First look at Fred and Cora's home
19 October 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Mork Goes Public" opens with Fred saving Mork's life, who in gratitude follows him everywhere until he drives him crazy. Meanwhile, Boulder Evening Sun copy boy Clint Mullet (Jeff Altman) has been investigating nearby UFO sightings in search of a sensational story, and a reward of $25,000. When Mork overhears Mindy and Fred discussing how they could handle such a large amount of cash, he also learns that they won't turn him in. Believing that they need it badly he phones Clint and plans to reveal all to the newshound. He's hardly ready to buy into Mork's bag of tricks when Mindy and Fred both barge in, also claiming to be assigned to study life on earth. The thoroughly unconvinced Clint proudly strides out, refusing to be made a fool of (Mork: "too late!"). This was the first episode to show us where Fred lives with Cora, and another brief appearance from Jeffrey Jacquet's Eugene. Jeff Altman's stand up career almost didn't survive his six week stint as co-host of 1980's infamous NBC variety series PINK LADY, which at least boasted two cute Japanese singers in gorgeous bikinis, usually in a hot tub!
