* BizarreAlienBiology: Unrestrained by a TV budget, the comic took this UpToEleven, revealing that Melmacians also become temporarily invisible if eating a sponge, exhale helium ([[{{Balloonacy}} making bubble-gum blowing a risky ting to get carried away with]]), their noses begin glowing with extremely bright lights if they get ''very'' excited, and every 75 years they go through a "shed cycle" wherein all their fur falls off and they're completely bald for eight hours before re-growing their fur through performing the "primal sneeze ceremony."

* {{Crossover}}: The comic managed to take part in 1988's MarvelComics CrisisCrossover, the Evolutionary War. [[spoiler:The High Evolutionary warned ALF to stay out of his plans and not mess with human development.]] In the last issue, the very last [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth-wall-breaking]] story, Alf got into an argument with Tom [=DeFalco=] about whether this crossover meant he was officially part of the Marvel Universe or not.

* PrimaDonnaDirector: Reportedly Paul Fusco was like this on the set. He was convinced that Alf was in fact real and didn't even care for the safety of the cast members in case a trapdoor came loose as he was more concerned about how Alf would look at certain angles. Fusco's behavior was possibly the main reason for the nightmarish production of the series.

Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedAssistance: Rhonda to the Tanners in the comic. She stayed with them a few times, and would always do her best to help them out, but as she was even less accostumed to Earth than Alf was, her attempts at helping always led to disaster.

Added DiffLines:

* HumanoidAliens: The aliens from Melmac look like a cross between dogs and aardwarks, and they also have a bit of Bizarre Alien Biology. But they still had a mostly human culture. And they could build spaceships, which could take them all the way to Earth.

** In "Prime Time," one is delivered to ''TheCosbyShow'', which is portrayed as dull and unengaging. ("Great episode last week, when Theo lost his comb. I never, ever tought he'd find it.")
