Dick Tufeld, who many will remember as the booming voice behind the Rambler-Crane series B9 Robot in the original Lost in Space series and the 1998 movie, passed away yesterday at the age of 86.
Tufeld’s voice wasn’t only heard by Lost in Space fans – he started in radio in 1950 for the American Broadcast Company and an announcer, and went on to become a familar narrator and voice actor as well, often providing voice over talents on many programs for Disney and other studios and networks, and even doing TV news for a time.
Bill Mumy, who along with Jonathan Harris played against the Robot frequently, said on Facebook, Dick Tufeld was a really cool guy. He’s reunited with his wife Adrian now. R.I.P. Dick. You will be missed bigtime..
One last, “Danger, Will Robinson…”
