Bob May - B9 Robot Tribute
We are a couple of days late on this one, but we wanted to pay homage to one of our fave robotic actors. Bob May was the man behind the B9 robot in the TV Show "Lost in Space." Although he didn't provide the voice (that was Dick Tufeld,) he nonetheless developed a wide fan base. Because the suit was difficult to get in and out of, he would stay in it all day, even for a smoke. That must have been most amusing to the cast. For May, the danger is over, Will Robinson. He left us Jan. 18 of congestive heart failure. He was 69.
