A key part of Robin Williams' legacy was his early work on television, and this Friday, the Hub Network will be honoring that by airing what made it all possible.

The "Happy Days" episode "My Favorite Orkan" introduced Robin Williams as the alien Mork from Ork, and eventually led to the spinoff "Mork and Mindy," an odd-couple sitcom that lasted nearly 100 episodes and established Williams as a comedic powerhouse. 

"My Favorite Orkan" will air twice this Friday, August 15, at 9pm and 9:30pm ET, on the Hub Network.

The broadcast will also include an on-air tribute to Williams's work, as well as the alternate ending that made "Mork and Mindy" possible.
