While it may not have been during their time on The Den, this will still be a special video for many Irish people.
Legendary actor, Robin Williams, met Zig and Zag back in the day and needless to say, it was epic.
This is such a great memory for us to have of such a talented actor who touched so many of our lives, in childhood and adulthood.
We are all still reeling from the shock of hearing the news of Robin Williams’ death here in SHEmazing!, so we thought we would celebrate the actor by recounting some of his best roles – there were plenty to choose from!
The genie in Aladdin
This was quite possibly our first introduction to the comedic genius – no wonder we were such big fans! His rendition of ‘Friend Like Me’ is one of our favourite Disney moments ever.
Who could forget this iconic film? No actor could have done a better job than Robin Williams – a firm childhood favourite.
Mork in Mike & Mindy
Williams played an alien sent from the planet Ork, who had come to observe human behaviour. This was the film that put Williams on the map as an actor, aswell as a comedian.
Dr. Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting
Robin played the role of a therapist helping a young boy to overcome his anger in this flick, and proved that he could do much more than make people laugh.
Alan Parrish in Jumanji
We’re still wary about playing old board games after watching Jumanji! We absolutely loved this when it came out in 1995.
Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams (63) was found dead in his California home yesterday morning after an apparent suicide.
A call was made to police at 11.55am local time, and emergency services arrived on the scene in five minutes. A statement from Marin County Sheriff’s Office confirmed:
“The male subject, pronounced dead at 12:02am, has been identified as Robin McLaurin Williams, a 63-year-old resident of unincorporated Tiburon.”
It is thought that Williams’ death was a suicide due to asphyxia, but an investigation has yet to be carried out.
The actor is said to have been struggling with severe depression.
His wife Susan Schneider said in a statement: “This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
Our thoughts go out to Robin’s family and friends at this awful time.

She was everyone’s favourite nanny.
And now, some 20 years after the film became a worldwide hit, a Mrs Doubtfire sequel is said to be on the way.
Robin Williams starred in the original as a divorced dad who disguised himself as the Scottish nanny to take care of his kids
The actor is reportedly ready to step into the role of Mrs Euphegenia Doubtfire again, with Chris Columbus set to direct.
Elf writer David Berenbaum has been tapped to the write the script.
The studio have apparently been trying to get a sequel off the ground since 2001 when Bonnie Hunt was signed up to write a script.
But despite a slew of rewrites, Robin, 62, and Chris, 55, weren’t happy with the story lines – until now!
