'WAY OUT ~ Death Wish / Talent Associates - 1961

It's another Way Our Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. This is number 4 of the 5 episodes we're featuring here from this rare TV series. Blogger The Gremlin is back, tinting and fading out the stills so I don't have to, but, go ahead and enjoy 'em anyway.

Eegah!! sent over a soundclip from this weird episode for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the atomic coffin with an ash tray, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's a taste of... DEATH WISH!

Host Roald Dahl gives an especially weird intro to this episode right after he lights up his L&M that's made from 21 blended tobaccos for that extra flavor and enjoyment!

Don Keefer and Charlotte Rae play George and Hazel Atterbury, she never stops yakking away, even at a funeral. George notices the undertaker making weird jesters with his eyes!

When George and Hazel get home it's always the same thing, she can't stop being annoying, and, she's absolutely in love about her TV. She never even gives poor old George a chance to ever say anything!

George goes for a walk to get away from Hazel and her TV, he happens to go past the funeral home and stops to check out the window display. The sign says, "Let us dispose of the body."

The undertaker, Mr. Petard, lets George in and starts quizzing him on why he was there. Eventually, Petard discloses that they're also in the business of getting rid of undesirable marriage partners! George is intrigued...

George calls Hazel and tries to tell her that he has a little surprise planned for her, as heard in the rockin' soundclip!

Then, Mr. Petard shows George the office/lab and introduces him to his helper, Charon, who reminds me of Tor. Check him out measuring old unsuspecting George!

So, George signs the contract without reading the fine print.

Thing is, the person wanting to do away with their partner is actually committing the crime, and so, they are the one to end up in the coffin!!

He looks so natural!.. Tune in tomorrow for a change of pace from Eegah!!

If I recall correctly, and I don't always do, this show came on at about 8 o'clock on Fridays, but one thing for sure, by comparison to everything else, it was without a doubt, Way Out!!
