It’s with great sadness that we have to report the death of Robert Kinoshita. Known for his work as a production designer and art director, Kinoshita is best known for designing the iconic robot from the 1960s series LOST IN SPACE and for Robby the Robot in FORBIDDEN PLANET. He was 100 years of age, and his death actually occurred on December 9th despite being only reported now.
Kinoshita is survived by his daughter, Pat Aoki.
The thoughts of all at STARBURST go out to the friends and family of Robert Kinoshita.
