LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dick Tufeld, a radio and TV announcer best known as the voice of the robot in the 1960s television show "Lost in Space," has died. He was 85.
Mt. Sinai Memorial Parks says Tufeld died Sunday at home in the Studio City area of Los Angeles.
Tufeld's career included announcing for the 1950s radio show "Space Patrol." He also worked on hundreds of commercials, sports and news programs and TV shows ranging from "Zorro" to "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea."
However, Tufeld is perhaps best known for voicing the "Lost in Space" robot, whose warnings of "Danger, Will Robinson!" became a catchphrase.
An obituary released by his family says services will be held Friday at Mt. Sinai Hollywood Hills.
