Arrow I know why Alf was cancelled

Since it's 4 few years (1986-87, 87-88, 88-89, 89-90) were coming to an end, there were new situation comedies coming/already on such as FAMILY MATTERS, STEP BY STEP, WONDER YEARS, DOOGIE HOWZER, DINOSAURS, EMPTY NEST, etc. The people must've been looking forward to the new shows 'eh

I think Alf, simply ran its course. That's why it was cancelled.

I agree. ALF's plots and characters went as far as they could.

I agree. As much as I love this show, I definitely think the last season is pretty bad. They all just seemed to be getting tired of the show, and the addition of Neal only made that worse. I can't stand him! The guy's a bad actor, and he played a ridiculous character - no worse combo than that. I think the first seasons of ALF are golden, but by 89-90 it was rapidly going down the tube...

On the contrary, the show was cancelled because the actor who played ALF was a convicted pedophile.

...you have any proof of this, or are you just trolling?

BTW - there were two different actors that "played" ALF, are you accusing BOTH of them?

I have to agree, that Alf had run its course. Four years was all they could manage.

Never cared for Project ALF.I watched it the night it aired with my family.We was glade that ALF was returning because we did not like how the series ended. I just did not think the movie was as good or funny as the TV series.My biggest complaint about the movie was that they did not bring back The Tanners.There was so many episodes from the series that was better. It seems like everytime they bring back a TV series as a movie it sucks.Look at those awful Incredible Hulk TV movies that they did in the late 80's.

The show was getting tired and the sci-fi sitcoms on of the 80's were on their way out. I knew ALF was in trouble after Small Wonder was cancelled. Looking back at these shows today, the storylines were bland and graphics were cheesy but they kept one's attention.

Project ALF sucked ass big time. While grateful to see some resolution for ALF, the Tanners needed to be there also. I know the guy who played the father probably wouldn't have been there since he was celebrating the cancellation back in the day. I always thought the perfect block would have been ALF and Small Wonder back to back. What do you think?

No, Procject: ALF is not as good as the TV-series though. I thought the Tanners should starring in it too.

But why would Max Wright feel that strongly against it? Oh well, maybe he just was tired of it.

I remember reading in various articles that Max Wright got tired of the long rehearsals and production work it took into filming the show. I would also assume that he was probably ready to move on to other roles to keep from being typecasted as Mr. Tanner from ALF.
