For those of you who aren't familiar with this rather strange fuzzy creature from the planet Melmac, allow me to fill you in....

The planet Melmac was located six parsecs past the Hydra-Centaurus Supercluster and had a green sky, blue grass and a purple sun. The commonly-used currency was 'Foam'. ALF's body was covered with orange fur. He had a rippled snout, facial moles, eight stomachs, and he had a penchant for eating cats (tabbies had been rumored as a favorite, but his preferred snack was never definitively stated). He attended high school for 122 years and was captain of a Bouillabaisseball team, which was played on ice using shellfish as a ball.
If you think waaaay back you may remember that in reality, melmac (or melamine), were those plastic dinner dishes used in the 50's and 60's.
