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.
6 cuts = 3 minutes and 8.5 seconds.
One certainly needs to make no words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". Even those who have not seen it have 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 was 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 for 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. We do not see Alf's point of view when opening a door and walking to into the room.
Another minor part from the intro was cut out when Alf wants to get his hands on the cake in the fridge, but Katherine hinders him.
Alf listens to a pop song on the radio and sings along.
Alf: I do hope you folks will have a chance to check under the tables! I've scraped off all the gum!
Willie: There was gum under the tables?
Alf: Well, gum and other crusty substances deposited there by someone who will henceforth be known as the old Alf!
Katherine: May he rest in peace!
Willie: Did you see what Alf did in there? He embroidered "milord" and "milady" on the towels!
Katherine: Yeah! He's amazing!
Willie: You're telling me! He got that stubborn cranberry stain off of my pajama tops!
Katherine: Yeah! He can do anything!
Willie: Oh, yeah! I'll say!
Katherine: I can't believe I'm saying this, but he's actually making me feel...
Katherine: I wasn't gonna say that!
Willie: Oh, I didn't mean!
Katherine: You're the one who's making me feel inadequate, and the kids too! I mean, everybody is so carried away with the new Alf's old-world charm! Hope you're not expecting that of me when things get back to normal!
Willie: Absolutely not, milady!
Katherine: Good night, milord!
The two of them start kissing on the bed. Suddenly, they hear a noise coming from the window. They look up and and see Alf cleaning the window while staring in.
Katherine: Maybe you'd better pull that shade!
Willie gets up from the bed, walks to the window and pulls the shades down. Then he goes back to bed and they continue where they left off. However, Alf interrupts them again by making the same noise again. Willie and Katherine look at the window with an annoyed expression.
Alf: And I didn't think milady wanted to continue with the Nancy Reagan look!
Katherine: Well, thank you, Alf Lauren!
Alf: "Alf Lauren"? Oh, good one, ma'am! I'll have to phone the other manservants I've befriended and tell them that you've unleashed yet another corker!22 sec
Katherine: (Alf, how did the kitchen blow up?)
Alf: Beg your pardon, ma'am?
Katherine: How did the kitchen blow up?
Katherine (angrily): Just tell me how the kitchen blew up!
Alf: Care for a little mood music?
Willie: I think we must have it!
Alf switches the radio on and a pop song starts. Willie nods his head to the beat of the music.
