Whatever you’re up to this weekend, make sure you always make your bed and try food before your add salt.
|We’re sooo excited to have our latest designs in! From such a classic show too!
Inspired by the huuuge hit, Mork and Mindy was an American sci-fi sitcom that was broadcast back in 1978, right up until 1982 on their popular channel ABC.
|Now, we’re sure that this show could be a few years before your time. It certainly finished before many of us TruffleShuffler’s had landed on earth in our own little eggs! So here’s a little rundown…
The show tells the tale of the space alien from the planet Ork named Mork, played by screen legend Robin Williams, who (crash) lands his egg-shaped ship into planet earth after he is sent to study humans. He quickly meets Mindy, a sweet 21-year-old played by Pam Dawber who having just been abandoned by her boyfriend, needed to be chaperoned back to town. She decided to help Mork to adjust to life on Earth and they become great friends despite Mork usually frustrating her.
At the end of each episode, Mork reports back to Orson (his long-suffering superior) on what he has learned about Earth. These end-of-show summaries really are the peak of the shows humour and generally involve making fun of the things we all do.
|As Robin Williams first major acting role and one that certainly launched him into the start of his fame and success, this retro icon gave us the chance to see the comedic and improvisational genius that he was which is why we just had to snap up some official Mork And Mindy T-Shirts so we can help spread the love for this great show and the legend behind it. Take a look….|
|Show some love for this classic show and of course the sadly missed comedy legend Robin Williams with one of these designs in both ladies or men’s styles.
What are your memories of this hit show? Not seen it? Get hunting and give it a watch folks!
|That’s right folks!
The Hunger Games, American Hustle and upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse star Jennifer Lawrence has been spotted in California rocking her very own exclusive TruffleShuffle T-Shirt with one of our Roald Dahl Good Thoughts Speckled Rolled Sleeve T-Shirts!
I get nostalgic pretty much every day working at the Truffle HQ, but can’t help but go a little weak at the knees when new Care Bears merchandise comes in.
I collected the cards, had the cuddly toys, watched the cartoon, had the pencil case, all of it! If they there was tinned spaghetti in the shape of Care Bears (which I expect there most probably was), I’m sure I would have had that too!
So this month’s look is centered around our super cute new vintage print Care Bears t shirt on the popular and uber flattering rolled sleeve boyfriend tee (which has proved a massive hit with you)! I am also loving the current trend for midi skirts (no embarrassing moments on blustery days – phew!) and simply teaming with some classic Converse All Star high tops, you simply can’t go wrong!
And to when you are unwinding after all that shopping, why not take your tea in this super cute Retro Care Bears Mug! Ahhhh…
