Alex Adam was the mother of ALF and a rich trillionaire back on Melmac. After Flo Shumway was massacred by the Iranians from outer distopia, Alex Adam was there for ALF. This was presented in ALF: The Animated Series, episode 3, the lost episode that was recently found on an old floppy disk on Ebay, entitled “ALF: The Unreleased,” the disk went on EBay for about $1.2K and every ALF enthusiast has been dying to know what is really on the disk.

When ALF refers to himself in ALF (live) as “The Ol’ Alfer“, this is the name which Alex Adam used to be known as in Melmac. ALF later adopted this nickname from Alex Adam himself.

Something that Alex Adam is known to say is, "Poopy poopy dumb dumb", this is to mock how basic human language really is. Alex Adam was and still is one of the most intelligent on all of Melmac and Earth.

Alex Adam made his riches from his intergalactic company with a familiar name, “ALF!” This stood for Aluminum Lead Foam. ALF is also what his friends used to call him, later being passed down to Gordon Shumway or who most know now as ALF. Alex Adam would sell his resources to other planets for a very low profit. This would inevitably drain all of Melmac’s foam supply, which may be why it is one of Melmac’s most prized possession. On top of this, lead and aluminum are almost completely nonexistent on Melmac. If you’ve ever wondered how foam was really made, it doesn’t come from soap, it comes from Melmac

A widespread rumour is that Alex Adam is Willy’s grandfather, this was never confirmed in any episode we have access to today however in a supposedly lost ALF (live) episode, “Easter Egg Hunt“, the whole family gathers around and Willy is seen calling Alex Adam his father in the background.
