Jonathan Winters and Robin Williams
Before his death, Robin Williams was one of the funniest, most energetic people alive. As it turns out, there was one comedian that Robin absolutely adored. Jonathan Winters, who worked with Robin on Mork & Mindy, was a legend in Robin’s mind, so much so that Robin told everyone that Jonathan was his mentor.
“I turned to him,” Jonathan told PBS during an interview about his relationship with Robin. “I said one day, ‘Don’t say mentor anymore, I’ll tell you why. In Ohio, they think that’s a salve. Say idol, we all know that. See, mentor’s a little cutie stuff.’”
