This picture of Alf was on one of the reels that went into my viewmaster when I was little. I had never seen Alf the show, and this picture scared the living daylights out of me. I could never remember which reel it was on, so I would go through my reels and anticipate the coming of Alf every time I clicked the orange finger tab. Just like turning the handle on a jack in the box. When Alf finally did appear I would get that feeling that you get in your heart, when you almost hit another car while driving, that feels like a tiny heart attack, and then I would have to go do something else until I got over it.
