Here Comes Tobor (1956) was a proposed American science-fiction television series, meant as a spin-off off the 1954 film Tobor the Great. It was produced for the 1956–1957 season. However, the project was not aired and only a pilot episode was filmed.
Tobor (‘Robot’ spelled backwards) was a nine-foot-tall robot that had come into the control of the U.S. government. In Here Comes Tobor, Tobor is owned by Professor Bruce Adams (played by Arthur Space) and mind-controlled by Adam’s nephew Tommy (Tommy was played by Tommy Terrell although Billboard erroneously stated at the time that eleven-year-old actor Tiger Fafara had been cast for the role). Tommy is, in the series, able to control Tobor through an ESP detector. Moreover, his IQ is supposedly the highest ever registered. Bruce Cowling was also cast for a role.
