Christmas Television - ALF's Special Christmas

Christmas Television - ALF's Special Christmas

ALF's Special Christmas as a Christmas episode of ALF that aired in two parts on December 14, 1987. One major part of the story is about ALF, by circumstance, meeting a sick girl at the hospital. The character in the show (Tiffany) was based on a real person who had leukemia, Tiffany Leigh Smith (another Find A Grave), who died on January 2nd, 1987. The photos on Find A Grave are of the actress who played her (Keri Houlihan) and not the actual Tiffany Leigh Smith.

At the end credits of Part 2, the two-part episode is dedicated to Tiffany Leigh Smith and Tom Kyle, who was a technical director of the show. If you haven't seen the episode, the episodes are all-around emotional, without giving spoilers, involving more than one character. It's definitely worth watching though and I would say it is amongst the best Christmas episodes of any show. You can find the full show available on many websites.

Here's a short promo for the episode:
