I believe that Robby altered his name to Robbie to show more of his feminine side (not that there's anything wrong with that) following EST training from Werner Erhardt who himself took this to yet another step and became Susan Lucci.

That would explain the almost career-ending decision to accept that role in Lost in Space, even though it required some alterations at a Beverly Hills makeover factory. Some have opined that it cost him the job of Maximilian in The Black Hole (, but serious students of the genre doubt he could have pulled it off anyway, since Betty Ford hadn't been invented yet, and he did suffer from terminal cuteness even when falling down drunk. But his reliance on hackneyed plot devices "Danger Will Robinson, Danger!" was probably his greatest sin, outside of that unfortunate incident with June Lockhart that even the Hollywood Snooperoo wouldn't publish. How they even managed to get into that position we will probably never know.

At that point Elly locked the bar fridge but my point was made: Sic transic Robby.

Oh, she had unlocked it then? Such an optimist :)
