Meet Mork's Mom was a Mork and Mindy themed episode from the ABC-TV The Mork & Mindy/Laverne & Shirley/Fonz Hour animated series, also the 12th overall series episode.


When Mork gets in trouble at school, Mr. Caruthers demands a meeting with his parents. Orson complies and sends them to earth, but since Orkans age backwards, they appear younger than Mork. A wealthy, aged curmudgeon overhears their conversation in a restaurant and kidnaps the tykes, convinced they can help him find the fountain of youth.


  • This episode is inconsistent with the live-action series, in which Orkans didn't breed, they were created in a laboratory. Mork frequently mentioned that his mother was a beaker and his father was an eyedropper.
