Goofs

Alf's dream is kinda lazy on calendaring events. His whirlwind week of fame begins on Monday the 26th and ends on Friday the 30th. His post-fame ten-year rut is illustrated by rapidly-flipping calendar pages which begin with January 1990 (the month this episode first aired), but the closest month before that with a Friday the 30th was June 1989. Continuing the lackluster production value of his dream, the ten years of months flapping by are the same 12 months, all from the 1990 calendar. See more »
