Definitely from his younger days, but fun nonetheless.

It's hard to remember how many things I've seen him in, movies & TV. As the son of Mork & Mindy was memorable for me.

He was one of the few guests on the Johnny Carson version of Th e Tonight Show, who could consistently get Carson to lose it just about every time. Like Robin Williams but less manic
