Pam Dawber did not personally audition for the role of Mindy. To sell the show to the network, producer, Garry Marshall edited clips together of Dawber's performance from a failed ABC series of "Sister Terri," with existing footage of Robin Williams', two earlier guest-appearances as Mork on Happy Days (1974), of Happy Days: My Favorite Orkan (1978) & Happy Days: Mork Returns (1979).
