The transporter and phaser effects (visual and sound) were also used on the show.
Lyle Wagoner was the guest star when they used the transporter effect. When he did his final beam out, he actually said, "Beam me up, Scotty!"

Re: TOS Costumes on Mork & Mindy.....

Yes, Mork's red jumpsuit was Colonel Green's from TOS...yanked from Paramount storage after nine years or so and altered a little so it wouldn't look exactly the same. Remember, by 1978 TOS was a huge cult hit in reruns and the first movie was already under production so more than a few TV viewers would have recognized the old Green outfit from "Savage Curtain"...and probably did.

PATCH ADAMS will have a prequel. Where he, as a little kid, starts his own home-based pediatric health clinic but then time travelers interfere and he has to stop them.

Mork and Mindy could credibly have a prequel, because the Orkans age in reverse!

SHAZBOT!

What next? Laverne, the Fonz and Mr. Bickley all get trapped back in the Depression era and have to rig a radio and some vacuum tubes to get back home?

That is not part of my Mork and Mindy personal canon.

Speaking of Mork and Mindy, does anybody know anything about this tribble-like pet that Mork apparently had a couple episodes? My sister-in-law and her husband spent nearly an hour on Saturday trying to explain to me this bizarre fuzzy blob that kept chasing Mindy and trying to find YouTube videos that proved its existence, and I do not remember this at all, and bear in mind that I remember the existence of Mork From Ork Bubble Gum.

It seems to appear in the opening credits from the later episodes of the third season, eg ``Mork and Mindy meet Rick and Ruby'', just after Mork leaps out from the attic and as Jim Staahl's credit appears.

I mean, what the heck is it, and is it tribble-related?

you can see the tribble thing in this clip

I'm looking for the one where mork and johnathan winters beam back from Ork after a shopping trip and instead of bags they have a champagne bottle and some glasses...shatner beams in with bags in his hands, exchanges them for the champagne and says "beam me up orson"...winters wondesrs if shatner will get the girl, and mork responds "he can do anything he wants, he's the captain."

I think I remember from the original run a segment where when they send a "beam" for mork it mistakenly beams in shatner who is shaving and mork says "whoops, wrong beam."

they were pretty fast and loose with the trek jokes, helps to have the same parent company.

That was in the episode I actually caught in SciFi's Thanksgiving marathon. It was, I'm pretty sure, a season premiere, an hourlong story called "Putting the Ork Back in Mork." Mork had become too assimilated and lost his Orkan identity (and was even physically becoming human, somehow), and was in danger of being (confusingly enough) taken back to Ork and ostracized from Orkan society. So an "elder" was sent -- this was the episode that revealed Orkans age backward, so it was actually a preadolescent boy -- to teach Mork how to be Orkan again. As part of this, Mork's attic dwelling was remodelled with Orkan furniture, devices, etc., and among the reminders of home was his old pet, the big tribble-like thing (whose name I forget).

I think the furball's name was Beebo, but it's a wild guess at this point. Been too long since I've seen the show.
