"It is more than a machine...it is a robotoid,” said Robot B-9 about the robotoid in the Lost in Space episode “War of the Robots.” As in Forbidden Planet, Robby could replicate or repair items such as Maureen Robinson’s watch. Robby the Robot appeared in two Lost in Space episodes, in “War of the Robots,” where Will finds and repairs him, and in “Condemned of Space” as a guard equipped with a freezing gun aboard the prison ship. Robby the Robot was created by Robert Kinoshita at the MGM Prop Department in 1955 for the movie Forbidden Planet. Kinoshita also created the B9 Robot for Lost in Space. In “War of the Robots,” a Robotoid is described as being a robot with the additional faculty of independent decision making, regardless of programming.
