        My mom used to call me 'Witchy-Poo' when I was bad. I have watched it and it is very bad and very strange but that's why I like it. But I'd rather watch 'The Altered State of Druggachusettes'

              My Dad loved this show.

              He wishes it was on TV.

                    Wasn't there a show called the boogaloos and another show about a dune buggy that turned into a super buggy? they were both live action and I think they came on with this show.

                      No. Just a skit from Mr. Show based off of Pufnstuf. But it's not really too far off. The old Krofft shows were pretty out there. Here's Druggachusettes:

                        I watched H.R. Pufnstuf when it premiered in 1969 on NBC. No doubt about it, H.R. Pufnstuf was the craziest tv show for kids I've ever seen. Here I must confess that H.R. Pufnstuf was "too much" for me as a kid. The show was over the top with costumes, music, characters and volume! The show had a laugh track that never stopped. Every line of dialogue followed by endless laughter. H.R. Pufnstuf was loud to my ears and loud to my eyes.
                        Did I like the show? Well, yes - in a way.
                        H.R. Pufnstuf is the show you loved when it was over. Monday morning sitting in class I could not stop thinking about H.R. Pufnstuf. The colors and music kept invading my school time. The magic of H.R. Pufnstuf is that it worked on me Mon thru Fri primming me for my next fix on Saturday morning.
                        Btw, what exactly was H.R. Pufnstuf? You know, the main character, what was it?
                        I thought H.R. Pufnstuf was a talking, dancing alligator. My sister said it was a giant lizard.
                        What ever it was it sure was ugly! Man, I kept waiting for old H.R. to bite Jimmy's head off. His mouth was certianly big enough! Two Jimmys in one chew.
                        OK, OK! H.R. Pufnstuf was a dragon. So please explain to me his cowboy boots? And there was something unsettling about that ugly alligator head with a southern drawl comming out of it! Kinda cool and kinda creepy.
                        Why did I like that show? It didn't make sense. Giant alligator, happy little boy with a happy talking flute - both too happy (if you know what I mean), crazy witch screamming all day, talking trees, talking houses, talking everything and lastly that giant singing birdlady (sounds like Tina Turner) that did a lead-out and a lead-in at every commercial break . . Wow . . Cool!

                        The Eldorado is dead. Long live the Eldorado.

                            Let me be clear. I liked H.R. Puffnstuff. But this is a case of "you don't know what you've got till it's gone" syndrome. I don't think anyone who saw this show could ever forget it. For years I've replayed the theme song in my head over and over. I can still see Jimmy and H.R. dancing across the stage in a world of color. Any show that can do that is pure entertainment!

                                I remember my first time watching H.R. Pufnstuf well the last part of it. Me and my big sister was over my grandmother's house I was one year old in 75. So my cousin my aunt/godmother's son put me on top of the bunk bed to watch tv to watch this strange show. Right off the bat I started to like it but then my cousin got in trouble with his mom for put me up on the top bunk. Oh man those were the best times for me.

                                  One of the things I'm in awe of Cyber Ninja is the guy in the Puffnstuff costume. How did he see anything in that suit? How do you keep from falling all over your co-stars with that tail and the cowboy boots?

                                  And yet that dude in the dragon suit could in a flash busta move on the sound stage and make it look cool! Great memories.

                                    I think that guy in the suit have guts to pull it off without missing a beat Eddstarr. Also he must be sweating like a pig in there for doing alot moving around on the show.

                                      All of those non-anime shows of the 70's were a little weird. HR Pufnstuf, Lidsville, Banana splits, Bugaloos, Siegmund and the sea monsters, Shazaam!, New Zoo Review and many others. Zoom and Electric Company were more normal. The original Land of the Lost was pretty good too. Sid and Marty Krofft were definitely having acid flashbacks in the 70's.

                                        For a while Sid and Marty Krofft were programming gold. Land of the Lost was the show that hooked me. Land of the Lost was heavy with the "blue matte" process used to combine live action with animation. For me the "look" of the show was as entertaining as the plot.
