I was ten years old when I first saw Robin Williams. He made his first appearance as Mork on an episode of Happy Days in February of 1978, and the next day it was all anyone at school could talk about. As late as last year, my DVR was still recording episodes of Mork & Mindy off of the HUB network. I watched Awakenings just last week, and I commented to my wife that Robin acted circles around Robert DeNiro in that movie.

I’m going to go dig around in my closet now and find my Mork & Mindy iron-on ringer t-shirt. I might just wear it for the rest of the week.
