— Alf – is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from September 22, 1986, to March 24, 1990. The title character is Gordon Shumway, a friendly extraterrestrial nicknamed ALF (an acronym for Alien Life Form), who crash lands in the garage of the suburban middle-class Tanner family.
— Herman’s Head – is an American sitcom that aired on the Fox network from September 8, 1991 until April 21, 1994. William Ragsdale stars as the title character, Herman Brooks. Herman’s thought processes are dramatized in a “Greek chorus”-style interpretation, with four characters representing a different aspect of his personality (played by Molly Hagan, Ken Hudson Campbell, Rick Lawless, and Peter MacKenzie).
— Duckman – The series centers on Eric T. Duckman (voiced by Jason Alexander) a lascivious, widowed, self-hating, grouchy anthropomorphic duck who lives with his family in Los Angeles and works as a private detective.
— Election – is a 1999 American black comedy-drama film directed and written by Alexander Payne and adapted by him and Jim Taylor from Tom Perrotta’s 1998 novel of the same title. The plot revolves around a high school election and satirizes both suburban high school life and politics. The film stars Matthew Broderick as Jim McAllister, a popular high school social studies teacher in suburban Omaha, Nebraska, and Reese Witherspoon as Tracy Flick, around the time of the school’s student body election. When Tracy qualifies to run for class president, McAllister believes she does not deserve the title and tries his best to stop her from winning.
— The Garage Sale – Three different stories that all happen simultaneously at the same location: a joint garage sale with three different couples who are all friends, and a host of typical garage sale denizens. An ensemble comedy in a unique format.
