Anyone else willing to admit to remembering this silly sitcom fondly? Actually, what I remember liking was the rather bad Saturday morning cartoon. I still remember the theme song.(“Gordon send us into outer space, cause there ain’t no one like you in the Melmacian race…”). It helped that my younger brother’s name was Gordon. I loved teasing him that he was actually an alien from the planet Melmac.

|The Wisecracking ALF plush doll.|
In 1987 Coleco made a talking plush version called Wisecracking ALF. It was a deluxe version of the stuffed ALF doll. (Trust me, I have both and the talking one is way nicer. Better fur, better detail, etc.) He took C cell batteries, and when you squeezed his tummy he’d say things like “Hey, Gimme Four!”, “No Problem!,” or “Here Kitty Kitty,” “Hey, Just Kidding”, and a couple of other ALF catch phrases..
Yeah I went a little out in left field with this one. What vintage “A” toy comes to your mind? Any favourites?
This round of ABC Wednesday I intend to cover the alphabet from A to Z through vintage toys. If you’d like to read a bit more on why I chose to do this you can check out this post here: A to Z in Vintage Toys, and Why.
