Television Monsters: ALF!


Also known as Gordon Shumway, ALF(Alien Life Form) crash-landed his ship in the garage of the Tanner family. He is a native of the planet Melmac. The Tanners hide him from the Alien Task Force, and he becomes a member of the family, although his presence causes them many inconveniences.

Despite the cat-eating tendencies of ALF and his kind, I absolutely LOVED this show. I thought the puppetry and puppet design was stellar and the performances by puppeteer Paul Fusco hilarious. I miss him!
