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.
3 cuts = 1 minute and 58 seconds.
One certainly needs to make no words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". Even those who have not seen it have 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 was 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 for 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.
The intro was shortened. We do not see Alf's point of view when opening a door and walking to into the room.
Another minor part from the intro was cut out when Alf wants to get his hands on the cake in the fridge, but Katherine hinders him.
After his show, Alf looks at Willie.
Willie: May I say, you are the best-dressed dude in the biz!
Alf: Yes, you may! All right, let's bring out my first guest, Miss Sandy Duncan!
The live band and Willie start playing the music and Sandy Duncan enters the studio. The audience claps and cheers. Sandy sits down next to Alf and both of them say hello.
Alf: Hey, nice outfit!
Alf: You buy anything else at Cher's garage sale?
Alf starts laughing.
Alf: Just kidding! What have you been up to?
Sandy: Well, I've been doing a new series called "Valerie's Family!
Alf: Oh, "Valerie's Family!" That's the one where they killed off the mother to give you her job, right?
Sandy: No, no, no, that's not actually that happened!
Alf: Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's your story!
Sandy: No, no, no, really, it wa... Forget it! Alf, it's good to be here with you! I haven't done the show since you got rid of David!
Alf: Well, at least I didn't kill him to get the job!
Sandy: You know, the longer I sit here, the more I miss David!
Alf: Take elevator five, he's running that now!
Alf turns to the camera.
Alf: We'll be right back after this word from our sponsor!
Sandy: Maybe you will be!
Lynn: (So was the orangutan!)
Alf: All that proves is that orangutans don't live well in captivity!
Katherine: Do Aliens?
Alf: I don't know! I've never been captivated!
Willie: Not yet!
Alf's surprise party misses out on a few seconds.
Katherine: Were you surprised?
Alf: Heck, no! I knew it all along!
Jake: I guess you're shaking because you're cold!
Alf: Hey, I just got out of the tub! How's it going, Jake-O-Lantern?
