Mork & Mindy: Mork, Mindy, and Mearth Meet MILT

February 18, 1982

This Kout & Zateslo story starts with a cameo by William Shatner and then has a computer voiced by John Houseman take over the household.  For some reason, the only thing I remembered from this episode was the Psycho reference.  (There's also a visual gag with Bedtime for Bonzo.)  Perhaps because he's been going to school for awhile, or perhaps because Mork has trained him, Mearth can now team up with Mork for finger-blasting.  The report to Orson is about technology of course, and somewhat poignant and/or dated almost 35 years later.  (MILT is much larger than any home computer of '82.)
