    • Three of the guest stars in this episode appeared in The Twilight Zone a few years later. Betty Garde played the landlady (appropriatly enough) in "The Midnight Sun"; Joanne Linville starred in "The Passerby"; and Arch Johnson played Jesse James in "Showdown with Rance McGrew."

    Trivia (1)

    • In this premiere episode, the onscreen credits are extremely short. Only the Executive Producer, Director, Script Writer, and Technical Advisor are credited.
