Greatest Movie/TV Robots?


Recommended Posts


The Robot from Lost In Space was kind of cool. He got a lot of air time with Will And Dr Smith, (maybe to much.)






I like Bender from Futurama, (which was just cancelled again by Comedy Central.)






I have a friend who is convinced most TV & Movie Robots are gay, (C3PO, The Lost In Space Robot, Etc...)

Those which I find noteworthy are:

The robot soldiers in Aelita: Queen of Mars (1924)

Olga in The Perfect Woman (1949)

Gort in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

Tobor in Tobor the Great (1954)

Robby in Forbidden Planet (1956) and The Invisible Boy (1957)

Elektro in Sex Kittens Go to College (1960)

R2D2 in Star Wars (1977)


I believe the best ones are:

Huey, Dewey and Louie in Silent Running (1972)

It is so sad when the one passes away.

I would count the two robots from Mystery Science Theater 3000. I would also count Gypsy, who stayed in the background, (and also had a huge crush on Richard Basehart.)






I would also count Vicki from the 80's syndicated sitcom Small Wonder, (she's fantastic, Made of plastic.) Some found out what happened to Tiffany Brisette, the girl who played Vicki. She was a office worker in Colorado.

The Cartoon Network, (also a Turner channel) used to show Gigantor at five in the morning. It was interesting to watch when I was half asleep.










Astro Boy was also interesting. It was about a father bringing back his dead son so it had a touch of sadness, especially for a kids cartoon.
