ALF: The Animated Series

The show was a prequel, depicting ALF's life back on his home planet of Melmac. Since the name "ALF" was an acronym short for Alien Life Form and only given to Gordon Shumway later on Earth, "ALF" is never used in the animated series except for its title. ALF would always be referred to as "Gordon", his true name, or "Gordo" by his friends Rick and Skip. In nearly every episode a live action ALF would appear at the introduction and conclusion of the episode; reading fan mail and saying that this show is a response to a huge demand of people wanting to know what his life was like on Melmac. The show is a prequel to ALF, depicting Alf's life back on his home planet of Melmac.
