Relive the Saturday mornings of your youth with the first series from legendary producers Sid & Marty Krofft! When a boy names Jimmy finds himself stranded on Living Island with his magic gold flute Freddy, he is taken in by a talking dragon named H.R. Pufnstuf, who is the mayor of Living Island. Pufnstuf tries to help Jimmy escape, while at the same time tries to avoid the evil Witchiepoo who wants the magic flute all to herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smiles And A Little Sadness January 8, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think the first thing that fans of the H.R. Pufnstuf series might find surprising is that there were only 17 episodes produced, and one of those is what amounts to a "clip" show. When the series first aired, it seemed to go on forever. That was in the days of one episode a Saturday, every Saturday. Somehow, kids didn't quite catch on that it was the same eps over and over.

But the show itself was pretty revolutionary for its time. A Dragon with a heart of gold, a witch with an eye for gold and a kid with a golden flute in the middle.

But that's typical of Sid and Marty Krofft, who provided a gentle touch, a bit of slapstick, some wild sets and costumes and a stellar star in the form of Jack Wild, just off his Artful Dodger turn in the Best Picture Oscar winning "Oliver!" at the time.

If you're a fan of the series, you will like what you see here. As advertised, every episode is presented (though one of them is in rather washed out shape in comparison to the rest for some reason). But even more notable are the special features you get here.

It's rare to get a sit down interview with the Kroffts themselves, but you get to hear them both tell their stories about the days of their childhood careers, and what led them to create their collection of programs. THAT is worth the price of the DVD, because you get to find out a lot about the psychology of these two guys through their candid comments: Sid, who was the Vaudeville star, and Marty, who copied his world famous sibling doing his same act. The interaction between these two could be the most amusing thing in this collection and MUST NOT BE MISSED!

They also slip you a couple of episodes of an early program titled "Irving" about a circus lion and his adventures in and around the Big Top.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!!!! February 11, 2004
Format:DVD
How cool is THIS!!! I have waited YEARS for this. I grew up watching the Sid & Marty Kroft tv show. Showing my age a bit eh? However there were two stand out shows from them. Land of the Lost (that box set is coming this year from Rhino!) and H.R. Pufnstuf! To have these wonderful treasures in a DVD set is like a magic flute to my ears and candy for my eyes. This was an escape for us when we were younger and it is wonderful to be able to go back to that escape now as a grown up. This is also a great gift to share with your young ones you might have now because there is not much anymore on TV that really is offering kids a fantasy to escape into without trying to sell them stuff. So who you call when things get ruff? H.R. Pufnstuff!!!!!!!

This is every episode commercial free including the full intro of Jimmy going down the hill to the boat to magic island. The picture and sound is excellent, typical top notch delivery by amaz. You have to buy it because you don't remember it... HR puffnstuf..

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't watch a little, cuz you can't watch enough! June 2, 2004
Format:DVD
H.R. Pufnstuf may have lasted only 17 episodes, it may have come from the late 60's, and there may be a dozen other things that could be considered negative flaws about this show, but they only add to the infectious charm of this wonderfully orchaestrated live action cartoon.
I bought the complete DVD boxset for my fiancee's birthday recently, because I knew it would be something she would simply love and treasure for years to come. Some may think that the Kroft brothers did drugs in order to create the many zany and trippy programs they created over the years, but trust me, they didn't.
Are there druglike innuendoes and double-entendres placed visually and in the dialogue? well, that's really up to personal opinions and interpretations. But I digress.
This show is definitely worth owning, the dialogue can be a bit cringe-inducing at times but not overtly so, the puns and jokes can go from hilarious to Fozzie-like unBearability within the same episode, but everything is simply top=notch.
Jack Wild is awesome as Jimmy, he brings youthful energy and enthusiasm and seems to be enjoying himself wholeheartedly throughout the series. He is very convincing in his determination to get home or to rescue Freddy Flute from the witch, showcasing a great deal of courage and loyalty to his friends, Freddy, Puf, Dr. Blinky, etc.
Billie Hayes is simply excellent as Witchiepoo, she combines a playful lunacy with a menacing ruthlessness, wrapped up with perfect comedic timing, you can't help but laugh and love the ol' hag.
The costumes are simply marvelous, not just for Pufnstuff, but for everyone: Dr. Blinky, the Evil Trees (specially imported from Transylvania), Orson the Vulture, Seymour Spider, Cling & Clang (perfect examples of Keystone Cops), Judy Frog, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool box design April 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This company did a great job in the packaging of this set, the Pufnstuf bobblehead is in its own packaging which allows it to be placed separately from the dvd set for display.The video quality is the same as the the Rhino set i purchased years ago, only difference is with this set you do not get the complete opening sequence, the shots where Jimmy is running down the hill then spots the ship etc etc, on this set it starts after he is rescued and carries on from there.The bonus episode which features a segment from the Krofft Supershow called Horror Hotel is fun,,,it being a segment only lasts about 12 minutes, all in all it's fun and stars some of the characters from different shows including a Hoodoo look-a-like, who did a REALLY good job!

Had to give this at least 4 stars on the nostalgia factor alone. I vaguely remember watching reruns of this in the early 70s. This is by far the creepiest kids shows ever. Read more
