20+ years ago I watched on TV several SF series movies. I remember about one episode quite clearly, and until recently I was sure that it was "The Twilight Zone". However, I watched the entire series of "The Twilight Zone", and that episode never appeared.
A child (boy) is afraid to be bullied (again) by children at the playground. The father decides to support his child, and help building his self-trust, as well as deal with the bullies. The father was himself a victim of bullying when he was a child. They go together to the playground. They decide to use the playground slide. While they slide down, the child repeats saying loud "I'm the father, I'm the daddy, I'm the pa..." At the end of the slide, the father became a child, and the child an adult. The bullies arrive, the child (adult size) gets scared and runs away, and the father (now child size) remains to re-live the horror of being bullied, like in his real childhood.
So, the questions:
- What movie was the one I just described?
- What other movies are very similar in "design" to "the Twilight Zone"?
I tried searching on the net for this, but nothing showed up - nothing relevant, I mean.
