Trivia: Alf
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Helen Seinfeld of Seinfeld fame played nosy neighbor Raquel Ochmonek.
    • David Ogden Stiers of Mash fame appears in the "Turkey in the Straw" two-parter as a homeless man that ALF befriends.
  • Old Shame: None of the main human cast members had any major success after ALF, and all four actors playing the Tanner family have since retired (possibly as a result) from acting. Max Wright wanted nothing to do with the show for a long time afterwards, but later changed his mind, acknowledging in interviews how much joy ALF (the show and character) has brought to the world over the years.
  • Screwed by the Network: NBC promised that even if they canceled the show, they would make sure there would be an episode to resolve the Season 4 cliffhanger; they went back on that.
