I was recently reading Failure Pie in a Sadness Face by Brian Alan Ellis and I got to a line where he mentioned surfing ebay unsuccessfully looking for Alf pajamas. I thought for sure he was screwing around and actually wandered over to ebay to look for myself. After all, I’d been over there just recently looking at Alf lunchboxes ($5-10 for either main style lunchboxes from back in the day, sans thermos, or upwards of around $30 for both styles with both thermoses). However, he was right. I didn’t find any.
Then I went to Google. Even Google shopping. Nothing. I could find no Alf pajamas.
Did the 80s really not have those? If they ever existed, someone would have to be selling them now. I just don’t get it. I think Ellis is onto something there. Or not.
