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.
4 cuts = 3 minutes and 26 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.
At this point, 2 and a half minutes were cut out. Lynn is standing in the kitchen. Willie and Katherine enter.
Lynn: Did they leave?
Katherine: Yeah! Where's Small Foot?
She opens the kitchen's shades and sees Alf standing behind them.
Alf: What is this sudden obsession with my feet?
Willie: Brian, I want you to go outside and see if Mrs. Ochmonek is alarming anyone!
Brian: You want me to spy on her?
Willie: No, no, no! I want you to go outside! I want you to look around and see if Mrs... Yeah! Go! Spy!
Katherine: You know, I don't think that Raquels is gonna rest until she gets her spaceman!
Lynn: What if we borrowed a hairy animal and let it loose in her yard?
Alf: Define hairy animal!
Katherine: A goat! An anteater!
Willie: A baboon! Yeah, no, an orangutan! That's orange!
Alf: Who are you calling orange? I'm burnt sienna!
Willie: I'm sorry, Alf! No offense!
Alf: Well, none taken! You hairless pink suburbanite!
Brian runs into the kitchen.
Brian: There's a crowd around Mrs. Ochmonek!
Katherine: Oh, no!
Willie: Don't worry, don't worry! We'll find a way out of this! In the meantime, Alf, you'll just have to stay inside!
Alf: Well, define meantime!
Willie: For as long as it takes!
Alf: Well, define as long as it takes!
Willie: Until Raquel forgets she saw a talking midget Big Foot with four teeth!
Alf: Well, we're talking well into next week!
Cut to the garage where Willie repairs something.
Alf: I notice you spend a lot of time fixing stuff, Willie!
Willie: That's because you spend a lot of time breaking stuff, Alf!
Alf: Well, it's nice that our hobbies are so compatible!
Lynn: How would you rate this guy in the sleazeball scale?
Oh, somewhere between Cheech and Chong!
The TV is shown longer. We see a talkshow and Raquel being the guest.
Raquel: Well, I don't know what planet it was from, but it spoke English! It said, "Oh, howdy, Raquel!"
Host: "Oh, howdy, Raquel"? Must be from the southern part of the universe! Well, it sounds like you've had a close encounter of the "yahoo" kind!
Cut to Alf and the others who watch the talkshow on TV.
Alf: Great show, huh?
Lynn: No! Alf, he's being mean!
Alf: Really? Well, I didn't get that at all! Did you, Brian?
Alf: I must have been thrown off by his subtlety!
Host: Tell me, Raquel... do you have any physical proof about what you saw? Pictures, footprints, an English-Martian dictionary!
Raquel: Just this!
Host: Is that one of its eggs?
Raquel: No! No!
