I've always been a huge Mork & Mindy fan. Yes, I wore the familiar rainbow suspenders in the 5th grade. The suspenders had buttons on them--a button of a pointing finger and a button with a crescent moon and stars. Remember?

Mork & Mindy: "Mork's First Christmas" (1978)
by Joanna Wilson
Having never experienced Christmas before, Mork hilariously misunderstands Earth’s holiday traditions from the door-to-door carolers to the fat men in red suits standing on every street corner.
|Mork questions his friend Eugene about the Christmas tradition of a dead tree.|
|Susan (Morgan Fairchild) has a way of inviting herself over for Christmas.|
Not wanting to send the wrong message, Mindy finally agrees to having Susan over for the holiday--even if she makes everyone else feel miserable. Mork then sets off on the next Christmas tradition: buying gifts for his friends.
|The Orkan is not prepared for crowded holiday shopping and angry shoppers.|
|Grandma doesn't really appreciate her new sculpture of Liberacé made from chewing gum!?|
|Since it's the thought that counts, Mork literally gives them good thoughts for Christmas|
Mindy is given the emotional experience from her past when her runaway puppy had returned home. Grandma is able to re-live the memory of her first Christmas with her now-deceased husband, and Mindy's father remembers the love he felt when he held his baby daughter in his arms for the first time. This episode's story will take your from laughter to tears in a matter of moments. Merry SCI-FI Christmas in July!
|The McConnell family thanks Mork for his thoughtful Christmas gifts.|
