Storyline

Young Mark sneaks backstage at a magician's show and manages to fall into a HUGE top hat. The hat is apparently a gateway to another dimension where all the inhabitants are talking, ambulatory hats. The evil magician tries to capture Mark, while Mark and his hat friends try to find a way to get him back to the real world. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

goofy fun
17 February 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

i had almost forgotten all about this show until tvland did a special on sid and mary krofft for a couple hrs this past tuesday. charles nelson reilly and butch patrick a few years removed form his eddie munster days star in this silly adventure about a boy from the real world who curious about a magicians tricks touches his hat and it grows , he falls inside the hat to a world inhabited by creatures made of hats. actually a good kids show and some corny humor made it one of the more goofy krofft creations ... i was really little like 6 yrs old when it came out so i dont remember too much about watching it .
