I normally would not even bring this news up, but I felt I should because something new is going to be included on this disc. Taken from tvshowsondvd.com:

Disc includes 5 of MacFarlane's favorite episodes from the second and third seasons of Family Guy, including the original, uncensored "Road to Rhode Island" and optional commentary by MacFarlane, diabolical baby Stewie, family dog Brian and other cast and crew members.

So the uncut episode will be included on this disc. This is important because an Osama Bin Laden joke was removed from this episode for its dvd premiere on Family Guy Volume 1. I just thought I'd pass this on for those Family Guy nuts. Too bad they couldn't just have left it uncut for the original dvd.

The disc will be available on December 14th.

There were other minor things cut from other episodes too. No big deal. Minor jokes at best. For example, there was some Hitler-esque audio cut from the episode with Steiw's birthday (when he's imagining what to wish for) and a JFK Pez dispenser joke in another episode.
Family Guy Reference Archive (http://www.familyguyfiles.com/episodes/forbidden.php) had the clips of the cut stuff, but the main page says they had to be removed, due to bandwidth problems.

But this did surprise me.

Considering that MacFarlane was scheduled to be ON one of the hijacked flights from that day, it's quite understandable that he has been very torn over the issue of the cuts Fox made.I've never heard about that before.
