Arc Advancement





The Show

  • Lee Tergesen appears in this episode, but never as Chett; just the Sci-Fi Zone host. His appearance is clearly not even meant to be part of Lisa's spell (such as the role of Scampi) as Tergesen can be heard as the narrator when the three are watching an actual episode on TV.

Behind the Scenes

  • Appropriately, June Foray, who voices Talking Tammy, also voiced Talky Tina in the "Living Doll" episode of The Twilight Zone.
  • Vanessa Lee Asher, who plays the mutated pig-lady, was married to star John Mallory Asher at the time.

Allusions and References

  • Gary screaming in front of the Statue of Liberty is an obvious parody of the climax of Planet of the Apes. This itself is a tangent allusion to The Twilight Zone as Rod Serling co-wrote the film.
