Hey people, I just wondered who here likes ALF and what their favorite episode is.

My favorite episode of ALF was the one where he got addicted to eating cotton... aaah yes that was great. Classic humor right there

I don't remember the show well enough to remember any actual episodes. All I remember is that I watched it, a lot, and that ALF wanted to eat their cat. And I remember the look of the family members. And I remember they had a garage.

I remember that his real name was Gordon (Schumway?) and that I found it odd that, after they found out that his name was Gordon, they kept calling him Alf.

lol, yeah. That show was insane crazy. But as far as the whole "calling him ALF thing when they knew his name was Gordon." Have you ever called someone something for a really long time then tried to change? Its not to terribly easy :p Ah well, I just think that by that time they thought of him as ALF not "Gordon Schumway"

It's a great character, a great puppet design, and a great character voice performance.
But I think the Saturday morning cartoon was even better than the sitcom.The character is so strong it makes the transfer from puppet to cartoon without missing a beat.
Pretty clever cartoon,actually. Nice design too. I remember one - I think the ep was entitled "Hooray for Mellywood" that had a parody of dah Arnold called Ron Fishface. He starred in the Gutsquisher films.
My favorite quote *in Arnold voice*
"I must squish guts if I am to be, the Gutsquisher!!"
The director of the Gutsquisher films was Hershel Gordon Mucus. ;)

I remember liking the cartoon quite a bit as well. My whole family used to watch the sitcom together too, although I can't remember it well enough to remember any specific episodes. Mostly I just recall ALF trying to eat Lucky the cat all the time, because on his planet, Melmac, cats are the favoured dish. :D
