Erich Streater is upset when his wife comes home with her daughter Christie having bought her yet another doll. Christie loves her new Talking Tina doll but her stepfather takes an immediate dislike to it. Anytime he is alone with the doll, it spouts abusive comments to the effect that it hates him and that it's going to kill him. He's convinced that his wife is behind it all, something she vehemently denies. He tries to get rid of the doll but it always seems to reappear - and also seems intent on following through with its threats.Written by
Be careful of a talking doll that doesn't like you!
This "TZ" episode from 1963 called "Living Doll" is one that's well remembered and it's entertaining and takes a twist and proves be careful and be nice don't be mean or disrespect a doll. The late Telly Savalas is Erich a tough ball his fists up dad who's little stepdaughter has just gotten a new doll called "Talking Tiny". This just isn't any doll at least she's nice with talk and actions around nice people that is. Yet with the tone and anger expressed by Erich he becomes fair game on little Tina's list to be punished and perhaps become a departed one! Overall this episode is well remembered as it takes a twist and proves the old adage be careful and be nice as a little doll can have it's own magic and powers in "The Twilight Zone". Really a well done creepy and strange episode with a scary tone.
