Another would-be comic blackout dud, the Night Gallery quickie (thankfully) “Junior” is reviewed here.

“Junior” *1/2

Written by Gene R. Kearney
Directed by Theodore J. Flicker
Wally Cox as the Father
Barbara Flicker as the Mother
Bill Svanoe as Junior

Two sleeping parents are awakened by the cries of their whiny child for water. Neither wants to get up to attend to him. The father does, stumbling into the child’s room, where he brings the lad a glass of water and the “child” is a full-sized Frankenstein’s monster who splashes the drink all over his face and says “thank you, Daddy.”

It’s under two minutes so no harm done, I suppose.
