Bob May, R.I.P.

Yet another death in the world of Pop Culture. Bob May, the actor best known for his portrayal of the Robot on Lost in Space, died yesterday at the age of 69. May had a long career as a stunt man and actor in movies and television, but "Danger Will Robinson!" will always be his most famous line.

Here's a short, clip from the 1990's featuring May and his Lost in Space co-star Billy Mumy that includes some on the set home movies of May getting into his Robot suit.

BTW - I learned of Bob May's death through an email from my wife. She also reminded me that she is now up two to one in our morbid, but not as uncommon as one might think, game of "Spot the Dead Celebrity".


  1. Really - - - We are all just glad that you have stopped your obsession with Scott Baio and moved on...

  2. Scott Baio? You know damn well that Willie Ames was my favorite on "Charles in Charge"; I've been a fan since his "Eight Is Enough" days.

  3. Ahh yes - - the details of the restraining order are all coming back to me now ...
