  • Episode Description
  • Milo and his friends crash a party thrown for the Mayor's daughter, Debbie Bledsoe, and they cause the Debbie's new locket to be tossed into the sewer. The zaftig Helga goes after the gift and gets lodged in the pipe, plugging it up like a human cork. The hill people and rescuers work feverishly to rescue... the locket, and leave Helga blocking the main water line -- just one flush away from the great beyond. Helga causes a disruption in the water supply to valley, but the hill people pay no attention -- until their water is cut off too.moreless

    • Helga (stuck in the sewer and surrounded by food): Hey guys! Want some egg foo young? Peggy: Helga, you're supposed to be losing weight! Helga: It's not my fault. All this stuff just fell through the manhole. So I'm not Kate Moss, big deal@ Milo: Kate Moss isn't stuck in a sewer. Helga: Oh I don't know.

    Notes (3)

    • First appearance of Johnny 'The Mayor' Bledsoe.

    • This episode was first broadcast on Cartoon Network on September 1, 2002.

    • During the "Bobbing for Laundry" scene, Biff and Chip are visible in the background for a split second. This is the only time that they appear in this sequence. The reason is that this scene was actually created as a 30-second promotional short, "Birthday," which varied slightly from what ended up in the episode. The original short opened with Pickles saying "Time for an Oblongs birthday party!" Then it went into the bobbing for laundry scene and ended with Bob being pulled out of the basket. The animation and voice-overs in this scene were just slightly different.

    Trivia (2)

    • By what we've heard at this point we can infer that the Debbie's have different dads but the same mom.

    • Mayor Bledso's voice sounds slightly different in this episode than others.
