People reports that the show will continue that tradition in the second half of Season 2, with an upcoming Ferris Bueller's Day Off episode that will guest star Charlie Sheen, paying homage to his role as "Boy in Police Station." The first photos have been released from this episode, set to air in early 2015, which shows Charlie Sheen interacting with Hayley Orrantia's Erica.

Much has been said since Robin Williams' death on Monday of his contribution to movies. Certainly, his performances in such films as "Aladdin," "Mrs. Doubtfire," and "Good Will Hunting" are likely to endear him to new fans among moviegoers for generations to come. But it's easy to forget that he also made indelible contributions to the world of TV throughout his four-decade career. Older viewers remember his starmaking turn as a lovable alien on "Mork and Mindy," but that was only one instance of many where he changed the medium in ways large and small that will continue to be felt for a long time to come.
