When was Alf so popular? According to Wikipedia.org (it's not all scary), Alf aired from 1986 to 1990. I'm thinking I was maybe 10 or 11 for this Alf birthday party. My mom tracked down an Alf cake pan. I wore one of my two Alf shirts. I had an Alf stuffed animal that talked. And I invited all the girls from my class at school. Was Alf ever really that cool? But I was all about Alf. What's funny is that I think I was all about Alf because it was my dad's favorite show. He totally loved it. And maybe that was just the act he put on to entertain me. But I think he genuinely loved the show Alf.
Princess Sparkley saw this cake picture and asked me who Alf was. How to describe Alf? I basically said he was a sort of part monkey, part aardvark looking, really furry alien that ate cats and was stranded (?) on the planet Earth. My husband added that he had a girlfriend named Rhonda. It's hard to believe the show aired for four years isn't it?
