1 alternative scene = 6 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.
Trevor: Is everyone decent? If not, I won't stay too long! Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't know you were saying grace!
Lynn: We're finished! Lynn is pulling back the sleeping Brian's head on the kitchen table: "Amen"!
Willie: What's up, Trevor?
Trevor: It's Raquel! She said a weird noise kept her up all night! I couldn't hear anything from my bedroom!
Lynn: Weird noise?
Trevor: Yeah, kind of a metallic...sound! At first, I thought it was my pet boa constrictor choking on a rat!
Alf can be heard hiccuping again, the noise echoes from the garage into the kitchen. Trvor looks surprised and says, It's coming from here!
Willie: Oh, that noise! That's our garbage disposal! It's been on the fritz!
Trevor: Oh, that's why you've been throwing turkey bones on my lawn!
Willie: I'm sorry, Trevor! Someone... I'll clean that up right away!
Trevor: That's okay! It's good fertilizer! Well, hate to eat and run, but Raquel has breakfast ready! Trevor looks at Brian sleeping on the kitchen table, adds, Religious kid you got there, and goes away.
The n Lynn wakes up Brian, who raises his head and sleepily says, "Amen!" He then lies down again.
Willie: I'd better go check on Alf!
Alf's hiccup can be heard again, something breaks in the kitchen.
Katherine: What was that?
Willie opens the shutters, Alf is standing behind them.
Alf: Hey, Willie, I discovered something!
Alf: I'm Ella Fitzgerald!
Alf hiccups again. The glass in front of him breaks apart.
Alf: (Well, I don't remember! I only used it once!) When I was mauled by a gnarf!
Katherine: A gnarf?
Alf: Don't laugh! It was a pit gnarf!
Katherine picks up the cat from the couch.
Katherine: Well... Mom, that was a little rough! I mean, it's not Alf's fault that he has the hiccups!
Alf: Yeah, don't forget who brought you and Whizzer together in the first place!
Dorothy: You did! You did, Alf! And I'm sorry!
Alf: If it weren't for me you'd be spending tomorrow alone watching reruns of "Bonanza"!
Dorothy: You're probably right! Again, I apologize!
Alf: The high point of your entire evening would be catching a glimpse of Michael Landon's chest hair!
Dorothy (angrily): I said I was sorry!
Alf: There's no talking to her!
During the wedding, Lynn films Brian and says, Say something, Brian!
Brian: Like what?
Lynn: I don't know! Anything!
Brian: Hi! I'm Ted Koppel and this is "Nightline"!
Whizzer: (Hi, gorgeous!)
Dorothy: I thought Garland was gonna be your best man!
Whizzer: Oh, he's in a better place now!
Dorothy: Another stripper, huh?
The following sentence of the priest, "Dearly beloved we are gathered here today in the presence of God," can be seen in two different shots.
US Version: 4 sec
German Version: 10 sec
After Willie and the others have run to Alf in the garage with Dorothy following them, Whizzer can be seen standing alone in front of the guests. He motions them to start playing, he then sings along to the music. There is also a cut to Brian's friend, who is not looking very enthusiastic.
