Ok, I am pretty sure that author Sam Dann wrote a Trilogy here! It starts with the episode "The Jataka"- when that motley pair, the Ne'er-do-well charming schemer and his mischevious Indian servant lackey get themselves into some hot water! These are characters too compelling to give up, so Sam Dann evidently conjures up another chapter for them, the episode "The Eye of the Idol", where the names may have changed, but it's definitely them! In this episode he adds a Witch to the recipe. Then, in the "Ranee of Rajputana", Sam Dann drops the Indian servant (aw, he's so funny!) but keeps the ne'er-do-well Charmer, and he turns the Witch into....well, you'll see, Listen to the Trilogy!! Tell me what you think! Isn't this a Trilogy?

Great great story, a wonderful morality tale of priorities and what the true blessings of life really are.
