BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY/NBC/1979-81 (Little Person)
Twiki (Felix Silla), three-foot silver robot and companion/sidekick to USA astronaut, Captain William “Buck” Rogers (Gil Gerard), a survivor from the 20th century.
Twiki (TWKE-4) was one of thousands of robotic servant drones called Ambuquads (No. 2223-T) specially designed to assist humans.
Buck Rogers, adopted one of these drones, named him Twiki and augmented its programming with personality traits of a 20th century person, thus insuring that Buck had something familiar near him to remind him of his past.
When Twiki talked (voice of Mel Blanc/Bob Elyea) he sounded like an electrical Porky Pig with a “Biddi-Biddi” noise emitted from his voice box.
Tina (Patty Maloney), a gold-plated Ambuquad who fell in love with Twiki while on board a pleasure cruiser, made “Booti-Booti” exclamations.
