In this classic episode, Rob (Richard Deacon) becomes obsessed with the notion that he's going bald. A trip to the barber (Ned Glass) doesn't provide much comfort, though Rob does come home with a hair-restoring formula that rather resembles a salad (and smells like one too). The situation is brilliantly played to the hilt with an unforgettable "double nightmare" climax, which not only sends the audience up the garden path twice, but also manages to throw in a quickie spoof of The Amazing Colossal Man!
