Upchuck is happy to celebrate the birth of one of his idols, Harry Houdini, who was born on this day in 1874. Houdini is one of the world's most famous magicians, although I don't think any of his assistants wore sparkly costumes and non-waterproof mascara.
Today also marks two anniversaries, because both "Cafe Disaffecto" and "The Lost Girls" aired on this day in 1997 and 1999. We didn't see any magic shows in either of those episodes, although Daria did demonstrate a pretty impressive degree of mind control over her fellow students in the former and made an aging narcissist disappear in the latter.
