Quite a humorous episode. Some rather needed amusement when everything else is so serious.
One review caught my eye:
i still believe Andy Devine's character of Frisky is the best Twilight Zone's episodes ever and I watch this episode at least once a year as I consider Frisby to be a fortunate man as he has many friends who love him dearly.
In case many of you are too young to remember, I'm 61, Andy Devine hosted a children's entertainment show in the 50's I believe called Andy's Gang. On it he had three assistants: a cat named Midnight who played the violin, a mouse named Squeaky who played an a hand organ and a devilish toad named Froggy who's could appear and disappear at will embarrassing many of Andy's funny guest stars like Billy Gilbert.
This is my first and only exposure to Andy Devine, and I looked up Andy's Gang, and that is the title . It ran from 1955 - 1960. I couldn't find it on Uncle Earl's though.
there doesn't seem to be anything here
