    The city of Hawthorne, California, re-named their shortest street "Michu Lane".

Hungarian-born circus performer and actor Michu Meszaros was best known to most Americans as the "man behind the ALF costume" in the family sitcom, ALF. One-time smallest man in the world, Michu travelled the globe with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, entertaining audiences with his two-foot-nine-inch stature and astonishing performance skills.
