The real end of the super-important Arcade of Depravity arc ends with Mike telling Gordon that Mommy thinks that he's a bad influence. When Mike says that he doesn't know why, Gordo suggests that they hang around together and find out.

(Strip Number 565, Original Publication Date, 6 March 1984)

Panel 1: As they walk down the street, Gordon asks Mike if his mom is in a bad mood. Mike says "Naaaa....just the usual."

Panel 2: He then tells Gordon that horrible, gaping MAAAAAAAAA called him a bad influence.

Panel 3: Gordo asks what that means. Mike does not know.

Panel 4: Gordon guesses that they gotta hang around together 'till they figure it out.

Summary: My guess is that we're supposed to think that Mike is being naughty because he's magically supposed to think "Mom doesn't like Gordon so despite the fact that there's nothing wrong with him, I have to spurn him like a rabid dog." What bothers me is that Mira is called pure evil in those horrid, life-affirming bright colours Ethnics blight the world by wearing for expecting the same damned thing of Deedoormat. Also, we can probably expect a Little Lynnie show about a great kid Lynn's mother hated for no real reason she could see.
