(This seemed like it wouldn't quite fit in Re-Check or Human Resources.  Please forgive the newbie mistake if this should go in one of those places instead).

Anyway, somewhere in Futurama there's a particular episode of The Scary Door... the one with this guy:


I can't seem to remember which episode this Scary Door is from.  Anyone remember?

Does that also include The Scary Door in a deleted scene of The Birdbot Of Ice-catraz?

Edit - since my POS computer glitched and posted this without any content, I'd like to add what I was going to say:

The episode which was first brought up in this thread parodies only one episode, in which a man is the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust and is pleased that he will finally be able to read in piece. Unfortunately, he drops his glasses and whines a lot.

The Scary Door episode from "I Dated A Robot" parodies several episodes, including one in which William Shatner spotted a Gremlin on the wing of an airplane he was flying in, but I don't know enough about "The Twilight Zone" to spot every episode referenced. Little help?

The idea of never losing at a slot machine (and therefore being in Hell) comes from an episode called "A Nice Place to Visit."  The man in The Scary Door looks like Sebastian Cabot, who appeared in that episode.

The character suddenly becoming Hitler may be a reference to the episode "The Man in the Bottle," in which a man wishes for power and becomes Hitler.

the airplane episode w/ Shatner is called "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", and was written by Richard Matheson (I am Legend, What dreams may come, a dozen other classic TZ episodes...)

sorry... couldn't help myself, i just recently translated I am Legend for a serbian publisher, and i had to talk about the author and the book on tv, sf-geek societ meetings etc. so i can now show off :P

during the ending credits of one episode there was an episode of "The Scary Door", what three vials of "evil" animals were used to creature the most evil creature on earth?

Hmm, I had no idea I'd end up starting a trivia thread, but let's see... I think it was scorpion, lion, and shark.

I just checked (it's 4ACV17 - Spanish Fry).  There are flasks of DNA of those three animals, but there is also a fourth labeled flask...

That is very cool.  Which was your favorite.  Also, I know Serling wrote most of the episode.  How many othe writers were there?

From TZ episode guide :

AND WHEN THE SKY WAS OPENED   ***
Writer: Rod Serling
Director: Douglas Heyes
Cast: Rod Taylor, Charles Aidman, James Hutton, Maxine Cooper
After three astronauts return from man's first space flight, each of them mysteriously disappears.  Based on a short story by Richard Matheson.
SJ: Serling was so impressed by Matheson's work that he was later asked to write more episodes himself.

my favorite Matheson episode is probably the one where Shatner becomes obsessed with the fortune telling thingy in a small town...

ALso a excellent matheson ep, i think it's called "3rd from the sun" - an episode where an old farmlady fends off some miniature alien spacecrafts...
