This Lidsville episode would seem to have been inspired by both the H.R. Pufnstuf entry "Mechanical Boy" and the Bugaloos installment "Courage, Come Home." Getting even with Weenie the Genie (Billie Hayes) for escaping his evil influence, malevolent magician Hoo Doo (Charles Nelson Reilly) transfers Weenie's powers to Mark (Butch Patrick). As a result, Mark morphs into a "bad guy" who intends to use his powers against his friends in Lidsville. But Mark is rescued by the timely intervention of Rah-Rah the Football Helmet (who, as we all know, is a graduate of Fedora U.).
