In Memorium: Dick Tufeld

“Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!”

You probably don't recognize the face, but the voice is iconic. DICK TUFELD, the voice of the “Lost in Space” Robot has died at eighty-five, his long time friend and costar Bill Mumy announced today via Facebook. In addition to voicing the Robot, Tufeld was a familiar voice actor having announced the exploits of the super-sub Seaview on “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”, “Time Tunnel”, and in commercials for the bubble bath Mr. Bubble. Tufeld also was the announcer on  various Disney TV shows including the 1957-59 series, Zorro, which starred future Lost in Space lead actor, Guy Williams. He also reprised his role as the Robot in the 1998 feature "Lost in Space" which starred Gary Oldman, William Hurt, Mimi Rogers, Heather Graham and Matt LeBlanc. The Catacombs extends it sincerest condolences to his family, friends and fans.

I have a couple of 'talking' B-9 robots from Lost in Space with his voice, so he hasn't been silenced.

His voice will live on.
