    "Michu Mezaros who played ALF in the 1980s — is fighting for his life after slipping into a coma.

    Michu’s manager, Dennis Varga, said the actor had been dealing with health issues after suffering a stroke 8 years ago.

    Dennis says late last week he called 911 after finding 76-year-old Michu unresponsive in the bathroom.

    Michu was taken to an L.A. area hospital where he remains in a coma.

    Michu got his start at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus before landing the role of ALF the alien. ALF was a puppet but Michu wore the costume when they needed walking/running shots.

    For the first few seasons of ALF, Meszaros donned a full-body costume of the character whenever a full-body shot of the alien was needed. Meszaros was used where scenes of ALF walking, running, or standing were required.

    Michu also did a cameo in 'Big Top Pee-wee' … and 2 Pepsi commercials with Michael Jackson.

    Michu later became friends with Michael Jackson. He told Joe Faulkner of Good Hollywood, that Michael Jackson gave him as a gift, the suit he was wearing in the photo above."

    They can just do CGI when they make the Alf movie.

    I never watched an episode of it. It seemed like alien exploitation.

    I always thought Alf was some kind of puppet. My mind is blown.


    Oh wait, he was a puppet the majority of the time. Mind no longer blown.

    I seen that lil fuck in Ringling Bros at MSG. The other big attraction was the unicorn.

    Ringling Bros was much better back then. I've taken my kid 2x now, and it seems much more song and dance act than circus.

    Yep. 2yrs ago they had elephants dressed up as wooly mammoths, that was cooler. Now they don't have elephants anymore, so the loons stand outside and yell about the poor tigers gettin whipped. They get pissed when I tell my kid, "Stay away from the crazy ladies."
