Who was the voice of the robot on the TV show Lost in Space?
—Phil Candillo, Minden, La.

The voice of "Robot," known for the phrase "Danger, Will Robinson!" on Lost in Space, was provided by Los Angeles-born Dick Tufeld, who spent most of his Hollywood career being heard but not seen. He was the announcer or narrator for several other TV shows of the 1960s, including Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Surfside 6 and The Time Tunnel. Most recently, you may have heard his familiar-sounding voice in two episodes of The Simpsons—as a robot, naturally!
