ALF is an American television sitcom that aired on NBC from September 22, 1986, to March 24, 1990.

The title character is ALF (an acronym for "Alien Life Form" whose real name is Gordon Shumway) who crash-lands in the garage of the suburban middle-class Tanner family. The series stars Max Wright as father Willie Tanner, Anne Schedeen as mother Kate Tanner and Andrea Elson and Benji Gregory as their children, Lynn and Brian Tanner. ALF was performed by puppeteer Paul Fusco, who co-created the show with Tom Patchett.

Produced by Alien Productions, ALF originally ran for four seasons and produced 99 episodes, including three one-hour episodes ("Try to Remember", "ALF's Special Christmas" and "Tonight, Tonight") that were divided into two parts for syndication, totalling 102 episodes. The series properly concluded with an unresolved cliffhanger, but a later TV movie, Project: ALF, served as a series finale for the franchise.

In August 2018, Warner Bros. Television announced the development of an ALF reboot. These plans were cancelled in November 2018.
