…aaaannndd we’re back.
A bit from Wikipedia about the show:
Amazing Stories is a fantasy, horror, and science fiction television anthology series created by Steven Spielberg. It ran on NBC from 1985 to 1987. The series was nominated for 12 Emmy Awards and won five. It was not a ratings hit (ranking 40th in Season 1 and 46th in Season 2), however, and the network did not renew it after the two-year contract expired. The 1987 science fiction movie, *batteries not included was originally intended to be featured in Amazing Stories, but Steven Spielberg liked the idea so much that he decided to make it a theatrical release.
Bronson played a movie director in the October 27, 1985 episode titled “Mummy, Daddy”
An actor (Tom Harrison) dressed as a mummy races from location-filming of a horror movie through a primeval Southern swamp to reach his wife, who is about to give birth. But the locals believe in the eerie legend of Ra Amin Ka, and when they encounter the panicked, bandaged performer, they are positive he is the real deal.
FUN TRIVIA: Danny Elfman wrote the musical score for this episode! And the chapter is reportedly inspired by a real life event that happened when a fully costumed Boris Karloff as the Frankenstein monster traveled to the hospital where he had just become a father.http://www.bronsonpinchot.org/renee/files/mummydaddy.flv
