A visit with Dick Tufeld

Dick and JerryLast night I had the honor of visiting Dick at his home in California to thank him in person for his time, effort and support of the B9 build off. I know everybody absolutely loved the interview that Dick did at the build off. It was one of the main highlights! The experience was humbling and amazing.  Guy Vardaman was with me and Dick proceeded to tell us about his experiences with the show as well as another sci-fi show he did work on called Space Patrol. If you want to see pictures of a very young Dick Tufeld, look on page 256 of that book. I barely recognized the man!! He then showed us around his home, we saw some very interesting Lost in Space memorabilia just lying around, and then we got to see his pride and joy…his grandchildren. Awesome! What a visit!!! One I will not soon forget!! I think it would be neat if Dick had a full sized robot in his house!!! He seemed to like that idea as well! :)

  1. what an amazing voice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Watch the show when i was a kid in brooklyn N.Y I really thought
    it was a real robot, specially when they took the bubble head off
    on the show, I was total confused and wanted a robot just like the one on the series. I kept telling my dad it was real a real robot
    and back them he just laugh and said no son theirs a man operating it from the inside. I still didnt believe it so they did a fine job fooling everyone. It was one of my favorite shows of all time
    thanks for the memories.
