Default Could The Twilight Zone Do Comedy?

The Human Man's post in the A World of His Own thread got me thinking...

There does seem to be a general opinion that The Twilight Zone comedic episodes are the weaker ones. So do you agree? Do any episodes buck the trend, or are they just fine anyway?

Post your thoughts here....

I can't think of many that really stick out as "good episodes" - especially when you think of episodes like "Mr. Dingle The Strong".

However, two stories that spring to mind are "Penny For Your Thoughts" and "A Kind of Stopwatch". Episodes that aren't really "comedy" but do have a comedic element to them - especially the latter. Both of those episodes are great and aren't considered to be too weak.
