Mork & Mindy: Pam Dawber and Robin Williams ReuniteBy: Pam Wright - January 25, 2014
Na-Nu, Na-Nu! Welcome back Mork and Mindy!
“It will be a joy to work with her again,” Williams said. “It’s a dream come true.”
Mork and Mindy was a hit Television show that made Robin Williams, 62, a house-hold name in America. It was on this show that the world first experienced the comedic versatility of the actor who would go on to become one of the most talented comedians of his generation.
The show aired from 1978-1982, and followed the antics of an alien, played by Williams, named Mork from a planet called Ork…. yep, Mork from Ork. Mork landed on Earth in his egg-shaped spaceship and met Mindy McConnell, played by Dawber, who helped the alien navigate this foreign planet.
Fans finally got their wish when Mork and Mindy eventually married on the show.
Williams tweeted his excitement at the reunion Friday:
Williams plays Simon Roberts on the The Crazy Ones, co-starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Wolk. His character is not surprisingly an eccentric head of an ad agency. In the episode scheduled to air in the spring, Dawber will play an author who meets Williams’ character at a book signing, and the chemistry is back.
Sara Michelle Gellar also tweeted about the reunion.
The last time Dawber, 62, appeared on television was in the 1999 movie Don’t Look Behind You. She has been married to NCIS star Mark Harmon for 26 years.
The Crazy Ones airs Thursdays at 9/8c.
