Princess Riva - Myposian sleep fairy mentioned on
the sitcom PERFECT STRANGERS/ABC/1986-92.
Princess Riva was the Myposian equivalent of the Sandman. Each night when the
residents of the Mediterranean island of Mypos closed their eyes, Princess Riva
would hold all the people safely in her arms until morning.
We learn about this somnambulant spirit when Myposian immigrant, Balki
Bartokomous (Bronson Pinchot) experienced insomnia while living in Chicago with
his American cousin, Larry Appleton (Mark Linn-Baker).
