"Third From The Sun" (With all-out nuclear war about to ignite, a scientist and his pilot friend plot to escape on an experimental spaceship.) That ship was the saucer from Forbidden Planet, including the control console set. Only used in the last few minutes of the episode, it was still nice to see again.
The boarding ramp set also is used in "To Serve Man" (The Kanamits, 9 foot tall aliens, arrive on Earth with one lofty goal: To Serve Man).
The scale model saucer is used in "The Invaders" (An old woman in an isolated farmhouse encounters tiny, hostile aliens).
The FP saucer is used, still again, in "Death Ship" (A three-man spacecraft lands on a planet only to discover the wreckage of a spacecraft identical to their own. Two of the crew are convinced that they are dead, but the captain refuses to see the truth).
Modified versions of the Robby costume turn up in "Uncle Simon" (Uncle Simon tries to strike Barbara with his cane. She grabs it and he falls down the stairs to his death. His will stipulates that she must care for his latest invention - a robot. The robot begins to take on Uncle Simon's traits. Barbara finally pushes it down the stairs, but that only gives it a limp identical to Uncle Simon's. She finally realizes that she will never be rid of Uncle Simon)
and "The Brain Center at Whipple's" (A factory CEO replaces human workers with machines).

I have a question if you don't mind. A lot of us know you through your work, but we don't know John. Has your vocation always been designing and building robots and props ? If this is too personal of a question,,,,,disregard.
