Nick and Nora meet their most famous guest star of the series -- Forbidden Planet's Robbie the Roboi!
Based on the Dashiell Hammett characters, The Thion Man ran for two seasons on NBC from September 20, 1957 through August 28, 1959 for 72 episodes. Peter Lawford and Phyllis Kirk star. (Asta was played by three different wirehair terriers.) Also featured are Barry Atwater, Robert Cornthwaite, Lillian Bronson, and George Cisar. Directed by Oscar Rudolph from a script by Devery Freeman.
Robbie the Robot has his (its?) own listing on IMDb with 29 credits, from his (its?) debut in 1956's The Forbidden Planet to an "uncredited role" in The Big Bang Theory in 2014. Not a bad career for a hunk of tin. Robby was first designed by Robert Kinoshita, and cost $125,000 to build in 1955.
Definitely Its. Unlike, say, the Ro-Man, aka the Diving Gorilla.ReplyDelete
