ALF Facts

According to my ALF Season One DVD (which I just recieved in the mail), here are some ALF facts:

Real Name: Gordon Shumway

First Job: Apprentice Lint Brush

Marital Status: Single…but still looking!

Birthplace: Planet Melmac (Lower East Side)

I wasn’t aware of the Apprentice Lint Brush, but it’s good to know.

Check out Stephan’s ALF-Page for all your ALF info.
