Mork & Mindy
Synopsis of Lunch Box
Robin Williams turned hyperactivity into a personality worth millions of dollars in the 1970's. As a stand-up comic, Williams toured the country in floral print shirts and rainbow suspenders, sweating like a madman in front of very happy audiences. But it wasn't until he played a guest spot on Happy Days as an alien named Mork that he became a nationally known figure. The guest spot was so popular that it was made into its own series. Mork and Mindy premiered in 1978 and ran for four seasons. The show, wildly popular with children, yielded a metal lunchbox with matching plastic thermos. American Thermos produced the box, which had photo reproductions of several well-liked scenes from the program.
