Roddy McDowall voices Robby the Robot
13 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Dr. Morkenstein" finds Mork now employed at a science exhibit, programming consciousness into their prize robot Chuck, with human emotions and the ability to play cards (voiced by Roddy McDowall). Chuck believes that emotions interfere with his computer banks, and laments that he'll soon be dismantled for 'metal fatigue.' Revealing the very human emotion of wanting to live, to sing and dance, has Mork willing to bring Chuck home to live with him. Mindy isn't too thrilled with the new house guest, but actually feels sorry for the robot when she learns about his plight. The New York Deli serves as the place for Chuck to perform among people, but starts to run down with insults and wrong answers, willing to die like a human. Robby the Robot was created for the 1956 MGM classic "Forbidden Planet" and its sequel "The Invisible Boy," and was a longtime veteran of many TV shows like THE TWILIGHT ZONE, LOST IN SPACE, and COLUMBO.
