2 alternative scenes = 39 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.
The talk in the bedroom is longer.
Alf: Come on Will-height, this body's the perfect Halloween costume! Besides, I have to get out and see new faces! Why, you ask?
Willie: I didn't ask why!
Alf: Well, would you?
Alf: Why, what?
Willie: Why do you have to get out and see new faces?
Alf: Why the third degree? I just wanna go trick-or-treating!
Willie: You can't Alf, it's too dangerous!
Alf: Anyway, what we have to do here is dig up some dirt on your boss! Does he steal from the company? Go to the salad bar illegally? Chew with his mouth open?
Willie: You chew with your mouth open!
Alf: Oh, smart Willie, dig up dirt on me! I can't give you that promotion!
Katherine: Good night, Alf!
Alf: All right, all right, wait! Forget the dirt!

Katherine and Willie are standing in front of three bowls filled with punch.
Katherine says: Honey, do you think that I made enough punch for 12!
Willie: To drink or to bathe in?
Katherine: We have a daughter dating a Lizard and an alien shaking down our son for candy!
Alf: Let's Party!
Willie and Katherine are meeting Lynn's new friend Lizard for the first time
Lizard: (You know, it's just a simple bypass surgery!)
Willie: Well, you must be very good at biology! Were you thinking of becoming a surgeon?
Lizard: I've thought about it, but quantum physics is my first love!
Willie: Young man, you may not only date my daughter, you may have her hand in marriage!
The US Version shows an alternative shot of Willie and Katherine.
US Version: 2 sec
German Version: 18 sec
Lynn opens the door and welcomes a few more guests. Then there is a cut to Alf talking to Ed and Bernice.
Ed: Well, that's a pretty funny costume you got yourself, Gordo! What are those, warts?
Alf: Hey, time for that eye exam there, Edsel! Those are beauty marks!
Bernice: What are you supposed to be, exactly?
Alf: An alien, from the planet Melmac!
Willie drops the platter. Bernice and Ed are looking at him, then Willie says, He's just kidding!
Alf: Yeah! Everyone knows that Melmacians don't have zippers! Everybody starts laughing. Then the picture fades over to Willie sitting at the table in the kitchen.
Lizard opens the kitchen door and looks back at Alf, who is just singing something for the guests. The Lizard talks to Lynn: Lynn, you are missing "In the Ghetto"!
Lynn: Oh, my favorite!
She walks to Lizard and they go back into the living room.
Willie: We don't lead a normal life!
When Mr. Burke ask Willie for some ice, he adds that he wants some Scotch as well this time. Willie then walks towards the kitchen.
