There was no time difference in this episode, differences due to another opening and ending are not counted.

On September 10th in 2005 the smash hit anime "Naruto" started airing in the "Toonami" program of Cartoon Network. However, for a lower rating some edits were necessary.
Yet, the level of editing is really moderate (especially compared to the german which contains almost not a single drop of blood and is also otherwise HEAVILY censored). Usually it's just that some blood has been removed or reduced, the fights itself are usually completly intact.
Besides that the US version had some scenes redrawn. Ususally faces of characters or other minor "mistakes" were corrected, to look more like the manga.


Of course the US version had it's own opener and ending, which was resented by many fans because it wasn't really a song, sounding as good as the original songs used for opening and ending credits. Besides that all the original names were kept, but some are spelled or pronounced not correctly.
Yet, the US version is very good - for a censored version.

About this episode: The edits in this episode focused on the alcohol bottle of Tazunas and the redness around his eyes from being drunk, and on the scene where Naruto slams a Kunai into his own hand. Nothing worth special mentioning.
