Almost Human (1950)

In a story written by Robert Bloch, a well-meaning scientist builds a robot named “Junior” with consciousness and judgment as part of its programming. "The Duke," however, enters the scene and teaches "Junior" how to kill, a talent he becomes almost too good at employing!

The Robot Killer (1950)

"The Happy Sam Show" is going to give away a "mechanical man" as a jackpot prize. This robot will do whatever it is instructed to do, but when it is instructed to go over to a kitten and pet it, the robot breaks the kitten’s neck. When the robot is won by a young couple, the consequences could be quite life-threatening indeed!
