Not enough to sustain a half hour time slot.

This is definitely one of the silliest episodes of "Amazing Stories"-- and it's bound to turn off a lot of viewers because of this. A housewife (Hayley Mills) finds a weird creature lurking around her house and it's eating all sorts of inanimate objects--such as folks, plates and even a piano! Inexplicably, other than asking the mailman for help, she never called for help. However, after a while she realizes that although the creature is VERY destructive, it's also not a threat to her.

I really think THE reason for this episode was to show off the talents of the folks who made the Greibble creature. Apart from this, the story is threadbare and there just isn't much to it.
