Product Description

Mork & Mindy was a spin-off from an episode of Happy Days seen in February 1978, in which an alien from the planet Ork landed on Earth and attempted to kidnap Richie. So popular was the nutty character created by Robin Williams that Williams was given his own series in the fall of 1978, and it became an instant hit. Mork was a misfit on his own planet because his sense of humor (he was heard to call the Orkan leader, Orson, "cosmic breath"). So the humorless Orkans sent him off to study Earthlings, whose "crazy" customs they had never been able to understand. Mork landed, in a giant eggshell near Boulder, Colorado. There he was befriended by pretty Mindy McConnell, a clerk at the music store run by her father, Frederick. Mork looked human, but his strange mixture of Orkan and Earthling customs--such as wearing a suit, but putting it on backwards, or sitting in a chair, but upside down--led most people to think of him as just as some kind of nut. Mindy knew where he came from, and helped him adjust to Earth's strange ways. She also let him stay in the attic of her apartment house, which scandalized her conservative father, but not her swinging grandmother, Cora.

Mork & Mindy: The Third Season finds the titular pair still working on their offbeat relationship but growing closer all the time in love and regard for one another. The season begins with the threat of Mork (Robin Williams) being recalled to his home planet Ork after he undergoes a personality change from too much Earth exposure. The wildman from another planet is suddenly acting like a bland suburbanite, upsetting Mindy (Pam Dawber) and requiring a visit from a revered Orkan elder (actually a boy, played by Vidal Peterson) who will either restore the real Mork’s character or take him back. "Mork the Prankster" finds the ever-curious extraterrestrial learning about the concept of practical jokes, then so offending Mindy with a prank gone bad that she moves out and must be convinced to take him back again. In "Mindy Gets a Job," Mindy applies for and receives an entry-level job at a Boulder television station, then finds herself having to go on-camera to do the news broadcast alone during a blizzard. When she runs out of steam during her report, Mork leaps to the rescue, giving Williams a prime opportunity to improvise his way through a stream of feverish free-association. In the season finale, "Reflections and Regrets," Mindy tells Mork about her greatest sorrow, and he sets about trying to ease her pain while also letting her know how he truly feels.

Of course, there are a number of episodes that concern Mork’s heightened sense of justice and fairness, including "Dueling Skates," in which Mork challenges a champion skater to a race in order to save the day care center where he works. "Mork, the Monkey’s Uncle" begins with Mork kidnapping a chimp from a zoo after concluding the primate was being mistreated. "Gunfight at the Mork-ay Corral" focuses on Mork’s effort to teach a young boy (Corey Feldman) about the virtue of non-violence. Finally, there are plenty of comic storylines that simply encourage Williams to display his genius, such as "Mork Meets Robin Williams," in which character and actor have a hilarious, face-to-face interview encounter. "Alas, Poor Mork, We Knew Him Well," is a very fun show about Mork’s neurotic reaction to an insurance salesman’s pitch about death from natural disasters. Mork & Mindy: The Third Season has a number of episodes from among the best of the old Garry Marshall-created sitcom. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Mork & Mindy Final Season, Please June 8, 2008
CBS/Paramount, please don't stall on Mork and Mindy again when there is one season left to release! I wish you release Mork and Mindy The 4th and Final Season (1981-1982) on DVD for the Holidays of 2008. It would be great if Mork and Mindy The Final Season is released on DVD before 2008 ends. You should have the color Blue with Mearth for the cover art of the Final Season. Please release the Final Season before 2009!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mork meets season three December 25, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Because the initial allusions to `interracial' co-habitation were loosing some `shock value', the series production team refocused storylines on Mork and Mindy as a romantic couple ("Mindy, Mindy, Mindy", "Mork, the Swinging Single") this season. They are moving from friends to `friends'----and quite smoothly!

However, Mork wasn't supposed to ever become too acclimated to earth (Putting the Ork back in Mork I, II). So, in order to successfully complete his mission, he is required to remember his extraterrestrial heritage. It's also the studio's way of acknowlleging that deleting Fred and Cora from the cast had been a mistake, and gennuine attempts were being made to repair things--such as the series Nielsen ratings.

