Putting on a show
13 October 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Looney Tunes and Morkie Melodies" is the episode where Mork finally gets a job working with children at the Pine Tree day care center, which lasted all through the entire third season. Still running for city council, Nelson Flavor (Jim Staahl) rejoices at 60 minutes airtime on a local station, though 7AM on a Saturday morning isn't great for a viewing audience over the age of 14. Mork comes up with the idea of shooting the hour live at the day care center, where the kids enjoy seeing him drink with his finger. Putting on a show gets Mindy thinking of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. Mr. Bickley tries out juggling, which he learned in the army using hand grenades: "that's how I got out!" Host Mork channels Fred Rogers: "thank you Mr. Piano Man, for tinkling on the keys!" Mr. Weasel sounds just like Peter Lorre: "there goes the neighborhood!" Mindy sings Peter Pan's theme song "I Won't Grow Up," Jeanie and Mork do a frog ballet to Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," Remo plugs the New York deli. Among the kids, Amy Tenowich would return for several third season episodes as Lola.
