Scratch 'n' Sniff along with Francine Fishpaw (Divine), d suburban housewife. With a pornographer husband, a pregnant teenage daughter, and a son with a foot-stomping fetish, Francine smells trouble around every corner. That is, until she meets and falls madly in love with Todd Tomorrow (Tab Hunter). Also starring Edith Massey as Cuddles, Francine's best friend, and Mink Stole as the husband's mistress.

Desperate Living:

Things get rocky at the Gravel household, when paranoid Peggy Gravel (Mink Stole) and her murderous maid Grizelda (Jean Hill) kill Peggy's husband. They escape from the law, only to wind up in the crazy town of Mortville, where Queen Carlotta (Edith Massey) presides over a sleazy collection of the misfits, including the vivacious Muffy St. Jacques (Liz Renay). When the Queen disinherits her daughter, Princess Coo-Coo (Mary Vivian Pearce), the citizens of Mortville decide that it's time for a few changes!
