One of my Facebook friends sought my help in tracking down a pretty obscure (It's obscure if I never heard of it!) TV series or an episode from an anthology series. Since her description didn't ring my chimes, I decided to turn to Team Toobworld for help.

Here's what she could offer:

Back in either the late 70's or very early 80's when after-school-specials were big, I saw something that I want to get my hands on. I am not sure if it was an after-school-special per se, but it was on after school.

It was about a boy that could do out-of-body experiences. At one point he went into the body of a wolf and saw and smelled what the wolf could see. I don't remember anything else abou it though.

The show did a great job of showing that the wolf could hardly see the boy standing there even though he was wearing a checkered shirt.

I have searched before and not had any luck. I looked in the after-school-special sets but it is not there as far as I can tell (although I haven't look at any recent sets)

Your mission, should you decide to take it, is to find a copy of that scene in the woods with the boy and the wolf, good luck.

I get the feeling that finding the scene would be next to impossible, save by bit torrents or bootlegs, but if anybody could help me track down what show this might have come from, it would be a big help!

[She says it was a one-shot story, so I guess that excludes 'Lucan' from 1977-78........]

It doesn't sound familiar but it sure does sound like something I'd like to see. Guess I know what I'm looking for this weekend....
