Default Twilight Zone Spoofs

Carrying on with this week's topic of comedy and The Twilight Zone, here's a thread dedicated to the many spoofs out there of the show. Of course, there's the brilliant work by Matt Groening - as shown by Sarah a couple of weeks ago. But what else comes to mind? Have you seen any others?


Here's a spoof. It's not funny, but it's John Candy.

This skit from The Jack Benny Show (1959/60ish) featuring Rod Serling is pretty funny. Jack Benny gets sucked into the Twilight Zone after telling Rod Serling he doesn't believe in it and that Serling's writing makes no sense!

(Although there is an absolutely awful bit of racial stereotyping going on that is typical of "comedy" of the time but the rest of the clip is very funny...)

I posted this a little while back, but a skit from SNL with Jude Law and Pearl Jam.

A brilliant spoof there! I'm not a fan of most SNL stuff, but that's not a bad skit. Still, I think the king of the Twilight Zone spoof has got to be, without contest, Matt Groening!

When I was thinking of this thread, a memory popped into my head from out of nowhere! Does anyone remember this Twiglet's advert from the 90s? The Twiglet Zone! I can't believe I remember it - it's not exactly memorable, and I was only 5 when it aired!

I remember that! I've not seen it since it originally aired and at the time I realise it was a TZ spoof.
