|October 3, 1963  "The
Case of the Shifty Shoebox"
This episode features Billy Mumy, known
to most fans as the know-it-all kid in "Lost in
Space." Mumy also starred in "Bang, You're
Dead," one of the most memorable episodes of another
classic TV show, "Alfred Hitchcock Presents."
His role in this Mason episode is remarkably similar to
his Hitchcock appearance. As eight-year old Miles
Jefferson, Mumy finds a gun belonging to his uncle. He
hides it, not knowing it is the key to a homicide case
and is the only evidence that can get his Aunt Sylvia
freed from a murder charge.
