* {{Troll}}: ''Oh hell yes''. From messing around with the cameramen on the set of Johnny Carson's ''Tonight Show'', to buying Creastor/ConanOBrien a bicycle, ''bright green and orange with shamrocks on it'', just so Conan would look silly riding it. There are legends that speak of his time on ''Series/MorkAndMindy'', of goading costar Pam Dawber into {{Corpsing}} and, [[TropeMaker of course,]] GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

* Robin popularized the InkSuitActor trope with ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', so when ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' had to suffer through a remake of ''Pinocchio'' with an AllStarCast of such, it was only natural that he be spoofed with the "Beige Fairy". Said Fairy is the Genie in all but name and color, GettingCrapPastTheRadar in the name of ParentalBonus.
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'':
** In "Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian", in a rather dated reference, [[Film/{{Hook}} Robin as]] PeterPan is seen flying around outside Amblin studios. He says "I can fly. Look ma, no wires!" before crashing into something offscreen.
** A short in "Henny Youngman Day" had Babs going to a local club's Open Mic Night to try to spark a career in RecordedAndStandUpComedy, only to find out that [[LawyerFriendlyCameo the in-world version]] of Robin Williams had stopped in for a surprise engagement. Babs choked out on stage until Robin (who had been told he was the final perfomer of the night) comes back out to give her an assist. Doubly touching, since it was the kind of thing Robin himself would have actually done in that situation.
** Robin (the "real" Robin) had a cameo at the very end of "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/hollywood/misfit18.html It's A Wonderful Tiny Toons Christmas Special]]"...still dressed as Peter Pan.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** The episode "Special Edna" had a brief scene parodying ''DeadPoetsSociety'' with a John Keating lookalike appropriately voiced by Dan Castellaneta, [[ThePoorMansSubstitute who replaced Robin as The Genie]] in ''Return of Jafar'' and the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' TV series.
** The episode "Mypods and Boomsticks" featured [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} The Genie]] in Homer's dream sequence (voiced by Dan but obviously a caricature of Robin's version). This was mainly a ShoutOut to ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar,'' in which Dan Castellaneta took over the role of the Genie when Williams refused to sign on due to contract violations on Disney's part.
** In one of the comics, the family has just gotten a new satellite dish and is channel surfing with Bart. They come across a show called ''Celebrity Alien Autopsies'' and features, you guessed it, Mork on the autopsy table, wisecracking as usual.
** In one episode, a hole in the ozone layer forces everyone in Springfield to stay indoors. Kent Brockman reports that the only people who're safe enough to go outside without risk of being harmed are extremely hairy people, bringing up Williams as an example.
* ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'': Xandir's genie boyfriend is an obvious parody.
--> "[[LargeHam Hey-hey-hey!]] [[MarxBrothers I'm Groucho Marx!]] [[Series/YouBetYourLife What's the secret word?]] [[{{Popeye}} Now I'm a wacky sailor!]] [[Film/MrsDoubtfire Now I'm a cross-dressing nanny.]] [[PatchAdams And now I'm a wacky doctor who kills cancer with laughter and a big red nose!]] {{Jumanji}}! [[Series/MorkAndMindy Nanu nanu!]]"
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' often mocked him.
** Pre-renewal, "Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story" had a man in the future gets an episode of ''Series/MorkAndMindy'' beamed into his brain, and laughs like a moron.
---> "Ha ha ha! Oh, Mork, that's not how you sit in a chair."
** Not a portrayal, but the episode "Petergeist", the first thing Peter does with the dead Native American skull is use it as a puppet, saying thusly:
---> "Hey, check it out, Chris, it's Robin Williams. 'BlahBlahBlah, black preacher voice. Blah blah blah, gay [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Elmer Fudd]]."
** "[=McStroke=]" showed Peter as Robin's "Jumping off point".
** In "Baby Not On Board", a cutaway shows Robin as Patch Adams, doing his routine. One of the kids in the hospital pulls his IV out to kill himself.
** Stewie outright says he hates Robin Williams in "The Juice Is Loose".
*** As fate would have it, that episode aired as previously scheduled on TBS the night Robin died.
** "You knew it was going to be a touching comedy, because Robin Williams had a beard." - Brian in "Love, Blactually"
** In "Brian's Got A Brand New Bag", ''Film/WhatDreamsMayCome'' is one of the [=DVDs=] that no one wants to buy.
** In "Family Guy Viewer Mail 2", Peter gains the ability to turn everything and everyone he touches into Robin Williams. HilarityEnsues.
** It is worth noting that in spite of all the parodies and digs at him, [[https://twitter.com/SethMacFarlane/status/499063991617212416 Seth MacFarlane did join in the mourning]].



* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' has had two sketches with Mork in them. The first is a brief appearance during "[[http://www.milkandcookies.com/link/48339/detail/ Swedish Chef's Jaunt]]" (cute), and the second is in "[[http://robotchicken.wikia.com/wiki/Top_100_Final_Episodes_Ever The Top 100 Final Episodes Ever]]".
* An episode of ''TimAndEricAwesomeShowGreatJob!'' had Eric giving Tim his own Robin Williams (played by professional Robin impersonator David Born), who goes out of control and runs away.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** Episode "Bendin' In The Wind'' featured robot Patchcord Adams. Bender wanted to kick his ass.
** The movie ''Bender's Game'' featured a scene where Mork from Ork is referenced with [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs as Mork]]. Then the party kills them while telling them to shut up. It doesn't work.
* Frank Caliendo has a very brief Robin Williams impression that he's been known to do. It goes something like "Joke not working, just switch voices." He even did a whole routine where Williams is in a remake of ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' starring him (in ''all'' the roles) and directed by Creator/QuentinTarantino.

