Gordon Shumley, better known as ALF is three-foot tall, furry alien from the planet Melmac. According to him, his home world was destroyed, though the means by how this happened has yet to be clarified. He was in his rocket ship when it suddenly malfunctioned, sending him on a direct course for the planet Earth. His ship crashed into the roof of a garage owned by the Tanner family. Family patriarch Willie Tanner discovered him and identified him as an A.L.F. (alien life form). Unsure of what to do, Willie reluctantly invited the creature into his home - a decision he has regretted on many, many occasions. [1]
