A SitCom whose premise includes at least one {{Fantasy}} or ScienceFiction element, often an AmusingAlien. These were especially popular in TheSixties, as writers and networks cast about for novel alternatives to the more conventional {{Dom Com}}s of the preceding years.

See also: ComicFantasy, MagicRealism, MundaneFantastic, UrbanFantasy, and MonsterRoommate. Not to be confused with a comedy that just happens to be very good. See SupernaturalSoapOpera for a serious action and drama filled version that focuses more on the supernatural world instead of trivial everyday things.
