In ALF's daydream about what his life would be life after Kate and Willie pass on, he imagines that Eric is the host of a bizarre children's TV progarm called the Eric and Sparky Show. In the show, Eric is extremely obnoxious and encourages playing with sharp objects. His sidekick Sparky is played by ALF.
On the show, Eric reads a letter from Billy Redseed in Portland, Oregon where he asks to see Sparky jump through flaming hoops.
At the end of the daydream, Sparky is replaced by Bootsy, a person in a dog suit.
