Alex Adam , also known as ALF's godfather which has not been brought up much raised ALF, during his childhood, and really made him flourish.
He is a pivotal yet unpopular character in the ALF universe. One day ALF followed an amateur radio signal to Earth and crash-landed his ship into the garage of the Tanner family.
The Tanners are a suburban middle-class family consisting of the social worker Willie , his wife Kate , their children Lynn and Brian , and their cat Lucky.
ALF increased the Tanners' expenses. The budget for extra food and repairs for damages in the house were what forced the Tanners to increase their spending budget.

He has billion trillion family Contents [ show ]. Categories :. ALF a. Gordon Shumway is homeless, but he is not the last survivor of his species.
He becomes a permanent member of the family, although his culture shock , survivor guilt , general boredom, despair and loneliness frequently cause difficulty for the Tanners.
Despite the problems and inconveniences his presence brings into their lives, they grow to love him, though some episodes make it clear they are also afraid of how their lives would be turned upside down if word got out that he has been living with them.
While most of the science fiction of ALF was played for comedic value, there were a few references to actual topics in space exploration; for example, ALF uses a radio signal as a beacon in the pilot episode.
In the episode "Weird Science", ALF tells Brian, who is building a model of the solar system for his science project, that there are two planets beyond Pluto called "Dave" and "Alvin" as in David Seville and Alvin from the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise , which gets Brian in trouble at school.
However, after ALF makes a call to an astronomical organization and states that "Dave" is known by the organization, Willie comes to believe that "Dave" could be the planetoid Chiron or "Object Kowal".
ALF then shows Willie exactly where "Dave" is on an intergalactic map of the universe. Changes occur within the Tanner household over the course of the series, including the birth of a new child, Eric the reason for adding a baby in the series being that Anne Schedeen was pregnant at the time ; ALF's move from his initial quarters in the laundry room to the attic, which he and Willie converted into an "apartment" and the death of Mr.
Meow in season four's "Live and Let Die"; in this instance, ALF finds that despite his occasional attempts to catch Lucky with the intention of making the cat a meal, as cats are the equivalent of cattle on Melmac, he has come to love and respect the family pet too much to do anything untoward with Lucky's remains.
When ALF acquires a new cat with the intent of eating it, he actually grows fond of it and allows it to be adopted by the family, although he admits to the Tanners he has become the worst kind of Melmackian, a "cat lover".
Producer Bernie Brillstein was approached to see Fusco's audition with a puppet character but was initially uninterested, having managed Jim Henson for years and regarding Henson as the best creature-puppeteer in showbiz.
However, Fusco's brief performance as ALF won over Brillstein, who thought the character was hilarious and strong enough to be the focus of a series.
Fusco co-produced the series with Tom Patchett. Patchett also co-created, wrote, and directed the series. The series was first syndicated by Warner Bros.
Television and Lorimar-Telepictures. The US syndication rights are currently owned by Debmar-Mercury as its parent company, Lionsgate , now owns home video rights.
All confirmed during a People magazine interview that there were constantly high levels of tension on the set.
He admitted to being "hugely eager to have ALF over with. There were no goodbyes. A minute show took 20, 25 hours to shoot. The whole thing was a big dysfunctional family.
There was no way we could have made it go any further or any faster," he insisted. Despite what people thought, that there was a lot of tension on set, there really wasn't.
Fusco was notoriously secretive about his character up until the series' premiere. During the show's production, Fusco refused to acknowledge that the puppet ALF was anything other than an alien.
All involved with the production were cautioned not to reveal any of ALF's production secrets. The set was built on a platform raised four feet above the ground, with trap doors constructed at many points so that ALF could appear almost anywhere; Fusco operated him from underneath, so the unoccupied holes all over the floor were deep and treacherous.
The trap doors had to be reset multiple times, sometimes during a single scene. Principal puppeteer Paul Fusco who was mainly left-handed when puppeteering used his left hand to control ALF's mouth, while his right hand controlled ALF's right arm.
At times when ALF's full body was shown in the sitting position, Lisa controlled ALF's left hand by cable allowing slight finger movements.
There was additionally a third puppeteer, Bob Fappiano, who controlled ALF's facial and ear movements via a radio control offscreen. During tapings, Fusco would wear a head-mounted microphone to record ALF's voice.
The process resulted in numerous mistakes and retakes, making it impossible to record ALF in front of a live audience.
