Peepo - Small cowardly robot on the
sci-fi adventure SPACE ACADEMY/CBS/1977-79.
Based in the year A.D. 3732, Peepo was the property of
Space Academy, a futuristic school for young space cadets located on a
man-made planetoid. Peepo assisted
the aging space instructor Commander Gampu (Jonathan Harris) as he
imparted his wisdom to the new recruits.
Peepo's was white in color, waist-high in height, had a square
red plastic face, a pedestal foundation with wheels built into its
base and spoke with a feminine voice. Peepo moved via radio remote
control and hence became the first remote-controlled robot to be
featured in a continuing role.
Peepo was later seen on the spin-off series JASON OF STAR
COMMAND/CBS/1979-81. See also "W1K1"
