Mork & Mindy is a sitcom that aired on ABC. The show is a spinoff of Happy Days.

Mork arrives on Earth in an egg-shaped spacecraft. He has been assigned to observe human behavior, by Orson, his mostly unseen and long-suffering superior (voiced by Ralph James). Orson has sent Mork, in order to get him off Ork, where humor is not permitted. Attempting to fit in, Mork dresses in an Earth suit, but wears it backward. He encounters 21-year-old Mindy (Pam Dawber) who is upset after an argument with her boyfriend, and offers assistance. Because of his odd garb, she mistakes him for a priest and is taken in by his willingness to listen (in fact, simply observing her behavior). When Mindy notices his backward suit and unconventional behavior, she asks who he really is, and he innocently tells her the truth. She promises to keep his identity a secret and allows him to move into her attic. Mindy's father Fred (Conrad Janis) objects to his daughter living with a man (particularly one as bizarre as Mork), but Fred's mother-in-law Cora (Elizabeth Kerr) approves of Mork and the living arrangement. Mindy and Cora work at Fred's music store, where Cora gives lessons to Eugene Jeffrey Jacquet, a child who becomes Mork's friend.
