Comedian Muriel Landers, best remembered as Joe Besser's sister "Tiny" in the Three Stooges two-reeler Sweet and Hot, appears as Mommy Hoo Doo, the mother of evil magician Horatio W. Hoo Doo (Charles Nelson Reilly). Plaintively performing the ballad "I've Got Those 'Where Did I Go Wrong, What Should I Have Done, Broken Hearted Mommy' Blues," Mommy bemoans the fact that Hoo Doo has not lived up to her family's much-vaunted reputation for nastiness. The citizens of Lidsville do their best to convince Mommy that her son is a villain to be proud of...and then some. This episode is highlighted by clips from the previous Lidsville installments "A Little Hoo Doo Goes a Long Way," "Show Me the Way to Go Home," and "Fly Now, Vacuum Later."
