A furry alien wiseguy comes to live with the Tanner family after crashing into their garage. —Kenneth Chisholm
The Tanner family is an average American family. One day, they discover that they have a visitor. He's small, he's furry, he's arrogant, and he's an alien from the planet Melmac. Unsure what to do, they name him ALF: Alien Life Form.
