    I'm not sure if this is true, but I once read somewhere that ALF may make a real come back. Seeing him on last night's 75 years of NBC special conferms my beleif! True he has been in those 10 10 220 ads, buit that's not what I mean. I heard some loose talk of Paul Fusco (creator and Puppeteer of the melmacian) wanting to despirately bring him back to a regular show, perhaps a talk show. I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I, for one, am waiting for this funny, furry alien to come back to telvision!

    Yes, ALF is in the process of making a full time comeback - a deal for a spoof talk show was signed but fell apart because of cost cutting after the 9/11 attacks. Paul Fusco is getting other stations interested. I have an ALF forum at http://alf.proboards9.com where we talk about this kinda stuff.

    So what did ALF do on the NBC Anniversary show ? Was he a live guest ?

    More ALF Rumors?

    What about this guy who boarded a plane with an ALF doll full of drugs or something, huh? What went on with that, cause I dunno.

    What did ALF do, you ask? He was a guest for about five seconds. He was sitting next to the Dad from Family Ties and David Hasslehoff from night rider. He was also mentioned in MR. T's pitty list "I pitty ALF, He never got to eat the cat!"

    Um Kevin - this isn't gonna go down too well here but actually the rumors about using puppets to hide drugs on flights between the USA and UK was Miss Piggy, not ALF. The story was covered up quite well and the guys (not muppeteers) from Henson got off with a warning or something.

    It brings a whole new meaning to the words 'Smokey Bacon' !

    I'm just glad ALF was a guest at all - it's nice the shows achievements were recognised - a lot of others didn't even get a mention. It takes a brave producer to put a puppet on live during a black tie event to celebrate a networks success - kinda like the lunatics running the asylum !

    Geez, that stinks.

    Well, I think now we see why the Pig has such a short temper...

    Yup - i guess we know why she's got a big snout too ! ;-)

    ALF's no stranger to drugs though. I have outtakes where he is snorting powder off a desk ...... and i fully intend to send them to the national enquirer someday and make a mint. Smart huh ? Woccckkaaaaa !!!!!!

    No, it was just a jo schmo from the New York office taking some puppets to the Creature Shop for something or other. I've heard an extended version of the reports that circulated in the press and it seems genuine though of course Henson deny this ever happened (and that is NOT a white stain on Miss Piggy's dress) ! ;-)

    .... now that you mention it, I have noticed that ALF likes to snort Squid and Pudding. But that must be some alien thing.
