  3. Good morning, folks!Randal: Great job, buddy. You just took six gallery images off the table. Excellent!and Carl: Yes, # 14 is from DW: "Night Terrors." Outstanding job!That leaves 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, and 11 still out there…best,John

  4. #2 is Twilight Zone. #11 is MST3K, I think from "Devil Doll."

  5. Hi Chris G:Two more great identifications. #2 is from The Twilight Zone: "The Dummy, and #11 is indeed MST3K "Devil Doll!" Great job!

  6. #3, Night Gallery, The Doll. One of my favorite episodes. Totally creeped me out as a kid.

  7. #1 Twilight Zone: Living Doll (if I remember correctly, with Telly Salavas!)

  8. #4 Jason Of Star Command "Little Girl Lost" that you just reviewed. :)SGB

  9. If I'm not mistaken, #2 is actually from the TZ episode "Cesar and Me" from Season 5. Willy, the puppet from "The Dummy" with Cliff Robertson, only wore a sailor's outfit, not a three-piece suit. They used the same dummy, but this one is distinctively tanner. And I believe #7 is from the Tales from the Crypt episode "The Ventriloquist's Dummy" with Don Rickles and Bobcat Goldtwait.

  10. Jose:You are right, sir! Same dummy, different episode. That's from Caesar and Me, not The Dummy. Thanks for straightening it out.And #7 is indeed from Tales from the Crypt, from "The Ventriloquist's Dummy." Outstanding identifications!best,John

  11. Is #5 from "Tourist Trap"?

  12. Bia Mota:# 5 certainly looks like it could be from Tourist Trap, but as they say on Jeopardy, remember the category: cult-tv. Stil, you're right to think of Tourist Trap for this trope, the evil doll brought to,John
