One of the earliest TV memories I have, is of the show, ‘SOAP‘.
I haven’t thought about this for years, but the episode that totally freaked me out, was the one where the baby became possessed by the Devil.
Alfred Hitchcock Hour episode ‘Special Delivery‘
This is online somewhere. Can’t locate where. A little boy orders a kit for growing mushrooms. Slowly, the boy’s personality changes and his behavior becomes odd. I think what freaked me out about this episode, is that it was one of the few times on television that something strange like that .. would happen to a child. Which definitely doesn’t happen these days.
Thanks! Great site!
