WHAT MOVIE COULD YOU ACTUALLY STAND TO BE IN WITH ROBIN WILLIAMS?
So... what movie could you actually stand to be in with Robin Williams? This was the question posed this morning on the show. Shelley and I decided that anything we would be in would be because of the other people involved, like Popeye, because of Robert Altman, or The Fisher King, because you could hang out with Terry Gilliam and Jeff Bridges.
In a quest to find a better answer to the question, I went to IMDB to check out his resume. It was then that I discovered an entry for Mork and Mindy/Laverne and Shirley/The Fonz hour, an animated saturday morning cartoon I had never heard of. The first half was Mork and Mindy as teens, and the second was actually the second season of ANOTHER animated series I had never heard of, called Laverne and Shirley In The Army.
One youtube search later, and we have video proof that Laverne and Shirley In The Army existed. It was basically Private Benjamin, but with an anthropomorphic pig military officer (voiced by TVs Ron Palillo). How could you possibly go wrong?
