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......
This show follows the life of a family of dinosaurs, living in a modern world. They have televisions, refrigerators, et cetera. The only humans around are cavemen, who are viewed as pets and wild animals.
Tony Micelli, a retired baseball player, becomes the housekeeper of Angela Bower, an advertising executive in New York. Together they raise their kids, Samantha Micelli and Jonathan Bower, with help from Mona Robinson, Angela's man-crazy mother.
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

At the time, this was one of the most expensive 30-minute sitcoms to produce, due to all the technical elements required and long taping schedules. To help recoup costs, NBC licensed the character to toys, breakfast cereal, and an animated TV series. See more »

All right. Let me see if I've got this reindeer thing straight. There's... uh... there's Dasher, Dancer, Comet, Cupid... Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
No, it's Prancer, Dancer, Vixen, Blitzen...
Huey, Duey and Luey.
No, those are ducks.
Then how do they pull the sleigh?

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 »
Alf, the lovely Melmacian. I enjoyed watching every single episode. Unfortunately two were not aired, so the Germans missed watching Alf hosting the Tonight Show. But nevertheless, I grew up with this and I loved Alf and still love him. It´s so bad to see that there might be no continuation in the near future. Alf - 10 out of 10
