Art Imitates Life is an episode of Beyond Belief.

- Spooky Hal (Narrator) - Hal Lublin
Sadie Parker and Basil Valentine are art thieves. Basil constantly tries to convince her to take the next step in their relationship (either moving in together or becoming engaged), but Sadie is hesitant.
Bobo arrives, and is surprised to see Basil. He then summons his genie, telling him that his wish didn't work out they way he'd wanted it to. Bobo found the genie's lamp a few years previous and (after taking some time to figure out how it worked), he wished that Frank Doyle had never existed. He believed that this would enable him to be with Sadie once more.
Basil, after hearing that Sadie had in fact married someone, concludes that she would be happier with the way things had been before Bobo made his wish. He steals the lamp and wishes for Bobo's wish to be reversed and to have his memory wiped of his time with Sadie. Sadie wishes that she would be able to remember.
The genie grants both wishes and sends them back to how things were before Bobo made his wish.
