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......
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 Jonathon 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

The show was an instant hit in Germany, which was unfortunate for the German city of Alf, located on the Moselle river. The "city limits" signs, featuring the city's name, were stolen so many times that the city council decided to produce a huge number of signs for sale. See more »

One more word out of you, and you're not eating with us.
Right. Let the alien starve.
I think the alien could skip a meal. It might be a new experience for you!
How would you like your hamburger?
Medium rare. Hold the lightning.
How would you like to be 50% hair?
You know, you're a different person when you're on vacation.
I'm just trying to make this vacation fun.

After the closing credits in the original unaired pilot, ALF appears and says to the audience "Be there!". See more »
Many of the syndicated episodes from the American DVD sets are further edited to remove music and songs which were claimed too expensive to license for home video. In a few cases, this results in episodes which run for less than 20 minutes! The European sets released by Warner does not suffer from these problems. See more »
If any of you were little kids in the mid-80's (like I was) you enjoyed shows like the Smurfs, Thundercats, He-Man, Alvin & the Chipmunks, and even those old Marvel super hero shows. But that was all on Saturday morning. Where does the 6-year-old spend his TV time during the week? Watching ALF, of course! This show was a Monday night staple at 7 pm (cst). It's about an alien being who crash landed on Earth and spends his time wisecracking on the family that found him. He's got 8 stomachs, and he's not afraid to use them! This show spawned a cartoon series (which I also enjoyed watching). ALF goes right up there with Small Wonder and Charles In Charge as my favorite 80's sitcoms.
