This is one of my favorites. It actually makes me laugh at times. 😄

that episode is available in so many versions, it was one of the tales remade in the twilight zone 1983 movie, and mike starr is hilarious in it at twilight zone radio drama, and wasn't it also remade in one of the resurrected twilight zone series. anyway, the people i listened to the radio version with thought that episode ended very abruptly without the usual conclusion, and i really agree, i can't remember how the tv episode ended, but the version in the 1983 movie kind of like summed it up i thought. anyway, i have to say, that i just love anthony, isn't that right? don't we all just love anthony? he killed off half the crops... but.. its good that he did that. he's a good boy. :thumbsup: :tractor: :ear_of_rice: :cowboy: :seedling:

set to let you loose, as you built me up, worked with effect into the heart, until it danced to your tune, like the wind spun me around, till i got weak and you controlled my mind.

You're a bad man! You're a very bad man!

Why? Can't a man freaking listen to Perry Como anymore !!!!

You keep thinking bad thoughts about me!

It's good... it's good that we're thinking about you.. Isn't it good?

That was good television wasn't it. Yeah, the very best I've ever seen.

Send it to the cornfield, Anthony. Please.

Its snowing. We'll starve if half the crops die. But it's good that you did that.

Kids sleep a lot. They should have murdered him in his sleep.

LOL!

...or laced his Ovaltine with cough syrup.

Oh my god that episode is probably in my top 5 favorites. Just imagine a kid murdering people right in front of his parents and they stand by and say "it was real good that ya did that". Scary stuff.

They did a follow-up to it in the ‘02 “TZ” called “It’s Still a Good Life “. In that one, Anthony now has a daughter (played by Billy Mumy and his real daughter). Cloris Leachman also returns as Anthony’s mother.
