Who's Alf ?

ALF (an acronym for Alien Life Form) was an American TV series in the late '80s. It followed the adventures of Gordon Shumway (Alf), an alien puppet voiced by Paul Fusco, who crash landed at the Tanner household and lived with the family. The series has been referenced on Young Sheldon a few times already, and Howard discovered an Alf doll inside a box of memorabilia in the third season episode "The Precious Fragmentation" of The Big Bang Theory.

Thank you. I hadn't picked up those references at all. Sounds like an interesting series. I don't think it ever reached our shores.

Oh really? I always assumed it was one of those universally known cult shows cause it has been a massive hit here in Germany.

We had four TV channels from the early 1980s onwards. Most of the non-British programmes we got were Australian. There were some American ones though, especially when they started putting TV that wasn't cricket,horse racing or Wimbledon on during the day. Dallas, Dynasty, and I Dream Of Jeanie,were on that Sheldon might have seen. There was also Bewitched but perhaps his mother wouldn't have let him see that one. We liked Soap and WKRP in Cincinatti but they were on too late for the younger Coopers and the former was perhaps a little too racy for Mary to allow anyway.

It aired here too. Some years ago there were even reruns, so I caught a glance to see what it was (I wasn't alive/was very young when it originally aired).

Absolutely! I still have this ALF cassette. In the late 80's, when I was a kid, I had a quite a few of those cassettes. :icon_cheesygrin:

ALF did air here in the UK. IIRC it was hugely popular.

Wow ! When was that ? What channel ? What area ? If it was ITV it might only have been shown in certain regions. I never heard anybody talking about it although I used to get out and about. I never saw it listed anywhere. I took the TV Times  Central and Radio Times England. Where were you ?

It was shown on ITV during the latter half of the 1980's. I live in the Midlands.

Thanks. There were two Midlands ITV channels, Central East and Central West and some parts of the  Midlands got Granada which was supposed to be for the North. I used to save the TV Times but I sold a lot of 80s ones on eBay a few years ago. I'm going to have a bit of a dig and see if I can find one with ALF  listed for my area. If I've missed it I'll be cross because it sounds like fun.
