Egg-Shaped Spacecraft - MORK & MINDY (1978 - 1982) / ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK (1981)

An egg-shaped spacecraft used in connection with the landmark comedy sci-fi television series Mork & Mindy. The fiberglass spacecraft has a top hatch that opens up with large gray vinyl seats and a gray vinyl padded interior. The hatch has a screwed-in metal hinge closure, and the spacecraft travels on a custom-made rolling dolly.

The spacecraft was carefully restored in the 2000s by Disney artist Chris Koon. Thereafter, it was stored in a light, climate and humidity-controlled fine art warehouse. As a result, it presents in excellent production-used, vintage condition overall. The egg was originally built for John Carpenter’s dystopian motion picture Escape from New York, and rescuing the President of the United States from this escape pod egg was central to the storyline. Soon after, the spacecraft was re-used to promote season four of Mork & Mindy, as the two lead characters marry and expect a child.