A laugh track was added during post-production. Fey said Fusco would only allow ALF to appear on the show if the puppeteers were hidden from everyone else.
While a puppet was usually used for ALF, there were some shots of the tiny alien running or walking around. This can be seen in one of the series' intros, which concludes with the Tanner family getting their picture taken; ALF played by Meszaros walks over to be part of the photo.
However, Meszaros' services became too costly as well as time-consuming, and the full ALF costume was abandoned after the first season.
ALF scored its highest ratings during Season 2 reaching tenth place in the Nielsen ratings. Ratings remained at a steady fifteenth place during Season 3, but plummeted to 39th place during Season 4.
NBC moved the show from its traditional Monday night slot to Saturday in March , but ratings continued to fall. The season-ending cliffhanger " Consider Me Gone " became an unintentional series finale when NBC gave Alien Productions a verbal commitment for a fifth season, but ultimately withdrew its support.
NBC executive Brandon Tartikoff later told Fusco that the network regretted cancelling ALF prematurely, saying "It was a big mistake that we cancelled your show, because you guys had at least one or two more seasons left.
Fusco commented in that his most enjoyable experience on ALF was sitting in the Writers' Room and pitching jokes while pushing the limit as to what NBC censors would allow.
Fusco commented that, "the greatest things were the jokes we couldn't put in the show. Fusco defended the premise saying that "ALF is years old, he can drink beer, he's old enough.
The cat-eating concept carried sporadically into the second season, with references including the "wedding cat" in the episode "Something's Wrong With Me," the Melmacian equivalent of a wedding cake.
For the hour-long season 1 episode, "Try to Remember," originally broadcast on February 9, , ALF tries to simulate a jacuzzi by bringing Kate's electric mixer into the bathtub, thus receiving an electrical shock that caused amnesia.
Fusco ended the original episode with a public service announcement from ALF himself, warning of the dangers of mixing water and electricity.
Despite this, NBC reported that a child attempted to recreate the scenario and nearly electrocuted himself in the process Fusco confirmed that the child was unharmed ; Fusco was forced to refilm the opening sequence, replacing the electric mixer with a manual egg beater.
ALF's amnesia is instead caused by a cranial concussion received after slipping in the shower a "thud" is heard rather than a "zap" , with all mentions of being shocked either overdubbed with new dialogue or deleted entirely including ALF's public service announcement.
This edited version was used for a Fall rebroadcast, as well as all future U. In , blooper footage surfaced in which ALF was made to deliver racial jokes and sexual comments.
He was actually mocking a then-recent episode of L. Law dealing with Tourette syndrome. Asked to comment, producer Steve Lamar stated that the footage was from an era when things were not so "ridiculously PC ".
The actor who dubbed ALF's voice in German, Tommi Piper, recorded two albums and four singles as the four-toothed, eight-stomached cat-eating alien between and From to the series has aired again on different channels in Bulgaria.
All releases contained syndicated versions, with running times of 21 minutes, compared to the original length of 24 minutes.
The minute episode "Tonight, Tonight", however, was split into two parts for syndication. The season four episode "Make 'Em Laugh" was presented in nearly its original length, with a single line of dialogue edited out.
The "To Be Continued In addition, most copyrighted music was excised from selected shows, shortening the running time by up to six minutes.
This resulted in heavy criticism. The language selections available are English, French, German and Spanish except for season 2 which, despite being dubbed, oddly doesn't feature Spanish, and the episode "Tonight, Tonight" which had not dubbed into German , with subtitles available in French, Dutch, Spanish, English and German.
The episodes span four discs and are complete, unlike their American edited counterparts, with a few exceptions:.
In the U. To capitalize on the success of the series, a spin-off animated series was produced, airing Saturday mornings on NBC.
This was a prequel series, set on Melmac before the planet exploded. The show focused on ALF, his family, his friends, and girlfriend Rhonda and their various exploits.
Each episode was book-ended by a live-action sequence involving ALF talking to the television viewers, setting up the episode and commenting on it afterward.
When the cartoon entered its second season, it was paired in a one-hour block with its own spin-off ALF Tales , which took Gordon and the cast of characters from season one, and recast them as characters from assorted classic fairy tales.Für die zusätzliche Zeit der Zusammenfassung mussten an anderen Stellen Szenen entfernt werden; diese waren daher nicht 15*4 worden.
