Synopsis

Exiled from Lidsville by evil magician Hoo Doo (Charles Nelson Reilly), the Good Hats are forced to relocate to the dismal Peroxide Swamp. In an effort to rescue his friends, Mark (Butch Patrick) assumes the identity of "Whizzo the Magician" (no relation, of course, to the character played by Marshall Brodien on the old Chicago kiddie show Bozo's Circus!) and challenges Hoo Doo to a winner-take-all duel of prestidigitation. Fans of The Munsters will enjoy Butch Patrick's decidedly Eddie Munster-lake makeup in the guise of "Whizzo," while pop-culture buffs will get a kick out of this episode's references to everything from the movie High Noon to pianist Liberace!
