An excellent story, well worth of The Twilight Zone!

One of my very favorite episodes. Very well done. Love the story, and the actors are wonderful. Would love to see this one as a movie.

I think this episode would be perfect if made for an antholgy tv series like Night Gallery or Twilight Zone.

A cosmetic executive is determined to aquire the formula for a miraculous rejuvenating cream sold by a strange little shop that specializes in natural products that have been saturated with moonlight. Moonlight? You heard that right. Despite her husband's warnings to be wary of this strange shop and the odd effects its products are having upon her, the woman pursues her goal to discover the secret of the moonlight products...and pays a heavy price for the knowledge. A strange little episode with a great performance by Kim Hunter. Genre: Sci-fi

Evie juster is great in all of her supporting roles. She has a very distinctive and young voice.

A cosmetics firm executive purchases some make-up from a new company. She soon develops a strong desire for moon bathing.

Def one of the best from CBSRMT. The ending is really very good! Love the whole story, it rolls along at just the right pace, not too boring and not too fast.

In this episode, the main characters at the end ride off in a spaceship, and it is understood that the passengers will be the "food" for an alien race? This episode, and "The Tell-Tale Heart," scared me when I was a kid! Similiar "To Serve Man" which was an episode of Twilight Zone ( The first Simpsons treehouse of horror). It's one of my favorites.

Excellent episode, kind of a Science Fiction Rosemary's Baby. Some of the best Mystery Theater Episodes are about regular people getting into strange circumstances, another type like that is Sagamore Cottage

This is hands down my favorite episode. I found it accidentally when I was searching for the first CBSRMT episode I ever listened to, in September 1974, "The Garden".

"Garden of the Moon" is a charming tale with the kind of twist that I love in a Mystery Theater episode, with a Sci-Fi flair that wasn't too common in the series but when done, was done well. The narrative moves at a leisurely pace that is perfect for getting to know these few but well-developed and quite likable characters. Bob Juhren is a writer with whom I am not very familiar, but after listening to this tale, I'll be checking out more of his work. I'm not certain, but was the minor character of lab scientist Erik Harrison played by Himan Brown? I really enjoyed this story! I hope you do too. - Juror #4

Moonbathing... Have to try that! Great story and I always enjoy Himan Browns's voice.

Gina, Make sure to wear your SPF -15 moonscreen. It will help to "tenderize" you. "To Serve Man! It's a cookbook!!!" -Steve
