Storyline

The host for the episode is Rick Nelson, and the musical guest is Judy Collins. The skits for this episode are as follows: Radio DJ Dick Lanky takes a variety of phone calls from listeners and tries to find out if astronaut Frank Borman flies for Eastern Airlines. In an episode of The Twilight Zone, Ricky Nelson keeps finding himself in the worlds of Leave it to Beaver, My Three Sons and other 60's family shows. Ricky Nelson joins Dolly Parton and Bob Marley for a benefit concert to raise money for yeast infection research, but punk rocker Candy Slice shows up drunkenly incoherent. During the Weekend Update, Chico Escuela gives the sports report. An art segment takes a look at the years Picasso spent in New York. Judy Collins performs "Hard Times for Lovers" and Ricky Nelson performs "Hello Mary Lou", "Travelin' Man", "Fools Rush In" and "Dream Lover". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

When NBC syndicated this episode, part of the telephone numbers used in the opening radio station sketch were bleeped out even though they all had the 555 prefix and therefore were not valid phone numbers. See more »

Quotes

Ron the barber: I remember once I was giving a guy in the hospital a haircut, and he died right when I finished. His head slumped forward, you know, and I thought he wanted me to trim more off the back. I'm goin', shoppin' like a you know what at the back of this guy's neck and the guy in the next bed says to me: hey, I think he's taken his last haircut. That's how I found he was dead.

Ricky Nelson enters The Twilight Zone
14 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

The summary is incorrect: Ricky does not go to "My Three Sons." First, he enters "Leave It to Beaver," then he goes to "Father Knows Best" and finally he does hear the call of "is that you Ricky?" But it is from Lucy (Gilda) as he has gone to the Ricardo residence on "I Love Lucy."
