Special Comments:
These types of "TV" robots seemed to be abundant in the 70's as well as the 80's.  They always had some sort of space scene rotating behind their screen, when I was a kid this sort of thing always looked important.  This one is unique because of it's brute stature.  For a long time I thought this robot was playing electronic sound effects.  I found out that my robot is slightly broken, and is attempting to play music.  The mpeg movies (linked above) are both versions.  I included the correct version for you perfectionists, and then there is my version.  I like the broken sound much more!
