    Sad. LIS was one of my favorite shows as a youth, and I still like the early (non-camp) episodes.

    To clarify the article, May was not the voice of the robot. That was Dick Tufeld. May was the man inside the suit. Which is kind of sad too, to be that iconic yet that unknown.

    My favorite line, "kill-crush-destroy" then followed-up by "danger Will Robinson, danger." It wasn't my favorite show growing up, but I have to say Bob May was worth watching...

    I had the pleasure of meeting him once at a sci-fi convention and got an autographed picture. He was kind of short, I guess he had to be to fit in the robot suit. He had a big beaming smile as he answered fans questions about the robot and the series. You could tell he really loved the attention and his fans.
