MARK TWAIN SERIES: CBS Radio Mystery Theater produced a total of eleven adaptations from Mark Twain's works for the show; nine were written by Sam Dann with Ian Martin writing only two. [0119] The Real Printer's Devil [0408] Tom Sawyer, Detective [0409] Is He Living or Is He Dead? [0410] The Belated Russian Passport [0411] A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court [0412] The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg [0413] The Stolen White Elephant [0414] The Mysterious Stranger [0937] The Dead House [0984] A Curious Experience [1002] The Goddess Caper** The show always tried to kick off each new year of their Anniversary (in early January) with a weeklong series written by the same author, and so Sam Dann wrote episodes 408 through 414 to launch the start of their third season. **1002 was based on “The Legend of the Capitoline Venus”

Based on a story written by Mark Twain.. the story goes old uncle Peter finds a purse in the road filled with 1100 gold ducats then is accused by the town astrologer of theft.. His nephew happens to have met Satan whom he then asks for help. A LUCKY CAT COMES TO BE THE HELP Satan gives to the house keeper of his girlfriend and Uncle peter and so the story goes something to do with the moral sense humans have over the likes of Satan and animals.......
