7 memorable moments in Robin Williams' prolific career

Robin Williams was one of the few actors who enthralled and amazed multiple generations.

He thrilled both kids and adults beginning with the TV series Mork and Mindy, and moving on to numerous movies including Good Morning Vietnam, ​Jumanji, Mrs Doubtfire, Hook. He even granted wishes as a genie on Aladdin.

He not only thrilled with his comedic range but won hearts with his dramatic talent by playing iconic roles like John Keating in The Dead Poet's Society and his Oscar-winning role in Good Will Hunting.

These movies do not even begin to encompass the entirety of Williams' prolific career.

Williams was found dead in his home on Aug 11 and police suspect suicide by asphyxia as the cause of death.

Here are just a few of Williams' best moments:

1) Who wouldn't want to wake up to Robin Williams' fast-talking Armed Forces DJ Adrian Cronauer in Good Morning Vietnam. Just watching him work the microphone was a delight but what was more impressive is that almost all of his radio broadcasts were completely ad-libbed. 

 

2) Who's responsible for the super-exciting game of Golf? Drunk Scottish men. I dare you to not think about Williams' hilarious routine every time you watch the game. 

 

3) O Captain! My Captain! One of Williams' most dramatic roles, he inspired countless others with his portrayal of English teacher John Keating.

 

4) Nanoo Nanoo! The character of Mork was so popular on sitcom Happy Days that he eventually earned his own 1978 sitcom, which skyrocketed him to fame. 

 

5) Ah, Mrs Doubtfire! 

 

6) If you had trouble believing just how good Williams is at improv, look no further than his appearance on Whose Line is it Anyway?

 

 

7) Who else needs a moral GPS? Robin Williams shows how it might be more useful than an actual GPS.

 

We will miss you, Robin WIlliams.

Thank you for all the laughter.

RIP.
