Deep in the Boonies in the central Sierra Nevada mountains of California.
The "Lost in Space" robot and the one from "The forbidden Planet" are two different robots. I wont spoil it for others as I have my two for the day.

And too bad IMD does not list the robot's names in the movies, only the human actors, too hard to remember all the robot names for the "B" movies.

Yes, I agree on that Terryl. I have located the correct Forbidden Planet robot elsewhere but I also have had my two guesses...

Robot Bill and Ted from Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) top left just below the big red robot from the movie The Black Hole (1979), don't remember the red robots name.
The red robot appears to be called Old B.O.B.
