Is this an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents or The Twilight Zone?

Can you spot which episode belongs to which show?

Whether you're a firm fan of one show or the other, this we can all agree on: The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents make for some spooky viewing! 

 by

Both shows certainly have a lot in common, right down to the subject matter that they covered. Both shows first aired in the '50s (Alfred Hitchcock Presents launched in 1955, The Twilight Zone in 1959), both shows have had numerous notable writers, and both shows have dealt with subjects that are considered moral, taboo and downright scary. The latter hasn't stopped fans from flocking to these shows. The fun in being spooked stays strong years later.

As serious fans, we're asking you to show off your eye for late-night television. Can you spot if this is an episode of The Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock Presents? Good luck!

  1. Paranoia strikes the residents of Maple Street when they believe human-looking aliens have invaded the neighborhood.
  2. A shocking surprise awaits a woman (Jessica Tandy) who is about to meet her favorite ventriloquist.
  3. Sam Jacoby is hassled by police for a burnt-out taillight. What they aren't aware of is the grisly secret that he hides in his trunk.
  4. While aboard a commercial aircraft, Robert Wilson believes he sees a gremlin on the plane's wing.
  5. A woman is surprised to learn that her husband has fallen in love with another woman. In her rage, she whacks him – literally – with a leg of lamb.
  6. A bandaged young woman awaits the outcome of an experimental treatment that has been administered to her in a last-ditch effort to make her appear normal.
  7. A man spots a former business partner aboard a ship at sea. There's just one catch — he's pretty sure he killed the guy years ago. They both end up in the water but only one comes out.
  8. The residents of a small town are terrorized by a young boy who has the ability to read minds and make anything he wishes a reality.
  9. After selling the rope for a hanging, a conscienceless peddler tries to sell the condemned man's father a bag of "magic dust."
  10. Mason Bridges plays poker with wealthy clients. He gambles everything he has and everything his company owns on one game.

Yep, most famously "It's A Good Life" and "Bang You're Dead"!
Don't forget In Praise Of Pip.

10/10. Hitchcock always added an element of humor. He must have been fun to have as a friend. His intros and extros always make me laugh.

10/10: From what I've seen, Hitchcock's plots were never supernatural, like most of TZ's.

There were some such as "Human Interest Story," "Special Delivery" and "Summer Shade." The hour-long series did "The Magic Shop" (which was similar to TZ's "It's a Good Life") and "The Sign of Satan."

I think I've seen "The Magic Shop". I hate episodes of these or any series where evil kids go unpunished. That's why "It's a Great Life" is my least-favorite TZ episode, though it's often considered the best of the series. I also won't watch TZ's "Caesar and Me", but I like to imagine that Anthony Fremont married Susan from that one, and sometime after they had their daughter, he wished her into the Cornfield before the events of the 2002 TZ sequel ep "It's Still a Good Life".

10/10. I know the TZ episodes, and quite a few of the Hitchcocks. (Love "Lamb to the Slaughter.")

Same perfect score.
5. Barbara Bel Geddes as the batting champion!

Hitchcock's favorite episode! Remember how at the end he said the next time she made the mistake of using a thawed leg of lamb?

HOLY CRAP, BATMAN! Because, I've seen just about every Twilight Zone episode, it was just a matter of process of elimination.
