I'm not having much luck either. Can't heal myself so I'll heal Windows95.

Cosmo! Naught will protect you! Do you think we are playing a game? Where I come from, games play you!

Again, I believe that Mr Boddy is Russian Bot. My clue is: "Where I come from, games play you!"

This may be a reference to the meme about Soviet Russia - as in "In Soviet Russia, [noun] [verb] you" instead of "you [verb] [noun]".

(For instance, the song from the Simpsons: "So sit back, relax, and watch our revue! In Soviet Russia, Revue Watches You!")

You are correct! Mr. Boddy is Russian Bot!

A new (?) Mr. Boddy will be appointed in the next few hours and everyone's health is restored!

In case anyone is wondering about my other clues:

My image is the robot from Forbidden Planet. The director was Fred M. Wilcox. My haiku is a reference to our solar system when Pluto got "demoted". The word "planet" comes from the Greek for "wanderer". "wasn't allowed"="forbidden". In the third clue, the last word of each sentence is the name of a robot/android: Crow (MST3K), Data (TNG), Vision (Marvel), canine (K-9, Doctor Who), Rosie (The Jetsons). Anton Chekhov (who has a different spelling of his last name as Star Trek's Pavel Chekov) is a playwright best known for the dramatic principle of Chekhov's gun ("If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there."). He is, of course, Russian. Also: "rush in" and "Cosmo naught". :)

Wow...you put a lot of thought into this!

Going to give it a few more days and see if the appointed Mr. Boddy strikes; if not another will be chosen to keep the game going.

The previous Mr. Boddy hasn't struck out - so I am selecting ... Another Mr. Boddy - and they have been appointed!

We shall see if the newly appointed one (not necessarily a "new" Mr. Boddy) does anything.

Ok. Pretty sure the appointed Mr. Boddy isn't going to strike.

Shall we conclude the game for now, since we're almost upon Halloween itself? Unless said appointed person decides to strike in the next three days.

Since I can't heal myself, and I can't guess who Mr Boddy is, I ask the genie from this thread to heal me!

He doesn't, but he gives me a clue. Is that you, Buttercup? The name just reminds me of all those nursery stories about little heroines that take a trip in the woods to visit their grandmothers. :P
