The Ray Bradbury Theater is an anthology series that ran for two seasons on HBO, three episodes per season from 1985 to 1986, and four additional seasons on USA Network from 1988 to 1992. It was later shown in reruns on the Sci Fi Channel. All 65 episodes were written by Ray Bradbury and many were based on short stories or novels he had written, including "A Sound of Thunder", "Marionettes, Inc.", "Banshee", "The Playground", "Mars is Heaven", "Usher II", "The Jar", "The Long Rain", "The Veldt", "The Small Assassin", "The Pedestrian", "The Fruit at the Bottom of the Bowl, "Here There Be Tygers", "The Toynbee Convector", and "Sun and Shadow".

Ray Bradbury's "Mars is heaven" was originally broadcasted for X-MINUS ONE
old time radio drama. When I stumbled across the television episode (I never knew existed) I was very excited!! This is one of my all time favorite radio programs, to see it visually is definetly a treat. Check out Ray Bradbury Theater's "Mars Is Heaven".
