Mork & Mindy

Show Summary

Mork & Mindy was a sitcom that ran on ABC from 1978 until 1982. The series starred a relative newcomer Robin Williams as Mork, an alien who came to Earth in a large egg-shaped space ship from the planet Ork, and Pam Dawber as Mindy McConnell, the human woman who he lives with. The series was a originally a spin-off of Happy Days where Mork first appeared in the season 5 episode, "My Favorite Orkan". In that episode he threatened to kidnap Richie Cunningham and take him to the planet Ork, however his plan is foiled by Fonzie. In the spin-off series Mindy discovers Mork after he lands near Boulder Colorado. When she finds out he is an alien she vows to keep his identity a secret and allows Mork to move into the attic. Afterwards, many hilarious situations arise. Story-lines centered on Mork's attempts to understand American culture and human interaction. At the end of each episode Mork reported to his boss back on Ork (Orson) and said what he had learned on earth in that episode.moreless

    • Good show!

      This show aired in Russia maybe 15 years ago. And recently I watched some series on youtube and laughed many times anew. Sorry for my English.
    • Excellent show, excellent cast. Who would have thunk it to make an alien from outter space, played by the comic genious Robin Williams be so funny. I know alot of the show was adlibbed, and I think that is what made the humor the best.moreless

      Mork from Ork, (played by the comic genious Robin Williams) comes to earth and meets up with Mindy (also played by comic genious Pam Dawber), and hillarity ensues. You can't go wrong with this kind of humor. Only Robin could make you genuinely believe water was being sucked up by his finger and how he sat or visited was even better yet. I would love to own this show on DVD but in my area, it's difficult to find it, but trust me, I am on the hunt and desparately want the entire show for my personal library. And you have to love how he has his way of insulting his commanding officer, Orson.moreless

    • Mork and alien from Ork goes to earth to learn about our customs and life. Meets Mindy and halarity ensues.

      It's wonderful to see where Robin Williams first became well known to the TV audience. You can still see the influence from this time on his life in the work he contunes to do today. This is one of the funnist shows of all time and there will never be another one like it.
    • Classic TV!

      I watched this show back when it aired on Nick @ Nite in the 1980s. I really enjoyed this show. It is funny. It is a spin-off from the show Happy Days. Robin Williams as Mork is hilarious. What can I say about this show? Robin Williams is the perfect person to play Mork. He is just a funny guy. Playing an alien is up his alley.

      The writing was great. The ad-libbing was great. This show was great. I was a little kid when I watched this show and I haven't seen it since, but I'm sure I would enjoy it just as much today.moreless
