    If he spoke in a deeper voice and there was no canned laughter this would be so much better

  2. MrsLukesotherlaura says:

    @aculturemind No, she didn’t take the keys.

  3. OmniTriforce says:

    @Wyzzkyd Robin Williams is sure funny

  4. acrovader says:

    Even after this show, Robin Williams seems to be playing the same character. He’s easily one of the most unfunny, over-rated “comedians” around.

    star trek was long before mork and mindy.

    @7:35 That’s where Star Trek got the idea for that “Live long & Prosper” Vulcan salute LOL.

    @snowflake1910 Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?

  10. liongirlfc says:

    @cbsteffen she did.

  11. aculturemind says:

    Didn’t she, uh, take the keys from him?

    Even as a kid, I didn’t think this was very funny. His adult stuff, though – The Survivors, The World According to Garp, Death to Smoochy – class.

  12. Wyzzkyd says:

    Holy crap attempted rape in a sitcom pilot?The 70s were the shit.

  13. bookwormx221 says:

    Respond to this video… Seven people have no sense of humor at all

  14. bookwormx221 says:

    @beatlephan1982 Yes, he was adorable

  15. hippypeace says:

    @beatlephan1982 Hot is an understatement. I wish he looked like this today and pose for playgirl.

  16. hippypeace says:

    Maaaaan he was hot!!! Every season when the show ( M&M) would show its opening theme with excerpt clips from that new season, how could they show scenes from episodes that hadn’t even aired yet? Another question, what episode was it when m&m are standing on the touchdown pole and running/walking in the grass?

  17. AirSoftDealerNy says:

    damm Robin looks like Screech from Saved By The Bell

  18. oifocker says:

    I remember this as a kid! Awesome!!!

  19. steveshydroponics says:

    Man oh man…I sure miss the 70s. Good times and great memories.

  20. blackmii says:

    @beatlephan1982 i think for his age he still looks good :D

  21. longfootbuddy says:

    it would be ridiculous to let your date drive your car if you were a woman like mindy

  22. Tina85ok says:

    The first season was the best of the whole series!

  23. bokeywilliams says:

  24. julie11061 says:
