Invite an Alien to Live with You Day is celebrated every year on July 21st. It is dedicated to the show Mork and Mindy, which lasted four years. The protagonist of the show is the alien Mork, who came from the planet Ork to study human behavior. The representative of the planet Ork was played by Robin Williams; his spaceship landed in Colorado and the alien went to the city of Boulder, where he met a young journalist – Mindy (Pam Dawber). Each episode is dedicated to the clumsy Mork’s attempts to understand the culture of earthlings and return home.
The first episode was released in September 1978. The filming of the series began when the alien Mork appeared in one of the episodes of the Happy Days show. The character was so popular with the audience, it was decided to shoot a sequel, so the series “Mork and Mindy” appeared. The alien guest wanted to take Richie Cunningham, a boy, to his planet as a model of a person. However, Fonzie stopped him. Film critics praised Robin Williams’ talent, and his character has become a cult hit.
- Garry Marshall, producer of the TV series Mork and Molly, said in an interview that only Robin Williams coped with the alien role in the auditions.
- The house where Mork and Mindy lived really exists and is located in the state of Colorado, in the city of Boulder. This is one of the tourist attractions.
- In 2014, the beloved duo of Robin Williams and Pam Dawber reunited on Mad Men.
