Compared are the TV Version and the uncensored DVD Version (DVD Version represented by the UK release "Season 10").

- 6 differences, among them two instances of audio censoring
- Difference: 136.1 sec

As usual, almost any newer episode of Family Guy has been released as uncensored and extended version on DVD. The latest season 10 has just started to air in the US (September 2011) but the last episode released on DVD is episode "8.08". It's available on "Volume 8" and was released in June 2010. Since then, no further box has been released or even announced so far for some reason. But the English people know what they're doing. While the UK counterpart was always released a couple of months after the box set in the US (the UK Season 9 equal to the US Vol. 8 was released 5 months later), the next UK box is already available. "Season 10" contains the episodes "8.09" until "8.19", the episode Partial Terms of Endearment, which got banned from TV in the US, plus the first 3 episodes of season 9 and it was released in May 2011.

The twelth episode on the box, 8x19 ("The Splendid Source"), features several new plot scenes, which probably had to left out at least in part due to censoring. In this episode, the boys are looking for the souce of dirty jokes after Peter has soiled himself repeatedly because of a certain gag. In the DVD version, the whole joke can actually be heard. The a bit more offensive "crapped" was then also replaced by the softer "pooped".

The headmaster says a bit more, then there is more of Peter's classic shenannigans.

Headmaster: "Well, I suppose if I have your word that this won't happen again we can allow Chris to return to school."
Lois: "I promise, my husband will have a talk with Quagmire. Won't you, Peter? Peter?"
Peter has already left his seat and is at the microphone.
Headmaser: "Mr. Griffin, don't touch that. That's the school PA system."
Peter laughs and takes it: "Attention, student body. You will now listen as I attempt to swallow this microphone."
Now, students can be seen to the sounds of Peter swallowing the microphone.
Lois: "Peter, what are you doing?"
Several of Peter's body sounds (e.g. his heartbeat) can be heard.
Lois: "Pull! Pull!"
Peter: "Ung, ugh."
After coughing and breathing heavily, he says: "I did it. I did it. That was all that noise. I did it."

The TV version shows them 0.3 secs longer at the beginning.

DVD version 40,1 sec longer

Audio Censoring

Only on DVD Peter says "I crapped my pants" as the bad word was replaced with "pooped" on TV. The mouth animations are therefore a bit different.

There is an additional scene in which Peter is being told the joke.

Peter is in the car, a policeman stops him.
Policeman: "Can I see your driver's license and registration?"
Peter: "Is there a problem, officer?"
Quadmire and Joe can be seen hidden in the police car.
Quagmire: "Is he telling it?"
Joe: "Yeah."
Peter can be seen from afar, he starts laughing: "Ha-ha-ha... Damn it!"
He runs to a shrubbery and says: "Fuck you, guys!"

22,6 sec

Audio Censoring

The same as earlier, this time Lois says "You just crapped all over the bed" on DVD and uses "pooped" on TV. The animations are again a bit different.

Cleveland spots another celebrity after Bill Gates.

Cleveland: "And there's Warren Buffett."
Buffett, to another man: "So the gym teacher says, 'How'd you get the two black eyes?' She says, 'I don't know.' Oh, I forgot to say she's got two big jugs."
He laughs, the other man does not.

11 sec


Another interesting and additional scene immediately before the ending credits. The family talks a bit at home and then Peter tells the joke.

Lois: "Well, Peter, I'm glad you and the guys finally found what you were looking for."
Peter: "We did. It's just sad that 230 people had to die in the most gruesome way imaginable. But our idle curiosity was satisfied, so everything worked out."
Brian: "Peter, you went halfway around the world for this joke, I never even got to hear it."
Meg: "Yeah, me neither."
Chris: "Yeah, come on, Dad. Tell the joke."
Peter: "You wanna hear it? This chick goes on a date with this guy she wants to fuck. But she's worried because she's got a huge vagina from fucking so many other guys. So she gets a piece of liverwurst and shoves it in her vagina so when he fucks her, it'll feel tighter..."
Lois wendet ein: "Maybe this isn't family conversation."
Peter: "No, wait, Lois, shut the fuck up. So she puts the liverwurst in her vagina, goes home with the guy, fucks him, everything seems fine. She wakes up the next morning and he's gone. And he's left her a note that says. 'Thank you for a lovely evening. However, I don't think this is going to work out. P.S. Your vagina is in the sink.'"
Of course, the usual effect takes place again, causing Peter to say "Now, I'm gonna leave the room now as I have just shit myself again."
