Dick Tufeld, R.I.P.

25 January 2012 1:35 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

It is with great sorrow that we report the death of announcer and voice actor Dick Tufeld, best known to a generation of genre fans as the voice of the Robot on the wonderfully campy '60s TV series Lost in Space. He was 85.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Tufeld, who suffered from heart disease and had been in failing health since sustaining a fall last year, passed away at home while watching the NFL playoffs on January 22.

Richard Norton Tufeld was born December 11, 1926, in Los Angeles, California. He began his career as the announcer for the ABC radio programs The Amazing Mr. Malone and Falstaff's Fables before landing a gig as announcer for the sci-fi radio serial Space Patrol in 1952.

Tufeld left radio for television news in October 1955, but then transitioned to a role as announcer for Disney TV series such as Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color and Zorro, »
