RIP Robin Williams: Read TV Guide Magazine's October 1978 Profile Introducing America to His Genius

Robin Williams

I think we're all stunned and a bit devastated to hear the news about Robin Williams' death, particularly the sad circumstance behind his battle with depression. I dug through the TV Guide Magazine archives to find the first-ever profile we did on Williams -- a cover story from Oct. 28, 1978, following the premiere of "Mork & Mindy." It's an interesting early look at the man who would go on to entertain millions.
