Release: Jun 18, 2015 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB - more from this series
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.

The differences:

5 cuts = 2 minute and 54 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.

During the religious ceremony at the table, ALF suddenly starts singing: Oh, Barry, Barry, bo-Barry, Banana-fana-fo-farry, Fee-fi-mo-marry... Barry...
Katherine: Alf!
Alf: Okay, let's do "Alf!" Then he sings: Alf, Alf, bo-balf Banana...
Lynn: This is really silly! What kind of religion is this, anyway?
Alf: It's Reformed! What does it look like?

Alf: (Oh! Let's see! When you stick with stripes and solids and stay away from patterns! We worried about Barry, but as long as he was happy!)
Willie: That's wrong, Alf! It says, "Stick with patterns! Stay away from solids! They're cold, and they don't create a welcome environment!"
Alf: Ugh! Religion is so subjective!
Lynn: This is your last chance, so take advantage of the full 20 seconds! Lynn grabs the scroll and reads out loud: "You've been dancing all night, and you've noticed your partner's dress shields have given out! You like her, but others are starting to point! Do you tell her?"
Alf: I remember this one! The answer is no! Instead you dance the first slow dance then reach in and change them without her knowing!

Willie: (I know, Bri! Your mother and I have had plenty of time to discuss this matter! We just seem to be of somewhat different opinions!)
Katherine: I think this may be another trick of Alf's to get us to do what he wants us to do!
Willie: Well, I say who cares? Let's just do it!

Brian: Do you think if I tried yodeling I could get a new Nintendo game?
Lynn: No, but it might get you a new set of teeth!
Brian: Come on! The first one's free!
Lynn: I'm sorry! I guess I'm just overly anxious that everything goes smoothly! Do you have the ring?
Brian: No, I sold it for three magic beans!
Alf: Brian, go get your father!
Brian: Why? What's wrong?
Alf: Nothing! And whatever you do, tell him not to panic!
Willie: Oh, my God! What's happened?
Alf: Not to worry! But I was just using my Barry decorder ring to figure out this last puzzle and I thought I should alert you to a potential problem! You look really sharp, by the way!
Willie: Alf, what's the problem?
Alf: Well, it's just that if you and Kate aren't truly moved by my ceremony, just call me Heidi, the lonely goatherd!
Willie: What a wondrous religion!
Alf: Isn't it? It's for ages 3 and up!

Katherine: (Alf, please, let's just get this over with!)
Alf: Uh-oh! It's Heidi time!
Katherine: Uh, what does he mean by that?
Willie: Oh, uh, I think what Alf is trying to say is that this is an expression of our love! Uh, I can't think of any better way to spend our anniversary than to confirm our vows all over again!
Katherine: Oh!
Alf: Willie, honey, say that with a straight face!
