In 1963, Rod Serling released a Twilight Zone episode (Living Doll) that featuring an evil doll known as "Talking Tina," who could not be harmed in any way.

Why couldn't Talking Tina be hurt?

    Because it is the Twilight Zone.... No reason was given in the episode. – Wayne In Yak Jan 13 '15 at 3:11
  • @WayneInYak - I'm trying to find a cast/crew interview with the word "magic" or "cursed" in it. – Valorum Jan 13 '15 at 11:00
  • I think a talking doll that says I'm going to kill you pretty much says this isn't normal – Wayne In Yak Jan 13 '15 at 15:09

As much as I hate to say it, "Because magic".

When Erich tries to crush Talky-Tina, he can't crush her. When he tries to burn her, the flame goes out without any apparent reason for doing so and when he tries to cut her, the blade sparks but leaves no visible scarring on the doll's neck.

None of these are explicable, which only leaves the inexplicable.

    Any sufficiently advanced plot-hole-ogy is indistinguishable from magic – Olivier Dulac Jan 13 '15 at 10:19
