Robin Williams Was Never Told 'Mork & Mindy' Was Canceled
The funnyman landed his big break in the late 1970s playing the alien Mork in the sitcom opposite actress Pam Dawber.
Bosses at U.S. TV network ABC, which aired the series, canceled the program in 1982 - but no one told Williams, and he was devastated when he read about his show's demise in trade paper Daily Variety.
He tells People magazine, "I found out the show was canceled by reading it in Variety. In Hollywood that's like reading your own obituary: 'You're dead, good luck!'"