* The first episode of ''Bob & Doug'' (the animated series about [[Series/{{SCTV}} The McKenzie Brothers]]) had yet another spoof of [[Film/DeadPoetsSociety John Keating]], who does the typical shtick before two police officers show up to take him back to "the home".

* When the orcs attack Balin's Tomb in ''Film/TheFellowshipOfTheRing'', the Podcast/RiffTrax claims that they're actually something worse-"Morks! Hundreds of Robin Williamses!"-and goes into a brief impression.

His hobbies included bike riding, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', GettingCrapPastTheRadar in television shows and family movies, and [[LampshadeHanging hanging a lampshade]] on just about everything in RealLife. Fan of the San Francisco Giants. [[IconicOutfit Known to wear suspenders and loud Hawaiian shirts]], but rarely both at the same time, [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v482/80sFreakLurker/Others/833a.jpg although it did happen.]]

He was also OneOfUs. His daughter's name is Zelda (and guess what: they made an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bINUfbLV_0M&feature=player_embedded ad]] out of it for the Nintendo3DS remake of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''). His favorite TV show of all time was ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. He played ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. He'd also gone on record saying that if they ever make a LiveActionAdaptation of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', he wanted to play [[TheProfessor Professor]] [[CoolOldGuy Oak]]. Had mentioned playing a sniper in the ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield}}'' series of {{FPS}} and was picked to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5TXEUiR1Xk demo]] ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}''.



Williams was an Episcopalian, and was apparently the original author of a tongue-in-cheek list of [[http://www.liturgy.co.nz/humour/list.html "Top Ten Reasons to be Episcopalian/Anglican".]]

Tragically, he [[http://time.com/3104190/robin-williams-suicide-hanging/ committed suicide]] at the age of 63 on August 11, 2014, after [[https://twitter.com/daniellenuss/status/498964859686764544 having battled severe depression]], finding out he was in [[http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-robin-williams-wife-parkinsons-20140814-story.html the early stages of Parkinson's disease]], and also trying to "fine-tune" his sobriety after working a later and more intense schedule than normal. [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/jaimieetkin/hollywood-remembers-robin-williams Tributes to his memory poured in from all across the world]]. It was later discovered that Williams was in the early stages of Lewy body dementia, a particularly vicious form of dementia (essentially Super-Parkinson's) with extremely distressing symptoms and a poor prognosis (Seriously, read about it. It's basically NightmareFuel UpToEleven. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dementia_with_Lewy_bodies]]). His widow went on to speak publicly about it, and was convinced that he did ''not'' "lose" his years-long fight with depression, but that he committed suicide due to the unrelated dementia/depression and mood swings from the physical illness ravaging his brain tissue. His widow also said that, according to his doctors' prognosis and the low life expectancy after diagnosis with the disease, even if Robin hadn't killed himself, he would have lived only another three years ''at most''.

* PlayingWithCharacterType: ''Film/OneHourPhoto'' subverted his cheery, friendly persona to disturbing effect.



* ThrowItIn: Known for fighting with directors over how far he can vary from the script. Often it came down to "One good take done straight, then you can have fun."
* TomHanksSyndrome: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] -- he showed in later years that he could definitely carry serious drama, but comedy was still what he was most famous for, and he still did comedy flicks regularly up until he died. Even his posthumous releases are a mixture of comedy roles and dramas.

* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: Several of the movies and television shows he was cast in had scripts that said stuff like "Robin can go off here" at numerous intervals. In particular, ''Aladdin'' had numerous outtakes of extra footage where the animators let him ramble on unscripted so they could later cull the best bits to animate for the film.
* HeAlsoDid: Everybody knows of his comedic and dramatic skills, but he also can sing and his first recorded stand up event in San Fran ends in a song; he also sang in ''Aladdin''.
* HeyItsThatGuy: He guest starred on a particularly memorable episode of ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway''



* OneOfUs: The presence of a ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' action figure in ''Film/OneHourPhoto'' was his idea. He was an avid anime fan. His daughter is named Zelda, after the [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Nintendo Princess]]. He also once joked that he could barely use a computer but he figured out how to play video games.



* PromotedFanboy: Williams was a fan of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' video games and even [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous named his oldest daughter Zelda]]. He and his daughter were both later given the opportunity to star in the commercials for ''Ocarina of Time 3DS'' and ''Skyward Sword'' for Western releases, and Zelda herself was invited to the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' Invitational Tournament at E3 in 2014. Creator/{{Nintendo}} had also told him he would be their only choice to play Professor Oak if a live-action ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' movie were ever made.
** He was also a humongous fan of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', in particular the work of Creator/ChuckJones. Not only did he present Jones with his honorary Academy Award in 1996, he had him direct an animated introduction for ''Film/MrsDoubtfire.''



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** He was reported to have auditioned for the role of Gendo Ikari in the ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movies.
** Rumored to have been the first choice to play BiggerBad Lorenz Keele in the [[DevelopmentHell eternally delayed]] LiveActionAdaptation of ''Rebuild of Evangelion''.
** He was in line to play the [[StarfishAliens Vortigaunts]] in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2''.
** He had expressed interest in playing the Riddler in ''Film/BatmanForever'' and was a fan favorite to do so, until Joel Schumacher took over the project and reworked the concept.
*** He did later play a very Riddler-inspired character when he guest-starred on ''Law and Order: SVU''.
** He was supposed to play "Dr." Berlinghoff Rasmussen in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "A Matter of Time", but he was busy working on ''Film/{{Hook}}'' at the time.
** There were plans to do an actual ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'' sequel before his death nixed it.
** Before Creator/JKRowling insisted on a completely British cast, Williams was considered for the role of Rubeus Hagrid in ''Film/HarryPotter''.
