Then Mrs. Phisto comes to the door offering her house cleaning services, including little devil removal. Desperate to be free of their little devil, The Fells sign a contract with Mrs. Phisto, who comes and banishes the Fell’s devil.  Only the Fells soon learn that when you trade the devil you know for one you don’t that you get more than you bargained for.

A story with the most humorous pictures of household mayhem. One sympathizes with the Fells and is relieved when they find a solution to their horrible plight.
