  • The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street Theme: Don't Jump To Conclusions
  • The Monsters On Maple Street One of the Main Themes of "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street" by Rod Sterling is Don't Jump To Conclusions. A scene that clearly expresses this theme is when Les Goodman's car began to work on its own. When this happens, most of the Residents think Les is the monster, when he really did nothing wrong.Another scene that expresses this theme is when Charlie accidentally shot Pete Van Horn, this happened because they were all scared when the dark figure was walking toward them. Charlie shot the dark figure because he thought it was an alien, but it was Pete Van Horn.My last scene is when Charlie blames Tommy for everything that has happened. After accidentally shooting Pete Van Horn, Charlie's lights in his house began to work, while no one else's would. These are some scenes that I think explain why one of the main themes of "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street" is Don't Jump To Conclusions
  • Evidence 1: Les Goodman's car began to work, when nothing else would. Because of this they thought he was the alien.
  • Evidence 2: Charlie along with everyone else say a figure in the distance and thought it was the alien, but it was Pete Van Horn. Not knowing it was Pete, Charlie shot him.
  • Evidence 3: Since Charlie shot Pete, and the lights in his house began working they thought it was Charlie, and to make matters worse, Charlie blamed Tommy.
