Danny St. Tommy
The White-Suited Man
Mindy gives Mork Earth medicine for his cold. Mork has already taken the time-release capsule to shrink his nasal membranes when he remembers that, as an Orkan, he is all membrane. Mindy watches helplessly as he shrinks out of sight between the molecules of a tablecloth, sending him to an upside-down planet called Mirth where humor has been banished. In Mirth, Mork borrows clothing from a lavender cow before he is captured by three comics: Bob Faith, Jerry Looney and Danny St. Tommy. The three belong to a zany bunch of revolutionaries called the Sillies who are trying to overthrow King Exidon and his Glums. Mork is taken to the Sillies camp where he meets their leader, Mandy, who looks just like Mindy. To aid her cause, Mork becomes a glum version of a court jester -- a Court Serious -- to spy in Exidon's castle. When Mandy is captured, Mork and the three comics fly to the rescue in a hot air balloon and battle the king's troops with pie and seltzer before the effects of the medication wear off and Mork returns to normal size back in Boulder with Mindy.
Oh, Mork, you're really catching a cold! Come here, I wanna give you something. Here, take one of these.
What is it?
It's a cold capsule. It'll help shrink your nasal membranes and clear your head.
Mork! Don't put it in your ear. Try swallowing it.
Swallow it? That's the wrong way, I've got a head cold.
Weeelll, OK, but I'm warning you, if I swallow this there's a darned good chance you'll never see it again!
