Fireball Pop remembers “THE INVISIBLE BOY” with Robby…

It’s funny because since my Pop has done so much in his life… in the movies, something comes up “outta the blue” that blows my mind. The other day, we’re talkin’ old flix and he blurts… “Hey, that reminds me of the movie I did with Robby the Robot…” And I’m like WHAT!!!!?????

“Robby the Robot!!!!??? You did a movie with the most famous Robot on the planet?” I spewed… And he’s like… “Sure, I did…” all Mr. Calm and such. Grrrr….. Then he proceeds to tell me it was really nothing and was only this and only that. And I’m like…

“Why am I just hearing about this now, you FATHER FROM HELL, YOU!!”

Anywho, I head to Amazon and sure enough, THE INVISIBLE BOY is double packed with “Forbidden Planet.” I snag it and yesterday we brought mi Padre over for lunch and popped it in.

Sure enough, there’s my Dad at 29 years old, doin’ scenes!! It was hysterical! And the Robot making it’s way to a spaceship to take the starring little kid named Timmy to space. NOW I know why I’m called Fireball Tim. Thanks a lot, Pop. You named me after a cheesy B-Movie you where in with the kid no one could see!

That’s just so cool and can barely stand it…
