Let the Blog Challenge Begin!

So here we are at the A to Z Blog Challenge. :) Each day of the challenge, I'll bring my visitors back in time to a hit TV Show from the 80s---one for each letter of the alphabet. And I promise to keep it bite-sized.  Today we have:

ALF
1986-1990

Remember this furry, cat-eating, smart-ass from the planet Melmac? 

Quote:
"Putting humans in charge of the earth is the cosmic equivalent of letting Eddie Murphy direct."

Trivia:
ALF is actually an acronym.  Know what it stands for?

I loved Alf! Had a stuffed Alf, too. Alien Life Form?

Alf was a great show! Back when great sitcoms ruled the airwaves.

Actually, I almost did Alf for my "A" post! I'm doing a similar theme, my childhood memories of the 80's. I absolutely love the 80's so I look forward to reading more of your posts!

You know, our on-demand actually had an ALF Christmas special on it last year. So I watched it while packing for home, and can't lie...amid the laughter, a tear was shed. It was one of ALF's more moving moments...that one must've been up for an Emmy ;)

My daughter once asked me, "What the heck is that?" I said ALF, he was funny. She looked at me like I was the alien! LOL!

Ahhh, Alf! So many memories! You're off to a great A-Z start, Nicki. Think you and Alf will have fun with the alphabet!

Thanks for stopping by. Oh, but I've thought I've followed...the phone rang or something, ahhh, life!

How did it happen that I missed ALF? I grew up in the 80's but never did see an episode. What is wrong with me?

"Aline Life Form", I believe.

Good series... well from what little I can remember of it anyway. ;p Funny quote too. ;)

Have a good day, and God bless.
