FromTheTwilightZoneAndBeyond2

Hello. I am Talky Tina. When I was young, in the early years of television, a lot of my friends worked in televions programs that pushed the boundaries of imagination, sight, sound, perception, identity, belonging. The time was fueled by the paranoias and fears of the fifties, sixties, and the cold war. Oh, it was grand to play with my childhood friends back then!! Spurred on by advances in sciences and technologies brought with the advent of nuclear power and the space race (we had such great toys!), programs like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits provided wonderful experiences, and insights into humanity (and friends!).


Somehow, as a child of that era, I have found that I can only see in black and white. But that's okay, because a black-and-white sequence makes for a smaller GIF anyway! Can you help me relive my childhood (and perhaps your childhood, or that of your parents?) with some nice, friendly b&w animated GIFs From The Twilight Zone and Beyond?  Try to capture all of the really nice childhood moments! You know the really, really best and funnest parts!


I will be watching to see your assignments, so don't let me down, friend.

Red Alert, on Maple Street

“Red Alert” animated GIF, by aforgrave, from “The Monsters are Due On Maple Street”

“The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs, and explosions, and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices …

Missing Glasses

It’s A Good Life: Trading Cards

Brian Bennett beat me to the punch this evening by posting a ds106zone The Twilight Zone trading card of Mr. Hollis from the episode “It’s a Good Life.”  While I had started working on GIFs from the episode a couple weeks back (originally thinking of doing a multi-panel GIF, either …

DUBSTEP!!!!!!!!!! AHHHH, MY EARS!!!

I found the episode, “The Invaders,” of the Twilight Zone to be freakin hilarious!

I miss my childhood when Dubstep didn’t exist.

I used MPEG Streamclip to trim my scene, exported it as images, imported in GIMP as layers, scaled images, and saved as .GIF. BAM!…

A Katamit’s Private Thoughts

With all that capacity up there in the braincase, the Katamit is able to both communicate telepathically with the earthlings, but also reserve some bandwidth for his own secure and private thoughts.

Would that our intrepid hero Cryptographer Michael Chambers had spent more time trying to decipher the Katamit text …

Whats UP? Invaders GIF

The aliens are here.

My favorite part of the Invaders episode was definitely watching Agnes Moorhead chew on the chip, or whatever it was, in the beginning.  This clip captures the eerie mood as she stirs her smoky cauldron and begins to hear strange noises.
