ALF is an American sitcom that aired on NBC between 1986 to 1990. The title character, nicknamed ALF (Alien Life Form), crashes to Earth and lands on the home of a suburban family. ALF was performed by puppeteer Paul Fusco. The show ran for four seasons and led to animated spinoff, a comic, and a talk show that ran for seven seasons. Much of ALF’s merchandise was released during 1987 and 1988, most notably trading cards that depicted stills from the show.
