Mascot The Robot Dog
The robot dogs are a unique part of the Diamond Dust show.
Mascot 11 has been on the show around 1984. He usually appears at the end of the show. The children sit in a circle. Mascot, our robot dog, will glide across the floor and into the ring. The dog’s lights flash, and the alarms blast. The children are mesmerised as he interacts with them.
Martin’s interests’ science fiction and pets – can be seen by the addition of the robots to the show. His household includes two cats and the original robot dog, which is over 30 years old that appeared on national television.
Mascot The Robot Dog (Mk I) appeared on the show from 1979 to 1984 and on national television. The original had a total rebuild. He has been on the show from time to time; however, we continue to work on improvements.
Martin Thompson has appeared on television with Mascot on Noel Edmonds’ Multi-coloured Swap Shop. He is a member of Equity. Mascot The Robot Dog (Mk1) worked on the show from 1979 to 1984 and was on national television.
“Entertainers are advised to avoid children and animals – Martin Thompson revels in both, even though Mascot is not quite canine”.
