Mork and Mindy Memorabilia

If you remember the late '70s at all you will remember that Mork and Mindy swag was EVERYWHERE! It was borderline creepy, there was so much stuff. Oddly, though, there's not a lot of advertising for it out there. I guess the stuff either sold itself or no one has bothered to save or upload what ads there were.

When I use stuff I find on other blogs, I try to give credit. Here's where I found these.

R.I.P. - Arlene Martel

Arlene Who?  Oh, you know her.  Probably not from this movie...

But if you're a fan of classic Twilight Zone and the episode "22", she could scare you to death.  The way she autographed this pic was particularly hilarious.

More likely you know her from Star Trek (Original Series), as Spock's betrothed, T'Pring.

I had the good fortune to meet her about 10 years ago at a convention and didn't realize she'd done both roles.  I may have gushed a lot a little, but we had a chat and I got her autograph.

Farewell!

Here's an amazing clip reel of her roles.Collapse )
