This show was an ill-fated attempt by ABC to further cash in on spin-offs of Happy Days (1974). At the time, both Laverne & Shirley (1976) and Mork & Mindy (1978) were huge successes, so the idea was to use the Mork motif to create a one-off, other-worldly character (Random) on Happy Days, then spin him off as the center of a new show. Robin Williams even guest-starred as Mork in the pilot, but it still wasn't enough to get the show jump-started. See more »
I can't honestly say that I remember the show's quality, except that Random was on Happy Days and Mork in turn was on Out of the Blue so I would appreciate any chance to look back at that material. I remember the theme song to a degree.
"Out of the blue, out of the blue, out- of- the- blue. Life is a reason, you're in the middle, the question is how to survive, but you keep on holding, keep on (something) out of the blue, out of the blue out- of- the- blue."
I mean, how bad could the mork episode be?
I think there is a huge market for "lost" or "failed" short-lived series. I mean they're not making any money for Paramound sitting in a vault.
It's too bad that (at the time of this posting) the photo for something else called "Out of the Blue" has no relation to this actual sit-com.
