I remember this abomination. Being a mere seven years old, I tolerated it but I didn't find it funny. The only episode I recall is one where Scorch had eaten a bunch of missing household items, the standard sitcom plot for every family-with-a-wacky-pet show ever.
People who aren't around or don't remember when shitty TV shows try and fail are just left to wonder what the producers were thinking. In the case of "Scorch," it was obviously trying to cash in on "Dinosaurs."
Also that preload image looks like Will Ferrell giving a little girl a creepy shoulder rub. Is this "Scorch" or one of those molester awareness videos we had to watch in the 4th grade?

I don't know how many people lost their jobs over this, but it probably wasn't enough.

Holy shit I didn't just dream this after all (I wish I had).
Needs a "Horrible Sitcom Infinity" tag.
Daddy, I think he's funny!
The focus groups needed a little help to see we were going for funny.
No one seemed to figure out what made the Alf model work. This is just more evidence of that.

Another key part of the ALF model is a cast who, behind the scenes, can't stand being on the show. You get bonus points for hiring a foil with a real-life penchant for recreational drugs, and homeless men.

Scorch is still around, with an annoying in-character bio:
Great, now we need a "not ALF" tag.
