On ALF’s home planet of Melmac, cats are equivalent to cattle, so when he goes to live with the Tanner family on Earth, he’s delighted to see Lucky, the family’s pet feline, lounging around the house. In nearly every episode, ALF tries to eat this poor cat, but despite his best efforts, cooking up kitty always fails.

And yet as ALF sits in the corner and plans his demise, Lucky just relaxes on the family’s couch without a care in the world. We can’t think of many other animals that would be able to stare death in the face on a daily basis like that.
