Theme song lyrics
- There once was an alien,
- Whose mother called him Trey,
- From the fanciest planet in the Milky Way.
- Stole his dad's ship,
- Took it for a trip,
- Saw Lake Erie on his radar and he thought he'd take a dip!
Behind the Laughter
- UpscAlien in da House is a parody of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
- The show also spoofs ALF, a 1980s sitcom about an alien who crash-lands on Earth and moves in with a human family.
- "UpscAlien" is a portmanteau of "upscale" and "alien".
- "UpscAlien" might also be a pun on "rapscallion", which is a term for a naughty or rougish person. It would be a fair characterization of Trey, considering that he stole his father's spaceship and uses his ray gun to transform things for his personal amusement.
- The theme song was sung by Darryl Phinnessee.
