Ok, I’ve been in a totally retro mood lately…expect some Retro Reviews soon of things like Blake’s 7 and anything else I can get my hands on. But I’ve got a really obscure memory of something nobody may remember, and its time to see if my readers can save me…you did well the last couple times…
I don’t remember too much. All I can tell you is one of the characters was the B9 Robot from the original Lost in Space – except he was painted white instead of silver, and his bubble was cylindrical. It was most definitely the B9 Robot though, not Robby the Robot, who appeared in many shows. My guess is they pulled B9 out of some stored props.
I also remember that there was a guy and a girl, probably 20-somethings, who would travel with the robot by standing on his foot/pod/tractor, on each side, and hang on. They would do so through a jungle-type setting, which must have been tough for the people trying to move the robot… 🙂
It may have been a “segment” show – that is, a program shown in small segments as part of a larger program – think Banana Splits with the “Danger Island” segments (no, it wasn’t “Danger Island”), but a little more recent (1970s, perhaps). It was probably shown on Saturday mornings. I’ve tried to research it, but haven’t found anything.
