One Hit Wonderland is where ToddInTheShadows takes a look at "one-hit wonders" of the past. In each review, specific segments include "Before the fame", "The big hit"; "The second-biggest hit" or "The failed follow-up" (for when it all went wrong for the artist); "Did they have any other noteworthy songs?", also known as "Did they ever do anything else?" and "Anything else of note?" (to look at what else the artist has done); and "Did they deserve better?" (Todd's final say on the matter). Just as in Todd's Pop Song Reviews, Todd is enshrouded in shadow to enhance his mystery. In the beginning of every episode, he is seen playing his piano, which he has been playing for many years; and is usually playing the song that is featured in the review. The shadows conceal who he is as he could be just about anyone from a government spy to a humble church official.
