The Twilight Zone episode It's a GOOD Life
  • Categories:Inanimate, Television Episode
  • Title "It's a GOOD Life", (C) 1961, Magic, Horror, pub Cayuga, Cast: (Anthony Freemont) Bill Mumy

Description

A small boy wields god-like powers over a community that he has psychically isolated from the outside world. Reality in this private little corner of Hell is dictated by his immature desires, while the helpless adults must endure it all stoically and try to keep him happy by only thinking GOOD thoughts. During the celebration of his birthday, a local adult gets drunk and verbally assualts the boy, at which time he is (permanently) turned into a jack-in-the-box, shown only in silhouette. Very creepy, one of the all-time most remembered episodes. This was remade in the theatrical version of the show in '82, though it was handled much differently (virtually a comedy).
