* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music Of Awesome]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY3rlYHOTk4 The rock video ALF recorded for Lynn.]]
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBpXoeZzRdI second opening theme]] is very uplifting.
* FanonDiscontinuity:
** The made for TV movie, to some. Even if it does make for a much [[DownerEnding darker end to the series.]]
** Ditto for the aforementioned series finale.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: ALF is particularly popular in Germany, being one of the few 80's {{Dom Com}}s on public television that are easily accessible for children, as well as sporting a great dub. The series was so popular in Germany that the made for TV movie was even released to German movie theaters.
** Ditto in Mexico.
** It's one of the most popular shows ''of all time'' in the Ukraine.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** The exchange between Alf and Jake in Shake, Rattle and Roll where Alf explains all the ways Jake could die in his own home and tells him that he loves him in case he doesn't see him again becomes unintentionally disturbing when one realizes that Jake never appears again after that scene.
** Willie Tanner not only acted as a conscience for Alf but also as a disciplinarian, having to lay down the law or even punish Alf when he went too far (which was frequently). Willie's actor Max Wright ended up getting in trouble with the law in the years after the series ended; he was arrested for drunk driving in 2000 and again in 2003.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: [[http://cinemassacre.com/2014/12/12/alf-angry-video-game-nerd/ Well, the plot's similar to the E.T. Atari game for starters....]]
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** The actress who played Raquel Ochmonek, Liz Sheridan, would end up becoming ''more'' well known for her role on ''{{Series/Seinfeld}}'' as Helen Seinfeld, Jerry's mother.

** [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie Major Healey]] appears here as Larry Dykstra, Alf's therapist. Later in one episode, the character is voiced by [[Creator/HarryShearer Mr. Burns himself]].
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs. Subverted; Jerry Stahl freely admits his episodes were written on drugs, including the one where a giant cockroach tries to eat Alf.
