  • Edited for Syndication: Unfortunately, this carried over to the DVD releases.
    • Also, the first version of the theme music was re-recorded in the key of C for some reason (it was originally in the key of D).
  • Old Shame: None of the main human cast members had any major success after ALF. Max Wright continues to act and received a Tony nomination in 1993. The other three regulars have since retired from acting. Wright wanted nothing to do with the show for a long time afterwards, but later changed his mind, acknowledging in interviews how much joy ALF (the show and character) has brought to the world over the years.
  • Screwed by the Network: NBC promised that even if they canceled the show, they would make sure there would be an episode to resolve the Season 4 cliffhanger; they went back on that.
  • Troubled Production: It has been described as being what Hell would be like for actors when they die. Due to the constant arduously technical demands of making the ALF puppet come to life, to film a 22 minute episode it took 20-25 full hours. It was incredibly demanding, and reportedly almost everyone on set was miserable.
