I just joined up with the forum and wanted to say hello.
I have a question and if this is common knowledge to everyone just point and laugh as you pass by. Seems I remember an episode where Sammy Davis Jr. played a villian as I remember that wore a full head mask that had a jack-o-lantern look to it sort of like a headless horseman type of character. Can anyone shed any light on the episode and maybe give a synopsis of the episode? This episode seems to be one that had a lot of mystery and one that has stuck with me over the years.
I just pre-ordered my first season DVD set too, by-the-way. I was searching for TWWW on DVD when I found this site.

Welcome!

The episode would be: The Night of the Returning Dead.

For a real-life recreation of the scene you are talking about, see:

Welcome to the site.

That is pretty well the way I found the site. Just did a search for Wild Wild West fanfiction stories and there it was.

Thanks!
I was going totally by memory on the episode. I haven't seen a WWW episode since the original series in the 60's. I guess I was about 10 YO at the time. (OMG that was 40 years ago, YIKES). I am excited about the first season box set coming out and hope to get the other seasons as they appear.
I remember I always wanted one of those jackets that James West wore. I guess I figured that if I put the jacket on I would instantly turn COOL just like him.

welcome to the site, Longhunter!

By the way, Sammy Davis Junior was not a badguy in that episode.

Welcome aboard, LongHunter. Glad to have you on site.

"The Night of the Returning Dead" is available (still, I believe) through Columbia House, which until recently was the only licensed agent for episodes of the original series. Each DVD, usually with three episodes, is pricey, and CH is a bit of pain to work with. But if you're in a hurry to see that classic episode, for now that's the best place to look.

Things will change this summer, with the first-ever issue of the entire first season of the series in glorious b/w. Let's hope that it sells at least well enough to assure production of the second (first color) season, in which "The Returning Dead" appeared.

Let's all think of people we can buy extra sets for as gifts!

Welcome LongHunter. Your story sounds just like so many of us - wandering around trying to find some good WWW fanfiction, and stumbling across this site. I can just about promise you you'll love being on this board. It's a great place to enjoy your love of the series, and a lot of other great people's love of it!

Really smart people, in most cases. Don't know why they let me stay!

Thanks for the link to the discussion of the episode. You must have read my mind Couldron! (Of course if you read my mind, sometimes there isn't much reading material there.)
