Background


From the series Family Guy, fans are already used to extensions and uncensored sequences on the DVD box sets since the release of the 4th season. With Seht MacFarlane's other baby - American Dad - they do a similar thing. However, not too many episodes per DVD box are different in comparison to their TV version; probably also because the series isn't as rude as the one starring the Griffins. As a result, there's not too much that needs to be censored.

Similar to Family Guy, the release policy for American Dad is equally confusing. Instead of an entire box set for one season, the releases are divided in volumes (unlike Family Guy the volumes are identical in each country). The first season for example consists of 23 episodes, while the "volume 1" set only includes the first 13 episodes; thus, the following volumes often include episodes of 2 different seasons.


Vol. 1 and 2 didn't include episodes that were different to TV versions except for one: the episode Tears of a Clooney (1x23) on Vol. 2 has a censored and an uncensored soundtrack. Since this censorship only involves beeping out curse words, we decided not to release a report for this episode.

Additionally, we took a closer look at Vol. 2's episode Finances with Wolves, since the official rating entry listed that the episode was about 2 minutes longer than an average episode. However, it is highly possible, that the entry is simply faulty, since the episode actually has an average runtime and does not at all differ from the TV version - neither on the German, nor on the US DVD.



Volume 4


"Volume 4" includes the episodes 8 + 10-16 of the third season (episode 8 is a christmas special and was included as the last episode of the last disc) as well as the episodes 1-6 of the fourth season. In this box set there are 8 episodes with differing versions. However, three of them only include an uncensored soundtrack while nothing of the imagery was altered. As for Volume 1, 2, and 3 we only created reports for those episodes that offer more than just deleted beeps.

Episodes with extended material/uncensored footage
- 3x15: Stanny Slickers II: The Legend of Ollie's Gold
- 3x16: Spring Breakup
- 4x01: 1600 Candles
- 4x06: Pulling Double Booty
- 3x08: The Most Adequate Christmas Ever

Episodes with an additional uncensored soundtrack (no beeps)
- 3x10: Tearjerker=> 10th minute: "Vagina"
- 3x11: Oedipal Panties=> 18th minute: 2x "Fuck"
- 4x04: Choosy Wives Choose Smith=> 17th minute: "shit"

For these episodes you can choose to watch the "Original Televised Episode" by selecting it in the bonus menu. If you don't do that you will always see the uncensored DVD version; the UK box set only includes the DVD versions, the TV versions can't be chosen.



About this Episode


Pulling Double Booty (4x06) only offers 2 sequences which include auditory censorship - they used alternative sentences for the TV version. It's not too bad, still you should probably stick to the uncensored DVD version.
Alternative Scene / Auditory Censorship
10:54-10:56

Stan's suggestion to his bodydouble Bill is a little more explicit. As a result, the animation is slightly different. The images below originate from the DVD version.

TV: "Bill, you ever pull it in the great big blue?"
DVD: "Bill, you ever jerk it in the great big blue?"




Alternative Scene / Auditory Censorship
11:31-11:33

Francine talks a little dirtier, too. The lip movement is slightly different. The images below originate from the DVD version.

TV: "You go upstairs and sink-wash your boys."
DVD: "You go upstairs and sink-wash your junk."
