
Alf: (Look, why don't you just come and join the party?)
Louise: (Look, I just don't want to, okay? Isn't there another aging actress you can bother?) Try Milton Berle!
ALF starts singing. It makes Loise laugh, she says: Okay, okay! Wouldn't be so bad if you could carry a tune! ALF is offended and runs off.
When Willie shows up to pick up ALF, Rebecca says to the others:
Oh, look! We have a visitor!
Willie: (What were you thinking? I can't believe you'd expose yourself like this!)
Alf: What? I'm wearing a sweatshirt!
Willie: You know what I mean!
