One of my favorite episodes...kind of "A Christmas Carol" for New Year's Eve. Depending on your beliefs it can be quite uplifting. Fred Gwynne didn't appear in many CBSRMT episodes but when he did, he always created memorable characters. He's terrific here. Never mind that you can see the finish a mile away; this one is a lot of fun and it will make you feel good.

Ummmm...Fred Gwynn was in like a gazillion episodes.

No, Don, just 82. He was outstanding in every episode he was in, too. He was so gifted as an actor who appeared in comedies, dramas, even musicals, but, sadly, so many people know him as Herman Munster. That's not to denigrate a Sixties TV icon, but this man was so much more. He wrote some very clever children's books, which are very hard to find now. I'm not sure what your remark means, Don, but I treasure his performances, even in episodes I'm not fond of. RIP, Fred Gwynne.

This is an excellent episode to listen to on New year's Eve. Fred Gwynne was again great in this episode. I give this episode 5 Stars!

Fred Gwynne. Full on rockstar.
