In this corner: Lidsville
Premise: Boy falls into a hat and is transported to a land inhabited by oversized talking hats and ruled over by a malevolent, remarkably fey green-skinned magician.
Pros: Always suspected hats have lives of their own. Charles Nelson Reilly isn't forced to make double entendres about bosoms while sitting next to Fannie Flagg.
Cons: Having suspicions about living hats confirmed isn't necessarily a good thing. Charles Nelson Reilly is actually less annoying while he's making double entendres about bosoms while sitting next to Fannie Flagg. A character is named "Weenie."
And in that corner: The Bugaloos
Premise: Four British 20-something "teenagers" who are both insects and pop stars (just like Clay Aiken) clash with Benita Bizarre, a crone who lives inside a jukebox and also craves pop stardom, despite the fact that she's being played by a woman old enough to hawk denture adhesive.
Pros: Keeps Martha Raye in Polident.
Cons: The Bugaloos are now living in my attic and Raid isn't working. Image of Martha Raye's overly made-up face seared into my brain cells forever. Now that I'm running photo, image of Martha Raye's overly made-up face now seared into your brain cells forever.
On balance: Both are (fairly) harmless substitutes for mind-altering drugs.
And the winner is...: Lidsville.
Deciding factor: The concept of The Bugaloos just isn't believable.
