Robert’s Robots

BOB “RENTAGHOST” BLOCK-scripted sci-fi weirdoid adventures of Robert Sommerby (JOHN CLIVE), a James Burke type bloke with frizzy hair, who built robots (in the way that telly inventors do, for no apparent reason). The big, strong, incredibly dim-witted one (BRIAN COBURN) was called KT, thereby providing lots of chances for Robert’s girlfriend to think he was having an affair with someone called Katy. There was also Eric (NIGEL PEGRAM) – slim, blonde-haired and very clever. KT’s catchphrase:”I like it Mr. Sommerby…I like it!”. One episode involved Eric being hit by a car, losting his memory and going to see a doctor who found he could look straight through Eric’s head when he examined his ears. Also present: obligatory “comedy” animal (see Dobbin in RENTAGHOST), in this case Blabberbeak, a talking parrot.
