As with the episode "Miniature," this episode was originally not included in the syndication package for the series. According to the first printing of Marc Scott Zicree's book "The Twilight Zone Companion" (@1982), a script with a similar title and premise had been submitted to Rod Serling years earlier and he had forgotten about it. A suit was brought by the writer and, thus, the episode was not put into syndication. Eventually, the writer was paid $3,500 for the oversight. The episode has since been put back into rotation.
