The Reluctant Robot (Part 7, 1980)
Here is Part 7 from another all but forgotten Field Communications special production - The Reluctant Robot. It was produced to get kids interested in Astronomical Science; pulsars, planets, space travel, etc. You can definitely see the influence from Star Wars a couple years earlier. The budget must not have been too great because the whole thing comes off as feeling like an episode of Dr. Who. (not that there's anything *wrong* with that) ;-)
This aired on local Chicago TV on Thursday, November 27th 1980 from 9am-10:30am! (Produced in 1979)
