I recently heard an odd bit of urban legend from one of my co-workers.
Comment: We've been trying in vien to find anything about it on line. Maybe you can
help out.

The legend is that when Morky & Mindy was in production there was a lot of
hub-bub from the censory board. So much so that the network brought in
Yiddish speaking censors/interpretors to make sure that Robin Williams was
keeping it clean. Any idea if there's an ounce of truth in that one?

I recall something about people in a huff about the gibberish Williams was speaking, but I don't recall if it was alleged Yiddish or anything else. Sorry.

During Robin William's appearance on Inside The Actor's Studio, he brings up the fact that they had to hire a censor who spoke Yiddish, whom he described as a little Filipino lady.
