==Early Life==
[[File:Willie_at_Woodstock.png|thumb|left|Willie at Woodstock.]]William Tanner was born in March 11, 1941 with his unknown parents and had a brother named [[Neal Tanner]]. Neal was bullied in school causing his brother to call him a sissy and teaching him how to defend himself Like his wife, [[Kate Tanner|Kate]], he was a flower child during the 1960s. Willie's mother wore a wig, something that made Willie sad to discover when he was six years old. Willie had a grandfather that taught him to walk away from his bully [[Clarence]] instead of trying to fight him. The same grandfather apparently talked to corn chips. Willie dated [[Kate]]'s sister (which [[ALF]] refers to as "the hideous one") for a while before dating [[Kate]]. In his teen years, he would be called Boxcar Willie because he used to jump around trains and ride in the country Willie and Kate would later have a Honeymoon at Nigeria Falls in Summer of 1967.

Willie has had a somewhat difficult relationship with ALF. He does not appreciate ALF's carelessness or party animal attitude. Sometimes, what ALF would do what would cause Willie to lose his temper and get very angry with him, often followed by Willie screaming loud or banishing ALF to the garage. Despite their friction, Willie is interested in astronomy and as such, he considers it a blessing that ALF has landed in the Tanner home and is genuinely interested in what Melmac was like.
