Halloween is approaching and ALF wants to go trick-or-treating. Kate, of course, objects, but ALF persists. He argues that he has a natural costume and tries offering Willie a deal he can't refuse......
The Tanner family is an average American family. One day, they discover that they have a visitor. He's small, he's furry, he's arrogant, and he's an alien from the planet Melmac. Unsure what to do, they name him ALF: Alien Life Form. Alf soon decides that as much as he misses his home planet, there's a lot to be said for Earth: the Tanners are willing to concede anything as long as he doesn't announce his presence. Oh yeah, the Tanners also have a cat, which looks rather tasty...Written by

John LaMotta said in an interview that he thought Alf was "a piece of shit" and "the worst work I ever did." See more »

What are you, anyway?
I'm an alien, from the planet Melmac. I have powers you can only dream of.
Uhhhm... I can watch 10 hours of TV, without ever getting up to go to the bathroom.

For syndication the episodes were cut down to 21 minutes. These edited versions were used for the US DVD release, while the European sets featured the 24 minute full length episodes. See more »
This show was cool! Alf was an alien that crashed in the Tanner's family living room. Then he ended up staying there to live. He had to hide from other humans the first couple of seasons. Then the Ochmonics and the Tanner's mother in law discovered him. One serious episode was the Christmas episode. Alf stopped an old man from jumping off a bridge, helped deliver a baby, and became friends with a girl with leukemia. A silly episode was the Gilligan's Island episode. I can still hear Alf singing the Gilligan's Island theme song in my head today! The Alf cartoon was stupid. And when they added Alf Tales the second season, it made the cartoon more stupid! It was cool to see a movie called Project Alf years later. But why did Alf appear in stupid 1800COLLECT commercials?
