The Slice

Fifty years ago today

In an episode of "The Twilight Zone" called "The Jungle," dam builder Alan Richards returns to America from Africa unaware of a little surprise a witchdoctor has in store for him.

It first aired on Dec. 1, 1961, and has been seen in reruns 875,432 times.

Chances are, this ending scene isn't what inspired the "Soft Kitty" song on "Big Bang Theory."
