There's sadness in Santa Fe, and amongst robots all througout the world.
Robbie the Robot's dad has died, at the age of 100.
VARIETY ran an obit for him… though, unaccountably, they barely mention Robbie in passing, instead headling Mr. Kinoshita's later lesser creation, Robbie's idiotic younger brother, the LOST IN SPACE robot. (Who was so dumb he never realized he had no name but 'Robot.')
Robots live forever, but all men must die. Still, Robbie is weeping into his popcorn today.
