^^I think you're right. The name Beebo sounds familiar.

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

I remember a Beebo being mentioned, but I wasn't a regular viewer for a couple of seasons then (pre-home-video-explosion and school and all) but I wondered who or what it was in reference to.

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

Around the exact same time MORK was on the air, actor Phillip Pine(Green on TOS)was on the solo spinoff of SANFORD & SON in an episode about Fred being called for jury duty. But by then Pine's hair was almost totally grey and he would have looked radically different in his old Colonel Green jumpsuit.

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

For some reason, this thread just reminded me, "Quark" is coming out on DVD soon!

Correction: It's already out! And cheap, too!!

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

I remember reading about "Quark" in a TV compendium of all existing network shows between 1946 and the beginning of the 90s. One of the flashy flops of the late 70s like "Hot L Baltimore" or "Supertrain" that never caught on but had some seriously interesting writing.

I'll give you the writing on Hot L Baltimore, but Supertrain?? Really?? Love Boat on a Train??? I guess it is all about how you define "interesting writing."

That's how the book's writers described the show. A flashy bomb with some interesting plot ideas that were never developed.

Does anyone have any pics of the costumes appearing in Mork and Mindy? Or a link to a clip?

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

I thought I was the only one that remembered Quark. I couldn't believe it wasn't a smash hit. Now that I am older, I realize that the appeal was mainly to nerds like me. If I recall correctly, they put the Landers sisters in the show in skimpy outfits in order to draw more viewers. That was so many years ago, and I was so young, that I am having trouble remembering. I do remember that it was hilarious and that it had a lot of Trek parody.

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

I can still remember that Sally Struthers ALL IN THE FAMILY spinoff where she became a veterninarian. GLORIA. My family watched that the short time it was on.

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

It had Sally Struthers in skirts and low-cut dresses working on sick animals.

So...BETTER than AfterM*A*S*H.
