Join ALF This Thanksgiving on The Hub; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of November 19, 2012)

ALF Thanksgiving

The Hub TV Network celebrates "Fappiano" (the name given to "Thanksgiving" on ALF's home planet Melmac) with a special twelve-hour ALF Thanksgiving Marathon on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 22) from 6pm-6am ET, featuring favorite episodes of the beloved sitcom that the whole family can enjoy. Also, over the holiday weekend, the network offers up a feast of other family fare during a "Black Friday" movie marathon Friday, November 23 from 4pm-4am ET featuring Cats & Dogs, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and Monster House. The holiday weekend concludes on Saturday, November 24 with a lineup of new episodes from several Hub Original series including a special holiday-themed musical episode of Pound Puppies (9 a.m. ET), produced by Hasbro Studios.

As for ALF, it features the adventures of Gordon Shumway, a furry, wisecracking alien from the planet Melmac who crash lands into the garage of the Tanner family. The Tanners offer him a home and give him the nickname ALF, short for "Alien Life Form." Created by Tom Patchett (The Carol Burnett Show) and Paul Fusco (also the puppeteer for ALF), the half-hour sitcom rose to popularity in the late 1980s on NBC cementing itself in the pop culture zeitgeist. Ha!
Stay tuned next week when we detail all of the Thanksgiving marathons! We can't believe it is that time of year already!
