Art History in “Mork and Mindy”

I didn’t think I would make a Robin Williams-related blog entry, but things happen.  So, out of a desire to view some contributions left by the man, I decided to re-watch episodes from the sitcom that put him on the map.  Little did I know that I would see something that would inspire me to write this post.

What inspired you, you wonder? Mork Goes Public.

Around 8:30, look behind Mr. McConnell, for he has a page originating from an antiphonary.  When I looked up “illuminated manuscripts music” on Bing, the term came up, and I used it to find the links highlighted.  Kudos to the set designer for adding depth to Mr. McConnell’s classically inclined tastes in music.
