Despite being off the air for almost three decades, ALF - an acronym for Alien Life Form - remains something of a hot pop culture property.

The '80s sitcom Alf may be getting a revival. ALF was performed by puppeteer Paul Fusco, who co-created the show with Tom Patchett. One idea would involve the character emerging from Area 51 to find himself in a very different world nearly 30 years later.

ALF focused on an alien -named after the acronym for Alien Life Form- from the planet Melmac who moves in with a suburban family after his spacecraft crashes near their home. Shows like The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory and Mr. Robot, as well as movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Hot Tub Time Machine, have all made reference to the alien puppet. The TV series also starred Max Wright and Anne Schedeen, as the Tanner parents Willie and Kate, and Andrea Elson and Benji Gregory, as their children Lynn and Brian. The studio is now looking for a writer for the project. But the nice thing about an Alf reboot is that the titular alien is still one of the best, most likable characters in TV history, whose series ended too soon after only four seasons on NBC between 1986 and 1990. Grammer originated the character on another classic sitcom, "Cheers".

The reboot's development is reportedly still in the very early going, with no writer or other creative voice yet attached to the new iteration of the property.
