ALF Merchandising

Especially in the late 80s, really lots of ALF products have been in the shops. So here's an overview about the ALF merchandising, but unfortunately, I'm located in Germany, so most of this info below focuses on stuff that has been available in Germany. So on this page you'll find info about:

And a few links to stores selling ALF merchandising are on this page, too...

And you can also buy ALF-related products right now, with a possibility to purchase them online!!

ALF books

Starting in 1988, lots of ALF books have been published in Germany, for example the books by Rainer Büttner, who told the stories of a few TV episodes...

There are two more books out of this series of books, also by Rainer Büttner, called "ALF - Lieber ich als keiner" and "ALF - Total gut drauf". Furthermore, there are the "ALF - das Sprüchebuch" with ALF's best quotes and the "sequel" "ALF - das zweite Sprüchebuch". There's also a book called "Alles über ALF" (=Everything about ALF) by Siegfried Rabe, that's the guy who translated the ALF tv show into german and created the german ALF quotes. An excerpt of this book, the ALF-ABC is available in the german-language part of Stephan's ALF-Page. And then, finally, I heard of another german-language ALF book called "ALF - Meine Memoiren"...

Well, the books are out of print, but you can also try to get one copy of them at, that's the german version of Just enter "ALF" as a search term...

In the United States, there also have been ALF books, of course, but it seems like most of them haven't been "novels" or paperbacks but color books or books for children (e.g. "ALF learns about Numbers"). You can still try to get some or at least more info about at, just enter ALF into their book search. Or you can try it at
So if you know more about ALF books or ALF merchandising in general, please send me an e-mail. Thank you.

But even in the last years, new books have been published which are analysing the TV culture, and they are also about ALF. Two newer books also dealing with ALF are:

Von Alf bis U.N.C.L.E.
Anglo-amerikanisches Kult-TV.

This book is from 1997 and deals with US tv series. It's very informative...
paperback, 245 pages, german
You can order it at
Lexikon der berühmten Tiere. Von Alf und Donald Duck bis Pu der Bär und Ledas Schwan.

Lexikon der berühmten Tiere.
Von Alf und Donald Duck bis Pu der Bär und Ledas Schwan.
by Karen Duve and Thies Völler
This book is brandnew, and it's about famous animals (TV and comic characters). I don't know why they are considering ALF an animal, I mean, he's an alien, isn't he? But so he also has a chapter in it...
paperback, 840 pages, deutsch

ALF posters

Due to ALF's popularity, of course also many ALF posters have been available in Germany in the 80s. Now only the poster from the made-for-tv-movie "Project: ALF" was available at the TV-Movie MusicStore until summer 1999. Now they don't have it anymore...

But the good thing is: A few really cool ALF posters are still available in an very big size at my ALF posters page... :-)

ALF video tapes

Six german-language ALF video tapes, each with 3 episodes on it, have been published in Germany by TaurusVideo/Lorimar Television in the late 80s. Today, they are still available for rent in the video stores everywhere. It seems like you can also still buy them at MusicShop. Just enter "ALF" into the search, and the videos called "ALF 1-5" are the ALF tapes...

ALF cassettes

In germany, also cassettes with ALF radio plays on it have been popular. Over the years, the company Karussell published 43 cassettes, each with 2 episodes on it. In addition to that, 10 ALF specials have been produced...
