    This show was an ill-fated attempt by ABC to further cash in on spin-offs of Happy Days. At the time, both Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy were huge successes, so the idea was to use the Mork motif to create a one-off, other-worldly character (Random) on Happy Days, then spin him off as the center of a new show. Robin Williams even guest-starred as Mork in the pilot, but it still wasn't enough to get the show jump-started.
