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 perspective of him opening a door and going into the room is missing.
Another short part of the intro is missing. Alf grabs for the cake in the fridge, Catherine smacks his hand away.
There is alternative footage when they talk about Alf's food addiction.
US Version: 7 sec.
Uncut: 12 sec.
Lynn carries a parcel to Alf.
Lynn: Alf, this package is for you!
Alf: Oh, it's here! Yeah!
Lynn: What's here? What is it?
Brian: Can I open it?
Alf: Hey, hey, he! Come on! Let's not get impatient, shall we?
Lynn and Brian open the parcel and Alf gets a bottle of perfume out of it.
Alf: Tastefully packaged! Well, I guess so!
Lynn: Alf, these are cosmetics!
Alf: That's right, cosmetics! This must be the earlobe freshener!
Lynn: Alf, what are you doing with cosmetics?
Alf: Huh? Oh, didn't I tell you?
The US Version contain the last two lines as well, but the shot in which it can be seen is different.
US Version: 3,5 sec.
Uncut: 30 sec.
Alf can be seen putting make-up on Lynn longer. Afterwards, Lynn asks Okay! Now, can I see a mirror?
Brian: I don't think you want to!
Alf: My work speaks for itself!
Lynn: Come one, let me have it!
Brian gives her the mirror, Lynn is not very pleased with the result.
Lynn: I'm going to go wash my face!
Alf: You didn't let it harden!
Lynn: Before it hardens! Lynn läuft ins Badezimmer.
Alf: Brian, I'm in business! My freeloader days are numbered!
Brian: What about your parasite days?
Alf: Hey, come on now! Just help me pack this stuff up and carry it to my room!
The phone rings and Brian answers.
Brian: Hell? Just a minute! Alf, it's for you! Someone named Ginger!
Alf: Oh, great, great! Brian hands him the earpiece. Alf: Thanks! Hello! Ging, darling! I just got the package! It's divine! Yeah, the lipsticks? I didn't know there were so many luscious colors! Yeah! Oh, that Tangerine Tango is exquisite! What? Couple of extra cases? Oh, yeah! No problem! Yeah, yeah! Send them over! I'll move them! Yeah, just put it on my account! Yeah, okay, thank you! Ciao! Alf puts the phone down, then he starts singing: All right, Brian! I'm checking out of the Parasite Hotel! Gonna move that mousse and styling gel!
Willie: Why are you even listening to him?
Katherine: He is a beauty consultant!
Alf: Hey, what choice did I have? Banks don't give a line of credit to people with one name!
