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 entire phone conversation between Willie and the consumer advice center was cut out:

Alf: Have you busted that crook yet?
Willie: We don't know that he's a crook! It's possi... Yes, uh, my name is Willie Tanner! I... Yes, I'll hold!
Alf: On Melmac, we had an expression: "There's a sucker born every month, except February, which has 28!"
Willie: I suppose you'd hande this differently?
Alf: Indubitably, Willie-Nilly! I'd dial 1-800-Crime-88 let the Fox network blow this thug right out of the water!
Willie: Alf, why must you always... Yes! My name is... I'll hold!
Alf: You've got them running scared now!
Willie: As much as I appreciate your counsel... I'd prefer to handle this my own way, thank you very much! Don't you have something to do?
Alf: Yeah, but it can wait!
Willie: Hello? Hello? Now hear this! I'm a consumer! I have a complaint! I will not be put on hold! Yes! Thank you! Willie legt auf und sagt dann verärgert: I'm going to call back later!
