The Outer Limits (Original Series)

The Outer Limits (1963-1965, Original Series) is a classic in science fiction lore like Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone, tending more toward the science side instead of fantasy. And as the TZ, it scared a whole generation of kids into studying the more fantastic facets of the world around us.

The following is a skit that was originally broadcast on May 4th, 1964, the final episode of the first season. There is supposedly an alternate skit to this called ‘The Unknown’, which was to be a pilot for a show of the same name.

The show also features a young David McCallum, who the following year starred as Ilya Kuriakin in Man From U.N.C.L.E.

This is for you frightened little kiddies who still jump at high pitched sounds and monotone voices…
