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.
7 cuts = 2 minutes and 50 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.
The intro was shortened a bit. Alf's view of him opening a door and entering the room was removed.
Again a part of the intro is missing. Alf reaches into the fridge for the cake but Katherine smacks his hand away.
Lynn takes Brian's hand and leads him away. Then Willi and Katherine talk to Alf.
Katherine: Which means we trust you, Alf, to stay by yourself!
Alf: I don't wanna be trusted I wanna go! That letter was sent to me!
Katherine: Alf, I'm very sorry that we can't take you, but we can't! I promise, we'll bring back that talking blender!
Alf: Toaster! The thing you put bread into! A blender you put cats into! See, I need to go and teach you about small appliances!
Willie: No, it's settled, Alf! We're going and you're staying!
Alf: Oh, fine! I'll stay here and talk to our old toaster! Of course, it won't talk back! Yeah, it's gonna be a long, quiet weekend for the old Alfer! Don't feel guilty!
Willie: I don't feel guilty!
Alf: Then you haven't been paying attention!
After the exterior view of the airplane Trevor can be seen singing in the cockpit. The camera tracks to the back.
An additional shot of Willie and the others is missing as well a cut to Trevor singing.
Willie opens the door, Trevor is standing in front of it.
Trevor: Looks like we're neighbors again! You wanna go catch the floor show?
Willie: Actually, we were just thinking about going home! What do you think? Would that be out of the question?
Trevor looks to the others and says, He's joking, right?
Katherine: No! The plane ride was such fun, we can't wait to fly again!
Lynn: And I've got school tomorrow!
Trevor: On Saturday?
Lynn: Traffic school!
Trevor: Well, I'm sorry, that plane is on its way to Central-America! I can't tell you anything else!
Willie: Are you saying we're stuck here?
Trevor: Yeah, tough luck, huh? Stuck at a resort hotel! Come on, let's cut a rug trip the light fantastic do the hustle!
Katherine: Well, I'd love to, but I don't have anything to wear!
Trevor: Well, what was in that suitcase of yours? It weighed a ton!
Katherine: Suntan lotion!
Lynn: Mom tends to burn!
Trevor: Well, don't worry about it! Raquel will lend you one of her dresses!
Trevor walks out of the room.
Lynn: Now, don't spill anything on Raquel's dress! I might wanna wear it next!
Trevor: Listen, the buffet starts at 7:00. Raquel, will have your dress picked out by 6:30!
Trevor: Oh, by the way, she wanted to know, did you need a bra with that?
Katherine: Just the dress!
Alf can be seen in the cockpit longer. He starts singing, then Willie and Katherine appear behind the seat.
