TV Shows - Lidsville

Lidsville was Sid and Marty Krofft's third television show. Seventeen episodes aired on Saturday mornings for two seasons, 1971 to 73. The show involved a teenage boy named Mark (Butch Patrick) who fell into the hat of Merlo the Magician (Charles Nelson Reilly) and arrived in Lidsville, a land of living hats. The hats on the show are depicted as having the same roles as the humans who would normally wear them. For example, a cowboy hat would act and speak like a cowboy. The characters' houses were also hat-shaped.

1 Parker Tillman, the magician who owned the hat where Lidsville existed was Merlo. He only appears in the opening credits, I think. HooDoo, also played by Charles Nelson Reilly, was the magician who lived inside the hat with all of the living hats. I'm embarrassed that I actually know this... -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 11, 2013, 5:01 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Why does the wiki article say the magician's name is "Merlo"? I thought it was "Hudu", or was that a different CNR character? I remember "Uncle Crock" and his Match Game stint, so I'm pretty sure I don't have this one wrong. Anyway, am I the only one who thinks the teenage Butch Patrick is 10 times scarier than his pointy-eared alter-ego from the Munsters? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 10:30 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Yeah, what was the deal with the Krofft Brothers stranding all these kids in weird places under constant threats with no means to get home? Did they hate kids that much?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 13, 2011, 12:32 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Like other shows by the Kroftts, it concerns a character being stranded in a strange land unable to get back home. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 3, 2011, 8:14 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

8 I was about 6 years old when this mackerel flopped into the boat. Even then, at 6 years of age, I thought it was pretty stupid. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:12 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
