The best cartoon series since Rocky and Bullwinkle
It may sound like hyperbole, but the ALF cartoons rank with Rocky & Bullwinkle and other Jay Ward/Bill Scott creations - Fractured Fairy Tales, Mr. Peabody, Dudley Do-Right, George of the Jungle, et al - as some of the funniest cartoons ever created. Not in the same genre as cartoons from the golden age of the movie studios - MGM, Tex Avery, Warner Bros. etc. - but of the same limited animation as R&B where story and dialog count as the essential elements. These mini-masterpieces did more than achieve a high level of hilarious, dead-on satire, but also captured the spirit of the time in which they were created.
