ALF is an American television sitcom that originally ran on NBC from 1986 to 1990 and was created by Paul Fusco. The title character was Gordon Shumway, a friendly extraterrestrial nicknamed ALF for Alien Life Form, 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. The character of ALF was portrayed by a live-hand puppet operated primarily by Fusco.

Alf is seen in a dream sequence by Peter Griffin in "I Never Met the Dead Man".

Alf appears as the subject of an E! True Hollywood Story in "To Love and Die in Dixie".

In "Brian Goes Back to College", when Peter sees Brian wearing a tie at the television convention, he asks if he's Alf.

The plot to "Ratings Guy" is very similar to the ALF episode "Prime Time" where the Tanners themselves became a ratings family and ALF himself rigged the system to make his programs more enjoyable.
