Alf

 ALFY   (Marvel, 1988-1992)

™ and ©1989 Alien Entertainment

Alf is an alien from the planet Melmac. While traveling through space, his craft developed problems and he crashed down on Earth, eventually winding up in the Tanner Family’s garage. Young Brian Tanner immediately took a liking to Alf and introduced him to his family: sister Lynn, baby Eric, and parents Kate and Willie. All of them eventually got used to having a wisecracking alien who looked a bit like an ugly teddy bear around the house. All of them, that is, except Lucky, the family cat. Cats, it seems, were something of a delicacy on Melmac, and Alf was continually chasing after her with dinner in mind.

A goofy, but remarkably popular television show, Alf also enjoyed a respectable run as a comic book. It ran some fifty issues from 1988 to 1992, along with numerous special editions.
