Nope. But now I feel bad that you actually did research...
I'm showing a little mercy early.

Aliens in the family
Pro is the opposite of Con                       Kids of today are so much different
This fact can clearly be seen,                  Don't you know?
If progress means to move forward         Just ask them where they are from
Then what does congress mean?             And they tell you where you can go.  --Nipsey Russell

Yes, it is indeed Aliens in the Family.
It's what happens when someone decides that if Dinosaurs was successful that the Brady Bunch with aliens would be just as successful.

A.L.F. probably had something to do with it as well...

Alf, vaguely... Alf was just a puppet most of the time. Both Dinosaurs and Aliens in the Family were shown on ABC on TGIF with people in full body costumes with animatronic heads made by Jim Henson's company. Except for the babies, of course. The only improvement Aliens in the Family had over Dinosaurs is that the baby in it didn't sound like Elmo...

A.L.F. was a huge hit involving an alien living with a family of humans. The technical details aside, I'm sure it was mentioned at the pitch for this show.

Possibly. Of course My Favorite Martian, Bewitched, or dozens of other sitcoms could have been mentioned. It's not like it was that creative. Which is probably why it only lasted 2 episodes before being pulled...

I have had a few turns here recently. Mandle would you like to take my turn? If not open it up to anyone else. I only got it cause I recognized the alien. only saw maybe 2 of the episodes and just couldnt get into it. Dinosaurs was pretty good, and I liked ALF cause he was always so sarcastic.
