Hold That Mork!

From reader Valerie comes this photo of Robin Williams as Mork, the newest Denver Broncos cheerleader.

This episode of Mork & Mindy aired in November 1979 in which Mork tried out for and made the Pony Express (Denver Broncos Cheerleaders).

Synopsis: While dejected Mork is confessing to Mindy that he has lost another job, eighty Pony Express cheerleaders drop in at Remo's deli. Impressed that the girls are paid to cheer up people, Mork asks for a job and they suggest that he apply at the Broncos' headquarters. A couple of the cheerleaders even coach him in their routines.

Upon returning from Denver, Mork reports that his application was filed in a wastebasket. Mindy's cousin, Nelson, takes up this case of sex discrimination as his election campaign platform, beginning by getting himself and Mork interviewed on television. Mork creates a high-altitude uproar when he joins the stunning women of the Denver Broncos' Pony Express as pro football's first male cheerleader and prances before 70,000 cheering fans in Denver's Mile High Stadium.
