Do you remember Alf?

Do you remember Alf? I used to love this show ... and still do. The only way I could describe it is that the show was like "close encounters of the furred kind." It gave us some of the best toys and products of the 80's. Maybe the show's sole existence was to to give fuel for the space program. Giving hope to kids everywhere that aliens do exist.

The story was pretty typical, Alien crash lands into human's garage. Human, named Gordon, falls in love with the lovable ALF (Short for Alien Life Form) that takes him in to protect him from the Alien Task Force (AKA Bad Guys). Shortly after, all the antics start with a middle class family trying to keep him secret from friends, family and nosey neighbors.

Even though, for the most part, the stories were so-so, America once again fell in love with its furry alien friend. How could we pass up ALF? Who wouldn't love the 3 foot tall alien with an elongated snout and moles that could make Aaron Neville jealous?

All hail ALF!!
