The Elder performs the ritual of the sacred eggs
16 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Putting the Ork Back in Mork" concludes with the arrival of the Orkan Elder (Vidal I. Peterson), who appears to Mindy to look like a 10 year old boy, but reveals himself to actually be 86, as Orkans tend to age backwards (an element retained for the fourth season, Mork giving birth to Jonathan Winters' Mearth). The Elder has Mindy go away so he can work on Mork alone, drowning her sorrows alongside her father. Mr. Bickley (Tom Poston) drops in to complain about the noise, and sees Mindy dressed in red Orkan attire: "where'd you get your outfits, Frederick of Mars?" Allowed to observe Mork's restoration, Mindy meets Mork's Nagachomp Bebo, the number one pet on Ork, who delights in chasing her around the apartment, retained throughout this one season. The only way he can save Mork from being ostracized on Ork is to perform the ritual of the sacred eggs: "he's an eggs-orcist!" Mindy proves to be instrumental in saving both Mork and The Elder, who enjoys a hug from the 'soft wrapped one.' Though the ratings never reflected it, much of this third season rekindled the greatness of the first, though a few duds were still present (the less said about season four the better). Vidal I. Peterson would return as The Elder in one other episode, "Mindy, Mindy, Mindy."
