The voice of the "Lost In Space" robot, Dick Tufeld has passed away. He was 85. Died at home with family while watching the NFL playoffs.

Verum Serum posted on this here.

LA Times obit is here.

Me? I didn't much care for any of the Irwin Allen television shows but "Lost In Space" was the least offensive of the lot and I did think the robot was cool. I always liked the way that it caused Dr. Smith so much grief.
In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.

I loved "Lost in Space". That show took some very, very odd twists and turns. And rather like the classic Ginger vs Maryanne debate, I was always fond of Penny, even though Judy was supposed to be the blossoming young hottie.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson
