There are some good ones in this collection, especially Cinderella, who is visited by a Fairy Godfather who grants her three wishes she cannot refuse. Robin Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk have some fun jokes too. Don't expect any extras on this DVD. It's just not in the price point. However getting seven 22-minute episodes on one collection is a major plus, as opposed to the standard four episode collections these companies are still doing (as if they are stuck in VHS tape mode).
If you remember the show and remember getting some entertainment out of it there is no reason not to get this collection considering the price. If you only know Alf from the TV series and commercials this DVD is a different slant in Alf's world, but the irreverence is still there. If you never heard of Alf, but like strange slants in fairy tales this DVD is still worth a look.

Okay, so the animation is a little dated. Still, it's definitely worth a $10 preorder. If you're looking for something cute, funny, and harmless for when you have to babysit your nieces and nephews like I do, this is something they won't have heard of.
weekly show that was presented on Saturday mornings. Any ideas about where I can obtain that Saturday
morning show? Rock.
Even if your not a fan of Alf, the cartoon series sets itself apart with creative writing, flawless animation, fun stories. The Alf Tails series is especially fun to watch. There are some extremely entertaining characterizations as well including Ronald Regan and Johnny Carson. Some of the dialog is very reminiscent of the classic comedy of the Marx Brothers or Laurel and Hardy. Most of the jokes are based on the popular culture up to that time; something parents will find funny, but the kids will still enjoy this.
It's NOT as great as Mr. Peabody and Boy, but it's BETTER than the Alf human series, in my opinion.
