  • Notes

    • The third segment, "Stop the World, I Want to Goof Off.", has precedents. In 1962, John D. MacDonald published a novel titled The Girl, the Gold Watch & Everything, which featured a watch that could stop time. The following year, The Twilight Zone aired episode #124, 5-4, "A Kind of Stopwatch," which featured a time-stopping watch, and introduced the idea of breaking the watch, leaving the protagonist stranded.


      In 1980, MacDonald's novel surfaced as a made-for-TV movie starring Robert Hays and Pam Dawber. Several TV critics, unaware of the publication date of the novel, accused the movie's producers of plagiarizing from The Twilight Zone.
