One of the creepiest episodes of TV's Alfred Hitchcock Presents was called "The Magic Shop".
The storyline is about a little boy who vanishes into a magic shop, later to reappear with supernatural powers- and evil intentions.

The episode aired on January 10, 1964, as Episode 13 of Season 2.
The episode starred Leslie Neilsen as the boy's father, and a very eerie John Megna as the little boy.
Two years earlier, John Megna had played the role of Dill, Gregory Peck's son, in To Kill a Mockingbird.

Though this episode rarely airs on the reruns, once you see it, you'll remember it!

Even MORE fun...is that the “Dad” is a handsome young Leslie Neilsen (known for Airplane!, Naked Gun, and a gazillion other films and TV shows). AND... the “intern” in this episode is a young Rob (“Meathead”) Reiner (I had the fun of working with his dad, Carl, during my Hollywoode daze). ?? Cheers & Blessings, Peter & Jackie!

Oops! Disregard my previous email re: Leslie Neilsen. You mentioned it in your blurb! ???? But you can leave in the Rob Reiner mention, if you like. ??
