ALF is returning to TV.

The classic '80s character will host "ALF Week" on The Hub from July 16-19. The wise-cracking alien will have new material and give his take on episodes of "The Facts of Life," "Happy Days," "Mork & Mindy" and his own series, "ALF," during the special week of programming.

The ALF Week primetime lineup:
Mon., July 16: "ALF" (7:30 p.m. ET) and "Mork & Mindy" (8-10 p.m. ET)
Tues., July 17: "ALF" (7:30 p.m. ET) and "Happy Days" (8-10 p.m. ET)
Wed., July 18: "ALF" (7:30 p.m. ET) and "The Facts of Life" (8-10 p.m. ET)
Thurs., July 19: "ALF" (7:30 p.m. ET) and four fan-favorite episodes (8-10 p.m. ET)

"ALF" creator Paul Fusco told The Hollywood Reporter he's pitching a feature film starring the furry star.

“I think the timing is right. That’s a big important thing, timing,” Fusco said. “There have been movies out there of characters that I didn't think were on the same parallel as ALF that got movies made, so I think it's time. I think it could be a home run on a lot of levels."
