Did Mark EVER escape??
13 January 2007 | by foxdsm@aol.comSee all my reviews

I recall the satire rag The Onion's article about a 36-year old man who still had Lidsville nightmares... ...I didn't find it funny cuz Lidsville tripped me out as a kid too!!! I loved the show but once again S and M Kroft's theme of missing children ending up stranded in a pleasant but slightly malevolent fantasy land shook me enough to disturb my 8-year old sleep. Primary of my concerns and unresolved childhood traumas is that I never saw the LAST episodes of Lidville!! I think I saw episodes in which our hero get the outside only to return but DI the season end with Mark ever leaving LIDSVILLE?? DID MARK ever make it out of that bizarre land of hats???

I have to KNOW~~~!!
