Mork's Orkan Greeting - The
situation comedy MORK AND MINDY/ABC/1978-82 featured a zany alien
called Mork (Robin Williams) from the planet Ork who lived with
earthling Mindy McConnell (Pam Dawber) in Boulder, Colorado.
In a parody of the
Vulcan greeting from the sci-fi drama STAR
TREK/NBC/1966-69, Mork placed his palm straight out in a regular
handshake position and then did a scissors motions separating his
middle and ring fingers followed by the greeting "Na-Nu, Na-Nu".
When he reported into his galactic supervisor back on Ork he
said, "Mork calling Orson. Come in Orson...Yoo-hoo! Come in Hippo
Hips!" See also "Orson from Ork"
