Of course there are a slew of robots in TV and Films such as Dr. Who and the Star Wars saga but I think I’ve mentioned the most memorable and widely known.
If I have missed anybody important, let me know. I will add it to my list!
Awesome post – love it!
My memories of it are faint – but I recall loving Ultraman as a wee little one.
I didn’t watch Ultraman but would watch Gigantor every day after school, along with Speed racer.
I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award.
Thank you very much 😀
I have also nominated you for The Liebster Award – http://thehorrorbooth.com/2013/07/14/the-liebster-award/
Thanks so much for the nomination and congrats on the award 🙂
If you can think of any I may have missed, let me know 🙂
I think the 1979 version of the Shape of things to come had robots, forget the names. Does Twiki from Buck Rogers count since like Battlestar they had a debut movie? Didn’t Runaway with Tom Selleck have spider like small robots?
Oh, TV shows count! I will add Twiki from Buck Rogers. And I’ll look into The Shape of Thngs to Come, don’t remember the movie. I considered Runaway but didn’t think the tiny robots made the cut.
The robot from Wonder Woman-Ira I think it was.

With a new Terminator film now out in theaters, I thought it would be a good time to repost my Robots in Film – pictorial history (aka: My big-ass robot list) post. If you have any to add to the list, one’s I may have missed, be sure to let me know…

Thanks, I think I got most of them. Let me know if you think of something not listed 🙂 I was surprised there were so many films with or about robots.
