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.
Mr. Foley, dressed up as Santa, is pushing a cart across the hallway of the pediatric ward for cancer patients and singing a Christmas song. The kids walk and sing with him.
ALF's conversation with terminally ill Tiffany is longer.
Tiffany: I'm so afraid I can't go to sleep at night, because I'm afraid I'm not gonna wake up!
Alf: Well, then, do what I do! When you can't go to sleep, think about some of your favorite things!
Tiffany: You mean, like raindrops on roses?
Alf: Yeah, that's a good one!
Tiffany: Or whiskers on kittens?
Alf: Now you're talking!
