Cora Hudson: Now tell me, what's the poop around here?
Mork: Oh, let's scoop! We'll dish 'til dawn. First of all, Mindy got a job, I got a job, Carter lost a job - awwww! I wondered why peanut butter was getting so expensive. And uh, Brooke Shields turned 40 on her 15th birthday, coleslaw's hard to reheat, and also, they put Walter Cronkite out to stud. Watch out, Grandma!

The return of Elizabeth Kerr as Grandma Cora
19 October 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Old Muggable Mork" marked the long awaited return of Elizabeth Kerr as Grandma Cora Hudson, not seen since the first season, with only seven more appearances through the series end. Cora makes the trip from Boston to see Fred and Mindy on a 3 day visit, but on the second day is late getting home because she was mugged in the park in broad daylight. Mindy is outraged that the police are unable to promise much, and delivers a stirring editorial for KTNS that raises Mork's ire to fever pitch. A chance remark from a frightened Cora gives him the impetus to get back at the three muggers, accompanying Cora for another stroll through the park, dressed as an elderly lady similar to 'Mrs. Doubtfire.' The intention is simple and clear, and when the same trio respond to easy targets Mork puts his plan into action, all three transformed by an Orkan time warp so that their bodies look the same, only they all feel like old men inside, barely able to stand on their own. Cora delights in granting them their wish and giving them her purse, as hard as possible (Mork: "industrial strength!"). Her pride happily restored, Cora is now off to Las Vegas for more fun, the Orkan magic working again like it did the first season. Like most of this third season the spark was back in the show, though ratings never improved.
