80s Awesomeness! is an original concoction of my

Who didn’t love this cat-eating alien? Hell, I don’t even remember what the premise of the show was about. But I do remember having an ALF lunch box. It was red. Here’s the basic rundown –
Gordon Shumway, last known survivor from the planet Melmac, crash-lands his spaceship into the Tanner family’s suburban garage. Willie dubs him “ALF”, short for Alien Life Form. The Tanners decide to take ALF in as a member of the family. (source)
Nope. Didn’t even remember that ALF’s real name was Gordon. Kind of lame but okay. Still, I know I liked the show. I think.
