Episode Summary

A lesson is learned by watching this episode: if you want to appeal to kids, you have to be a kid yourself. Of course, Darrin learns that the hard way when he is changed into a boy courtesy of Endora. This turns out to be an excellent marketing ploy when Larry suggests that Darrin as a boy to promote his new client's toy ship company. Of course, Sam changes him back to an adult, but Larry and the client like the boy so much that Darrin gets changed back and forth from adult to kid!moreless

  • When Endora changes Darrin back into a young boy with all the memories and thoughts of his adult self, things begin to get very complicated very quickly.

    Darrin is working very hard in his capacity as an advertising executive at the McMann and Tate agency and when he falls asleep over his work at home, Sam thinks he looks very cute and still thinks so even when Endora changes him into a young boy.

    It looks like it could be a very clever and successful marketing ploy when the "young Darrin" (Billy Mumy) impresses the client, who wants to sell model ships to children with his ideas and enthusiasm. Things get hairy when the adult Darrin is not as appealing to the client as the boy and both Larry (David White) and the client want to see both Darrin and the boy in the office at the same time! Poor Darrin is constantly being changed from adult to child in order to try and please everyone and all ends well when other children tell "young Darrin" why they don't like the ships as much as other toys and finally, after much to-ing and fro-ing, things return to normal.

    Not a terribly strong episode but Billy Mumy (famous for his role as Will Robinson in 'Lost In Space') does an excellent job as the younger version of Darrin so it's definitely worth a look.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In this episode, contrary to an often-used theme from other episodes, it was possible for Samantha to undo Endora's spell without any additional explanation. Sam was able to turn little Darrin back to normal Darrin and also the other way around.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Samantha: (to little Darrin) After all, what do they expect from a 10-year-old kid? (Darrin's not pleased) Sorry darling, I was only trying to make you feel better.
      Little Darrin: Sam, nobody likes a smart-aleck witch.

    • Samantha: (scolds Endora) Mother, it isn't funny. How would you feel, if you woke up one morning and found yourself twenty years younger?
      Endora: (very pleased with this image) No comment.

    • Darrin: (angry about Endora) She could have stunted me out of ten years growth. As a matter of fact, she did.
      Samantha: Twenty actually, but who is counting?

    • Little Darrin: What time is it?
      Endora: Why don't you look at your Mickey Mouse watch?

    • (Endora turns Darrin into a boy)
      Endora: (notices the boy, to pregnant Samantha) Oh, Samantha, you better start praying for a girl.
