* LargeHam: [=HooDoo=]. Most of the other characters are as well, but [=HooDoo=] still outhams them. He's played by ''[[MatchGame Charles Nelson Reilly]]'', after all.

* VillainEpisode: A few episodes focused more on the villains than on the heros. "Take Me To Your Rabbit" and "[=HooDoo=] Who?" come to mind.

* GoneHorriblyRight: "Have I Got a Girl for [=HooDoo=]", the Crossover episode in which Witchiepoo and [=HooDoo=] meet. Mark and the Hat People initially hope that if [=HooDoo=] successfully finds a love interest through the dating service, he'll cease his habit of randomly flying over Lidsville and "zapping" everything in sight to alleviate his boredom. Unfortunately, [=HooDoo=] and Witchiepoo take an instant dislike to each other for not being the sexy figures they'd portrayed themselves as in the mail. Double unfortunately, they end up finding a common ground and mutual attraction when they start "zapping" Mark and his friends when the Lidsvillians try and "help out" on the date. So Lidsville winds up with ''two'' {{Evil Sorcerer}}s in residence, both of whom consider doing the magical equivalent of a fly-over bombing run on their town to be a romantic day's out. Luckily StatusQuoIsGod...

Extremely similar to ''Series/HRPufnstuf'', '''''Lidsville''''' featured a boy, Mark (Butch Patrick, of Series/TheMunsters fame), who falls into a stage magician's top-hat into the eponymous hat community. Having gained control of a ring-dwelling (non-hat) Genie (played by a [[GenderFlip gender-flipped]] Billie Hayes, who also played Witchiepoo on ''Pufnstuf''), he is pursued by the magician's Lidsvillian evil counterpart, [=HooDoo=], played by a pre-''Series/MatchGame'' Charles Nelson Reilly not a hat himself, but living in a giant topper and flying around in a giant opera hat. Produced by SidAndMartyKrofftProductions back in 1971, with their trademark surrealism, the concept bears a suspicious resemblance to an earlier British stop motion cartoon called ''Hattytown Tales''... though it was only two years earlier, and had none of the overarching plot (such as it is) of the classic Sid and Marty Krofft Productions "human lost in a strange land" story, and lacked any "human" characters.

Brilliantly parodied on ''Series/MrShow'' in the sketch "The Altered State of Druggachusetts."

As with many of Sid and Marty Krofft's shows.

* LargeHam: [=HooDoo=]. Most of the other characters are as well, but [=HooDoo=] still outhams them. He's played by ''[[MatchGame Charles Nelson Reilly]]'', for God's sake.

* ComedicUnderwearExposure: In one episode Hoodoo attacks the town with "Big Daddy Hoodoo," a HumongousMecha version of himself. After it's defeated it turns out he'd been driving it while wearing nothing but his longjohns for some reason, and when this is revealed he's so embarrassed he runs away without zapping anybody.



* PlayboyBunny: [=HooDoo=] actually dresses as one of these in one episode. Yes, it's exactly as disturbing as you're imagining it being. The costume was more of a [[FurryFandom female rabbit fursuit]]. Which [=HooDoo=] uses to [[{{Squick}} seduce Raunchy]].
