Episode Summary

EDIT
Tabitha speaks out about violence on TV. She pops on a TV show to reprimand two aggressive puppets. Of course, Darrin happens to be watching the show and tells Sam to get Tabitha off the TV. The sponsors say otherwise and Tabitha becomes a TV star. The Stephens are dead set against this and Sam makes sure that the sponsor, Mr. Silverton, brings his own daughter to the show for back-up. Tabitha isn't quite ready for the home audience yet (until 1977 with her self-titled spin-off show) and Robin, the Silverton's daughter wins her chance to be in the spotlight.moreless

  • Tabitha pops into a children's television show and makes her thoughts about television violence known to all. Unfortunately, this causes problems for Darrin.

    7.0
    Tabitha is unimpressed by the violence she sees on television when watching a Punch and Judy cartoon, and to make her feelings known she, quite literally pops into the show. Both Darrin and Samantha are horrified but the sponsor of the show is delighted with Tabitha's antics, completely ignoring the fact that his own daughter has wanted to appear on television for the longest time.



    Things almost spin out of control as the sponsor likes Tabitha's ideas more and more but finally, Samantha and Darrin are able to gain the upper hand and convince the sponsor that Tabitha does not wish to appear regularly on television. This gives his own daughter her dream chance and she takes it in a flash.



    Quite a good episode and particularly important in that it had young Erin Murphy speaking out against violence in children's television programs. A timely and important message indeed.moreless
