Gordon Shumway, better known by his nickname ALF (an acronym for Alien Life Form), is the main character of the television sitcom ALF. He is an alien from the planet Melmac whose Orbit Guard ship was thrown into space when his planet was destroyed in a nuclear war. He then followed an amateur radio signal to Earth and crash-landed into the garage of the Tanners, a suburban middle-class family in the San Fernando Valley area. He is troublesome, sarcastic and cynical, and he sometimes puts himself at the risk of being discovered while doing some of his often unintentional pranks. However, if things have gone too far, he does as much as possible to make up for his mistakes, generally with good results.
