Adorable Cat Eating Alien Makes Racial Slurs ... for Laughs

It’s two days before the day before Christmas, so while you’re all pretending to work, why not check out this blooper reel from the 80s alien sitcom, “ALF.” It’s eye opening: Among the highlights — ALF uses a lot of profanity; ALF makes passes at his teenage co-star Andrea Elson (who I had an insane crush on when I was a kid), asking her at one point to straddle him and, if I’m not mistaken, feigning masturbation; another “blooper” has Elson displaying a moment of child-actor diva-ness, when she calls her younger co-star a “little fucker,” and most damning, perhaps, a “blooper” around the five-minute mark where, ALF, pretending to have Tourette’s (riffing on an “L.A. Law” episode controversial at the time), wildly says the N-word over and over.

Only in the 80s, folks. Only in the 80s.
