"The Wild Wild West" The Night of the Eccentrics (TV Episode 1966) Poster

Trivia

First televised performance of Richard Pryor.
The voice of Giulio, Richard Pryor's dummy, was provided by an uncredited Ross Martin. Martin had used an identical voice for Punchy, the cartoon character in Hawaiian Punch commercials.
When West enters the Echo Amusement Park, an organ is playing "The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze", a song composed in 1867 and inspired by the feats of Jules Léotard, a French gymnast who pioneered feats that are now standard circus routines. He also invented the tight-fitting garment that now bears his name.
