Robby the Robot Born July 1st 1955 (63 Years Old) has had an interesting life in pictures. As a well recognized prop, his longevity as an actor has covered six decades. He has worked with Hollywood's "A" List Actors such as Walter Pidgeon, Leslie Nielsen, Peter Lawford, Bob Denver, Anne Francis, Peter Falk, & Lynda Carter just to name a few. The consummate professional he was, Robby did all his own stunts, and never used stand ins. Thought he was stood in a lot! This probably lead to his Multiple Personality disorder! Of the 3 choices, what do you believe lies ahead for our Rustic Robot?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls029929703/
Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/45lvSVpsJgM/

As you can see here, Robbie is going over his lines with co-star Anne Francis on the set of Forbidden Planet (1956)

If this whole thing does not make you smile, there is no hope left.

Ah, I just love when props, characters and abstract entities have their own IMDb pages due to being credited. The first name I ever added on IMDb was a case like that (uncredited listing was added by someone later and is... odd, I don't know what to make of it) and I often has cases like that in my own production. Perhaps most noticeable is this eldritch abomination which is in some way mentioned in most of my productions (at times credited) and works as a good luck charm.

Oh, I know that guy well! He is actually playing a recurring role of shapeshifting interdimensional monster in my web-series! And if the guy looks suspiciously like me in some shots well, what can I say, he's a shapeshifter IRL. He even portrayed a plant in Nettle and a literal door in Night of the Living Doors

Jokes aside, the reason why he is credited for portraying Split Second in "The Bucket" is because it is usually mixed footage of several actors from the main cast on top of me. ;)

I like the title quite a bit but it is long, which could be problematic for a few reasons. I'd suggest a briefer version:

Fun Face-Off:  Robbie The Robot at 63

(Since there are only three choices, it qualifies as a face-off and having that in the title frames and orders the poll a bit.)

As you know, I do think this is a fun one. :)

May I suggest a few edits to the intro? ('In bold below.)

Robby the Robot, born July 1st 1955 (63 Years Old), has had an interesting life in pictures. As a well recognized prop, his longevity as an actor has covered six decades. His first movie was Forbidden Planet (1956). His most recent is 2005's Gavin's Pipe Dream. Of the selections below, which is your favorite?

This should help it to go live: for example, questions with an actual question mark are preferred.
As I said above, I like how you changed the title. It's creative and clever. It might still be too long but I'll look into it and let you know if it's long enough to be a problem. If you don't hear from me, Dan, Jess, or Peter about the title, assume it's fine. I would request changing "Fun Poll" to "Fun Face-Off," though, and besides, "Fun Face-Off" is alliterative, which I think fits the spirit of this poll. :)

I still love this one and it seems almost ready, now that the title is shorter. (It's too bad longer titles don't work well for a few reasons because I really liked a couple of your earlier titles. Longer titles don't fit well, though, and apparently can cause technical problems.) Would you mind making just a few more little edits to the intro.? ('In bold below.Where I added punctuation that's hard to see, I bolded the characters around them, as well.)

Robby the Robot, born July 1st 1955 (63 Years Old), has had an interesting life in pictures. As a well recognized prop, his longevity as an actor has covered six decades. He has worked with Hollywood's "A" List Actors such as Walter Pidgeon, Leslie Nielsen, Peter Lawford, Bob Denver, Anne Francis, Peter Falk, and Lynda Carter, just to name a few. The consummate professional he was, Robby did all his own stunts, and never used stand ins. Although he was stood in a lot! This probably lead to his Multiple Personality disorder. Of the 4 choices, what do you believe lies ahead for our Rustic Robot?

Thank you. : )

By the way, I really like the intro.: it's funny, informative, and well-written. This poll is so clever and unique. Bravo.
