Ordinary people find themselves in extraordinarily astounding situations, which they each try to solve in a remarkable manner.
On August 11, 2009 the U.S. Postal Service issued a pane of twenty 44-cent commemorative postage stamps honoring early U.S. television programs. A booklet with twenty picture post cards was also issued. On the stamp honoring this show, is a picture of its creator, host, and narrator Rod Serling. Other shows honored in the "Early TV Memories" issue were: The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (1952), Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955), The Dinah Shore Show (1951), Dragnet (1951), The Ed Sullivan Show (1948), The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (1950), Hopalong Cassidy (1952), The Honeymooners (1955), The Howdy Doody Show (1947), I Love Lucy (1951), Kukla, Fran and Ollie (1947), Lassie (1954), The Lone Ranger (1949), Perry Mason (1957), The Phil Silvers Show (1955), The Red Skelton Hour (1951), Texaco Star Theatre (1948), The Tonight Show (which began as Tonight!

You are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone!
With the exception of end-of-season episodes, all episodes originally ended with a brief segment in which Rod Serling appeared on camera (even during the first season when he only narrated the episodes themselves) and told viewers about the next week's episode. These promos were deleted from the syndicated versions of the episodes but were later restored for DVD release, although many now exist only in audio form.
