(September 11, 1971-September 2, 1973)
Aired on ABC
Created by Sid and Marty Krofft
Butch Patrick as Mark
Charles Nelson Reilly as Hoodoo the Magician
Billie Hayes as Weenie the Genie
Premise: A boy falls into a magician's hat and lands in a world of living hats
Why Lidsville might be annoying
It resembled a bad acid trip, even more so than other Krofft shows.
It featured endless hat related puns. (Hoodoo demands that the Lidsvillians pay him their Hat Checks; music is provided by the Hat Band; etc.)
Reilly's performance here made his appearances on Match Game look sedate.
The Chroma-Key based special effects have not held up well.
The second season consisted entirely of reruns of the first season's episodes.
Why Lidsville might not be annoying
It lived up to the theme song: it really was 'the koo-koo-kookiest.'
It has a cult following.
It was ripped off by the British for the claymation series 'Hattytown Tales' (1980).