As it turns out, Mork's reports have been so popular (regardless of whom he interacts with on Earth) that other Orkians want his job ("There's a new Mork in Town"). And can we really blame them! Aside from being an observer, Mork is a compassionate being who sincerely tries to help anything he thinks is hurting, even a chimp ("Mork, The Monkey's Uncle")

Pam Dawber gives another awesome lead performance in "Mindy Gets a Job". Fate requires her--with some assistance from Mork--to unexpectedly perform the local newscast as a solo gig. A blizzard conveniently prevents all of the old pros from getting to the station. So, there is nothing like the present to demonstrate that she has the competence necessary to successfully make it as a professional journalist. Episodes like these easily remind me why I had looked up to Mindy as a young girl--and now continue doing so; she remained both pretty and professional---even in a crisis.

Gender is again brought up in "Mork and Mindy Meet Rick and Ruby".

4.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all! September 14, 2007
ABC's MORK & MINDY's third season in 1980-81 began unusually late due to an actors' strike that began around July 1980 and ended about two months later. Robin Williams had just wrapped up filming his first starring film POPEYE,the breakthrough of his film career. I incorrectly mentioned in the review for the season 2 set that Mindy's(Pam Dawber) father Fred(Conrad Janis),a music store proprietor,had gone on the road to conduct for a symphony tour this season. Actually,Fred is back this season and still running the store. His mother or mother-in-law Cora(Elizabeth Kerr) returns to Boulder,Colorado also. Mork(Williams) and Mindy are still living together and are such great friends. New York Deli owner/operator Remo DaVinci(Jay Thomas) and his sister Jean(Gina Hecht) are still here also.

Please release the fourth and final season. Now that Robin Williams has passed, it would be a comfort to all that loved and admired him. Seeing his greatness over and over would help all of us trying to come to grips with his death. Looking forward to seeing the fourth and final season released.

5.0 out of 5 stars best series April 28, 2010
By Eric
I wish there were more TV shows like this now! It seems like all of the TV shows on today are about reality TV, murder, drugs, prostitution, and pretty much everything you can think of that is inappropriate. My children love this show. We found the first season at Cracker Barrel country store. I was too young to remember the show when it initially aired in 1978-1982. However, I will say it is the best TV series I have seen. You have to just take the show for what it is... What a genius Robin Williams is!

This season got them back a little closer to the first season magic, that ABC screwed up in season two. Mork was, well Mork this season. The magic wasn't all the way back, but most of the laughs were. I love having Fred and Grandma back this season (unfortunately, Elizabeth Kerr only guest stars I one episode; I'll take over not having her at all). They were most definitely part of the magic that made season one so great. I hope whoever's idea it was to get rid of them for season two got his or her butt fired.

Some of my favorite episodes are the premiere episode, Putting the Ork Back in Mork; Mork in Never-Never Land, featuring the great guest star David Spielberg; Mork Meets Robin Williams, where Robin Williams Guest Stars as himself! Also my favorite Old Muggable Mork, featuring Grandma's guest appearance.

There's more, but these are just some of my favorites from this season. I remember it like it was yesterday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Show from a Simplier Time January 6, 2008
I own season 1 and now season 3. I will be purchasing season 2 in the future.I found on DVD a full series seasons 1-4. I don't know as to what the quality is since season 4 has not been released

I do not really have a analytical analaysis of this delightful series, I can only give you my opinion of a show that brings back memories of a simplier time when there were shows that had meaningful messages of life and a somewhat innocence in nature.

Mork and Mindy is one of those shows. I believe its success primarily was about its innocence and brand of comedy for all audiences

Of cource the hilarious comedy Robin Williams and the chemisrty he had with Pam Dawber was easy to witness

I also noticed with this show I have not read in other reviews was its construction of I believe only 2 commercial breaks during its airing. I have a difficult time watching todays shows which I believe are constructed around the commercials.

Anyway Mork and Mindy is truly a delightful comedy series with just the right amount of adult entertainment while keeping light and innocent in nature the whole family can enjoy.

Mork & Mindy's Final Season
I hope it's released too. After all of the other seasons--it would be a shame to hold up the very end.

Plus, it would justify going back and redoing all releases into one substantive complete series compilation with better packaging and disc layout!
