Sid and Marty Krofft’s Saturday Morning Hits
Sid and Marty Krofft were masters of their craft, and can fairly be counted amongst the deities of Saturday Morning Television. They may be known for their hugely hallucinatory fantasy programs (“H.R. Pufnstuf,” “Lidsville,” “Land of the Lost,” “Bigfoot and Wildboy,” etc.), and weird, weird colorful puppets (which may be counted as low-tech versions of the Muppets), but, more than anything, this was a duo that should be best known for their geniality and playfulness and idiosyncratic sense of humor.
I recently watched a DVD put out by Vivendi Entertainment, which collected single episodes of seven of the Kroffts’ shows, and wrote a review of it for the good people over at Geekscape. I gave a basic rundown for each show, and even included a few videos.
Enjoy it, and be sure to leave comments wherever you will. Read the review here:
