Japan, Nagoya. March/03/2007. ..Robby the Robot ~ Star of Forbidden Planet...In the 22nd century, an exploratory rocket visits a colonized planet abandoned many years ago. The only two survivors in the midst of the ancient civilization remaining there are an aged scientist and his daughter. However, lurking in the ruins are ?Monsters from the Id,? a presence that acts to amplify the demons present in the human subconscious. The true secret behind the global popularity of this film is ?Robby the Robot,? a servant who is faithful to his human masters. The designer of this robot, a precursor of many SF characters to come, was Japanese-American Robert Kinoshita, who went on to design the ?B9? robot servant (known as ?Friday? in Japan) that appeared in the Lost in Space TV series.
