On Borrowed Time is a Family Friendly Show. Gramps is fearful that after his death, his young orphaned grandson Pud will be placed in the care of his cranky, moralizing Aunt Demetria. When the Angle of Death, in the form of Mr. Brink, comes for Gramps, the old man tricks him into climbing the old apple tree, which will not allow anyone to come down unless Gramps says they can, and Death is trapped in the tree and cannot take Gramps or anyone else. On Borrowed Time, by Paul Osborn, from the novel by L. E. Watkin, directed by Ken Weigert & Keith Soester and produced by Sharon Rill.
