  • Notes

    • Fritz Weaver, who plays Dr. Fenner in the episode, also starred in an episode from the motion picture Creepshow, which the Tales From The Darkside series was based on. The episode, entitled "The Crate", concerns two college professors who discover a monstrous creature housed in a large crate underneath the campus basement staircase. Coincidently, Tales... utilizes much of the same music employed in Creepshow. Fritz would go on to star in a second Tales... episode entitled "Comet Watch" and is also an alumni of two Twilight Zone episodes, "Third From The Sun" and "The Obsolete Man".
