When I was little, I used to read my dad’s old comics (mostly Donald Duck) and sometimes there would be little ads featuring Alf and I would be so creeped out because I thought he was scary as shit. I mean, I fear dolls - Kermit haunted my dreams for years! When I was around 12 years old and skipped school almost everyday, I would spend my mornings in my beds watching TV and then I started watching the Alf show. And I started loving him. Somehow things that scares me fascinates me too. And somehow, just like the case with Kermit, I just feel a special connection to that big ball of fluff now and I get so happy every time I see his face or hear a reference to his show in other movies.
I still get pretty freaked out every time they show his whole body in the show, though.
