Carol Serling appears as a guest on NYC's "The Joe Franklin Show" (before Channel 9 became a Superstation, a dynamic that later gave Joe some nation-wide cachet ripe for Billy Crystal's parody on SNL).
The widow Serling announced the launch of "Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone" Magazine, a new monthly science fiction anthology periodical which also offered TZone transcription scripts and a serialized episode guide.
While fawning over the TZone phenomenon, Joe went off on one of his bizarre, yet not unusual, tangents by asking another panelist -- in this instance a calligraphy expert -- his opinion on The Twilight Zone.
Said calligrapher offered words to the effect of "Well, Joe, I like it. If you remember many of the plots involved the old plot of 'man versus machine" ... and that's what calligraphy is all about. It's done by hand! There's no machinery involved. ..."
"I know it's true, oh so true, because i saw it on TV."
