Happy Halloween!!

Those of you who are in my age range will be familiar with the hair-stand-on-end TV show The Twilight Zone. Do do do do. Do do do do ...  Pretty scary, eh kids?

In the episode "Miniature" from February 21, 1963 Robert Duvall falls in love with a doll that lives in a dollhouse in a museum.

And, they lock him up. Why? It sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

I can't find the full episode video online, but below is a snippet from YouTube.



If anyone does find the full episode please share.

For a less scary (for some of us, anyway) vintage video about a real person shrinking down to dollhouse size check out this cool Petite Princess commercial from the 1960s. How I wanted to be this little girl when I was young. Enjoy!



Happy Halloween!! From Susan and all her dollhouse dolls. Pretty scary, eh kids?!?

    1. Hi Helen;
      I love Petite Princess furniture too. I remember this commercial and how much I wanted the furniture when I was a kid.

  5. That Twilight Zone clip is SCAREY! I will have nightmares now that I am shrinking. Seriously, who wouldn't want to spend a few minutes walking around our miniature rooms? Thank you for posting Rod Serling's homage to our hobby!
