As a child I was simply MAD for the television program H.R. Pufnstuf.

I wanted to live on “Living Island”, and remember trying to make my own Pufnstuf costume for Halloween because the packaged one in the store looked like crap. Somewhere I found puppets of the Kling and Klang characters…probably at a thrift shop.

Now that I am a parent, and have played the DVD to my daughter I can still see the magic that was in that show. Sure it was a wee bit trippy, but it was FUN!

It seems that the Kroffts are trying to make a new feature film starring their beloved dragon mayor, I can’t wait! Just be sure to keep the theme song.
