From Hollywood, it's The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Johnny's guest host tonight is ALF. Join ALF and his guests, his holiness Pope John Paul II, Dr. Joyce Brothers, and Joan Embry of the San Diego Zoo. This is Ed McMahon along with Tommy Newsom and the NBC Orchestra. And now heeere's ALFie!
If I say in the front of the show, 'The NBC Orchestra,' people tune-in expecting to see the NBC Orchestra. Now you're going to introduce a band? They'll think some people went home. –There are going to be some people going home very short--Sit down! Get that Mickey Mouse outfit together and have them sit down. Horns up. What're you going to do tonight, Doctor? –Well, we're going to stand around and wait till you guys decide if we're a band or an orchestra. –What would you prefer to be called? –Sweetheart.
