Holiday Weekend Schedule Also Features "Black Friday" Movie Marathon, Special Holiday-Themed Musical Episode of "Pound Puppies" and New Episodes Of "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic," "Littlest Pet Shop," and "Dan Vs."

LOS ANGELES - The Hub TV Network, one of the fastest growing basic cable networks year-to-date, celebrates "Fappiano" (the name given to "Thanksgiving" on ALF's home planet) with a special twelve-hour "ALF" marathon Thursday, November 22 (6 p.m.-6 a.m. ET) featuring favorite episodes of the beloved sitcom that the whole family can enjoy.

The holiday festivities begin Thursday, November 22 (6 p.m.-6 a.m. ET) with a Thanksgiving Day marathon of fan-favorite back-to-back episodes of "ALF" featuring the adventures of Gordon Shumway, a furry, wisecracking alien from the planet Melmac who crash lands into the garage of the Tanner family. The Tanners offer him a home and give him the nickname ALF, short for "Alien Life Form." Created by Tom Patchett ("The Carol Burnett Show") and Paul Fusco (also the puppeteer for ALF), the half-hour sitcom rose to popularity in the late 1980s cementing itself in the pop culture zeitgeist.

The night will wrap with the animated film Monster House (8-10 p.m. ET; encore 2-4 a.m.) featuring Kevin James (Hotel Transylvania), Nick Cannon ("America's Got Talent") and John Heder ("Napoleon Dynamite").

To get viewers even more into the spirit of the holidays, a special holiday-themed musical episode of "Pound Puppies," will premiere Saturday, November 24 (9 a.m. ET) which finds the Puppies in need of a miracle on Christmas Eve.
