Sweet the Demon appeared in only one episode of 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' ("Once More With Feeling"), in which he forced humans to confront their innermost feelings and desires through song and dance. (This often led to their spontaneous combustion.)

Yet he still was inducted into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame with an honorary membership back in October of 2005. That's because it's my belief that he's responsible for such song-and-dance adventures in Television as 'Hull High', 'Cop Rock', and a childhood fave, 'That's Life' from 1968.

Now it looks as though Sweet the Demon will strike again in Toobworld, this time on Wisteria Lane in Fairview, California.

Here's what Liz Smith said in Variety:

"MARC CHERRY, producer-creator of ABC's 'Desperate Housewives,' wants to keep things blooming, ratings-wise on Wisteria Lane. Cherry is considering a musical episode."

We don't have to see Sweet actually show up to know that he's at work behind the scenes.
My only question is whether or not his demonic influence extends beyond the grave. Do you think we'll be hearing a song from the undead narrator, Mary Alice Young?
