Mork & Mindy: Did You Know?

  • Mork & Mindy was a huge ratings hit it's first year finishing tied for 3rd with Happy Days with a 28.6 rating ranking behind only Laverne & Shirley (#1) and Three's Company (#2). They messed with the time slot and the characters the next season and the show consistently lost viewers.

  • Mork & Mindy was a spin-off of Happy Days. Mork (Robin Williams) appeared in two episodes: My Favorite Orkan (originally aired 2/28/78) and a follow-up episode called Mork Returns (originally aired 3/6/79).

  • Mork & Mindy aired on Nick at Nite from March 4, 1991 through September 30, 1995.

  • Robin Williams won a 1979 Golden Globe award for best tv actor - musical/comedy for his role of Mork.

  • Robin Williams and Pam Dawber won People's Choice Awards after the first season of Mork & Mindy.

  • Billy Warlock was one of the stunt doubles for Robin Williams on Mork & Mindy.

  • Robin Williams directed some episodes of Mork & Mindy.

    Mork and Mindy animated cast

    The cast of the prime-time Mork and Mindy series lended their voices to this animated version of the show.

    The series chronicled alien Mork's experiences as a student at Mt. Mount High, where he had enrolled under orders from Orson, his superior from the planet Ork. Orson wanted him to report back on the lifestyle of teen-aged Earthlings.

    The series began September 25, 1982 and ran until September 3, 1983. Voices from the live-action series included Robin Williams as Mork, Pam Dawber as Mindy, Conrad Janis as Mindy's father Fred McConnel and Ralph James as Orson. They were joined by Stanley Jones as Mr. Caruthers, the principal, Shavar Ross as Mork's friend Eugene and Mark Taylor as his friend Hamilton.

    The cartoon, a Hanna-Barbera Production, was actually animated by Hanna-Barbera's sister company, Ruby-Spears Enterprises, in an arrangement similar to the one they did that year with Scooby Doo.

    I have 4 episodes of the animated series on tape and would be interested in trading for any others. Also, have many other 80's cartoons like The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang and Laverne and Shirley in the Army
