The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street Theme: Don't Jump to Conclusions.
Wait a minute now!
It's the kid! It's Tommy!
What how, who, why? Tommy?
Theme: Don't Jump to Conclusions. For the evidence of the theme, I put different reasons for why they jumped to conclusions way too much. My first piece of evidence, is when Charlie shot a mysterious looking figure. He had a shotgun and shot the figure who was really Pete Van Horn, a handyman, who went to check the power on other streets. My second piece of evidence, was when Les Goodman's car started on it's own, and the town blamed him. The town all saw him away from the car when it started, yet they still believed he wasn't normal. My final piece of evidence, is when Charlie accused Tommy, a 14-year old boy, of being the monster. Now this was probably out of fright, but they were too quick to blame, and should think about who they're blaming. Also, Tommy is a kid watches science fiction movies. He even said it before. These are my reasons I think you shouldn't jump to conclusions, it could kill you.
Evidence 1: In this scene, Charlie didn't know who the dark figure was, and shot Pete Van Horn.
Evidence 2: The town judged Les Goodman for being the monster, because his car started up, on its own.
Evidence 3: Charlie accused Tommy of being the monster.
