Weenie the Genie - Good-natured but magically inept genie featured on Sid & Marty Krofft's Saturday morning live-action fantasy LIDSVILLE/ABC/1971-73.

Billy Hayes as Weenie the Genie - LIDSVILLE

Weenie lives in a mysterious world of living hats called Lidsville. Unfortunately, she is the captive of an evil sorcerer named Horatio J. Hoo Doo who holds a magic ring that gives him power over her.

Luckily, one day a boy named Mark - while attending a Six Flags over Texas in his world - falls through a magic hat owned by Merlo the Magician and ends up in Lidsville.

Upon arrival, Mark is imprisoned in a dungeon by Hoo Doo for being a spy for the Good Hats. Eventually with the help of Weenie the Genie, Mark steals the magic ring that controls Weenie the Genie and escapes Hoo Doo's clutches.

A grateful Weenie - along with a gang of friendly hats - promises to help Mark find a way out of Lidsville and back to his own home of Jackson City, Texas.
