Rodney is a one-shot villain from the 1980's series ALF, featured in the episode "La Cucaracha". He was a Melmacian Cockroach that escaped to planet Earth in ALF's spaceship. ALF and Brian named him after Willie's brother.
Although in the beginning Rodney was small and relatively harmless, exposure to certain chemicals found in Earth bug sprays caused him to grow to the size of a Human and become very dangerous. After many failed attempts that only resulted in Rodney growing larger and larger, ALF finally managed to kill the creature using perfume.
