I’ve just been watching the Six Million Dollar Man episode “The Return of Deathprobe” (all one word, not Death Probe mind you).
As I kid I was completely in awe of this thing – and it’s only watching as an adult that I realise how completely silly the plot really is.
I did notice one thing, it must have been incredibly dangerous to work with the prop. It really looks like it’s made out of metal and flails around rather uncontrollably in certain sequences.
Lee Majors narrowly avoids being side swiped during the sequence where he’s trying to blind the thing by spraying foam over the “visual sensors”.
UPDATE : Thanks to DrBrodski, we were able to locate this clip from the 80′s movie “Heartbeeps” featuring an ever-so-slightly-more-jazzy-deathprobe (just don’t mention “Dalek”, OK?)
