Now, back to the main subject. On the show, Captain Video, one of the evil characters was a robot that was put together backwards. So, instead of being a great help to humans (which it was supposed to be), it became humankind's nemesis. Even the name stamped on it was backwards. It was supposed to say ROBOT, but when stamped backwards it read TOBOR, and that is where it got its name, Tobor the Robot. Here are some pictures:
Dave Ballard played Tobor in the Captain Video series. Tobor was quite tall so it would take a tall man to play that part. Dave Ballard was 7'- 6" tall, so he was perfect for the part. As you can see from a couple of the pictures above that have people with the robot, that it was quite tall. That made it even scarier. Now, don't get chased by any bad robots but have a great day, you hear?
