Dear Santa.

Just saw that the original Robbie The Robot suit/custume/prop from Forbidden Planet (1956) will be auctioned off by Bonham’s next week.

Robby The Robot: “If you do not speak English, I am at your disposal with 187 other languages along with their various dialects and sub-tongues.”

The prop, built by MGM at a then-huge cost of $125,000, does not actually speak 188 languages. Keep that in mind as you consider a bid.
