I consider the Alf Shows & cartoons to be one of the best TV series ever.
Rothwell Thompson-Stewart
ALF was my favorite show when I was a kid and I'm thrilled to watch these old episodes with my own daughter.
Kristin A. Flores
This is a great collection of Alf cartoons; funny, silly, and a little weird.

I've been waiting for this a long time. I even wrote DIC entertainment 4 years ago to find out when ALF Tales and The ALF animated series would be released. There was no answer. Now my prayers have been answered. It may sound like hyperbole, but the ALF cartoons rank with Rocky & Bullwinkle and other Jay Ward/Bill Scott creations - Fractured Fairy Tales, Mr. Peabody, Dudley Do-Right, George of the Jungle, et al - as some of the funniest cartoons ever created. Not in the same genre as cartoons from the golden age of the movie studios - MGM, Tex Avery, Warner Bros. etc. - but of same limited animation as R&B where story and dialog count as the essential elements, these mini-masterpieces have done more than achieve a high level of hilarious, dead-on satire, but have also captured the spirit of the time in which they were created.

Finally! After years of wishful thinking, it's happened. I'm so glad that animated Alf has seen the light of day! Over the years I managed to find a few PAL videotapes which I transferred to NTSC, but having so many episodes finally available on DVD is great. As was mentioned, the Alf animated series ranks up there with other modern classics. I've never understood why it didn't develop more of a following among animation fans, maybe these two releases will change that. Even folks who aren't fans of the 'flesh and fur' Alf owe it to themselves to check out the animated series. It is quite different from the primetime TV show, it has much more of an edge...very bizarre at times. The writing is excellent, as is the voice characterization. Awesome stuff all around, highly recommended!

This is a great collection of Alf cartoons; funny, silly, and a little weird. The environments and characters are very alien and still familiar enough to get you to identify with the humor. There is some slapstick reminiscent of the old "Loony Toons" cartoons with a little "Three Stooges" thrown in. THIS IS DEFINATELY "KID SAFE", and fun for parents to watch too. My favorite episode is "Hair Today, Bald Tomorrow" where ALF is enchanted with a hair growing/removal version of the Midas touch.

BE WARNED, the whimsical opening theme song is extremely catchy and will stick in your head like gum in your hair!

I, too, been waiting for this. I watched the series when I was in my 30's, and I was thrilled that the writers had gone to the trouble of creating a whole planet from scratch and had gone far beyond the call of duty in filling in the gratuitous details. Every element of Melmac is its own. Every cup and saucer is non-earthly. Alien words are abundant. Some of the background music is jaw-droppingly unfamiliar, while some of it is filled with jazz saxophone. There are lots of "Wow!" moments.

And of course, at the same time, it's a great satire of American culture (and the military). For instance, TV commercials pop up constantly (on perfectly circular Melmac TV screens). In other words, this is true science fiction. All begun a decade before "Futurama" (and a year before "The Simpsons" started).

This DVD contains the first 9 of the two seasons' 26 episodes. I hope enough people buy Vol. 1 to justify Vols. 2 and 3, because there are episodes I'm still craving.

I also have to admit that it's somewhat hard to watch. The animation is cheap: sometimes when something moves, it changes shades of color back and forth. And the directing is awful. For instance, there's often an awkward silence when they want you to focus on something visual. And visual jokes sometimes go on too long. I guess these criticisms apply to "Rocky and Bullwinkle" somewhat, too, but that show wasn't as hard to watch.

How come we only get these two DVD's. There were 26 Alf Tales & I think 31 Alf Animated Adventures. A while back they were ALL listed & we were told that the rest were coming. Well that was several years ago now so if anyone knows if they are available please have Amazon inform me. I bought the two available DVD's from Amazon several years ago & am giving Amazon permission to forward my email address to reliable persons who might have any info on how or where to purchase the rest of these shows. I consider the Alf Shows & cartoons to be one of the best TV series ever.

When I was young the fall season meant two things besides falling leaves and carving pumpkins. It heralded the start of the school year and a new season of Saturday morning cartoons. I could hardly wait for the premier of the new fall lineup but year after year I found myself disappointed. We kids were fed a steady diet of low quality programming like Teen Wolf, The Snorks and Kissyfur. Then, in 1987 something magical happened. Starting at 10:00 AM children were presented with a solid hour and a half of creative, well produced programming including Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Ralph Bakshi's Mighty Mouse and Alf: The Animated Series. In a cruel twist of fate, the second season of Alf was pitted against another high quality cartoon, Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters on ABC as well as the second season of Pee Wee on CBS. In the end Alf usually won my attention until reruns started and then I switched to the Ghostbusters or Pee Wee. This was probably the peak of Saturday morning cartooning as far as I was concerned.

After more than 20 years Alf: TAS still holds up. I was surprised at how well I remembered details of episodes, right down to specific lines of dialog. The animation is organic, energetic and colorful and the writing is top notch for its day. It definitely has a late 80's feel to it but the creators really went all out to produce a fully realized Melmac (home planet of Alf). The supporting characters are great and Alf: TAS manages to do something so rare in cartoons. It's actually legitimately funny. What I can't deny is that the animated series has pretty much dropped from the public consciousness. It only survived two seasons (which is one more than most Saturday morning cartoons) before being completely revamped as the lamentable Alf Tales and then cancellation.
