Who can forget ALF? The TV Show about an extraterrestrial who crash-lands himself into a life with the Tanner family. ALF's real name is Gordon Shumway, and he's the last survivor from the planet Melmac. Willie Tanner gives him the nickname ALF, which is short for Alien Life Form. The Tanner's are nice enough to take ALF into their home and hide him from the Military's Alian Task Force, but during his time there ALF drives them crazy. He breaks things and tries to eat their cat. His behavior doesn't stop the Tanner's from making him a permanent member of their family. It was a really funny Sitcom from the late 80s.
