Default What the Hell Happened to Robin Williams?

Williams had a guest spot on the popular 50′s sit-com, Happy Days. Williams played an alien named Mork who came to Earth looking for a human specimen. He chose Richie Cunningham to take back to his home planet of Ork. It fell to the Fonz to save his friend from a bizarre alien abduction. In the end, the entire episode turned out to be a dream.

The story goes that Williams was cast as Mork after meeting with producer Gary Marshall. Marshall asked Williams to take a seat and Williams immediately sat on his head. Marshall later commented that Williams was the only alien to audition for the role.

Williams’ guest spot on Happy Days was popular enough for Marshall to launch a spin-off show, Mork and Mindy in 1978.

(This was an exceptionally common practice at the time. Happy Days was a spin-off from Love American Style. In addition to Mork and Mindy, Happy Days launched six other shows: Laverne & Shirley, Blansky’s Beauties, Out of the Blue, Joanie Loves Chachi, and two cartoons.)

The new show had Mork landing on Earth in the present day of the 70s. Instead of abducting a human specimen, Mork’s mission was to study humans and report back to his boss on Ork. Mork was taken in by the beautiful and kind-hearted Mindy played by Pam Dawber. Hi-jinks ensued.
