Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Before becoming a spokes-puppet for a long-distance company in a recent series of commercials, ALF starred in his own 1986-90 hit sitcom on NBC. Paul Fusco -- the show's creator and executive producer -- voiced the brown, furry, long-nosed space traveler from Melmac known as Gordon Shumway. When Gordon crash-lands on a suburban rooftop, Willie Tanner (Max Wright) welcomes him into the family, hides him from the military, and renames him ALF, for "Alien Life Form." (This is TV.) Other than his penchant for eating cats and annoying Willie, ALF makes himself at home among the Tanners, who include wife Kate (Anna Schedeen), daughter Lynn (Andrea Elson), and son Brian (Benji Gregory). Since harboring an alien can sometimes be dangerous, ALF is forced to spend most of his time in the Tanners' attic or garage, keeping hidden from the neighboring Ochmoneks, Trevor (John LaMotta) and Raquel (Liz Sheridan). The main appeal of the series was ALF's decidedly non-alien take on human occurrences, such as calling the president to offer his thoughts on nuclear weapons in "Pennsylvania 6-5000," befriending and dating a blind woman in "For Your Eyes Only," and submitting scripts to his favorite daytime serial in "A Little Bit of Soap." Television mainstay Anne Meara had a four-episode guest stint as Kate's mother, Dorothy, in Season 1. And she must have enjoyed herself, because she eventually went on to write an episode for the series' fourth season. Also popping up in Season 1 episodes are football star Joe Namath (as himself in the episode "Jump"), as well as Bob Newhart Show refugees Bill Daily (in the hilarious "Going Out of My Head Over You") and Marcia Wallace (as schoolteacher Mrs. Lyman in the episodes "Weird Science" and "It Isn't Easy...Bein' Green").
