The Gift of Fear is the final Christmas episode of Suspense that debuted on CBS on December 22, 1953.


In an effort to get her young son to behave a department store's toy department, she tells him that bad children are locked in a closet by a mean watchhman. Later, the child slips out of the house and returns to the store to buy his mom's present. His timing is bad and he's locked in at closing, spending the whole night trying to escape the "scary" night watchman.
