The Twilight Zone turned 50 this month, too...but it never gets old. Much has been said about the suayve and deboyner "Don Draper", but I like to think that his ineffable coolth was modeled on Rod Serling's smoke-gets-in-your-eyes squint and clenched-jaw baritone delivery of existentialist aphorisms. Let's raise an old-fashioned glass to the ad men of The Twilight Zone: the free-falling (with a hard landing) Accounts Guy from (my favorite) "A Stop at Willoughby"; Gig Young's Media Guy from "Walking Distance" (an inferior fraternal twin of "Willoughby", in my estimation—but prominently featuring a carousel); and honorary ad man Dick York's fine comic and dramatic turns in "A Penny for Your Thoughts" and "The Purple Testament" (but was Darrin Stephens Accounts, or Creative?).
