After taking over Eustace's body. They threaten to crush Muriel with the big toe ending with most sentences with "or the fat lady gets it", forcing Courage to commit many crimes such as bank robbery and crashing a train. Later, Courage defeats the Clutching Foot by licking it, thus freeing Eustace and Muriel. However, Courage had gotten similar talking fungus on his tongue.
The foot fungus make their second and last appearance in Ball of Revenge, this time. They somehow managed to return back as separate being and joined a group consisting of Courage's worst enemies; the Clutching Foot is presumed dead when they fell (along with five other villains) into a chasm caused by Courage's scream.
