Also worthy of mention is an earlier episode in the series, "THE MAIN ATTRACTION." It too is brilliant and very funny but not quite up to the level of "MUMMY DADDY". Few things are! Miss these at your own peril.
These tales offer main characters whom you don't even know you know. Among them are Robert Picardo in "Boo!" (a.k.a. the photonic doctor in "Star Trek: Voyager"), and Sam Waterston in "Mirror, Mirror" (Frankie's husband in the Netflix hit, "Grace and Frankie"). Then there's the remarkable performance by Mark Hamill ("Luke Skywalker") in the episode entitled, "Gather Ye Acorns". Perhaps my all-time favorite (at least in Season 1) is "The Sitter", where a harried mother has difficulties finding someone to watch her two young kids while she works. Mabel King plays the titular role, and one of the two hyperactive children is played by Seth Green, who goes on to play Daniel "Oz" Osbourne (aka the werewolf) in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".
Whatever your flavor of the fantastic, you're sure to find many of the stories entertaining and provocative. It is an unsung work that is .. well, Amazing.
This season had some of the best stories from "The Mission" which I am sure was one of the most expensive episodes of it's day for TV, to "Alamo Joe" and the very funny "Mummy, Daddy." Almost all of these are instant classics and felt like short movies for the small screen. I'm glad it is coming back but on a streaming service which is unfortunate.
Do yourself a favor, grab season 1 and enjoy some ... amazing stories!

If, like me, you want to buy for old times sake, it's well worth it with the high quality picture and cracking acting. Or if you want to purchase something 'old school' these stories will get you into a wide range and test your genre of movie type - for the better.
Go on do something amazing, buy Amazing Stories!
Watching episodes now with my kids, they go from
'slightly dis-interested to totally drawn in and fascinated in the blink of and eye'.
I seen it on Amazon and bought it, and i loved watching it again.
it was well worth the money.
