Determined to win a $50 prize for "best costume" at the Raccoon's annual Halloween party, Ralph tries to wheedle ten bucks out of Norton so that he can rent a Henry the Eighth outfit. But Norton also wants to rent a costume and turns Ralph down. Declaring war on Ed, Ralph decides to construct his own elaborate costume out of furniture and kitchen utensils. But Ralph's jerry-built "Martian" outfit is no match for the winning costume -- and we aren't about to tell you what that is. Among other things, this episode reveals that Ed Norton's personal idol is Pierre Francois de la Brioche, the man who designed and constructed the sewers of Paris (or so Ed thinks!). First telecast on December 31, 1955, "The Man from Space" was written by A.J. Russell and Herbert Finn.
