  1. 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.
