Mork and Mindy

Mork and Mindy was a half-hour sci-fi-based situation comedy broadcast from 1978 until 1982 on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) television network. The series starred Robin Williams as Mork, an alien who had come to Earth from the planet Ork, and Pam Dawber as Mindy, his human comedic foil. This was Robin Williams's first major acting break. Though the show was a spinoff of Happy Days, which was set in the 1950s, Mork and Mindy was set in 1970s Boulder, Colorado.

The comedian Jonathan Winters appeared in later episodes as the couple's infant son.
