Top 11 Family-Friendly Aliens

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?

Hugging my stuffed E.T. a little tighter tonight, Becky

  1. My daughter soliel (she's 3) loves aliens, so here are some movie's we have for her. Monsters vs aliens, megamind, chicken little, escape from planet earth, planet 51. Hope you enjoy

  2. The younger generation is being prepared for an eventual alien invasion.I find it interesting that an alien who invented a button that could destroy the universe is considered "family friendly". Thank God we humans are singularly blessed with a lack of ability to hierarchically arrange our moral, ethical and even scientific universe. The most dangerous things we will do each day are drive and step into the bathtub and yet we fear airplane crashes and serial killers more.
