Do you remember the TV show ‘Mork & Mindy’?

The sitcom was a spinoff of ‘Happy Days’ and gave actor Robin Williams his first onscreen job as the alien Mork.

In front of the Boulder house featured in the opening credits to the show,  at 1619 Pine Street, a spontaneous memorial sprung up in honor of the comedian and actor who died Monday, August 11, at the age of 63.

I was in high school when ‘Mork & Mindy’ premiered and remember telling my Spanish class at Central that I planned to take over the role of Mork when Robin Williams had moved on. The series ran on ABC-TV from 1978 to 1982.

Series creator Garry Marshall said of Williams, ‘he could make everybody happy but himself.’

Impromptu memorials sprang up all around the country after Williams death, in front of Caroline’s on Broadway comedy club in New York City, at the San Francisco home where ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ was filmed, at a bench in the Boston Public Gardens where a scene from the movie ‘Good Will Hunting’ was shot and at Robin Williams’ star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Robin Williams helped inspire me to become an entertainer and make people laugh, I’ll sure miss his energy and wit. Na-nu na-nu.

Here’s a clip from ‘Mork & Mindy’ including the opening sequence to bring back memories of a humble beginning.
