Regarding alien invasions . . . not every alien probes your eyeball or pops through your intestines in a gory mess! I find it deplorable to assume that those from another universe are just up to no good. As a matter of fact, once I started to think about it, we’ve grown up with a lot of pretty funny and friendly aliens in our time here on this planet. Here is a “nice list” of intergalactic beings that have made us smile, hoot and holler — and some we have even bought the stuffed toy to hug on forever and ever. Do you remember all of these?
The Aliens from Toy Story (1995, 1999, 2010); The Ewok and Chewbacca from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983); E.T. and Gertie from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982); Sparks from Aliens in the Attic (2009); Lilo & Stitch (2002); Fred, Barney and The Great Gazoo from The Flintstones (1965); Alf and the Tanner family from ALF (1986-90); Evie from Out Of This World (1987-91); Mork & Mindy (1978-82); The Yip Yips from Sesame Street (first appeared, 1971); Marvin the Martian from Looney Tunes (1948).
Which kid-friendly aliens did we miss? And who do you think are the best and funniest aliens in the universe?
