Absorbitorn - Alien chemical mentioned on episode No. 51 "It May Look Like A Walnut" (02/06/1963) on the sitcom THE DICK VAN DYKE/CBS/1961-66. Comedy writer Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke) first learned about the chemical Absorbitron when he stayed up to watch a late night movie thriller about aliens from the planet Twilo who used Absorbitron to take over the Earth.

The Twilo-ites subdued earthlings by exposing them to the chemical Absorbitron which caused humans to lose their thumbs and imagination, the two things that made humans human.

Without their creative ability and thumbs to use or design weapons, the earthlings would easily fall prey to the conquering aliens. See also -ALIENS: "Twilo-ites"
