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 perspective of him opening a door and entering a room is missing.
Another short part of the intro is missing. Alf wants to grab some cake from the fridge, but Katherine smacks his hand away.
Willie: (Alf, you go in the kitchen, the tow truck driver's coming in! He's helping us bring in the groceries!
Alf: (Then who's bringing in the toes?)
Willie: Just go! Alf walks towards the kitchen.
Lynn: Well, there go my concert plans!
Willie: I'm sorry, Lynn! We're as upset about this as you are!
Lynn: Seems like my friends are always driving me! When it's my turn to drive, something always happens!
Willie: I'd like to be more sympathetic but ice cream is melting on my shoe!
Lynn: Sorry! I'll call Kathy and cancel!
The man from the towing service (Bert) comes in, carrying shopping bags.
Bert: Sorry about my tow truck breaking down! What do you suppose the odds were on that one?
Katherine: Uh, just set those down anywhere!
Bert: That's okay! I'll carry them right into the kitchen!
Katherine: Uh, no! Uh.... We like to unload our own groceries! It's kind of a family thing!
Bert: I know what you mean! We're the same way!
Willie: Well, how much do I owe you then, Bert?
Bert: Well, the tow was 49! But then I owe you 63,50 for the new battery!
Bert: Of course, your wife sat on my glasses! So, uh, let's see, uh... Carry the four... Call it 50 bucks!
Willie: But who owes who?
Bert: That's a good one! Cash will be fine!
Willie: Here you go!
Bert: I hate taking this money from you! You're gonna have to shell out plenty to get that car fixed!
Willie: How much do you think it'll be?
Bert: Well, you're looking at a couple of grand to repair the engine and another deuce for the differential! Plus your tires are shot! That's gotta run you, uh... Carry the four...
Willie: I think we get the picture!
Bert: And also, you may want to consider a new set of brake pads! We should have never towed you with the emergency on! My mistake!
Willie: You're too kind!
Bert: I'm sorry, I got a grease spot on the carpet!
Willie: Oh, no, no! I'm sure that this will take care of it!
Bert: My fault! A little cleaning!
Willie: Don't worry! See you, Bert!
Bert goes outside and Willie closes the door.
Katherine: You can come out now, Alf!
The US version makes up for it with a longer shot of Alf.
US Version: 4 sec.
German Version: 124 sec.
Alf to Willie: You have ice cream on your shoes!
Alf is reading the question: While preparing the Cluck'n' Shuck Combo, the chicken should be... A, breaded... B, baked... C, washed!
Lynn: I'll go with C, washed!
Alf imitates a buzzer sound and says: Wrong! The answer is A, breaded!
Lynn: You're not supposed to wash them?
Alf: According to Mr. Jim chickens wash themselves!
Lynn: Don't wash chickens! Okay!
Alf: All right! Question 127!
There is a different exterior shot of the Tanners' house.
No difference in running time
Willie: You did everything right, Lynn! It looks fine! And you served it beautifully! I just don't think I'm really all that hungry right now!
Lynn: You don't have to be nice, Dad!
Willie: That was the worst thing I ever ate!
Lynn: I just serve it, buster!
Lynn: We're supposed to say that!
