Posing as a high school teacher, Random lived in the Richard's home as rent-paying boarder and used his magical powers to teach the kids lessons on life. The kids, in turn, kept Random's real identify a secret from their aunt and Gladys the black housekeeper (Hannah Dan).

Random reported his progress to a heavenly supervisor named Boss Angel (Eileen Heckart).

TRIVIA NOTE: Mork of Ork (Robin Williams) is an old friend of Random the Angel. Apparently, the planet Ork is located near heaven. In a crossover from the series MORK & MINDY, Mork visits Random on the show's first episode "Random's Arrival."
