    But if you don't want to be spoiled, he is from the season one episode “The Corbomite Maneuver.”
    Go watch it now!

    Tn....a little warning that the images you linked to would be MORE terrifying than what I'd remembered would have been great :ack::eek: SO SCARY!

    But thanks. At least now I know who haunts me at night....

    ....and what he looks like years later, as a corpse...

    Ah good ol Balok. He only shows up at the end of Season 2 episodes, otherwise its either the Andoran Slave Girl Vira from "The Cage" or a bland starfield. Its supposed to be a dig by Star Trek associate producer Bob Justman at then Desilu exec Herb Sallow or something. Futurama also did a funny bit on the credits for "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" featuring Kiff as Balok.

    Also...

    That puppet scared the pants out of me when I was a child. In fact, I avoided watching the TOS credits because it scared me so much.

    I only got over my fear by watching the episode which the puppet appeared. Ironic.

    I guess I never really cared since TOS reruns were essentially a late night thing when I was 4 to 5 so I missed out.

    And since I mentioned it before...

    Yes. See DisneyBoy, you're not alone.
    I think it had me too for a while, but since I was always watching Trek I got used to him.
    It’s one of the scariest creatures from that tv era. I’m sure it inspired plenty of nightmares.
    Actually, I find Sci-Fi that features some sort of puppet or doll to be some of the most frightening stuff.



    Do we still need spoilers to discuss this?
    Oh well.

    It's deffinetely one of the more effective alien designs they had in TOS, along with the Horta. But is it scarrier than the "giant eye from hell" from the last few Season 1 Twilight Zone's? Probably not.

    Really funny timing. I was watching the Futurama episode "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" yesterday with the commentary. Someone (I forget who - David X Cohen?) confessed to being afraid of Balok and would hide his eyes whenever Star Trek would end.

    The one with the messed up eyelashes?
    Yeah, that's not something you want to see late at night.
    I think the doll's eye freaks out plenty of people too.

    Twilight Zone aired on CBS, right? I kind of wonder if they were mocking the CBS logo.

    Yeah, thank god for title sequence plastering durring the summer 1961 rerun season. Its only intact on three episodes.

    For those who do not know, the "eye from hell"
