Ever since the US version of Alf came on DVD, I was waiting for a better one. The US DVD's present syndicated versions of Alf and are in NTSC format (not a problem for most of the DVD-players, but still a bit shaky when showing fast motion scenes).

Now there's a new Warner-DVD Version in Germany. It's the european TV-standard PAL and offers various languages. The DVD's contain the following languages: German, English, French, Spanish (Same for the subtitles + dutch). So far you can only get the first season, but the second is supposed to be on the market in november 2009. I'm not really sure if the Alf episodes in the UK had the same lengths as in Germany, but from what I read on the internet I guess they did. Here are the running times of the first 5 episodes:

1. 24:14
2. 24:45
3. 23:45
4. 24:43
5: 24:44
...

For everyone waiting for an "uncut" version of Alf who don't mind to have a german DVD-Cover, go to "amazon.de" and search for "Alf Staffel 1" (which means Season 1) otherwise you might find the US-versions. Don't mind the few people who rated the german version "1 star" these guys were calculating the running times before the DVD's were out and thought it would be syndicated versions. Now that the DVD is out they realized that they misclaculated the running times :-)

Hope the UK ALF-fans will enjoy the DVD's as much as I do.

I thought I'd never see this series un-edited again. Alf was my favourite series / sitcom as a child and back in 2006 I was really excited that it was coming to DVD. Unfortunately the episodes (US releases) were butchered losing between 2 and 6 mins per episode. The episode entitled wild thing no longer made sense it was edited that much. They also cut most of the music as they didn't want to pay for the rights. Lionsgate said they couldn't clean up the original episodes as it would cost too much, so they released the US syndicated prints. Warner (as a bigger company?) have released this almost uncut, there's a Dutch release, a French and a German release (you can buy it from Amazon.de) They couldn't get the rights to a 40sec chipmunk song, they cut five seconds from the pilot with Alf and Willie in the bathroom, Alf's belch is removed when he slides the can across the TV (pilot) and the episode try to remember is the changed version. It's only a few seconds, in the rare version Alf is electrocuted in the bathtub and he walks out with his fur smoking. In the changed version he falls and bangs his head. This amounts to about 50 seconds of cut material. Because they edit for syndication US Networks take out most of the standalone scenes / funny bits so that they can keep the storyline intact. As a big fan I bought the region 1 DVD's, they have interactive menus and extras (unaired pilot, outtakes reel, trivia facts) these are missing from this DVD release which only has standard menus. The menus are in English and there's an English soundtrack too. This show hasn't dated, it's just as good now as it was in 1986. Only the clothes and sets are dated, but it doesn't spoil the fun. I hope we get a UK release in the future.

I am glad for Amazon's customer review facility! Thank you!
And thanks to those who have let everybody else know that the episodes are actually cut and not the full length versions. I don't want to pay £20 not even £10 and not even £5 for something that I won't enjoy as much because I know that there are some bits missing. I really don't understand what the point of this is but this message is mainly to those responsible for this release - give us the full version and we'd be happy to pay for it, but I won't spend my hard-earned credit crunched cash on second rate.

Alf is finally released on dvd. This was my favourite show as a child and i still love this television show today. I think ALF appeals to anyone with a great sense of humour, Adults, teenagers or children will all adore this dvd. They're many good and many points about this DVD release. First the good. Included is the unaired pilot (this is a superb extra because untill a couple of years ago i had no idea it existed) and interactive menus. These are superb and although i don't normally count menus as extras these really are. All new Alf footage is contained in these menus and Alf will even tell you abit about each episode. The episodes; they're are 26 episodes in this season one collection (all still great; all still funny)and they've been remastered with dolby sorround sound. Superb. Now the bad points. As i'm sure you're aware these episodes are not the original uncut versions they're the syndicated versions. IE: Each episode has a few minutes cut out of them. I'm not sure how much footage is missing. Lions Gate released this dvd set (and season 2 and 3)and they have issued a reason for this. The syndicated episodes where in better condition to tranfer to DVD. As a long time ALF fan i'm disapointed that these episodes are cut. We don't have sydication in the UK; when are favourite tv shows are repeated they're shown uncut everytime. I doubt the original episodes were that bad that they couldn't be remastered. And where's the UK release? Alf was hugely popular over here! I wish they'd release this set in the UK (uncut) and Alf's hit talk show because it's only been shown in America and i really want to watch it. Another bad thing is the packaging (when mine came from America two of the discs were lose) Luckly they weren't scratched.Read more ›
