ALF

A popular sitcom about a furry Alien Life Form from the planet Melmac who crash-lands on Earth and finds a home with a Southern California family. ALF, as he was called (on Melmac he was Gordon Shumway), was a font of wacky wisdom---no surprise, since he was born in 1756. The show spun off a couple of Saturday morning cartoon series.
