Anthology TV episode... any ideas?

It's time once again to put TCF to the test.

A coworker and I were talking about tv shows, and he came up with one I hadn't heard of. He said its name was something like Oddity, Oddities, or Odyssey, and aired in the early to mid 80s, specifically when Amazing Stories was on the air.

He also gave a description of a particular episode: a surgeon had been researching head transplants, perfected it on animal subjects, but needed human volunteers. As luck would have it, his wife was cheating on him, so he trapped the wife and her lover somehow. He didn't kill them, but instead drugged them both, and surgically swapped their heads. The wife had the lover's body and vice versa.

So... what was this? Googling is finding all sorts of nifty stuff (like an old episode of Monsters which wasn't it).

Thanks.

Greg

Tales from the Crypt has a synopsis of one episode very similar to this:

Season 3, Ep 13

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...Crypt_episodes

"Spoiled" Haunt of Fear #26 Andy Wolk Connie Johnson August 21, 1991
A housewife (Faye Grant)obsessed with soap operas has an affair with a cable guy (Anthony LaPaglia). When the husband (Alan Rachins) finds out, he decides that the best revenge is to use the two as human subjects in his biological experiment.

And, going even further, the Tales from the Crypt episode said it was sourced by comic "Haunt of Fear #26", and if you search for that, you get this synopsis:

Synopsis:The wife of a brilliant surgeon and her lover have cause to regret their affair when the doctor cuts off their heads and places the woman's head on the man's body and the man's head on the woman's body.

Q.E.D.

I just had lunch with him as these posts came up, and he said oh yeah, that's it. No wonder he couldn't find it, he wasn't even close with the name. Then he gave me another one. :P Not posting that one, haha.
