Mork garbs himself in feathers as Orkan coward Squellman the Yellow for a costume event at the day care center. His young charges are happily attired as their favorite heroes, except for woebegone Billy, forced to emulate his doctor-father. Mork assures him that it's okay for him to dress as his hero, Billy the Kid. After Mindy explains to Mork that Billy's hero was really a killer, Mork tries to tell Billy that he was wrong, but the youngster decides he's a fraidy-cat and demands a shootout at the nearby ghost town where Exidor, the wild-eye prophet, is searching for his grandfather's strange buried treasure. Mork braves one of the zaniest shootouts ever when he faces a funny but formidable opponent in a ghost town saloon - a small boy armed with water balloons trying to emulate outlaw hero Billy the Kid.


  • Fred

    Good morning, everybody! I tell you, I've been working on your Jeep for over an hour and I can't find out what's wrong with it.

  • Mindy

    My battery's dead.

  • Fred


  • Mindy

    When I woke up this morning my battery was dead, I can't understand what happened.

  • Mork

    Could leaving the car lights on all night have any effect on that?

  • Mindy

    Why yes, it could. Why would you ask?

  • Mork

    No reason, no reason, no reason at all.

  • Mindy


  • Mork

    Oh, all right Mindy, there's a big reason, but a very good one, though...

  • Fred

    There's always a good reason.

  • Mork

    Oh, you understand, Pops, don't you?

  • Fred

    Yes, I do.

  • Mork

    Well... basically there was this cute little ol' wino outside, he was sleeping in the gutter and I left the lights on so no one would park on him.

  • Fred

    Kids today could use some heroes. When I was a young boy, I used to like the Western heroes - Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey and Tex Ritter. 'Course in those days you could always tell who the good guys were because they all wore big white hats and played guitars. I always used to wonder why they never rode into town playing a violin.

  • Mork

    That's probably because all the Indians had the bows. Ar ar!

  • Billy

    [sneaks into the saloon and throws a water balloon] A-HA! Gotcha, Mork! I win!

  • Mork

    Not so fast, Billy... mind over splatter! Viva la Squellman!
