  • Trivia

    • In the last scene (Where Eric is killed by tripping over Talky Tina) The doll flies forward landing next to Eric. Seconds later, we see Talky Tina roll down the stairs and next to Eric. But if she already fell off...?

  • Quotes

    • Talky Tina: My name is Talky Tina, and you'd better be nice to me.

    • (telephone rings, Eric picks it up)
      Eric: Hello? Hello?
      Talky Tina: My name is Talky Tina, and I'm going to kill you.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Of course, we all know dolls can't really talk, and they certainly can't commit murder. But to a child caught in the middle of turmoil and conflict, a doll can become many things: friend, defender, guardian. Especially a doll like Talky Tina, who did talk and did commit murder, in the misty region of the Twilight Zone.

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Talky Tina, a doll that does everything, a lifelike creation of plastic and springs and painted smile. To Erich Streator, she is a most unwelcome addition to his household, but without her he'd never enter the Twilight Zone.

  • Notes

    • June Foray had also been the voice of Chatty Cathy dolls, which is most likely why she was hired to voice Talky Tina.

    • This was another episode where Charles Beaumont received the on screen writing credit, even though the screenplay was written by Jerry Sohl. Both writers plotted it together.

    • Included on volume 11 of Image-Entertainment's DVD collection.
