Luther Dingle is a meek and mild-mannered vacuum cleaner salesman. He spends some time in a bar but always seems to be in the middle of others arguments and always seems to get the worst of it. Courtesy of visiting - but invisible - aliens, he is given great strength, some 300 times greater than that of a normal human being. Dingle becomes something of a local celebrity but just how long will his powers last?Written by
When "Jason Abernathy" comes in with the TV camera and lights he is carrying a Turner microphone attached to a coil of cable. The cable is never attached to anything yet else he begins the "interview" talking into the mike as if it were. At the conclusion he yanks out the now plugged in cable and leaves. See more »

Burgess Meredith plays meek vacuum cleaner salesman Luther Dingle, who often hangs out in a local bar with two other regulars, one of whom(played by Don Rickles) often uses Luther as his personal punching bag concerning Baseball & Boxing results. One day, two bizarre looking(but invisible) aliens arrive and use Dingle in an experiment, giving him massive strength, which of course he proceeds to squander in cheap stunts for television. Can poor Dingle stay strong, or is he not really so smart? Silly episode, with two pairs of ridiculous looking aliens is still amusing as long as you don't take it seriously(not what fans want from this series however...) A fine cast helps.
