Lydia, network censor and loyal employee of the Kids' WB, curses the day when she was assigned to make Histeria! conform to network standards. Her strong sense of social responsibility has led her to a moral crusade for quality kids' television, forcing her to interrupt various sketches to complain about the implications of a phrase or the "dubious historical value" of a topic. She's fought against mispronounciation of the names of Chinese emperors, the use of the term "poop deck", Admiral Farragut's quote "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead". She's notified us that Hannibal should probably have been painted with darker skin, she's kept Billy the Kid from sending the Kid Chorus out for firearms, and she's had confrontations with Mr. Smartypants as to just what exactly he's doing in those pants. Usually seen with short, dark hair and pale skin, wearing a red jacket, white shirt, and blue skirt, Karaoke is attractive despite her disturbing voice and her Big Brother-like tendencies. She occasionally gets to play a few roles, such as Athena, often hosts talk- or game-show sketches, and can be seen in crowds of attractive ladies on the arms of Julius Caesar or Marc Anthony, albeit rarely, since watching over the insane cast of Histeria! is an intensely full-time job.
