There is an amusing anecdote about the early days of television. Near the end of the Twilight Zone’s run, the series broadcast an episode about an evil ventriloquist’s dummy called “Caesar and Me.” That episode aired in 1964, and two years earlier, the show had aired a nearly identical episode, also about a living ventriloquist’s dummy, called, appropriately enough, “The Dummy.” Both episodes used the same dummy to play the dummy. (He’s in David Copperfield’s Las Vegas museum, if you want to see him sometime.)
The producers that greenlit the latter episode, Bert Granet and William Froug, started producing the show in 1963 and hadn’t remembered that their predecessor, Buck Houghton, already did the same thing in 1962. Since there was no after-market for TV shows back then, no streaming and little syndication, everyone shrugged when they found out and assumed the audience would never catch on.
