333. Robin Williams “Mork from Ork” signature space-suit costume designed by Robert Fuca for Mork and Mindy. (ABC-TV, 1978-1982) Heavy crimson stretch-wool ski-suit fabric with chain-link collar and cuffs, silver lamé patches, gloves, and boots, shoulder epaulets, and zipper and Velcro closures. Designed by Robert Fuca for Robin Williams in his iconic breakout role as “Mork” in Mork and Mindy. The only marking on interior waistband in black fabric pencil reads “1 OLD,” as this is believed to be the earliest suit worn by Williams in the series. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only hero “Mork” spacesuit costume to ever come up for public auction. Produced by Gary Marshall and written by some of the best comic minds in television, Mork and Mindy was not only a top-rated hit for the duration of its run, it established Robin Williams as a household name for his unique anarchic comedy. Acquired directly from Paramount after production end. Minor surface wear to lamé, most noticeable on front patch; else Fine, virtually as screen-worn.
