What began as a spin-off of popular sitcom HAPPY DAYS evolved into superstardom for
Robin Williams in the pleasantly bizarre 1970's television series MORK & MINDY.
Earth to investigate the planet's inhabitants and report his findings to his
superior Orson, who appears only as a disembodied voice. Mork finds shelter and
friendship with an average Earth woman, Mindy McConnell (Pam Dawber), who serves
as bemused foil to some of her roommate's more other worldly behavior, such as
talking to plants or drinking through his fingers. Williams manic style is
tailor-made for his rainbow-suspendered, fish-out-of-water character, and much
of the series charm springs from his eccentric mannerisms and uncanny impersonations.
