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 = 3 minutes and 7 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.
At the very beginning, Willie and the others are sitting at the table when the lights are switched off. Then everybody starts singing "Happy Birthday" for Willie. Lynn gets handed the birthday cake from Katherine, which she puts on the table in front of Willie.
The intro was shortened a bit. Alf's perspective of him opening a door and entering the room is missing.
Another small part of the intro is missing. Alf wants to get something out of the fridge and Katherine smacks his hand away.
The family is looking at old pictures of Willie and Katherine.
Lynn: (Mom, who is this gorgeous guy with his arm around you?)
Katherine: Oh, that's Animal Hohnerheim!
Willie: Your mother dated a lot of gorgeous guys before she met me! Not that I wasn't gorgeous myself!
Lynn: Who is this guy that looks like Harrison Ford? She shows the picture to Katherine.
A sequence was removed from Willie's dream. After Nolan has accepted his Bei Willies Traum wurde noch ein längerer Szenenblock heraus gekürzt. Nachdem Nolan seine Urkunde überreicht bekommen hat, gratuliert Willie ihm noch:
Willie: Congratulation, Nolan!
Nolan: Thanks, bub!
Willie: You've really... You've really done quite well!
Nolan: You're telling me! I've led a life of travel and adventure! I'm rich, I'm famous! I have a species of bird named after me!
Willie: I'll have my mortgage paid off in eight years! Unless we refinance, of course! Kate and I are still kicking that around!
Nolan: Yeah, say ho to her for me, will you? What a cutie!
Nolan wendet sich von Willie ab und springt nach unten in die Tiefe.
Houseman: Your mortgage will be paid off!
Houseman: Next up, Lyle "Animal" Hohnerheim, jetsetter, yachtsman, international financier! Come on out here, Animal, and get your diploma, you rich guy, you!
Lyle rounds the corner and thanks Houseman. He then takes his certificate.
Houseman: Wow, have you done well!
Lyle: Yeah, I'm quite a guy!
Houseman: You've won the Indianapolis 500, you're listed in the Fortune 500, and in the National League, you've batted 500!
Lyle: Listen, I gotta run! We're having 500 people over for dinner tonight!
Lyle walks past Willie and is greeted by him. He asnswers: No, we've already got somebody to park the cars!
Willie: No, no, no! I just wanted to say hello! I'm Willie Tanner!
Willie: I married Kate Halligan!
Lyle: Kate Halligan... Say hello to her for me, will you? You know, she is one in 500!
Lyle continues to walk and jumps down.
Brian: I thought the roll was supposed to come right the hit!
Willie: You mean there was a pause between the two?
Alf: There was enough time to send out for pizza! Now, that's a thought!
Briefly before the jump, Willie asks his neighbour in the plane: Are you doing this for fun, or do you have a lost too?
Mann: Excuse me?
Willie: Oh, never mind!

The other appluad Willie's jump. Willie says thanks again and adds: It was nothing! It was like jumping off a cliff!
Brian: Are you gonna do it again?
Willie: Not in your lifetime!
Lynn: Well' I'm gonna jump as soon as Lash gets his pilot's license!
Willie: I think we'll all jump when gets his pilot's license!
Katherine: Alf, you would've been really, really, proud of him!
Alf: I was proud of him before he jumped!
