A furry alien wiseguy comes to live with the Tanner family after crashing into their garage.
Prior to the show's debut, it received heavy promotion and was seen as a potential break through series. However, NBC came close to canceling the show during or after the first season due to marginal ratings and mixed reviews. However, the show was kept on largely due to extensive moneys invested in licensing agreements relating to the ALF character.
Well, ALF, while we're gone, I trust you won't be getting into any mischief.
ALF: You do?
Willie: Not really, but we gotta go.
In the opening credits of Season 1 & 2, the studio lights are visible on the left hand-side in the shot of Brian.
In the 2nd opening credit (Series 3 - 4) ALF and the Tanner family are seen watching home movies of ALF.
For syndication the episodes were cut down to 21 minutes. These edited versions were used for the US DVD release, while the European sets featured the 24 minute full length episodes.
