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.
3 cuts = 2 minutes and 58 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.
The intro was shortened a bit. Alf's view of him opening a door and entering the room was removed.
Again a part of the intro is missing. Alf reaches into the fridge for the cake but Katherine smacks his hand away.
Katherine comforts Lynn because she is sad as her lover has danced with another girl.
A whole sequence of about three minutes in which there is some more chatting about the beatuy pageant was removed at this point.
Mrs. Bartley: And that's not all that beauty pageants have to offer! They also teach you about life help you develop poise and they lead to lots and lots of wonderful opportunities! In fact, many of our girls have gone on to become hostesses! Not waitresses mind you, but hostesses! Of course, I can't promise you'll become a hostess!
Lynn: I won't get my hopes up! Do you really think I have a chance of winning?
Mrs. Bartley: Well, of course you do! Oh, you're such a pretty girl and you have such a lovely smile! Although, it doesn't seem quite as bright as it does in your picture!
Willie: Oh, Lynn's built up a bit of plaque since then!
Mrs. Bartley: I see! Oh, before I forget, it says on your application that you're a clog dancer! Do you need any special equipment for that?
Lynn: No! You just clog up a sink and I'll dance around it!
Mrs. Bartley: What? The others start laughing and Mrs Bartley just then realizes that it was only a joke.
Willie: Yeah, there's never a dull moment with old Lynn around! Oh, no!
Mrs. Bartley: Well, I guess I have all the information I need! I'd better be going! I start my shift in half an hour! And customers won't know where to sit if I'm not there!
After the talk, Mrs. Bartley instantly gets up and walks towards the door.
Lynn calls out after her: Oh, Miss Bartley, before you go, can I ask you a question? If I don't win the car, is there some sort of a consolation prize?
Mrs. Bartley: Oh, yes! Each contestant wins a copy of the Miss Southland home game and a big pumice stone!
Lynn: Oh, then I guess I can't lose!
Mrs. Bartley: Right! Have a pretty day! Bye!
The otherīs say goodbye to Mrs. Bartley and she walks out of the door.
Lynn: Well, what do you think?
Well, now that we know her, she might give us a good table at the Pizza Barge!
Lynn: No! No, I mean, what do you think about me entering the pageant?
Willie: Well, Lynn, you're not really considering it, are you?
Lynn: Sure! Why not?
Willie: Well, I don't know! I guess I always thought that beauty pageants were demeaning to women!
Katherine: Well, maybe you're right, Willie, but one contest isn't gonna hurt her! As long as she doesn't take it seriously! You're not gonna take this seriously, are you?
Lynn: Mom, I'm clog dancing for a pumice stone! How serious can I be?
Willie: I guess it could be fun, maybe even a learning experience! There's nothing to lose
Alf: Just the registration free!
Willie: How much?
Alf: 200 Dollar!
Willie: I guess you know what my reaction's going to be!
Alf: Yeah, but I don't think I care to hear it!
Katherine: Now, is this the same Willie who said beauty pageants were demeaning?
Willie: Yeah, but that Willie didn't have a daughter who's going to win!
Katherine: Alf, you haven't said anything!
Willie: Please, Kate, don't spoil the moment!
