Clinkers, The - A pair of clumsy
robots who stumbled about their suburban home on comedy segments
of the summer variety program SHIELDS AND YARNELL/CBS/1977-78.
Robert Shields and Lorene Yarnell, a popular husband & wife
mime team from San Francisco played the Clinkers.
TRIVIA NOTE: On the reunion
TV-movie WILD WILD WEST REVISITED (1979) Shield and Yarnell
played a couple of black-leather clad robots called Estonia and
Alan. They were created by Michelito Loveless (Paul Williams), the
son of deceased criminal genius Dr. Miquelito Loveless (Michael
Dunn). Michelito called the robots his $600 people (actually
$609.00) because that's what it cost to build them. These robots
and an army of Loveless' clones forced secret agents James West
(Robert Conrad) and Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin) out of retirement
to prevent villain Michelito from cloning President Cleveland and
other world leaders and taking over the world.
