|Laverne And Shirley and Mork And Mindy|
Laverne And Shirley (1976-1983)
Mork And Mindy (1978-1982)
Mork And Mindy was the second truly huge Happy Days spin off. Mork was an alien from the planet Ork played by comedian Robin Williams. He was introduced in an episode of Happy Days in which he had come to Earth to take back a human to Ork. Fonzie engaged Mork in battle - his cool versus Mork's alien powers. If Fonzie lost, he would have to go with Mork. Fonzie did lose and was taken away by Mork! At this point Ritchie woke up. It had all been a horrible dream!
Mork was such a great character they had to bring him back. Forgotten was that whole "it was just a dream" thing and the idea that Mork had taken Fonzie off. Mork was spun off into his own series. In it, Mork returns to Earth in the 80's (Happy Days was set in the 50's & 60's). He has been sent to Earth to study human's and human emotions. He quickly met and began living with a young woman named Mindy McConnell in Boulder, Colorado.
On the very first episode of the show, Mork And Mindy did a crossover with Happy Days and another Happy Days spin off, Laverne And Shirley. Mork tells Mindy he has been to Earth before several times. He has her basically plug herself into his head and proceeds in flashback to show her one of these visits. In it, he returns to Milwaukee to learn about human dating. As Fonzie is the expert, he goes to see him. Fonzie quickly arranges for Mork to have a date with Laverne of Laverne And Shirley. Hilarity ensues. No really. No sarcasm there. With Robin Williams, Penny Marshall and Henry Winkler playing around together as three of the most famous characters in TV history, how can you go wrong?Other Laverne And Shirley Crossover Links
