Michu Mescaros Passed Away!

Michu Mescaros passed away. He portrays the iconic sitcom character ALF.

You know I grew up in the 1980s watching the comedy ALF. You may have not seen him in the flesh but he was the man who played ALF.

Michu Mescaros passed away at the age of 76. He was the man who dressed in the ALF costume. Meszaros was standing at the height of 2 feet 9 inches tall.

He was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home about a week ago by his manager. He spent days in a coma.

A GoFundMe page was launched to pay with his funeral expenses. He was born in Hungary. He performed in the circus before heading to television. He was billed the "smallest man in the world" as he worked in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in the 1970s.

He had opportunities to perform with the late Michael Jackson.

He got to opportunity to play the role of ALF when the shots required ALF to move around the home.
You look so delicious!
They wanted to give the impression of ALF being not only a puppet but an actual living being.

ALF (born Gordon Shumway) is a friendly and sarcastic extraterrestrial who left his dying planet of Melmac to find a new home. He crash landed in California in the home of The Tanners.

The Tanners would keep ALF in hiding. ALF would often create havoc around the home by trying to fix things. He would often hide in the kitchen away from the noisy Ochmoneks. They would often try to call the feds on the Tanners. ALF would often devise a plan to keep him and the family safe from the feds.

ALF would often find interest in the food, watching television, and sneaking out of the house much to dismay of Willie Tanner. He would often eat the food knowing that the Tanners banned him from eating the family cat.
ALF was one of the country's most memorable sitcoms.
The show was created by Paul Fusco who also voiced ALF. The show was on for nearly four years and went through 4 seasons. It also had two animated sitcoms and a TV movie.

Word on the street, Sony is working on an ALF motion picture movie.

ALF is an iconic show. The show was prime around the 1980s. NBC had led the during the 1980s with The Cosby Show, A Different World, ALF, and Family Ties dominated the network.

World News Today send our condolences to the family of Michu Mescaros.
